Noon-time in Freiburg Rathousplatz, people taken advantage of a sunny day, after the severe rains downpour days before, enjoy a Café outdoor's.
A beautiful 16th century built, called the "Neues Rathaus", simply because there was a 14th century older building the "Altes Rathaus", on a diff. location in town.
The place on map: 47.9961,7.8493
This is my last picture of this town from our trip in 2013, attached here is a Wikipedia page about Freiburg.

non si può chiedere di meglio che un posto a sedere ad uno di questi tavoli per godere del sole e di questa splendida piazza.
Bella l'architettura sullo sfondo e belli i riflessi sulle finestre.

The presence of the people is adding life to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the building. A good management of the strong light which does not hurt the output of the colours. Have a nice day.

Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A pleasant spot to sit and have a refreshing beer or glass of wine. I like the animated atmosphere and the framing offered by the nicely lit tree. Good colours and sharpness.

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the tasteful architecture with clock and spires in medieval times, and outdoor café restaurant in square. It looks like a sunny day when seeing the sunlight and green leaves. So, many residents are enjoying the air of early summer in town.

The blue cyan belltower contrasts well against the salmon pink building at right. The people add scale and animate the scene. Good sharpness and the fg yellow green branch protruding at right adds depth and frames the fg nicely. Tfs

I remember Freiburg from my trip to Portugal many years ago. I was coming back home and that was first German town I stopped. I was quite lucky because there was an October Fest going on then and I had one of the funniest days in my life in this place :-) Your picture has brought up these memories. These people sitting at the square look exactly as us then. I also like the architecture of this place - very typical for the area and you presented in nicely in every day scene.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

Hello Ike, very good view of this interesting scene of everyday life, with an interesting and beautiful building in the background, beautifully captured in this great and beautiful photography. Interesting picture with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Your use of the signpost is an effective lead, pointing in the direction of the activity and the buildings, for our attention. I think the emergence of the sunshine has had a definite, rousing effect on the population, for this seems to have a festival atmosphere, very similar to your recent shots from home. It is busy, it is friendly, it is very much a time for al fresco dining!
The building makes an interesting backdrop for your shot and you have kept the details sharp for our appreciation.
Have a great w/e,

A cafe street scene in Freiburg,we see lots of goings on people enjoying the sunshine.
We can also marvel at the beautiful Architecture of the building, and want to explore up the little side street.

We could use a sunny and warm day around here, it warmed up the last two days but it's not sunny. Before that, we had a few sunny days but the temperatures were well below freezing. I don't know if i am just getting old or if this winter truly outlived its welcome. Of course, in my heart of hearts, winter is never welcome. I will enjoy a few days of snow but that is my limit.
Thanks for a cheerful photo.

A lively scene, with the presence of so many people on the deck, when I visit last year, the place was not as lively as it was a rainy day, the City Hall is splendid and you've captured here in a POV gorgeous.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Enjoy the weekend.

Beautiful place with splendid architecture and great details. Nice summer scene with splendid light, well captured. Well done!
Have a nice Sunday my friend.
mirosu (12684) 2014-03-29 18:58
Excellent view up to beautiful Rathaus building. There is an excellent light and color contrast. The arrangement with the green tree and the people enjoying the nice place and sunny weather is very good.
I'm going to Schwarzwald next month, not far away from this place, hope to have a cup of coffee with Schwarzwald Torte there,
Very well done.
Wish you a nice Sunday.
PaulVDV (20753) 2014-03-29 21:47
A very lively Rathaus Square and full of atmosphere!
The town hall itself is a beauty to look at and you framed it well with the branches of the tree.
Best regards, Paul

Bravo et amitié
ourania (27306) 2014-03-31 9:51
this building is very attractive and surely has a dominant role in the cityscape. You are presenting it with excellent definition that makes its study most interesting. I also like how it takes almost the entire space of the frame, how you enhanced the sense of depth with the foliage and how the row of full tables extends in the frame in a smoothly dynamic way. You have captured fine urban colours and a delightful sunshine. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
fabbs99 (16125) 2014-03-31 10:22
Nice outdoor cafe with an impressive building in the BG.I love the human presence in the scene,which gives animation to the frame.Very well captured and presented.TFS.

I like people down there everybody

jcpix (11726) 2014-03-31 20:10
I think I might actually have a picture of this myself. Obviously mine didn't turn out this well, or I would have remembered much more clearly!? :) No matter, I love the view upon this square...you composed it nicely to include the lively crowds enjoying the natural light and warmth after the rains. The beautiful architecture makes for a most pleasing backdrop to this setting, and details some of the intricate design with clarity and focus. Hope you stopped and soaked up some of the atmosphere, looks like a fine afternoon for a casual snack with the masses. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

I don't see any rats showing themselves at windows of the Rathaus, being afraid of tomatoe bullets thrown by the 'ragtag' seated below, as protestations against high taxes!
Thanks to a hole in the clouds for this vivid depiction and the fine allover details, especially on building.
Miguel82 (21036) 2014-04-02 18:51
Ike, a sunny day in Germany, the architecture is remarkable, good light, perfect sharpness, people are eating on a terrace of restaurant, regards
jmdias (52918) 2014-06-01 14:35
a nice view of this beautiful building, I like its architecture. the people enjoying the sun is another good details here. I guess that a vertical format would be better here.
abmdsudi (40306) 2014-08-29 10:28
A lovely shot on a brilliant day depicting a vibrant place packed by rich colours and detail with the crowd enjoying the view - a great square to socialse - all makes a nice foreground but the unique architectural beauty grabs the eye almost instantly. The compo works well superbly arranged in this manner with lovely touch of green branches as natural framing there.
Wonderful catch, TFS
