Corner of Gernsbacher strasse and Jesuitenstaffeln in Baden-Baden, 48.762, 8.24048 on the map.
Otto von Bismarck statue is looking down the small road.
The fine architecture around caught my sight, raised the camera just above the people/tourists heads strolled the pedestrian roads intersection.

Good morning Ike,
Nice shot of this narrow little street with its wonderful architecture and the dominating statue of Otto Bon Bismarck in the background . Good POV showing deep perspective of the street with pedestrians milling around.

A street view is not easy with all these people, where have to you make the cropping of the people, not easy.
But I think that here the buildings and the watch are the most spectacular subjects.
Excellent frame and high quality.
Very well composition, good presentation. TFS.

Good Morning Ike,
Definitely not an easy shot but well taken.
The inclusion of the clock was the master stroke; it grabs immediate attention and creates an impression that for these busy people, it is a race against time! A fine viewpoint, guided initially by the blue canopy, takes us smoothly up the strasse with lots of details to absorb.
Have a good day,

Like Bev, I also like the presence of that clock. It makes an excellent frame and adds to the story. An interesting set of attractive architecture to be seen here. A well presented image with good colours and sharpness.

You have captured well a daily activity scene with the people walking the pedestrian street. The length of the streeet is giving depth to the compositionb. It is clear and precise. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Beaucoup de détails architecturales a voir, le cadrage bien penser en incluant horloge, une rue intéressante a voir et bien présenter

a fine and interesting composition of details. Your picture looks like a wide urban view and it does give us a good idea of the architectural character of this place as well as a glimpse at daily life there. After the first impression, the observation of details becomes captivating and the excellent clarity you've achieved makes detail spotting delightful. You've turned the subdued and moody lighting into a positive quality that has offered a graphical aspect to the view. The bright blue shade is a marvelous addition. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Hi dear Ike
I love pedestrian roads, they are always so full of interest, busy people and wonderful culture. As here in your photo. iLife your POV, taking a higher aim at the buildings. The characteristic architecture is very striking and you have captured beautifully the essence of the "European Town". Thanks for sharing, have a lovely Friday.

You're capturing well this passage by good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see classic architectures with the outer wall of gentle color in the both sides of a passage and historical/tall statue in near center. It seems to the space which time passes slowly. And, the church seen the upper-left draws out a good impact.

Very nice view to beautiful narrow street surrounded by nice old building, so typical for Baden-Baden. Beautiful and exciting place to visit. Did you go also to Casino (of course without camera)? I like the arrangement with the street clock and the blue sun shade in front. Well done my friend.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

I like the blue awning against the rest of the photo. Nice street scene from Baden.

Hi Ike !!
This place is very dear to me...... I visited it more than 35 years ago..... and its name is probably the only one that I remember from that trip.
Your photo packs a lot of details... so much to look at...... of course I like the Architectural content and the soft colours.
Looks like that day you had no rain !!!!!

I had to laugh a little bit...I can't tell you how many times I've done the same thing to try and eliminate the obstruction of tourists. :) This worked well here because we still get that sense of life and action with just a hint of people, while the main point of focus remains on the splendid and beautiful architecture. The blue awning in the foreground makes for a strong and striking contrast against the more muted tones, but does not take away from the overall effect. I like the idea to include the clock lamp on the right, it feels to add just the right touch to go along with this scene. Nicely done! Hope you're having a pleasant weekend. Take care.

Quite agree with you, good idea if you are tall or situated in a high
Still that way you managed a good composition, besides the buildings ,my view goes from the clock till the tower
( not have time to watch all your photos from this great trip, but step, by step, arriving)
Muy buena semana

Baden Baden is a marvelous place to visit apart from its spectacular Casino and the expensive spas..the streets are marvelous and the architecture is admirable.
only one thing is missing from your very attractive picture, a blue sky maybe??
