The Strasbourg Cathedral has many interesting corners, and almost impossible to take a decent and inclusive photo of it's whole.
So, I'd chosen to show a cropped version of the tower and side wall with its Gothic decorations.
Location of the Cathedral: 48.5818, 7.7505

You're capturing well this architecture by a good angle, good cropping and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Strasbourg Cathedral with both of Romanesque and Gothic architecturein medieval times. It's also impressive in tall tower with spire and its delicate decorations.

The tight frame is putting the belle tower in evidence. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the bell tower. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
mirosu (10224) 2013-12-11 4:31
Excellently captured church from very well selected viewpoint. The view from lover angle makes the church majestic and dominant. The light is perfect, the contrast against blue sky superb, all the details perfect. Very well done.

The close framing helps us concentrate our attention on the spire with its intricate tracery work. The sandstone architecture sits beautifully against the peerless blue sky. Superb rendering of the textural detail and the nuances of tone in the architecture.

a stunning shot of this famous cathedral tower. So much delicate and intricate detail here and all captured so efficiently. Looks amazing! Well done!

it's very interesting to see the elaborate ornamentation of this austere and imposing architecture. Through your presentation of this prominent and significant detail of the Cathedral you 've exalted the fascinating combination. The chromatic palette is limited but the contrast is striking. Sharpness on textures and details is excellent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
PS Good luck with the weather tomorrow and for as long as this foul weather lasts. It's been extremely cold and windy here, it really took us by surprise. It's funny that people of all ages say that they can't remember colder days on Leros...

Intéressante architecture, toute en finesse dans les détails, bon format et belle réalisation
nikkitta (10482) 2013-12-11 11:18
Quite agree with you, so big and high catedral is preferable to concentrate in details
The cropped and vertical format and the, for once, blue sky helps with contrast
Like the incredible and architecture details seen here
I remember the inside clock you show sometime ago

Dobra kompozicija, lepo pokazana Katedrala i detalji na fasadi.
Dobar rad i kontrast,lepe boje.
Good composition, beautiful Cathedral and the details shown on the facade.
Good work and contrast, beautiful colors.
All the best.

I am not usually a fan of the bookmark framing, but I understand why you chose it. And it has worked well here to accentuate the amazing details of this Gothic masterpiece. I especially like the green moss which has grown through age and wet weather on the spires in the foreground. The colours are lovely and rich and it's good to see you got some blue sky!
photoray (7970) 2013-12-11 18:24
Fine vertical view showcasing the ornate Renaissance tower in warm stone construction with multiple details everywhere.

The Church tower looks splendid.Fascinating composition with great exposure, splendid light and wonderful warm colors.Excellent composition, good presentation too. Very well done, TFS.
eldancer1 (22463) 2013-12-12 6:58
Those old buildings are so ornate and beautiful, better the modern glass and steel boxes. Nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.
danos (80336) 2013-12-12 10:30
well chosen the POV of the Strasbourg Cathedral as we can see the tower of it to dominating the image.I like the clarity as the details we can see.
Romano46 (14534) 2013-12-12 11:15
hai concentrato la ripresa sul particolare della torre campanaria , ma hai avuto l'accortezza di inserirla in una bella composizione che include anche parte della chiesa ed in particolare la bella serie di contrafforti che con la successione di guglie fanno da complemento allo sviluppo verticale della torre.
Rilevante anche l'uniformità del colore che fa un ottimo contrasto con l'azzurro intenso del cielo.
Ciao e buona serata

You have assisted us in viewing this fine shot of Strasbourg Cathedral by supplying a perfect means of ascent. The lines are so natural to follow from the bottom l/h corner to the very pinnacle of the steeple.
Lovely sharp details for us to enjoy throughout.
Have a lovely w/e,
carlo62 (22407) 2013-12-13 11:37
bellissimo questo particolare, la cattedrale è molto bella, ma tu ne hai colto l'essenza in questo scatto.
Splendido il taglio e fantastici i colori contro il cielo blu.
SWEETFREEDOM (20590) 2013-12-14 8:12
Interesting close view. Good details and colors.
adramad (32927) 2013-12-15 12:16
Superb POV, which shows great detail of this wonderful tower, so original construction, beautiful balustrade and pinnacles, we see in the lower level.
Wonderful palette with these shades so warm.
Sensational sharpness and brightness.
Good start to the week.

Dear Ike, a remarkable close up on that Gothic style monument, excellent framing and hues, high resolution, a brillant picture, thanks, good evening
krzychu30 (14412) 2013-12-16 23:53
impressive example of the beauty of Gothic style and really excellent close-up presentation!
Works really well in this tight frame and with blue sky as a backdrop for it.
Well composed and detailed shot!
Have a nice day

I had the pleasure to visit Strasbourg and remember walking around this spectacular cathedral so many times and yet I would not be able to recognize it from your picture. My memory is so bad really also because I just took few low quality photos there. Places which I photographed "properly" I remember much better.
Very impressive cathedral and nice presentation focusing here on some details and well demonstrating the richness of the architectural design.
Very encouraging to visit Strasbourg.
jemaflor (76660) 2013-12-18 8:22
Great architecture, very well presented with this vertical format, sharpness and colors are well managed,interesting contribution.
