With this closer view of the bears who skillfully build Cuckoo clocks… I conclude the long series of my photos from our South Germany (97 picture posted and 34 WS's) and Alsace (26 pictures and 8 WS's) trip of 6/2013.
16:9 aspect ratio. Triberg Hauptstrasse location: 48.129, 8.2308 .
Same place, already shown those pictures: The store in full view, and the "Another" view of the bears "family".

Great close up of these funny bears working on clocks, I like your bigger picture as well, showing us the store.
Splendid trip for you, if your photos are anything to go by.
Wonderful, Cheers, Iain.

Excellent photo of these skillful bears. I not that from you low POV it must hav been a bit difficult get all angles and lines straight but you have made perfect choice with the beam at the bottom perfectly horizontal. TFS and have a fine week!

ricordo quando ci hai presentato questo bellissimo orologio e questo particolare è bello e simpatico.
Una scena ricca di dettagli, ben ripresa e ben presentata.

J'aime le cadrage serré sur les deux personnages, le côté humour de la scène si bien réaliser et bien présenter, belles images vue sur les liens

A picture that would make anybody smile, I like how you have filled the frame with this interesting and amusing scene. Beautiful sharp detail and excellent rich colors.
Thanks for sharing.

The tight frame is putting the clock in evidence. The point of view is showing the détails and the colors of this section of the clock. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

Ciao dear Ike
Ah yes I remember your previous photos and notes on this. What a sweet and charming photo. I like the close up and the colours. The intricate workings of the cuckoo clock have been portrayed very faithfully.
Warmest wishes and have a happy week

I finally meet the maker of our cuckoo clock! This is a very cute photo, TFS.
kato (11630) 2014-05-13 4:45
You're capturing well Cuckoo clocks by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the clocks with the combination of the elaborate gear and the funny bears. It's an excellent works of lovery clocks.

A gorgeous image, plus very sympathetic with this pair of bears, with gears that emphasize the watch trdicion of the population, the image is captured perfectly and is very nice.
Very pretty color, which gives a lot of life to the image.
A magnificent brightness management, sharpness also
is perfect for enjoying the details.
Very well seen and well taken.
All the best.
jcpix (13708) 2014-05-13 16:51
So it's the bears who actually produce the clocks...but who makes the bears? :) Great idea to go in close for this one, bringing out the detail and inner workings of the machinery. A fun and even festive result from this more intimate framing. It's certainly been a very pleasant series to follow along, I sure hope that if you have more, we will see them too at some point. As for now, we'll let the bears sign off and smile just the same. Enjoy the new day ahead. All the best.
mirosu (14988) 2014-05-13 20:23
Excellent detail photo in perfect light, very good clarity, nice colors. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Very well done.
p.s. The foehn which you have described is not the same. It is different from European foehn. This one is caused by the high Alps. It can be caused by cool northern wind, in this case we have foehn temperature effect south of Alps or the southern wind, in this case we have foehn temperature effect north of Alps. The wind can be pretty cold, but it considerably heat up after hitting the Alp mountains, during climbing up it drops most of its moisture. This occurs several times in the year during all seasons. The foehn causes many headaches and also heart and blood circulation problems.

Nice for see how you took these picture with this nice subject
Excellent composition, colours and presentation be superb.
Sharpness and clarity are excellent made.
Very well done, TFS.
clic (15310) 2014-05-14 5:34
I don't understand why the guy is wearing eyeglasses to work on such huge gears!
He composes with the yodeling lady a nice attraction on each side of the magical mechanism.
ourania (32867) 2014-05-14 8:52
I like very much how you isolated this part from a setting that's quite large and full of details. This scene is autonomous and charming, its perspective is fine and the details it features are so sharp and interesting. You handled the soft lighting very aptly, the chromatic palette is harmonious and pleasing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
danos (87937) 2014-05-14 12:50
very nice the close up view as we see a lot of details of the huge
Cuckoo clock,with the bears to 'manage' the hours and the minutes.
Excellent the light and the colour management of the scene as must be the attraction of the town.
pajaran (53022) 2014-05-14 23:17
Lep pogled na mehanizam sata i male skulpture medveda ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan mehanizam i skulpture.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.
A nice view of a clock and small sculptures of bears ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated mechanism and sculptures.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best.

Fine Triberg scene with the happy bears and the intricate clock gears on display. A whimsical reminder of the mechanic past before computer digitalization.
Thanks for sharing,

What a pity, no more post"under your umbrella", a good bye with a creative capture of the busy bears making the charming Cuckoo clocks
Well taken, congrats
eldancer1 (29055) 2014-05-24 7:21
I'd say that person who first invented the clock is a genius! To get those tiny mechanism to function perfectly is beyond my imagination. Nice capture of those wooden sculpture with good details. Well done, tfs.
adores (38240) 2014-06-17 16:48
I really like this and here we can see the details so close. I used to have one of those clocks my parents brought from there many years ago. Very nice capture!

I was not able to review everyone from your over 1000 photos, but among to those I saw a few are really good.
This caught my eye!

I like the tight framing on the two characters, the humor side of the stage so well and very well presented. very interesting machine.
