Yet, another fabulous archi.-design well shown in fine outlines and clarity.
Charming town, well collected the sight on the large square and the fontana.

Strasburgo con le sue bellezze è stato un soggetto che ti ha particolarmente affascinato, anche a giudicare dal gran numero di foto che hai presentato su questa città.
In questa si fa notare l'eleganza della composizione e il piacevole contrasto tra la modernità della fontana e l'aspetto antico delle facciate delle case.
Nitidezza impeccabile e note come sempre eccellenti.
Ciao e buona serata

Belle vue d'ensemble de la grande place Kléber avec sa fontaine et les clochers au-dessus des toits. La photo montre bien l'architecture des bâtiments qui l'entourent. J'aime bien cette photo.

nonostante il cielo non sia dei migliori, sei riuscito a ottenere un ottimo risultato, la piazza è molto bella, con la fontana che zampilla e le belle facciate che la contornano.
La presenza delle persone è molto tranquillizzante, passeggiano serenamente e si godono il paesaggio.
macjake (57412) 2014-04-30 14:16
this again shows that you don't need a blue skyline to produce a fine looking photo.
the white sky actually looks just fine the way it does.
it gives a good contrast for the building tops.
love this style of city, reminds me alot of old Warsaw.
adidas5nb (5413) 2014-04-30 18:06
wow what a beautiful urbanscape this is.fantastic old architecture,and love the pov and the framing.

Hello my frind, In spite of not a good weather, but not always sun shines, nice view of magnificent square with nice fountain. Is it the tower of the cathedral? It looks a bit strange. I can't recognize the place :(. I like these high roofs with windows.

Very, very nice, the houses are simply charming, perfect, detailed photo, excellent composition
snunney (85579) 2014-05-01 4:10
The dancing waters of the fountain make an excellent introduction to the scene. I like very much the colours and detail to be observed in the delightful ensemble of architecture.
Sergiom (61944) 2014-05-01 5:40
Un très beau point de vue sur cette superbe place tout près de la cathédrale. Les détails ressortent bien malgré la lumière difficile. L'architecture alsacienne est vraiment superbe.
adramad (38832) 2014-05-01 9:09
Me encanta el bonito POV, que captaste de esta plaza tan bella y animada, esplendida la vista de la fuente en primer plano, con las magnificas fachadas y las dos torres por encima de ellas, lo único que te faltaba era un cielo azul, para rematar con un éxito pleno.
Muy agradable colorido a pesar del dia gris.
Muy bien equilibrada la iluminación y muy buena nitidez.
Me gusta y me trae buenos recuerdos.
Que tengas una buena tarde y noche.
Un abrazo, amigo mio.

Un beau cadrage qui met bien valeur cette jolie place de cette ville alsacienne remarquable
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-05-02 3:14
very pretty place as the whole city :-) I guess trip to Strasbourg can result in plenty of pictures as the place has so many photo opportunities there. I like the fountain in the foreground which water adds some dynamism to the scene and diversifies the composition. The houses have pretty colors and provide nice settings. Shame about the weather and lack of sun which would make this picture even more attractive, but there is nothing we can do with the weather conditions apart from coping with them - and you managed well :-)))
Thanks for sharing and all the best

Ciao Angel, gran bella vista della deliziosa piazza contornata da fantastici edifici, piacevole composizione con la fontana in primo piano, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio

Very nice capture of this square. Unlike the square here in the U.S. I like the European model of mixing business and housing around the square, we do have some of that in the old cities like New Orleans but not in the newer cities. Good pov and nice details. Well done, tfs.
jemaflor (86040) 2014-05-02 9:42
La photo est bien composée et équilibrée avec ce cadrage et ce plan d'eau en premier plan, belles façades et complément avec la vue des tours, bonne netteté.
abmdsudi (44250) 2014-05-02 9:59
Good infor note to guide us along, A lively old city square compositionally balanced that brings all its features to life and naturally leads to the beautiful building architecture. I feel the fg gives a very important perspective to this shot. Good clarity, rich deep colours and lovely overall contrast. A pleasant shot easy on the eyes, Congrats and TFS.
mesutilgim (86034) 2014-05-02 10:51
Nice capture of this famous place of Strassburg with good pov and layout.
Perfect sharpness and nice framing.
TFS and have a nice weekend
Royaldevon (30745) 2014-05-02 14:29
I visited the beautiful city of Strasbourg for half a day and though I saw much to excite me, obviously, I missed a lot. Thankfully, lots of other people, like yourself, visited Strasbourg so I can appreciate all the special features that I missed!
You have used the buildings very effectively, like an interesting and colourful boundary, to encase the fountains and the statue.
Although the light was not at its best, you have still captured excellent details and natural colours.
Have a great w/e,

Voila une bien belle présentation de la grande place joliment composer avec le bassin d'eau , le monument et l'architectures qui l'entourent qui est très belles et intéressante
SWEETFREEDOM (22878) 2014-05-03 0:47
very nice the fountain in fg and the characteristic houses in bg. fine colors.
annjackman (20091) 2014-05-03 23:19
This looks like a perfectly beautiful square with the old buildings and water fountain. You have captured the colours very well and the picture is very sharp. The architecture is fascinating - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

Strasbourg must offer countless photo opportunities, this is a lovely and interesting view and I like very much the enhanced graphical way you chose to present it. You made the blank sky work to your favour, the outline of the cityscape, the architectural details and the colours stand out superbly. I also like the interesting perspective in the foreground and how you kept so discreet the human presence. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
jcpix (13704) 2014-05-05 19:03
Every time I see a picture of Strasbourg I get a new point of view it seems, and this certainly fulfills another one. :) A lovely collection of architecture used as a backdrop for this beautiful public square and fountain. Everything about this says "Come and visit!" Even under a cloudless grey sky, there's still a lot of color and detail to admire, along with a fun play of water jets. Thanks for revealing yet another slice of the city. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Beautiful square, beautiful buildings.
Good POV and composition.
I like towers.

Good night my Friend.

Splendid postcard from Strasbourg. Excellent POV and framing. I like a lot!
Greeting from Marseilles my Spanish friend.

Hola dear Angel
The architecture here is about as different from that of Andalusia as possible. But very pretty. I like the varied colours and many window. The spires and the centre and right of the frame are beautifully captured and dominate the image very majestically.
serp2000 (40634) 2014-05-14 21:13
Very nice postcard from Strasbourg. This place is very typical for a lot of German and France cities, but I like this special architecture style. Perfect sharpness, a lot of interesting details! Oh, I see this is big city, more 1 million inhabitants! Thanks for the informative note!
fds (8510) 2014-05-18 8:30
ciao caro amico del sud della spagna Strasburgo è una bellissima città la seconda più bella dopo parigi...io l ho vista con una luce e dei colori bellissimi due estate fa e poi nel 2003 di notte con tutte delle proiezioni di luci sui monumenti più belli... eccellente
mkamionka (30870) 2014-05-23 12:17
I have seen today another photo from the same town and I have to say that a different light make a completely different impression. This city feels like a very different place than the one which I have seen with the blue sky. Sadly while in travel we not always have a blue sky :(
Beautiful presentation of this square here, the fountain was nicely used as a foreground, there are so many houses each so different all stylish.
Very well done,
fritzi007 (6619) 2014-06-22 16:03
