Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer this view of the daily lives of the tourists and the locals of the charming village of Riquewihr Alsatian in France. Hope you like it, then some letters on the villa.
Riquewihr in French, Reichenweier in Alsatian, is a town and French commune located in the department of Haut-Rhin, in the Alsace region.
For its beauty and attraction is one of the people identified by the association "Les plus beaux villages de France".
Undoubtedly, Riquewihr is one of the most charming places of Alsace.
It has just over one thousand residents and is about 50 kilometers south of Strasbourg, Colmar between this city and another of the towns of Alsace preserving places of remarkable beauty.
The city has a reputation as a producer of wines, especially Riesling, which is cultivated since ancient times in the countryside that extends around the place, which still retains some of its medieval defensive system.
The experts say that the secret of the wine quality is its geographical location on the sunny side of the Vosges, sheltered from the cold west.
The town retains a special charm and simple.
The urban area retains remarkable flavor houses, some are of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Many of the buildings show an artistic ornament, but most are simple and have the charm of the rural architecture, with its half-timbered and flowered windows.
The town has a local history museum and a small hotel offer.

A lovely street in this very nice looking town. There was not much you could do to the grey sky, but the light in the street is very good and makes the colours pleasantly mild. As always the people in the street make the scene more lively and attractive, although I admit that there are so many fine details among the houses that the view is perfectly interesting in any case.

se non sbaglio, questa è la strada che conduce al parcheggio esterno alla città, ricordo la chiesa e le belle strade contornate da splendide facciate.
Bella foto, riprende tutto quello che ho detto, il cielo non era dei migliori, ma le facciate fiorite sono sempre un bello spettacolo.

L'image me rappelle de bons souvenirs de ma visite de Riquewihr l'année dernière. J'aime bien ce point de vue sur les bâtiments de cette rue avec l'église au fond. Bien fait.

A pleasant animated scene with some lovely architecture to admire as well. Good point of view onto the focal point offered by the clock tower.

Quelle belle petite ville alsacienne où il fait bon marcher tout en admirant toutes les beautés qui nous entourent. Le cadrage est parfait et les couleurs bien saturées.

Una imagen sensacion, con la magnífica perspectiva de esta bonita calle, con la iglesia, centrando el plano, una preciosidad todas estas fachadas, llenas de detalles, macetas y enredaderas dan un precioso toque natural, la presencia de toda esa gente da un bonito toque vital.
Muy bonito colorido en unos tonos muy eficaces.
Buena gestion de la luminosidad y una buena nitidez.
Esplendida imagen. Mis felicitaciones.
Que tengas un buen dia.
Un fuerte abrazo, amigo mio.

Outstanding clear photo through town alley in Alsace typical architecture's, Angel.
The clock-tower prominently above, and view in depth, along with people strolling - all culminate to a wonderful scene.

angel hello my friend..wonderful scene for us,what a beautiful part of this town..love it! have a great day! dale
willperrett (11918) 2014-05-07 11:28
Lovely town: I hope you tried a few Rieslings (and Gewürztraminers!). The street is populated which makes it more interesting - though the architecture is interesting enough in its own right. Shame the sky was so overcast and "dead", but there's nothing you could do about that, short of dropping in a new sky in PP! A charming photograph.
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2014-05-07 11:39
one of the most crowded village of the route de vin, but in this picture you were lucky to have few people or cars around. nice and characteristic buildings.
Waylim (25436) 2014-05-07 16:25
This is a lovely photo of a place where both tourists and locals both enjoy. I tis a charming location and easy to understand it is popular. I would love to be there too. The cobble stone street, the colorful wall of the houses and hotels with flower boxes really adds to the esthetic of the street. You have an excellent POV with the church tower at the end reachin up to the sky. The vertical format really accentuate the hieght of the tower.
Beautiful and lovely composition with good quality.
npecanhuk (78927) 2014-05-07 18:49
Wow! What a wonderful street! What a beautiful picture!
Sharpness, colors, vertical format and composition are true highlights here that truly pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-05-08 0:34
what a gorgeus cobbled street with all these lovely buildings and many interesting and pretty details. I like to discover one by one all of them: the flowers on the window sills, the signs hanging in front of the restaurants, the lanterns. Some people in the picture are definitely tourists -and placing them in the composition adds to the character of the photo.
Very nice colors and well chosen POV.
Thanks for sharing
Royaldevon (43965) 2014-05-08 5:13
You were right to choose a vertical format for this shot, for it has allowed you to emphases the height of the buildings and the narrowness of the street.
A very nicely angled shot with excellent clarity and natural colours.
The inclusion of the people animates this attractive shot.
Have a great day,
tatadalou (7459) 2014-05-08 7:07
Mostras con habiledad la belleza de este pueblo de Alsacia. La luz no era optimal y quizas hubiera mejor hecho cortar el cielo para concentrarse en la arquitectura de la calle, sin preocuparse de la iglesia. Sin embargo, la foto es muy bella.
PiotrF (23138) 2014-05-08 9:07
Nice urban view of Alsace. Lovely street in this very nice looking town. Very nice composition
nikkitta (17068) 2014-05-08 10:11
Muy buena e informativa nota acerca del Rieling, una variedad de vino que me gusta por ser fresca y frutada
La gente de la foto parece y esta "sin palabras", solo admirando la belleza de la calle
Me gusta tu exprto POV en vertical
Se piede asi admirar la torre en toda su altura
Exelente trabajo, GPC, Bravo

Ciao Angel, bella prospettiva sulla splendida chiesa, piacevole composizione con tanta gente, ottima nitidezza, splendida luce e magnifici colori, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hola querido Angel
Even from the architecture, I could tell that this was the Germanic part of France, the Alsace. The architecture is certainly very different from the rest of France and it is quite intriguing. Beautiful colours and details. I like the vertical frame a lot and the characteristic wrought iron and door archways. Very pretty.
Thanks for sharing, un abrazo

Une bien belle image de ce charmant village d'Alsace, bon format qui inclus l'entièreté de la tout de l'église, beaucoup de détails a voir et de couleurs
pili51 (1853) 2014-05-10 8:37
primero quiero disculparme por mi tardanza en contestar a tu comentario, pero últimamente voy muy atareada y no tengo mucho tiempo para dedicarme a TE.
Esta toma es muy bonita y tiene una buena perspectiva.
Me gusta la toma estrecha vertical y el ambiente con los turistas que has captado.
La arquitectura es encantadora en este lugar, lástima del día, pero cuando viajamos pasa esto, no podemos escoger el tiempo como el hotel :-)
Un elegante marco acompaña tu bonita composición, amigo mio.
Te felicito es una buena foto.
Un abrazo desde BCN.
ourania (51103) 2014-05-12 11:56
you balanced the perspectives, the angles, the colours and the details in a truly exquisite way, the picturesque setting looks busy but also neat and the graphism of your description is so attractive. It's interesting how the blank sky made the architectural setting and its details stand out even more. There's great depth and the people look stunningly natural surrounded by the graphism. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-05-12 23:54
you knew exactly how to present and to bring out the whole beauty and charm of this narrow street my friend!
Truly beautiful architecture and superb presentation of it.The POV,vertical format as well as the quality of the image are first class.
Wish You a nice day
claudeD (41890) 2014-05-16 7:56
very fine picture from Riquewihr and its amazing old streets and houses. I did not know if you have the information that a big fire has destroyed recently 3 or 4 of the old houses in the main street of the city.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
serp2000 (45970) 2014-05-16 10:53
Well, I can give 20 points today only. And I think I can give my last voices to your photo. I like this presentation of Alsace. Excellent composition, very informative note.
Have a nice WE!
tyro (26142) 2014-05-18 9:33
You have written a very interesting and informative note about this place and given us a beautiful photograph to illustrate it.
Your composition is excellent and the lovely colourful buildings are perfectly arranged within the frame. I love the inclusion of people because they give a wonderful human interest to the picture as well as providing a fine sense of scale.
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
