I have visited Passau when I was a little kid, thanks for this photo. This town is really beautiful, you show us one of the attractive view. Your composition with river is great. Nice colors and sharpness. Well done!

It seems a lovely town, with good examples of historic architecture, from which you can see here a beautiful set. Excellent POV from a distance, with some of the city scenery beeing reflected on the Danube river. It's a marvellous postcard and a very attracted image.

Hio Attila, beautiful framed picture with outstanding colours and reflection. I like vertical elements dominating the picture.

Bellissimo posto Attila, incuriosito dalla tua foto mi sono andato a documentare meglio e trovo che come cittá deve essere molto bella e affascinante, grazie dello stimolo.
La foto č bella e tecnicamente ottima, belle luci, colori e composizione, il panorama che passa dalla vegetazione alle case č completo e da bene l'idea di cosa si puó trovare andando a visitare la cittá, complimenti.

hugolef (4909) 2006-08-02 11:09
nice mood for this "classical view" : river, town and reflection ... i like the tree on the left corner, and that nice pink light ... well seen and done
balatrek (7455) 2006-08-02 11:32
Fantástico paisaje con una composición muy agradable, me gustan los contrastes y bellos colores, el reflejo en el agua es muy interesante, buen trabajo!
gp_pl (1394) 2006-08-02 11:36
good shot. Nice clasissic composition, good colours. In my opinion you could use a polar filter for better effect of sky. In spite of all well done.

Gyönyörű fényeket vártál meg a képhez, teljesen áthangolják az épületeket és a távlatot: gyönyörű! A kompozíció szépen vezeti a szemet a folyókanyarban álló hídig és az épületekhez! Nagyon jól elkapott pillanat, élnek a színek, szép tiszta és karcos a kép, kitűnő! Továbbra is szép képeket!

I like the colours of this picture - I think - in the deep evening sun. The river leads the eyes very well into the scenery. It's a rather unusual point of view of this "most Italian" Germany city. A really beautiful picture!
Greetings from very rainy Germany!

Hello Attila, it is excellent this sight the juxtaposition of these churches is pretty, the colors are incomparable and the reflections on water are splendid, sincerely

Wonderful place, beautiful light, super colors. I like the composition. Good work.
papagolf21 (90394) 2006-08-02 16:42
Bonjour mon ami Attila,
Les édifices religieux se détachent élégamment ŕ proximité du Danube qui reflčte une partie du clocher.
Trčs belle réussite de composition.
lestans (17152) 2006-08-02 18:18
Me lo dovevi dire di andare a vedere il maggior organo del mondo a Los Angeles, cosě lo sarei forse andata a vedere... e ora chissŕ quando ci torno!
Bella inquadratura di un bel posto da scoprire, io almeno non lo conosco.
Ti sei goduto la pioggia? Io si! Finalmente!!

Jó napot Attila,
superb pov, great view, good colours and composition. I like the reflections and sharpness also. Beautiful Passau.
AiresSantos (56155) 2006-08-03 2:35
Beautiful city with fantastic Architecture. Excellent colours, sharp and reflections in the water. I like the POV and sky.
Thanks and greetings my friend
markstaples (15670) 2006-08-03 3:11
Nice light falling onto this scene. I think that your image is well composed with the tree on the left and the river bank leading our eye which is immmediately drawn to the town. I've never been to Passau, but it sure looks like a nice place from your shot.
PixelTerror (0) 2006-08-03 4:11
Excellent PoV to get the city landmarks and the river curve perspective, timing was appropriate as well to get a nice light that produces soft colors appropriate to the buildings style.
Have a nice day,
josepmarin (57911) 2006-08-03 5:42
Beautiful composition, with great colorful. The frame with the river put a little off center, the vegetation to the left, and the city to the right, with its beautiful and old architecture, he is splendid.
You have played very well with exposure, and you have obtained a great result with good sharpness, good lighting and beautiful colors.
MikiM (1924) 2006-08-03 6:48
Van Neked egy külön tetőcserépszínező programod? Az a gyanúm hogy igen - már nem a első ilyen színezésű, gyönyörű kép tőled.
Mellesleg ez a kép az első érv amellett hogy Németországba is érdemes fényképezőgépet vinni. :)
yannick (1471) 2006-08-03 6:50
It is a very pleasant picture. I like the colours of the buildings in the curve of the river. I have had the opportunity to fly over Passau, and what struck me is the difference of colour of the rivers Danube and Inn, when they merge together, and you could see the different colours remaining unmixed for a while.
Thanks for sharing
gilou530 (34) 2006-08-03 12:40
je ne connaissais pas le danube et ici cette trés belle image le met bien en valeur avec cette courbe et ce village aux clochers typiques, beau paysage....
Tue (28986) 2006-08-03 13:00
A lovely picture of this town! The architecture looks very interesting and I like the colours and the light in this photo a lot! The composition with all the green at this side of the river is very nice too. Good work!
cjmm (4479) 2006-08-03 14:41
I like a lot the light which makes the colors appear very much like a painting.
The DOF, composition and your POV also give the image a great sense of depth.
maximage (15535) 2006-08-03 17:36
Trčs belle vue de la ville avec une architecture superbe.
Les couleurs et la lumičre sont excellentes!

Gyonyoru ez a passau-i felvetel, kulonosen tetszik, hogy a tema fo mondaivaloja: a templomok sokszinusegukkel kiemelednek. Szep, tiszta felvetel.
Jol vagyok, egyenlore aklimatizalodom, de a hoseg szinte elviselhetetlen. Remelem, mihamarabb sikerul majd elhelyezkednem.
Nagyon kellemes estet kivanok!!
TeresaT (10806) 2006-08-03 19:18
Magnific view of this beautiful town.
I love the warm tones of the houses they really contrast with the smoothness of the sky.
Angshu (56568) 2006-08-04 3:38
The composition is excellent with the bend of the river bounding the town on the right. The spires of the churches are beautiful & so are the facades of the buildings. I think I can see the difference in colours of the waters of the two rivers which merge towards the left of the frame. Passau looks like a beautiful place & your shot brings out the beauty so very well in nice soft light.
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2006-08-04 12:47
Excellent colours of the town. Great composition of the buildings over the river.
pablominto (53746) 2006-08-06 2:29
What first attracted my attention was the curve in the river..!
Very good point of view on the town, with the most pleasant architecture...
Well composed image, good foreground interest, pleasant warm lighting!

Hi, Attila! Thanks for visiting my pics! Your are really nice, as this one, for instance, nicely composed, in great perspective and colours. The landscape is beautiful! Well done! Greetings from Rio! Miguel.
abulafia (4900) 2006-08-07 15:21
I love the light and the bright coloured house roofs.
Vato_Law (12720) 2006-08-07 17:11
Beautiful view of Passau with river passing. I like the very interesting details we can appreciate on it, with different kinds of architecture, with boats stopped at riverside, the reflections of the buildings on water... I like also the vegetation on foreground framing one side of your image.
paura (47182) 2006-08-08 14:33
Very nice pic. We have also here in Brazil a city like these: It is called Tres Rios (Three rivers), in Rio de Janeiro State.
osse (2808) 2006-08-12 21:26

Nice colour, composition and framing.The reflection on the water is very beautiful and the shot is telling a story.

Dear friend Attila,

danos (90257) 2007-07-11 5:27
very nice and graphical place of the Passau town.The clearness of the atmosphere create this view of the town with the splendid colours and light.I like the perspective and the POV.the reflections on the water are simply impressive.iWell done my friend.
Jakab (3867) 2007-11-24 9:38
Nagyon szép látvány! (Emlékeim szerint erről a városról nehéz is rosz felvételt készíteni.) Szép ez a meleg fényű megvilágítás, és nagy erénye a képnek, hogy ekkora hangsúlyt kap a víz - végtére is a folyók városáról van szó!
A jegyzethez még annyit, hogy itt nyugszanak első királynénk, Gizella hamvai - ámbár ez rajtunk kívül aligha érdekel bárkit.
asajernigan (21427) 2008-01-13 9:02
This is a great shot of Passau. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. The river leads the eye through the photo nicely giving the shot a nice sense of direction.
