Second photo over the same place on the Hauptmarkt in Trier, minutes later. The rain stopped for a few precious minutes – so I took one more picture over the beautiful square, freshly washed.

Beautiful view of the German square. Like the multi coloured buildings in the BG which brighten up the scene regardless of the overcast sky. The church tower acts as a nice focal point. NIcely done, thanks for sharing.

The market was in place when we visited here many years ago and I can say the weather was not much better than you experienced. I like the point of view and the animated atmosphere. The background architecture is quite delightful and the church tower makes an excellent focal point. Colours and detail are well rendered despite the poor lighting conditions.

Notwithstanding it bad weather get we very nice picture about the market day.
Also the buildings in background are pleasant to look at.
But a very pleasant picture to look at
Of course a wonderful architecture picture.
Excellent presentation, colour and sharpness are perfect.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

nonostante la giornata cupa, i colori delle facciate sono molto belli e i palazzi molto eleganti.
Una bella piazza, ben fotografata.

The wideness of the square is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the buildings. The presence of the people is adding life to the scene. The cloudy sky is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.

You're capturing well this town place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the marchen buildings like the fairy-tale and the wide square with the small shops. It looks like a typical european town in medieval times when considering both of the structure and the arrangement. And, it's also impressive in church as a town's symbol.
Silvio1953 (133654) 2014-02-15 9:35
Ciao Ike, lovely composition with animated market, fantastic buildings as BG, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-02-15 10:04
yes it look as it is right after the rain but the wet cobbles of the square add some beauty to this picture. Very good colors, especially considering not the greatest weather for taking pictures :-)
Good POV which enabled to include plenty of interesting details in the composition.
Very well given sharpness.
Enjoy your evening
adramad (41959) 2014-02-15 10:06
A superb picture of this lovely place, delicious facades and magnificent tower above them all form a large set, stalls give a good vital touch with people who seem to walk faster, because the weather does not accompanied.
Despite this good sharpness and color.
Good sharpness allows us to recreate the details.
Enjoy the weekend.

The colors have turned out deep and rich on this overcast day. A very quaint square.
mirosu (15794) 2014-02-15 21:39
Brilliant view of nice small town market. The composition with the market stands in foreground and the beautiful buildings behind is perfect. The view up us very good. The church tower is an excellent focal point in this very nice photo. I hope that you have enjoyed shopping there.
Very well done.
ourania (38874) 2014-02-16 6:51
in spite of the adverse weather and lighting conditions, you took a very clear, rewarding and interesting picture of this great square and its flower market. The massive and picturesque architectural scape has so much character and its details and colours have been defined excellently. There's great depth and the walking people make the scenery even more interesting and meaningful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-02-17 2:18
Hello Ike - Despite the weather the market square has an atmosphere of activity. Perhaps the stalls are not as busy as the vendors would like as the people appear to be hurrying past in search of shelter! An attractive scene with the colourful buildings brightening up a gloomy day. Warm regards Rosemary
UlfE (14641) 2014-02-17 10:37
I really enjoy the mood you captured here. Even though it was a rainy day if is full of life and strong colours. Very good timing with the people and the colourful and beautiful Buildings and the church are a perfect backdrop to all the activities going on in the square. TFS and have a fine week!
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-02-17 10:47
Great photo of this super square in Trier, love the mood, it looks a busy market.
Super Pov, and well managed. Tfs,
A lull in the storms more to come joy!
ChrisJ (107053) 2014-02-17 14:03
Good shadow detail and a lively street scene despite the rain. Excellent graphism of the dark fg buildings against the lighter bg sky. The people animate the scene and provide scale. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!
jcpix (13846) 2014-02-17 19:14
Too bad the sun didn't poke through for a quick moment as well to bring a shine to the wet pavement, that would have really looked neat. As it were, there's still a decent reflection seen for that effect. Using the tower as a centerpiece in this composition works well, having that vertical element to fill the middle of the frame where there might otherwise be too much negative space. Like your previous shot, despite the flat sky, there's plenty of color and beautiful architecture to enjoy on this rainy day...and it doesn't appear to dampen the atmosphere. Enjoy the day ahead.
mkamionka (33601) 2014-02-18 8:43
the weather was really bad indeed but the photo looks quite colorful and the wet pavement adds even more charm and atmosphere. Nice architecture with the market in the foreground. Very inviting to visit this interesting town,
Romano46 (18472) 2014-02-18 9:52
la composizione è semplice e nello stesso tempo assai efficace.
Belli i colori che rendono molto bene l'atmosfera di una giornata alquanto cupa.
Ciao e buona serata
shevchenko (19032) 2014-02-18 23:23
Good pov and good frame to show a group of colourful buildings, lovely old architectures, clear to show stall at open air area too, distinct photo, thanks for sharing a beautiful old city view.
Miguel82 (27024) 2014-02-19 9:59
Dear Ike, some internet connection issues now I'm back, you captured Trier palace on a rainy day, some stand selling flowers and pleasant street activity, colorful buildings, thanks, good evening
Cricri (113549) 2014-02-21 3:10
Une version plus large qui permet d'apprécier l'architecture, aussi par le fait de moins de monde qui donne un joli aperçu sur le marché, de belles couleurs sous le ciel gris
J'en ai quelques unes aussi de mes premiers jours en Autriche sous la neige
Oceania (5202) 2014-02-24 7:03
Sometime I really like taking picture in a rainy day. Your picture delivers a poetic mood people would enjoy. This picture shows great architecture in Germany. Thanks for sharing.
PS: I browsed your previous posting. Yes, I found other Germany pictures with beautiful vineyards.
Kielia (24077) 2014-02-24 7:25
you are presenting a pleasant impression of the people enjoying a dull and rainy day. Your POV on this interesting market place works very well. The composition is also successful, my compliments!
jmdias (59958) 2014-05-13 17:21
another nice image from a town I never had seen before. nice view of these façades and these details of the daily life here. even the weather didn't spoiled the compo. tfs.
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-10-01 10:43
A beautiful photo of this wonderful square with a church at the centre of the frame, peoples were moving here and there, excellent color contrast and good composition, I like its clarity and sharpness.
my warm regards,
berek (45339) 2014-11-25 19:11
what a view on this wonderful place with this tiling and gloss of rain and it made shades on timbered houses super capture and view.
Royaldevon (34655) 2015-07-23 9:16
I remember vividly the beauty of Trier, though, happily, it was a beautiful day when we were there. I remember a performing pig, an artist and many human statues, all working around this market area!
Though the weather was inclement, you have still managed to show us the characteristic, tall, colourful houses, quite clearly and used them well as a backstop, to keep attention here, in the square. The wet cobbles add a pleasing effect, giving blurred reflections across the floor.
It's a nicely composed photograph, with good colours, despite the relatively poor light.
My warm regards,
Where are you going for your holidays this year?

Very attractive picture successfully captured despite the grey skies which still retain enough detail to see clouds.
