Rouen, in northern France on the River Seine, is the capital of the Haute-Normandie (Upper Normandy) region and the historic capital city of Normandy. Once one of the largest and most prosperous cities of medieval Europe, it was the seat of the Exchequer of Normandy in the Middle Ages. It was one of the capitals of the Anglo-Norman dynasties, which ruled both England and large parts of modern France from the 11th to the 15th centuries. It was here that Joan of Arc was executed in 1431. People from Rouen are called Rouennais.

A superb close-up of the different timber houses. It seems that do not know how to built vertical houses!

Bien vu et le zoom donne une belle impression de solidité et d'entraide entre les maisons pour se supporter !
Quand on pense que dans le "vieux Rouen", et au Havre, elles étaient encore plus nombreuses ces maisons... et pareil à Paris....

The different facades' colors and decorations created a very interesting visual effect of this shot. Well framed and cropped scene gave an eye-catching result. Great work!

This is a nice composition where you have used the colourful façades to create an almost abstract pattern. Well seen and well executed.

pas facile à réaliser ces immeubles et façades de couleurs, d'ailleurs on pourrait penser grâce à ton graphisme que ce sont des livres rangés en bibliothèques

Joli coup de zoom sur ces belles façades rouennaises. Tu aurais peut-être pu redresser l'image à droite?

Nice closer view on these old Rouen timbered houses. You used very well the perspective lines to add depth and the light is very beautiful.

ciao andrea. so it is, also a great joy to visit your gallery. i don't know how i missed your recent posts. this one is a graphical stunner with its use of perspective on rhythmic vertical architectural elements and the leaning window which smartly breaks the rhythm. very nice light and colors.
