Bonjour, cher Ike,
Le cadrage vertical est fort bien vu pour donner à cette réalisation toute la beauté liée à l'environnement.
L'ombre et la lumière participent à la qualité photographique.

Hello Ike, my friend,
Have we ever been neighbours before?
For me, the tree is an important feature, following the thirds line and giving a f/g presence that links, via the street, very well with the tall clock tower. It is interesting for viewers that the street continues under the tower, a little sense of mystery.
You have strong light/shadow contrasts and I think a little f/g lightening would have brought more details to light. (Forgive the pun!)
Have a lovely Sunday,

A nice cityscape with the tower as real eye catcher.
We get on these way a nice perspective and depth picture.
Excellent composition, nice captured, and lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

The magnificent gateway with its clock makes a splendid focal point in this nicely animated photograph. I like the counterbalance offered by the tree. Also, the light and shadow contrast. An interesting set of attractive architecture lines the far side of the street. Have a pleasant Sunday.

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the classic buildings of four stories which stand in a row in a passage and the tall tower with clock and spire. Residents in passage seem to have melted into the atmosphere of this town. And, the tall tree in FG draws out a good impact in this image.

nice and characteristic tower, good p.o.v.

Great composition here, I do like the clocktower with the road going through its base. And the people in the foreground add dimension to the scene.

A fabulous composition with great POV, with this wonderful gate tower, but there are many elements of interest in the image, magnificent series of facades and large graphics of this tree, shading the sky.
Very good image quality, sharpness also.
Enjoy a happy Sunday.

The length of the street is giving depth to the scene. The presence of the people his adding life to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails and colors of the clock tower. The good luminsoity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

you handled the great diversity in the scenery, the space available and the perspective in a very apt and effective way, producing an elegant and comprehensive description of this place and its atmosphere. I like very much how one element leads to the other, how you've filled the bright sky with the foliage and how clearly we perceive the whole scene. A detail that I like very much in this rich and interesting picture is the silhouettes of the two people at the arch in the distance. The people bring in agreeable motion and liveliness. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Hello Ike, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting composition with the interesting tower, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

A beautiful clock tower with elegant spires. At the same time it functions as a gateway to the street behind it.
Very well composed with the tree and its branches that don't obstruct the view anyway.
Best regards, Paul

Good vertical format to frame the tall tree and high tower, nice to see some other old architectures in background too, lively street view with captured a lots of people walking and resting there, thanks for sharing a fascinating view from a beautiful old city.

As you can see from your photos, you like Baden-Wurttemberg, a beautiful part of Germany with Swiss-French coloring & taste.
Excellent view to the Martins-Gate in the center of the town. I like this part of the town with nice restaurants and small shops.
The picture composition with the tree in front is very good and the view up is superb. Nicely framed in vertical format. Well done.
Wish you a very nice week.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Lep pogled na mesto i kulu sa satom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano mesto i arhitektura.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
Nice view of the position and the clock tower ...
A good time recording, contrast and perspective, beautiful colors.
Good work, nice place and the architecture shown.
Nice afternoon and all the best in the new week that started.

Nice photo taken from a good perspective of this beautiful street in Freiburg showing down the length of the street. What a beautiful clock tower with the gateway in the bottom and your DOF leads the eye right through this to the other side. Nice job.
UlfE (14148) 2013-09-30 10:28
A very creative photo. I guess that it was quite impossible to that a good photo with the Martinstor alone. Especially since the tower was in backlight. To include the tree and the people in the street was an excellent idea. TFS and have a fine week!
danos (78348) 2013-09-30 10:35
nice the view as the presentation of the south tower-gate to dominates the image.I like the excellent presentation as the balance of the image created from the left tree.
Sonata11 (31303) 2013-09-30 18:59
wonderful vertical composition of this daily life scene and architecture which you show beautifully perspective. Like the execution and great framework as well. Tfs.
All the best,
fabbs99 (11420) 2013-09-30 19:56
Nice presentation of the town. I like the partially hidden spire of the church.Nice warm colors and sharpness.Very well done,TFS.
emka (64518) 2013-09-30 23:21
Hi Ike, Old looking tower but surrounded with rather new buildings. Funny how the people gathered under the tree, looking for shadow.
Hansaphotos (6131) 2013-10-01 12:29
A lovely street view from this German city. Nicely composed with a fine balance between the tree and the church. Great work! Thanks.
Best regards, Erling
nikkitta (9205) 2013-10-01 13:58
Good presentation of tree and tower going up in a vertical captire
What I like the more is the arch through which also can be seen street life
Also the painted wall on the left is good
Enjoying your trip
Te deseo una buena semana
COSTANTINO (44317) 2013-10-02 1:39
I liked this shot and particularly the
tree in the foreground adding freshness
a shot that has everyhting
the clock tower in the background
creates the best environment
have a nice evening

I have spent few days in Freiburg but it was such a long time ago. I did not take any photos and I don't remember the town at all. So I am really glad to see your picture. Nice presentation of this city gate. It has a lovely architecture and the townhouses are nice too, well leading the eye to the tower.
I like strong natural contrasts.
Very well done!!
josepmarin (56585) 2013-10-03 8:21
a difficult and strong light in this capture, solved skilfully for to reach a good graphical result.
I like the balance between shades and lit areas, the natural colours, the contrast, and the fantastic architectural elements we can see in this composition.
The inclusion of the tree in the framing is a success.
mcmtanyel (5556) 2013-10-03 14:47
That clock tower is a very pretty structure. I like the little flock of pigeons sharing a meal on the ground.
jcpix (6820) 2013-10-07 19:39
I only spent about a half day here, but I remember this street and tower well. Even with the partial obstruction from the tree, I actually like what it's done for this picture...giving me a sense of placement right along with the people on the street. I think the darkened tree trunk with its many "arms" makes for a nice effect against the bright sunlit row of buildings and works well side by side with the tower in this vertical format. A pleasing vantage point here, nicely done! Have a great day ahead.
jmdias (48503) 2013-11-17 4:43
very nice angle catching the tower. there is a typical "german urban mood" in the image.very beautiful that clock and other details we can enjoy here.there are two Brazilian towns paying homage to this town, one in Rio de Janeiro state and other in Santa Catarina (Friburgo a tourist town destroyed by a terrible flood some years ago, and Fraiburgo, that is a big producer of apples)
