A church path in Elblag is one of the most interesting monuments of city, and at the same time by an unique person in a scale a country. Presented a narrow transition between tenement houses, connecting three churches of Old City. Presented the most rapid and shortest road between them, from here also her name. She conducted from the church of Saint Spirit, ran about at the church of saint Nicolas and closed before the gate of black Dominican monastery of Hollest of Virgin Mary(now Gallery of El).
After World War II escaped only uniting section the streets of a Holy Spirit and Mostowa. Whole passage expands 10 Gothic bows. The rescued fragment of church foot-path determines one from small, original medieval elements, which was kept on Elblag Old Town.
In 2006 year, during June festivities Days of Elblag, occurred the opening of church foot-path for the tourists. From post-war time was inaccessible for the sightseeing, in the fear of the devastation of monument. Church foot-path it is possible every day to admire from 9.00 to 17.00.

A beautifully lit perspective down this brick-lined alley. The man makes a good focal point and helps create depth for the scene. Lovely warm tones and superb clarity. I like it very much indeed.

stunning perspective here, enhanced with 11mm.s super wide angle. i like how the brickworks lead the eye to the man beneath the arches. i do feel trapped in a labyrinth.

J'aime beaucoup la texture très spéciale de cette image. Les deux murs semblent vouloir se rejoindre à l'endroit ou l'homme se trouve. La légère contre plongée donne beaucoup d'ampleur à l'ensemble.

Great depth effect with the perspective and the lines of these walls, good light and colors management.

This is a beautiful narrow lane with a lot of fine architectural details. The colours and sharpness are very good and give a strong sense of the texture of the bricks. The man coming towards us is a perfect addition to the composition.

una foto che sembra la scena di un film tanto essa appare drammatica per la lunga serie di mattoni che fiancheggiano la strada e per le deformazioni riportate per l'ottica grandangolare usata.
La stessa presenza umana acuisce il senso di drammaticità anche se il cielo azzurro stempera un po' questo stesso effetto.
Ottima nitidezza e colori piuttosto saturi hanno contribuito a questa tua scelta indovinata.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Excellent point of view to show us as many arches as possible!
Very good DOF.
The person is situated on the perfect spot in this alley.
The bricks are perfect sharp and contrast beautifully with the blue sky on top.
Best regards, Paul

l'architettura d questo vicolo mi ricorda un angolo di Siena che ho presentato un pò di tempo fa.
Questo scatto è più bello del mio, sia qualitativamente, sia per la presenza della persona che rende il tutto più interessante.

The perspective is super! The wide lens works to perfection...like the details of the bricks...leading our eye to the arches in the BG. Red bricks contrast well with the blue sky

What a great DOF thanks to the high walls and the gates. A fantastical vista indeed. Fine colour hues and high sharpness. Well done
After a 10 days holiday in Southern Thailand I'm now back to TE
macjake (54940) 2013-07-11 22:40
great shot here my friend.
even without the top layers of the photo it still has a strong visual impact, especially with the man there.
I personally try to keep people out of my shots, but here is a classic example of why to HAVE that human presence.
fine shot with lots of depth and height.

Great Pov, color, light... Fantastique¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ greetings¡¡¡
ourania (29445) 2013-07-27 10:21
a very attractive and fascinating presentation of the long church path. You have exalted the appeal of the architecture, the perspectives, the textures and the colours. I love the sense of depth and height and how the repetitive rows of bricks intensify it. Sharpness, lighting and colours are marvellous making viewing very pleasant. It's great how the single figure in the distance can counterbalance the wild dynamism of the composition. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
jmdias (54123) 2013-08-06 7:13
a marvelous pov enhancing the perspective and the diagonals. I liked the personage in the place. I would cut off the upper side of the compo, but this is a personal preference only. nice job.
