There is much to see in this well composed image. The river boat makes a good focal point before we go on to take in the rest of the scene including that interesting array of architecture in the background. The image is well presented with good light, colours and clarity.

Tu as su saisir ce bateau sous l'angle parfait avec un très bel arrière plan avec toutes ces maisons à colombages.Malgré le temps gris, les détails ressortent très bien.

very pretty view and well organized composition with load of interesting details. The chosen POV is very good and gives us very pleasant panorama of this lovely city. The colorful flowers bring some subtlety to this scene and stylish lamp post add some elegant touch.
Very good sharpness and natural colors.
Thanks for sharing

colpisce in particolare la delicatezza dei colori forse anche per effetto della giornata nuvolosa che contrasta con la ricca distesa di fiori variopinti che ornano l'attracco del battello.
Il battelo sembra essereil protagonista della fotografia ma in realtà il soggetto su cui cade l'attenzione è la bella successione di case che si allinea lungo il corso d'acqua con i diversi stili che si alternano in maniera aremoniosa.
Piacevole nitidezza e bella composizione altri pregi dello scatto.
Ciao e buona giornata

It's a very beautiful picture from Eastern France. The architecture is very attractive with rows of flowers. It must be pleasant walking on the river bank. Thanks for sharing.

beautiful presentation of this section of the town,with the canal to creates depth and perspective in the image.The bouquet of the colourful flowers that decorates the pedestrian that leads in the anchor boat makes the image even more effective.

Excellent view over the water channel to beautiful buildings behind. Nice arrangement with the white boat and the street light in the front. The light is excellent and the deep DOF perfect.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice weekend.

Una composicion de gran belleza, que esta ciudad ofrece en tantos puntos, captaste un gran POV con el barco y las flores de la pasarela y un fondo maravilloso con esa sucesion de fachadas.
Justo en la calle que baja a este embarcadero, desde la plaza de la catedral es donde teniamos el hotel, con lo cual esta imagen me es muy familiar.
Un perfecto colorido muy natural.
Una imagen muy luminosa y con una óptima nitidez.
Buen trabajo. Me encanta.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
Un fuerte abrazo.

I have to admit, Strasbourg is a beautiful and very engaging city. I remember walking along the canal side that you have photographed. I like how you have used the lamppost as a an anchoring point, offering a double lead, along the canal bank to the bridge, or up the jetty to the waiting boat.
You have included a lot of very interesting details, giving a solid impression of the character of this fine city, for those who have never been there.
Have a great w/e,

Even from a slightly longer distance, this is undoubtedly a picturesque city. I enjoy this point of view for the addition of flowers lining the ramps to the boat, making the scenery even more colorful and appealing. I imagine this would be a difficult ride to sit back and relax when you have a camera in hand to capture all of the beauty that abounds?? :) A well balanced frame on all accounts, a pleasing look upon Strasbourg and its river cruise. Enjoy the week ahead. Take good care.
