Óbuda atmosphere, Budapest, III. kerület (district)
The IIIrd district of Budapest is known as Óbuda (old Buda). When Budapest merged in 1873, Óbuda was the smallest, village-looking joining town (the advertising pillar stands at the same place since the 19. century, authentic detail of the main square too).
This district has a special atmosphere with its narrow streets, the small houses and the wonderful restaurants. 2000 years ago, a developed Roman settle called Aquicum was located here. The old Hungarian settle Óbuda was built on its ruins.
The island (Óbuda Island) next to this part of the city today hosts the Sziget Festival, a huge music and cultural festival.
Settlements dating from the stone age have been found in Óbuda. The Romans built Aquincum, the capital of Pannonia province here. Hungarians arrived after 900 and it served as an important settlement of major tribal leaders, later kings. Béla IV of Hungary built a new capital after the 1241-1242 Mongol invasion in Buda, somewhat south of Óbuda. On January 1, 1873 it was united with Buda and Pest to form Budapest.

I prefer this simple environment, less oppressive whether the big city so beautiful is. The composition is very well thought, the light and the colors are very pleasant. The neatness is excellent. Bravo.

This is another location full of history, superb scene timely captured when the sun is at an angle. The rich colors, the contrast, framing, shadow/depth and above all your great shooting angle, with all the vital components are well in placed nicely. Good that your include the splashy vivid red as good focal of interest to the eyes and worth mentioning is the contrast of white wash building is so superb against the surrounding. Really gorgeous, you have done justice to this great place. Well done. Congrats

A peaceful spot in the city, well away from the busy traffic!
Wonderful summer day with great light, and the blue sky makes a fine background in the well framed composition...
Good balance and fine lines, the red flowers offer pleasant contrast!

Hi dear George,
Nice capture from this peacefull square of Budapest. In addition to your framing the natural framing with the trees at the upper part of the scene makes this capture specific.
An entry, enriched with many good and usefull notes.

This is a nicely composed shot with the column placed off center and framed by the trees. The overhanging tree add depth for the scene. The lighting and colors are great as is the photo's sharpness.
