Just ahead of the Quai-des-Moulins in Strasbourg, stood on the Rue Saint-Martin bridge over the Ill( the canal is being pronounce i-ll), and was impressed with the view of the wooden-beams complex of houses on the waterfront.
Abundance of greenery and flowers adorned the typical houses.

A fine capture of this much photographed row of buildings that one cannot tire of admiring. The oblique perspective shows them to good effect. Pleasing pastel tones and very good sharpness.

I recognize that beautiful place in Strasbourg.Nice oblique line formed by the half-timbered houses.The water level adds a dramatic note to the picture, almost a flood. Very well done. TFS.
Have a nice day.

Looks like the water is flowing very fast in this canal, I hope that's a dam on the left to control the flooding. Nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.

The sky was not on your side that day. Nevertheless the picture is nice and very well framed.
Good weeek-end of France.

I always wonder, when I see pictures from the canals of Strasbourg, what it is like to live in a house like this and what the view looks like from the windows. I like your picture and its title, this picturesque neighbourhood by the canal is very attractive. You framed the view very aptly and divided the frame with good sense of balance. Definition is superb and the water texture very intriguing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

un angolo di Strasburgo classico, ma sempre molto bello e piacevole da osservare.
Il cielo non è dei migliori, ma nell'insieme è una bella foto.
PS bella la tua versione della porta di San Gimignano, grazie per il commento

Good Evening Ike,
I had no understanding of the beauty of Strasbourg before I went there. It is a beautiful city. You have shown, here some of its delightful attractions, the timber structured houses, the abundance of flowers and the canal, which circles the centre.
Just imagine living here, watching the water traffic and dining el fresco in this water-side restaurant.
You have chosen a lovely aspect, where the canal makes a leisurely guide across the scene, leaving time to absorb the details of the old buildings, full of character.
Have a lovely w/e,

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a row of tasteful architecture in medieval times which is standing along the calm canal. It's also impressive in lattice design, triangle roof and many windows for houses. And, the flower whis is put to the landing and house terrace draws out a gentle atmosphere in the whole.

Good night and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

The length of the river is giving depth to the compoasition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the architecture of the buildings. The wash out sky does not hurt the ouput of the colours. Have a nice day.

We get a lovely architecture picture with the half-timbered facades.
Also the movement in the river gives an extra touch to the picture
Everything is perfect as well as light and composition.
An interesting image of a nice place with good sharpness, depth and quality
Very well composition, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
sandpiper (6788) 2014-03-15 2:09
yes, some very nice architecture indeed. It certainly looks like a nice place to live. Good composition
Didi (55021) 2014-03-15 7:06
Good point of view on this part of the old town
I can see in the reflections that there was a little part of blue sky with clouds
The dream of a photographer is to try to make a balance between sky exposure and the rest of the picture
In this case I make some tests with different under exposure -1/3, -2/3 -1 and I make my choice on the best result I never trust the automatic mode
Cricri (101211) 2014-03-15 10:46
Belle vue de ces terrasses sur l'eau, les façades en colombages qui fait le charme de l'Alsace, bon POV, très belle présentation
adramad (35301) 2014-03-15 12:11
Great POV of one of the most charming corners of the channel, this group casascon its charming half-timbered facades, are ideal with the variety of colors, all in pastel colors, the first is the restaurant is different and a special charm.
Ideals these charming colors, in a picture perfect light, and with optimum sharpness.
Very good job. I love it.
Enjoy the weekend.
All the best.
mkamionka (29199) 2014-03-15 14:33
sorry for the out of the optimal weather which you had there but you did a great job anyway. You have composed a lovely scene here encompassing some typical architecture. Nice POV across the channel which provides a bright reflection in the foreground.
Very well done,
ChrisJ (94784) 2014-03-16 9:04
Nice blue grey sklight reflections in the canal with good sharpness and a nice angled pov that adds deep perspective receding into the distance top right from bottom left. I like the tiered wedding cake structure of the architecture at left. Tfs!
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-03-16 9:25
the buildings have been captured from good POV and at very nice angle to make the composition more interesting. I love this architecture and sometimes at the first glance it looks like houses drawn by children. It would be fun to live there for a while. Nice colors and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
nikkitta (13220) 2014-03-16 16:28
Yes, as everyone says a good POV and diagonal capture with interesting perspective, but what I like the more are the wooden terraces or balconies on the water
Specially attractive is the one at the left with three of them, love also the kind of wooden construction between second and third, must they be muslims and it would be the place for women
Well done, enjoy watching
Of course you can post a WS, I like this photo but can t improve it
Thanks for asking
krzychu30 (15332) 2014-03-17 0:48
not only the architecture of these houses is beautiful,also their location is unique and so picturesque.I can only envy their inhabitants to have such marvelous scenery and views from the window:)
Nice composition,which captures well the character and atmosphere of this part of Strasbourg.
Have a nice day
Gigidusud (13251) 2014-03-17 2:13
Beautiful postcard from Strasbourg. Excellent POV on the Quai-des-Moulins and splendid reflections on the canal. I like it!
Have a nice week my friend.
jcpix (11440) 2014-03-25 20:48
Not sure what to say that hasn't already been mentioned...it really is a beautiful corner of town that has a timeless attraction. Makes me wonder if the original founders built this city with photography in mind, you just can't go wrong here it seems. :) What a great place to have a meal too, right on the river with such lovely and colorful surroundings. A fine composition which takes us from left to right with ease, enjoying the splendor all the way along. Have a great day ahead. Take care.
Thanks for the WS suggestion today. The crop certainly does put focus squarely on the artwork.

jmdias (52524) 2014-05-25 10:46
Impressive architecture. Interesting how the big houses are ever at side of the canal, I can imagine how this place is during the big floods. interesting image, well done and beautiful.
