Another new country today, view of Eger from the Castle, the yellow building is the cathedral, the 2nd larget in Hungary. Eger is famous for its Egri Bikaver bulls blood wine. The town is quite touristy, but so far there are only 11 other photos from Eger on this site. I darkened and decreased saturation in the sky. I wish I was able to catch a lightning (on camera not on my head) it was quite a heavy spring thunderstorm.

Well Tan thanks for sharing this wonderful place on TE. I love the design and details in town square. A very rare capture indeed. The dark clouds above really adds drama to this scene. Very well done. I had to run it through photoshop CS2 and added smart sharpening to the buildings in the workshop. Have a good weekend!

Very sharp picture and great composition. Love the dark, grey sky

Amazing photo with so many different and beautiful colors. The buildings are so pretty and you have captured them all so crisp and sharp. The colors stand out so beautifully against that dark sky. Well done, great work!

carper (96) 2006-01-15 3:49
I like the shot Tan,
the atmosphere is very nice even as the good point of view and the very good depth in the shot, the contrast against the dark clouds is marvelous, fantastic job.

Good colours. Very nice picture.

A great PoV and a good lightning to give it a dramatic touch, it's well done, I tried a small WS.
Have a nice day,
MarekP (4750) 2006-01-15 5:45
An excellent addition to TE's Eger collection. You seems to find a perfect PoV to show this beautiful town in its entirety. Well saturated colours are nice too. Well done!
Henryk_Bilor (20797) 2006-01-15 5:54
Is there a country you haven`t visit until today ;)?
Beautiful architecture in a dangerous mood.
Have a nice day (when you`ll awake;)).
sebautourdumond (3108) 2006-01-15 6:01
Great colors and great composition. Beautiful picture.
lukie (0) 2006-01-15 7:05
beautiful architecture ! Picture of 1997, then people already speak about an old one... For a scanned is, it is again a little piece of art.
ChrisJ (86902) 2006-01-15 8:03
I like the threatening, ominous clouds, in the background. A superb pov overlooking the square, with good graphism of the towers, & marvellous color. Tfs.
Paolo (41216) 2006-01-15 12:59
Hi Tan, amazing view of that beautiful old city.
excellent POV, light and colours.
is the first time that i saw something about Eger...a completely unknown city for me!ùthanks, ciao
cherubin (1971) 2006-01-15 13:10
after all these comments, i have nothing else to add... just a perfect shot! colours and contrast are perfect!
sleon (9402) 2006-01-15 13:49
Great compo with so much to see of this fancy architecture. The sky is really dramatic and the saturated colours work well against the dark sky. Almost looks like a toy town from your high POV!
Tezic (17807) 2006-01-15 14:15
Tan merhaba, nefis renkler, harika kontrast ve süper bir görüntü... tebrikler..
:) kalmamış, yarın hemen yollayacağım..
gilou530 (34) 2006-01-15 14:45
une photo super dramatique avec ce ciel menacant, les couleurs sont un peu trop saturées a mon avis, mes l'ensemble est magnifique
toni_al (15873) 2006-01-15 15:05
Pour commencer j'aime le format carré, et deuxièmement cette superbe lumière, la saturation et ton superbe cadrage
Gerrit (43743) 2006-01-15 16:11
Geat colors. Always a nice moment to shoot when the sky is dark and the object is in the full sun.
Beautiful place too.
Thanks and regards, Gerrit
cherryripe (21015) 2006-01-15 16:56
Lovely point of view of the square. The buildings are so colourful. Amazing the 2-toned grey sky and of course that magical light you see to attract when you take photos - even if you can't attract lightning ;-)
hyasar (7741) 2006-01-15 17:44
harika renkler... süper olmus.
peter1892 (1681) 2006-01-15 18:21
Great contrast here Tan - such a dark, dramatic sky complimented by the colourful buildings.
singuanti (15250) 2006-01-15 22:55
Hi Tan. I certainly like your boosting of the saturation. There's something odd about the shot I can't really place. I can only describe it as blotchy? Maybe I'm crazy (very likely, lol!). Well done Tan. Happy 10,000 points!
Cormac (26545) 2006-01-15 22:59
Great shot of this city - the contrast between the red roofs of the buildings and the dark, almost black, sky is great. The dark sky gives this a very dramatic look. You also managed to get a lot of detail into this, especially in the town square. Great work!
L2K (240) 2006-01-16 4:30
Tan, excellent composition, the dark cloud adds some kind of seriousness, elegance to this exuberant baroque architecture. Very nice play of roofs!
donluicu (24692) 2006-01-16 10:17
excellent squared format, (biiiig image, that's great!) with lots of details..and threatening storm..
jbweasle (9373) 2006-01-17 3:25
Hello Tan, I've been to Hungary a couple of time but never to Eger. It looks like I've been missing something special. I love the brightly coloured buildings (maybe just a bit over saturated) and the heavy cloud adds a dramatic touch.
anesugur (18757) 2006-01-17 9:08
Çok güzel bir fotoğraf. Burayı tanıtmak için kartpostal olarak kullanılabilir.Herhalde orada satılanlar daha güzel değildir.
ahmetgedikli (25064) 2006-01-17 16:55
Very nice shot. Amazing sky, beautiful colors and contrast. Thanks for sharing.
john_c (24662) 2006-01-18 10:27
A grand, bold sweeping view of the town from a superb POV. I love the prevailing colours of beige and orange blending together, with the smidge of greenery here and there. Great clarity allows one to see and appreciate all the fine architecture. The heavily layered and threatening sky really enhances and creates a dramatic ambience. Well captured, Tan.
danyy (0) 2006-01-20 17:26
C'est plus une peinture qu'une photo, un petit manque de naturel de la scène qui est compensé par des couleurs et des contrastes poussés à l'extrème.
Une interpretation personnelle de cette scène que tu transmets avec brio.
Bien à toi.
martou (1656) 2006-01-23 18:59
stunning photo, with the colors composition, POV and weather condition, like painting, really good work,
nerve (10231) 2006-01-24 3:50
Fırtınalı hava tam dramatik yapmış hakikaten.. bence en güzel ışıklardan biri bu..Flaş etkisi yapıyor bir şekilde,,
Renkler harika burada Kaptan..Pov'un herzamanki gibi olağanüstü zaten.
arnie (675) 2006-01-28 12:31
Yet another brilliant shot,
lovely colours, the 2 spires seem to be in sympathy with the clouds.
Roly (2024) 2006-02-01 1:25
Do these storm clouds always follow you around? You did a very good job with the composition, which makes the square and the buildings around it look really appealing. It would make a great Eger postcard.
RGatward (20050) 2006-02-06 4:15
Yes, amazing isn't it that there's so few from here. Lovely view of my very favourite holiday destination, we've been 8 times to the Senator Haz hotel, the roof of which can be seen in the lower left of your shot. Great shot of the place form the castle, much better than I've managed. Tomorrow I'll post a shot taken from the gallery above the camera obscura, in the college building in the upper far left of your shot.
pwelliott (216) 2006-02-19 12:37
This is a very beautiful picture though the sky is a little grainy. I too wish you had caught a lightning bolt. I have one critique. The image is slightly tilted to the left. I you use the two towers on the left for your reference point it will help correct the problem. Right now the buildings look like they are leaning.
pastadog (12884) 2006-02-25 6:08
Hi Tan, good you were there to capture this spectacular storm over the colorful city landscape, giving a powerful dimension to the shot, I like how you placed the top of the towers, with their crosses, in the darkest area of the storm, cheers, Daniel
ps - waiting for your Yemen shots...
asival (5283) 2006-03-14 1:38
Very impressive choose of POV, nice framing and you gotta love the color of the sky
Angshu (51174) 2006-03-24 4:03
Superb colours..that's my first reaction. Beautiful POV & I like even the details of square which has come up so well. The contrast of the buildings with the threatening sky is amazing
jrleborgne (1370) 2006-05-28 13:58
Les tons rouge et ocre jaune dominants s'
accordent bien avec le style architectural plutôt pompeux de l'endroit. Ce cadrage plongeant, vu des toits, rend cette photographie plus humaine.
Yffic (6106) 2006-06-02 4:39
A very nice picture with beautiful constrast ans stunning colors: I realy like the red of the houses and the texture of the sky.
MIMACSKA (291) 2006-06-16 1:16
I am from hungary and I know Eger very much, my fother was born there. You found an excellent moment to make this shot. The black sky with the last moment of sunshines makes fine colors.
MLINES (12516) 2006-09-02 1:15
Hi Tan, An amazing vista of this old world city. Good colours and clarity. Interesting to see. The stormy black clouds add another dimension. TFS. Murray
HaBeMa (1326) 2006-11-12 5:44
Selam Tan;vay canina harika bir sehir burasi,mimari nefis dagilim gostermis,tebrikler sayenizde gorebildik.
marietom (34603) 2006-12-26 18:49
Allez, 100 points !
Superbes couleurs, belle compo, j'aime aussi le format carré.
lu_muratori (618) 2007-05-05 6:10
Wow Tan, this shot well deserved the first page of TE.
Amazing light and great composition.
suru (1065) 2007-12-02 6:57
Amazing photo. Very beautiful buildings and architecture. Looks like a very nice city.
QBI (309) 2008-01-28 4:26
The quality and the resolution is poor, but I think the photograper's eye takes one to be a good photographer rather than his/her camera. The POV is very good, but the most awe-inspiring thing is the set of lights.
aofl (1088) 2008-01-28 5:01
Nice colours and sharpness. Nice image with good light
Ricx (13441) 2010-01-11 8:07
This could be a great shot for a puzzle.. Excellent details.. Rich
