Whether you read the title as the name of the city, or an adjective…Nice views are plentiful. Situated on the fringes of the Old Town is Nices main public square, Place Massena. Although not situated in the square itself, the clock tower of the Palais Rusca can still be seen with ease.
Nothing else in particular or noteworthy about this shot, I was simply trying to come up with a new point of view shooting through the fountains. Pastel colors, a slight sea breeze (that you can’t see unfortunately) and an azur sky all speak to the Mediterranean atmosphere…and hopefully that comes through here.
Thanks for stopping by.

if you tried to achieve different point of view I must say you succeeded very well. The whole composition gained original character by placing the clock tower behind streams of water coming from the fountain. I like how you caught the floating water with plenty of dynamism and some cheerfulness as well.
Apart from the tower one can see a bit of the square and lanterns on the alley. From what I can imagine it is a nice place indeed.
Thanks for sharing

Indeed, very nice and pleasant view this full of charming details, colors, lights. Like the way you built the composition with these captured fountains which created a great frame and contrast for the clock tower. Very well observed and executed scene. TFS!

We have see only vertical objects in this picture, even the fountains look like the water explosions. I like this clever idea to take so interesting composition!
Best wishes from the warm Ural town,

First to my previous photo. My counting was OK. The photo shows only the leading sheep, the whole herd is behind, not captured with my camera. To see almost full herd, see my photo I've posted few days ago.
Now to your beautiful photo from Nice. Excellent view to nice church clock tower. The view is excellently framed by the white water fountains. The excellent light and superb contrast against blue sky add nice hue to the scene.
Very well done.

Very attractive capture of the Church tower between the water jet of the fountain .

Lovely how you shows the church tower between the two water fountain streams.
Wonderful depth and perspective, lovely panorama view about these area.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Nicely framed and composed Nice shot this! Tried to think of as many "nice" words I could hilariously inject into this critique but it is not that easy, so that is as many as I could think of. Was tempted to say this shot takes the biscuit! But I do not know whether you have Nice biscuits in the US, so would have been a nicely wasted comment. Do like your POV here it works perfectly. I travelled through Nice many years ago on one of my treks around Europe, so have very little recollection of this church or the fountains, but it looks nice! (grin). Really should make a modern day trek around Europe and catch up on all the things that I did not see in my younger alcohol blurred days.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical. Le regard passe juste entre les deux jets d'eau pour admirer cette superbe tour qui brille sous le soleil chaud de Nice.
holmertz (53606) 2014-05-15 6:58
This is a fine shot even though there are no people doing funny things. It's an original and well considered composition with a good rhythm created by the alternating splashes of water. This shows that even when taking "postcards" it helps to do some thinking before.
danos (98585) 2014-05-15 7:39
charmy and pleasnt the view of the fountain that from the advatange POV to looks like to 'jumb' until the hight bell tower.I like the way that teh fountains outline perfect against the blue sky with the vertical format to makes the image even more effective.

A nice premeditated shot of the two fountains jets and the clock-tower between, Jason.
Blue sky gave great back-decor to the white water. Excelent upwards move made by the water-jets.
Fine photo collected.

Ah ça sent meilleur ici :--)) en plus c'est très beau, bien vu et pris la tour horloge entre les jets d'eau, de plus la lumière et les couleurs sont belles, c'est joli Nice, plus jeune avec un ami nous avons fait toute la cote du sud de Marseille a Monaco à moto, c'était génial,
10h chez toi, la journée commence et chez moi elle fini, c'est le début de soirée (19h), il fait soleil, puis il pleut, et puis ça recommence, le temps ne sait plus ce qu'il doit faire :-))
Belle journée ami du soleil

Hi Jason, I like this interesting composition with the fountain in the foreground and the beautiful tower line, very well captured in this great and beautiful photography. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light, color and quality. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

Clever title, I lke that :) and it's just as you say, lovely light, gentle pastel colors, and a great emphasis on the height aspect too, with both the fountain and the campanile during the eye onwards and upwards. That beautiful blue sky is a perfect backdrop to the colors too, and makes me want to jump into that fountain like a five year old.
Have a fun friday.
Gigidusud (21151) 2014-05-15 14:41
Superbe ce clocher qui se dresse au milieu des jets d'eau de la fontaine. J'aime beaucoup les couleurs aussi. Une belle capture mon ami!
nikkitta (17066) 2014-05-15 17:05
Hola monsieur Jason
Not time to jokes now but to congrat you by the vertical format, composition
Like the tower in the middle of the water acting as a kind of creative frame
A nice capture , only the sea breeze is missing
Tres reussi mon ami du désert
Поздравляю и ведут себя
PaulVDV (29209) 2014-05-15 18:39
A very pleasant image.
Beautiful contrasting colours.
The red and white church tower is excellently placed between the high water jets.
Best regards, Paul

Nice pun! Nice photo, too! Honest, I mean it! Nice tower - sometimes I exasperate even myself. Seriously, I really like the POV that sandwiches the tower between two water fountains. Nice! (Oh, ppalease, stop!)
PS. Nice sky, too!
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-05-16 0:39
that's what I call to have a good eye my friend!
Really love the way you placed the tower between the fountains-it makes the scene takes on an unique,majestic look for me.
Beautiful architecture,relaxing mood and blue sky-like you wrote-pure Mediterranean atmosphere.
Have a great weekend

Intersting parallelism betwween the waters and the campanile
Very good composition
Nice tight frame
carlo62 (49325) 2014-05-20 0:01
bel colpo, un ottimo occhio e una bella esecuzione.
Il campanile è perfettamente allineato all'acqua della fontana.
Uno scatto originale.
