that's a very graphic shot and a most picturesque scene. Good clarity and sharpness, it's a pity the sky is white but still the view is marvelous.
Have a great New Year!

One can never tire of seeing this beautiful architecture. Your composition shows it to perfection. Despite the milky sky the image is well lit and has excellent colours and clarity. I especially like the framing offered by the colourful flowers and the reflections.

J'en ai faite une très semblable au mois de septembre. Quel bel endroit que cette petite France avec ces magnifiques maisons à colombages. De très beaux reflets dans les eaux du canal.

A beautiful scene, these buildings are wonderful and ones I only get to see here on TE, so a pleasure to view this. The wooden facades are so cool, and I love that included the touch of color from the flowers at lower left as well as the deep reds on the house to left as well. Lovely work as always.

great view, the composition is very spectacular and I like the atmosphere and the splendid architectural details,
jcpix (13908) 2014-01-04 21:03
As with some previous pictures, despite the overcast skies, you've managed to still showcase the beauty and charm of the city. In fact, a smart idea to start off the composition depth with some strong color in the foreground corner to enhance the picturesque setting. A striking display of pattern throughout the middle section and a beautiful reflection on the river. All in all, a welcoming look on Strasbourg. :) Hope you had a wonderful holiday season. All the best in 2014.

Beautiful corner in the old town Strasbourg, with the half-timber beams houses, and flowers decorating the railings.
Fine shot with a good part on the water reflection, used the low-light condition in its utmost possibility.

Hello Angel. Half-timbered houses are really very attractive. Especially in the northern parts of Europe, you can admire this architectural style. The photo pleases me very well. The inclusion of the flowers in the foreground is excellent.
Best rgds, Wolfgang .... and a happy NEW YEAR

Hola amigo Angel.
Muy bien captado uno de los rincones mas bonitos de la Pequeña Francia, esas flores en primer plano son el toque perfecto a un fondo maravilloso.
Un perfecto colorido muy natural, a pesar del dia gris.
La imagen es muy luminosa y tiene una buena nitidez.
Me gusta y me hace recordar lo que disfruté el lugar.
Te deseo una buena noche de Reyes y que sean generosos contigo, yo mañana en el desayuno vere que tal se han portado....
Un fuerte abrazo.

beautiful postcard from Strasbourg here. Pleasant summer view. Unusual old architecture. Fine colors and composition with flowers on FG. Good presentation.
Have a nice evening.

a well composed and balanced view of this very attractive district of Strasbourg. You made a bold and effective decision regarding the exposure and the elimination of the sky. Your picture gained a graphical aspect, the cityscape is outlined elegantly and the patterns of the timber decoration create a vibrant impression. I like very much the perspective, the reflections and the way the colours of the natural elements stand out. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
