A new country today, but a small one. Taken at Place de la Constitution just before sunset. I've passed through this country several times over the years, but the only time I saw any sunshine was the 5 minute period around which this photo was taken, it was a gloomy overcast day with high altitude fog. I darkened the sky further to add impact and erased the construction cranes that filled the sky at the right part.
In WS I will add my first photo taken with the new Canon 20D.

What a colorfull picture!!! Typicall in autumn and really great.
Nice POV too.
MarekP (4750) 2006-01-26 9:31
Excellent colours here. Contrast between strongly illuminated city and the dark sky is fantastic. Very well done!
BTW, I've captured a similar magic moment here, but your photo is much cleaner and sharper.

Wonderful autumn shot! Colors and sunset light is superb.
I was in Luxembourg in the beginning of December, but the sky was cloudy and I have not good shots.

Tan, des couleurs d'automne qui réchauffent ! La photo est très belle parce que très bien composée et qu'elle bénéficie d'une lumière de coucher de soleil qui ravive les tons jaunes et orangés des arbres et des bâtiments.
AmiBe (6042) 2006-01-26 10:37
the colors of this picture are amazing, I like the warm/cold contrast.
And one more, one new country !
Congratulation for your new 20D.

Another fine piece of work with lovely lighting and vibrant colours. Nicely composed.

Luxembourg is maybe a very small country, but a beautiful one. The city (same name) Luxembourg is even not one of the most beautiful places in this country. Amazing evening colors here.
Cormac (26545) 2006-01-26 11:23
Great light you caught in this shot! The golden glow of the sunset light gives a great contrast with the cool blue/grey sky. I like the composition too, with the photo building from the right to the left on a diagonal. Great work!
rhizomes (15343) 2006-01-26 12:46
Wonderfull colors and light !! Impressive shot !!

You show us so great colors, so a wonderful light! You captured all the mystery of the sunset. Thank you!! Livia

marietom (34607) 2006-01-26 13:48
superbe lumière !
jjbach (9324) 2006-01-26 14:44
The reddish colours and the warm lighting are the main elements of this wonderful composition. I also like the way you framed the picture on the left. Great perspective too.
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2006-01-26 16:05
Beautiful capture, great lighted buildings and trees.
naxius (16685) 2006-01-26 16:36
Wow!!! impressive colors!!
Really nice compo with an excellent POV!!
Tue (27696) 2006-01-26 16:44
What a beautiful and gorgeous warm light you captured here on the city. Good composition with that church on the left hand side. The blue sky is also wonderful, really good work!
toni_al (15875) 2006-01-26 16:44
ça c'est une lumière a la capthaddock. Superbe et comme d'habitude un excellent POV.
gilou530 (34) 2006-01-26 17:06
de sacré couleurs bien saturées, peut être un peu trop a mon gout, mais joli cadrage avec le mur a gauche bon boulot de correction.
alvaraalto (6173) 2006-01-26 17:21
What a marvellous spotlight you used with this picture. A perfect autumn atmosphere.
PJE (20758) 2006-01-26 20:04
Well Tan when you said Last Night in your title I can see it was a great evening for you. What a lovely photo showing the benefits of low light angles across the trees and buildings. Good work and a delight to see this scene!
singuanti (15250) 2006-01-26 21:49
Hi Tan. Yes that's an amazing light. I guess it's a good time to get a new camera with Minolta getting out of the camera business. Congrats and have fun with the new 20d!
Ann75 (0) 2006-01-26 22:41
My goodness, Tan...what an amazing shot!
The colors here are stunning, the light hitting the buildings is just awesome and I love this shot very much! Great POV, stunning composition and so well captured. Excellent shot!
ahmetgedikli (25448) 2006-01-27 0:26
Öyle güzel bir ışık ve öyle güzel bir fotoğrafki, renkler de süper... Elinize sağlık,
ChrisJ (95788) 2006-01-27 3:43
A wonderful warm cold opposition in color, between the orange & blue. Good sharpness & pov. Congratulations!
RGatward (20060) 2006-01-27 3:45
Fabulous autumn colours, good PoV and nice post acrd style framing of this iconic scene of the city.
PixelTerror (0) 2006-01-27 4:16
Wow looks like you pushed the PP as on your Ribeauville pic, this one is really shining out its autumn colors ! But have to admit the PoV is good and the dramatic effect striking.
Of course I was bit more interested in the WS, you did not add the EXIF but it seems it was taken at long range, I wonder whether your speed aws fast enough at that range...
Keep trying !
cam (9041) 2006-01-27 9:27
It is not often that I see Luxembourg scenery,maybe due to its small size.Its beauty should be more often recorded.
The colors are striking in a good composition.
The contrast is excellent.
Just a little bit of oversharpening for my taste,but that is my humble opinion and remove nothing from the quality of your picture and my pleasure to look at it.
pilpel-adom (3018) 2006-01-27 9:28
A nice capture of the autumn colors in Luxemburg! Good compo with the cathedral on the left and the sloping trees...The wall on the left side leads the eyes to the cathedral and adds depth to the picture!
donluicu (24722) 2006-01-27 10:12
excellent hot (even if it is an autumn shot!) shot!!
the warm colors of this end of day are great!
xavshot (69835) 2006-01-28 4:57
superbe photo avec cette compo qui descend de gauche à droite avec des couleurs extraordinaires. La lumière chaude est superbe
fayeulle (27827) 2006-01-28 4:58
You captured here a fantastic light over the town.
Stunning, as most of time !
Rossignol (2289) 2006-01-28 5:03
Beautiful colours accentuated by the warm evening sunlight. The leaf colours are incredible and the buildings behind really nice.
Thanks for sharing
banyanman (7789) 2006-01-28 5:48
What wonderful light you have captured here, Tan, the colours are just glorious. Composition is excellent with the spires on the left and the buildings in the sun tapering off to the right. I wonder if it is a touch over-sharpened though because there is a bit of halo effect around the roofs of the buildings. Cheers . . . David
martou (1660) 2006-01-28 16:18
wow, I'm really happy to revisited you're gallery, amazing colors and light effect on this scene capture, I like the building composition, good work,
john_c (24662) 2006-01-29 12:03
A brilliant and alluring composition, highlighted by the superb lighting and contrasting dark sky. What an interplay between the red and golden hues here. I also like the POV. The eye follows the little wall on the left and there are superb shadow effects in the shrubbery. Just a note on your WS: As a 20D owner, I have always viewed your shots with longing and nostalgia for the old days of Velvia and the magnificent results you have achieved - I will be most interested to follow your shots with the 20D. Best regards.

une manière très originale et très chaude de nous présenter cette petite ville européenne.
Très bel ensoleillement dont tu as su tirer un maximum de profit.
Le cadrage et le POV sont excellents.
nerve (10231) 2006-01-31 11:13
Tebrikler Canon 20D için.. Dijital dünyaya hoşgeldin.. (maalesef mi diyeyim bilemiyorum, çünkü senin muhteşem film karelerine çok alıştık, lol!) Kısa sürede 20D ile de nefis kareler çekeceğinden eminim bu imajında olduğu gibi.. Nefis bir monochrom görüntü var burada..
Selam ve sevgiler.
Roly (2024) 2006-02-01 1:22
And once again, the light was on your side. Nice, very nice, it's otherwise a quite trivial cityscape but with such light it easily transforms into a beautiful, eye catching shot.
peter1892 (1681) 2006-02-01 5:36
Hi Tan - the autumnal colours are really nice, and are compliemted perfectly by the setting sun. Well done.
cherryripe (21033) 2006-02-01 12:57
This photo reminds me of a very long time ago when I was young, had a rail pass and did silly things. From Germany, I decided to take a late train to Luxembourg and stay overnight in the local Youth Hostal. However, it was closed being off-season and as the station was too, I had to spend the night drinking hot chocolates in a cafebar full of weird people.
Anyway back to the photo.
The colours are so rich thanks to the splendid light. I like the position of the church on the left and the line of the wall.
anesugur (18789) 2006-02-04 16:48
Öyle güzel bir ışıkla çekmişsinki harika bir kontrast yakalamışsın.
Eline sağlık Tan. Selamlar. Uğur
jbweasle (9373) 2006-02-05 11:34
Hello Tan, this is some of the most incredible golden illumination I have seen in a photo. The buildings seem to be radiating a light of their own. The fabulous red trees in the foreground look like they are on fire. The colours are wonderfully set off by the dark, brooding sky behind.
premels (2400) 2006-02-09 17:27
Hi Tan, I lived and worked in Luxembourg for a year and an half. I remember some nice rusty autumn lights but nothing as beautifull as this. Congratulation also for avoiding one of the ubiquitous cars in the frame.
sarju (5324) 2006-02-19 23:46
hmmmmm ... beautiful light
just adding my two cents to this wonderfully brilliant photo
have a nice week ... cheers ... sarju
Angshu (55259) 2006-03-22 3:49
I am blown away by the colours. Amazing colours of the foliage & the reflection of the light on the buidings. the overcast sky accentuates the light effect
mysticmoon79 (320) 2006-04-02 7:58
Great dawn light. Seems like autumn is nice too sometimes...
svo555 (1028) 2006-04-29 14:27
Exquisite light and colour tones. Composition adequate too.
saguzar (862) 2006-04-29 14:42
Amazing orange colour housesin and vegetation.I like the blue dark sky and the POV .
Excellent time exposure.
smash2707 (3320) 2006-05-26 22:02
Wonderful light and wonderful warm fall colors contrasting with the blue-grey sky. Simply excellent. Have a nice weekend, Yvonne
ebrulo (351) 2006-08-15 4:56
Great warm colors and composition.
Sureyya (358) 2007-10-11 15:07
Yapılarla uyumlu bir tonda birleşen ağaçlar ve sıklığı çok iyi, ama soldaki kenarlık görüntüde olmasaymış gerçekten çok güzel olurmuş. Renkler harika.
