More reality of the Town Hall and a lot of details you can see
The photo was taken with a monopod,without flash.
Ulm Town Hall (Rathaus Ulm) during the blue hour.
Ulm´s town hall is situated not far from the Minster and is easily recognised by its opulently painted, early renaissance façade. The oldest part of the present building, the main South East building, was built in 1370 as a “new trading house”. It is first mentioned as a town hall in 1419.
During the course of the 15th century, windows encased in gothic architecture were installed on the South side (with 6 statues of electoral princes) and double-windows on the East side. The ornamental astronomical clock was installed around 1520. The lavish exterior murals were extended to the older part of the building and didactically illustrate virtues, commandments and vices. The paintings visible today originate from the year 1900 when the previous paintings, which had been largely destroyed by the weather, were restored or renewed in the sprit of the surviving remains.
In 1944, the interior of the town hall was extensively damaged by fire. However, the whole of the ground floor and the south wing of the 1st floor remained intact.
On the staircase, you can marvel at a replica of the flying apparatus of Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger, the legendary “Tailor of Ulm”.

Bonjour, cher Danos,
Bravo pour cette réalisation étonnante. La façade de cet immeuble est de toute beauté avec ses peintures.
Le tout ressort magnifiquement sur cette heure bleue.

Interesantan tekst o Ulm´s sa istorijom i opisom ...
Lep pogled na Town Hall ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana arhitektura i detalji na fasadi.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa svetlom koje je istaklo lepotu fasade, lepe boje.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

Beautiful blue hour shot. The decoration of this city hall looks specially attractive at this time of a day. Nice picture from Ulm, Einstein's home town.

you have found a nice light with which to photograph this attractive town hall. Lots of architectural interest here. The deep blue sky is a perfect backdrop to the pale coloured façade.

Superb facade of that building. I like the good management of light during the late blue hour. Well done!
Apurba20 (984) 2014-06-30 1:50
Nice shot of the beautiful building against the dark azure sky. Obviously, there seems to be preparation of a function of some kind, the serially placed chairs with the folded umbrellas do provide a new meaning to the atmosphere.
Great light, and color.
Have a great week.

πολύ ωραία και εντυπωσιακή η πρόσοψη του Δημαρχείου, όπως είναι φωτισμένη τη νύχτα. Μου αρέσει πολύ το καδράρισμα που επέλεξες και ο λίγος μα άνετος χώρος που άφησες γύρω από το κτήριο. Ο χώρος με τα καθίσματα φαίνεται φιλοξενος, παρότι άδειος και μας δίνει επίσης μια αίσθηση των διαστάσεων της πρόσοψης. Ευχάριστος ο βραδυνός φωτισμός, εξαιρετική η απόδοση των χρωμάτων. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή εβδομάδα,
jacquest (18747) 2014-06-30 3:44
This is a well done shot at the blue hour with outstanding colors and good sharpness. The architecture is quite interesting. They seem to be ready for a night meeting with all those chairs lined-up.

amazing view from facade of this building you captured on night.
shreya2000 (1186) 2014-06-30 6:20
Good architecture. The pic is very well taken showing the architecture.
Thanks for sharing.
jmdias (56073) 2014-06-30 7:14
very beautiful view during the blue hour, the adornments of this façade are fabulous and are well shown from this distance. I liked the result. TFS.
ikeharel (58133) 2014-06-30 7:33
A superbly lit townhall painted facade, and great picture of the night scene you managed to collect.
Inspite the scaffolds, which we as tourist can't choose upon the timing, the house looks marvelous pieceof mason's art.
Fine photojob done, from a fairly good distance from the subject.
Sergiom (61054) 2014-06-30 7:47
Quelle belle photo à l'heure bleue. La superbe mairie en ressort de très belle manière. Les couleurs sont merveilleuses, surtout le bleu foncé.

I can feel your 'surge of excitement' while you were getting ready to take this sumptuous frontage after sunset!
The outstanding 'wow effect' is conveyed by the blue backdrop that helps focusing attention on those elaborate decorations around the windows and roof.
I envey so much this superb take!
lousat (77798) 2014-06-30 9:54
Hi Danos,truly beautiful this town hall,the decorations of facade are fantastic,i like a lot the choice of the moment too,the night atmosphere is truly nice.Have a nice evening and thanks,LUCIANO
holmertz (41707) 2014-06-30 12:14
This is a spectacular building, very nicely designed and with fantastic details on the façade. The dark blue sky creates a fine atmosphere. You have used the remaining light excellently.
pierrefonds (57471) 2014-06-30 12:17
The distance between the last row of chairrs and the town hall is giving depth to the composition. Using the tripod and a slow shutter speed is allowing me to see the details and the colors of the architecture of the town hall. It also has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
Fis2 (86247) 2014-06-30 12:58
A very interesting facade.
I like frame and colors.
Light and sky add savor of photo.
Noel_Byrne (24846) 2014-06-30 13:17
This is a very unusual building, and to capture it like this under the blue hour, and with this beautiful light across its facade is really special. I really like that you in included the seats in the scene too, they add a lot, while the lack of people is equally wonderful.
A beautiful shot, thanks for sharing.
jcpix (13686) 2014-06-30 19:39
A lovely town hall, so much more attractive than what I'm accustomed to seeing here in my region. The lighting for this shot is magical, and I'm rather impressed that this was achieved without a tripod. The colors work incredibly well together, and although there aren't any people about, this looks and feels to be a welcoming spot to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Just the paintings alone on the facade are attractive, but the entire composition is superb. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
rychem (23946) 2014-06-30 20:21
Excellent blue hour photo, the town hall is very attractive, you have manager the light, sharpness and details very wll
shevchenko (19279) 2014-06-30 20:52
Good contrast in between the vivid wall with the dark surrounding environment, clear to show the beautiful old architecture, distinct photo in dim environment, well done.
Kielia (23695) 2014-07-01 2:40
excellent night shot with a great atmosphere. The colors are absolutely fascinating. The composition is really successful. Congratulation!

I can feel your 'surge of excitement' while you were getting ready to take this sumptuous frontage after sunset, what our friend Ike writes, real a blue hour picture.
Your picture is splendid and very pleasant to look at.
Sharpness and clarity make the picture very attractive.
Excellent perspective and depth too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
saxo042 (37578) 2014-07-01 7:51
A beautiful façade and a very good illumination. The dark blue sky behind provides a good contrast. Many attractive architectural details to be enjoyed here.

What a sturdy hand and monopod which i love use in situation like this. A beautifully composed blue hour shot taken from great viewpoint and exposed to the best clarity with stunning glow on the prominent which dominates the frame effectively. It's finely featured shot so meticulously done, a lovely low light shot beautifully captured strikingly set off to dark night sky. Awesome capture, Congrats and tfs

This is a splendid photo, superb view to beautiful tow hall building. The arrangement with the green tree and the rows of tables & chares in foreground is excellent. Superb blue hour photo, shoving so many beautiful details. Even with F/2.8 and 1/6sec you achieved an excellent deep DOF. Congratulations to this nice photo.
Very well done.

Δάνο, ο φωτισμός αναδεικνύει τήν υπέροχη αρχιτεκτονική αλλά και στιγμή πού πετυχες για να βγάλεις τήν φωτογραφία σου! ο ουρανός κάνει μια μοναδική αντίθεση με τά γλυκά χρώματα...
η Εθνική μας δεν τα κατάφερε αλλά εγω ημουνα εκει κι εχασα τελικά τήν φωνη μου σε αυτο το παιχνίδι...αδικία μεγάλη..αυτον τον αγωνα επρεπε να τον ειχαμε κερδίσει κιας μην πηγαίναμε παρακάτω...τέλος πάντων θα συνέλθω καποια στιγμή....ακόμα το φυσάω και δεν κρυωνει..

Hi Denos, Beautiful and unique night scenery of this Town Hall. Excellent composition the rows of the chairs add great beauty to the soul of the architecture. All the essential elements in the frame are lit well and the surroundings gives good night mood. Great sharpness and details too. Thank for sharing
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-07-08 1:16
what a shame the town hall has some scaffoldings on this beautiful facade and on the left wall. It is indeed very lovely budiling and the blue hour exposed its charm even more providing contrasting background. Very pretty and well saturated colors, nicely balanced sharpness and well handled light.
Thanks for sharing and all the best
carlo62 (33759) 2014-07-08 8:29
anche con i lavori in corso, questa facciata meritava di essere fotografata.
Eccellente esposizione, è tutto ben visibile e molto apprezzabile, una bella condivisione.
siudzi (33925) 2014-07-08 11:39
An interesting night architectural study. Like the vivid tonality and great contrast between the sky and orange building's facade which made the scene so attractive. Perfectly executed work.
daddo (24404) 2014-07-09 22:53
Hi Danos. against the dark sky the building looks like an apparition- not a scary one but one that fills the viewer with fascination.A grand house, a venerable town hall.Excellent illumination and details. Regards. Klaudio.
mcmtanyel (14117) 2014-07-10 21:16
I like that peach facade standing out against the dark blue sky. It's a great blue hour photo, well exposed and sharp. Congratulations & TFS!
Angshu (55892) 2014-07-10 23:53
The Townhall is wonderful with the pastel pink facade and the artwork on the walls. The best thing about this picture has to be the contrast with the deep blue sky. The chairs in the FG add that 3D effect to this picture...Fine work with your very steady pair of hands
Didi (57256) 2014-07-11 8:21
Awesome picture in the late blue hour
Very good lights management without overexposure
Nice details on the architecture

Nice dark blue hour shot of the town hall with remarkable architecture.
Light management and sharpness are excellent!
delpeoples (53167) 2014-07-12 9:32
A really wonderful Blue Hour shot, those deep blue tones are so magical. I love how well the town hall is illuminated and how it contrasts with the lovely sky. The movement in the clouds is a nice touch, no doubt due to the longer exposure.
cornejo (32132) 2014-07-12 11:23
Hello Danos, very nice shot of this interesting and beautiful edifcio, beautifully captured in this interesting image with good sharpness, good light, color and quality. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Good night and good Sunday.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
ChrisJ (99180) 2014-07-13 9:48
Excellent density levels with good warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow beige facade of the building. I like the repetition of the empty chairs and tables & closed umbrellas. Have a great week.
COSTANTINO (56179) 2014-07-14 22:28
Good morning my dear friend
here we have this wonderful building against
a dark sky but it dominates perfectly into
this photo taken accordign to your useful notes with a monopod withouy flash
great picture of night shot you captured
in an artistic way
have a nice time
mkamionka (30694) 2014-07-16 5:51
lovely city hall and a very nice presentation at the blue hour. I like the strange roof it makes an interesting effect here. It feels as if the left side was not entirely finished. Very unique design I believe.
macjake (57074) 2014-07-16 10:27
wonderful looking photo.
the strong color contrasts is what makes it pop and look so attractive.
the classic yellow and blue combination :)
love the lighting along the bottom portions too.
enjoy your day
adores (37525) 2014-07-19 17:06
A wonderful building and even better in the blue hour, I believe! I see there are workings going on, good to know they preserve it! Even without a tripod, you got a good result!
swapankumarroy (2839) 2014-08-17 10:52
A nice evening view of Ulm´s town hall and you captured very much efficiently this image in a low light condition. Article is well informative, good composition and fine color balance.

Hi Danos dear
Very beautiful shot. I love this shot and composition of traditional architecture. Exposure well performed. Thank you for recording this nice picture
PaulVDV (22673) 2014-09-02 11:53
What a poignant strong colour contrast!
The town hall seems to come from a fairy tale.
I also like the fact that the sky isn't entirely blue or black.
Best regards, Paul
Gigidusud (16289) 2014-09-16 15:15
Splendide cette maison typique à la façade joliment décorée. La couleur orangé ressort parfaitement sur le ciel bleu nuit. Une très bonne gestion de la lumière et un excellent cadrage aussi. J'aime beaucoup!
berek (39457) 2014-10-05 22:01
This building looks like toys. I liked the architecture, especially the color is superb. When taken in blue time, clear and beautiful picture.
Miguel82 (24153) 2014-10-26 2:01
Gorgeous building facade with frescos Danos, you manage well to get a clear picture with a high definition. That terrace was empty during the blue hour because the building was going to be renovated
