A street scene from the old and historic city of Doesburg.When you think that the Lady in the background
looks a bit unreal you´re right-She is a retired
shop window dummy and sits here day-in day-out.

A wonderful almost French pic. Good compo and great colours; the woman in the dark is a very nice myserious detail. well captured, Albrecht

that's a nice and peaceful view, very original. there is a strange mood, as we are in 1970's. that's very good

Very good! I like this composition. It could be within a theater.
I like the colors too.

I would like to try the "Mosterdsoep". I think you were quite lucky to take the picture without people on the terrace. Good cropping, colours and sharpness (I can read the menu hmmm). Did the shopowner pay you to do this commercial? I think I'll have a bite to eat now ;-)

Hi Hermann, A nice photo showing the typical European relax environment on the street in small cities. A nicely framed picture showing the entire front view of the shop. The picture is well taken with nice contrast, clarity, and sharpness. Well done.

A pretty good use of the retired shop-window dummy, I have to say - in any case she decorates your scene really well. A charming and colorful detail looking into this shop (that would be called a "deli" where I am right now, I guess) and an inviting add with the outside chairs and tables. Well seen, Hermann.

I really thought that woman was waiting for someone..!
Very well framed. And good clarity.

First of all it is the dummy that interested me :))) thought it was a real nordic girl like all the french guys dream about (at the same time you dream about our french girls :)))
Anyway I must recognize this composition is good whith these empty arm chairs in front of her and you caught very nice colors and a good facade.
TU for this interesting post.

Mooi werk en prettig weekend!

Hi Hermann! (A bit later then usual due to a tech problem.) This is a delightful and very graphic capture (nice pattern, those chairs). The dummy is a real hoot and very clever and I like the abundance of outdoor type to. Erg fijn werk.
Een goed Pinkster-weekend toegewenst!

Leuke foto, maar zo te zien zat er helemaal niemand op dit terasje! De "vrouw" is een leuke toevoeging. Mmm, het menu klinkt lekker.

Een waar kunstwerk. Heel goed gedaan. Ik wilde bijna een praatje gaan maken met de dame maar zag betijds dat ze nogal stijf was.

I think that images which build into collective archives of a place are an important source of information for future generations - a shot such as this, clearly presented and with text is an important little document of that place and for that place now and in the future.
TE encourages us to do that with images but perhaps in what inevitably becomes a more scattered way - but there are some photographers here who concentrate a little more on an 'extended home territory' - like yourself for one Hermann - I think this is great!

Good afternoon Hermann!
Very interesting street scene. Good composition and details. Very nice contrast between white frames of the chairs and background. Could be good to sit for a while in front of the shop and take a cup of expresso. Very well seen and done

Great shot of the cafe here, it looks like a model, but when I looked closer, I think she is posing, well shot though
