Good Morning Stephen,
A charming place.
The building are so very different in style and appearance; it looks as if they have been added onto one another rather than having been conceived as a unit build.
I love the brave, eye-catching colours which reveal something of the character of the people.
You have chosen a good perspective and captured interesting details of the setting.
Have a good Sunday,

Nice view of these colourful buildings. The architecture of these houses and the cobbled path lends a nice old world charm to the photo and the place. Well managed light and colour in tricky situations. Thanks for sharing a fine photo.

I like very much the angle and framing you chose for this intimate urban view. The perspective is great, the picturesque buildings are neatly tucked in the background and there's ample space for the textured cobblestone that's an essential characteristic of this picturesque place. The bright and vivid colours stand out wonderfully amid the moody and subdued ones. The yellow house is giving us a "wink and a smile":) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

love little places like this. So colourful and uniquely characterful too! Don't see that many shots from Hungary on TE, so this is a nice little series of shots from over 10 years ago which are fascinating and interesting. Looks wonderful!
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

Bonjour, cher Stephen,
Une image extraite d'un disque dur pour notre plus grand plaisir.
J'aime le sujet bien traité et les couleurs vives d'ensemble.
Cette voie pavée ajoute une belle note d'un ensemble urbain.

Quand on veut que notre boutique tranche avec les voisines, on choisit une couleur très vive avec de beaux contrastes pour faire ressortir les couleurs. Tu as réussi la même chose avec ta photo.

Like this presentation a lot. These two colorful buildings are a good sample of this place. Their decorations and intensive colorful facades mad the view so lovely. Well executed shot.
Have a nice afternoon!

un angolo molto caratteristico e originale, soprattutto grazie ai colori di queste facciate.
Interessante il particolare dei tetti e dell'antico paracarro.

Those are two very jolly looking buildings, their colors no doubt helping that feeling. I like this view of them very much, and they kind of remind me of two drunken friends singing in a bar! Lovely inclusion of the cobbled pavement too, creating depth and great texture.

Un bon grand format pour nous présenter ces façades colorées, bon rendu d'image, bien cadré avec ces pavés en premier plan.

such very attractive architecture,the designs and colours of the building are delightful whilst the cobbled street and tiled roofs are equally impressive.

L'espace devant les immeubles donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et els couleurs de l'architecture des immeubles. La bonne luminosité valorise les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

A nice contrast between the dull grey flagstones in the fg and the colourful facade of the bg building. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The hot colours of red pink and yellow contrast well against the blue grey sky. Tfs!
