Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer another view of the daily lives of tourists and locals in the charming village of Riquewihr Alsace, 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.

Hello my friend. first of all thanks for the photo.. the half timbered house are charming and impressive. They are long buildings with their upright roofs:))

This is a nicely composed shot of this beautiful architecture. The vertical format is well chosen here emphasizing the height of the buildings while yielding closeup detail. The people add both life and scale for the image. Your light management is great as is the photo's sharpness.

Buena foto de este precioso pueblo de la Alsacia.
Me gustan los colores y el ambiente de movimiento y ajetreo que has conseguido captar. Muy natural.
Me gusta el formato vertical de la foto que le va muy bien al encuadre... gracias por compartir.

Punchy light contrasts with good sharpness and excellent repetition of the distinctive cross hatched houses. The people add scale and animate the scene. Nice motion blue of the running boy's legs! The vertical format was a good choice. Tfs!

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui saisit bien l'essence même de ce que sont les villages alsaciens sur la route des vins. L'architecture est très photogénique et les touristes omniprésents donnent de la vie.

impossibile rimanere indifferenti al fascino di questa città.
Le facciate e le insegne sono bellissime, bello scatto.

une très belle capture de ces jolies maisons alsaciennes si typiques. Une composition réussie.

Superbes maisons à colombages, bon angle de prise de vue, jolies teintes et bonne netteté.

a lovely presentation of the picturesque town, I like very much your vertical composition and the way you brought the opposite sides of the street together. The architectural patterns are intricate and attractive, they hold our interest for a long while. There seems to be a slight definition problem in the bottom part of the frame but the cityscape is sharp and clear. The people in the foreground draw us into the frame, the human presence in general adds vividness and reference. I also like the graphical quality of the colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

This is a perfect combination of beautiful architecture and street-life. I appreciate that you didn't wait for the street to get empty. There is so much happening among the people in the foreground and the atmosphere of the photo is highly dependant on these persons.

I recognize the purple tone of those wooden-beams built houses, typical for the region.
Well shown the street scenery of this Alsace town.
Used the mild light in an effective manner.
Buen fin de semana,

Hola dear Angel
The people in this photo give us a great sense of scale and dynamism, amidst this really beautiful architecture. You did so well with the difficult light and the image is superbly composed with a great sense of balance.
jcpix (13346) 2014-07-27 10:27
Another charming and absolutely beautiful Alsacian town, there's no shortage of old world charm in this region. An ideal composition which infuses life into the city streets with the many tourists going about their business. Smart use of the vertical composition to pull in as much detail as possible while maintaining the quaint setting. Rich in color, detail and atmosphere. Have a wonderful week ahead. All the best.
