My day in Luxembourg started when I met Julia at the railway station. With her guidance I quickly got the idea how the city was build on a place surrounded by deep gorges and thus well protected from possible attackers. After a rainy and cloudy morning the weather started to clear and the day turned out to be nice and sunny.
Natural sandstone cliff protecting the city centre on the right. Grund, Alzette river and the church of St. John on the left.
Shooting towards the sun is always tricky. On this one the remaining clouds saved from the strongest glare. The scene in the shadow required quite a lot of brightening. I hope it still looks plausible.

Excellent shot of Luxembourg! You have managed to really capture the essence of how the city is built and structured. Excellent light management in difficult light conditions! The workshop provided by garageolympo works really well to bring it even more out!
It was a pleasure to meet You!
Thanks for visiting and for taking the time to hang around the vernissage!
All the best,

Joli cliché. Le regard suit bien la route à droite. Bon aperçu sur la ville.
Merci pour le partage et bonne soirée.

I see you got into the meeting fun, hope one day we'll have to opportunity to shoot some nice loks together ;-)
The PoV is good to combine the depth setting upwards path with the papagolfade, I did not remember Luxembourg to be so hilly but I did not stayed there much, at least not enough to paint it on my map with valuable pixels. I like the WS that brings extra brightness to the ground but keeps the cloud under control, a finishing touch could be to clone the few cranes here and there.
Have a nice day,

I like a lot the beautiful composition of the image, some problem of bright and sharp but the place is beautiful and the post too, compliments.

A nice shot of the Grund with the Alzette. An excellent "contre jour". Next time you come to Luxemburg give me a sign. :~)).
