Main Market Square in Wroclaw taken through the stained glass window of the Town Hall.
The Market Square is a rectangular, medieval market square, one of the largest markets in Europe with the dimensions 213 x 178 m, founded according to Magdeburg law between 1214 and 1232. Over time, the patricians' houses appeared and by the middle of the 14th century they had formed a closed construction with the limits of the plots defined. There are now 60 numbered plots. Each property has a traditional name, usually associated with the coat of arms visible on the facade for instance Under the Griffins, Under the Blue Sun or Under the golden Dog.
In the photo you can see the southern part of the Market Square.

Hi Ryszard. Interesting idea and an artistic result. I would crop the top 40% of the image as there is too much empty space up there and it takes away from the captivating street details. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

Une vision très originale du Main Market Square à travers les vitres colorées de l'Hôtel de Ville.

A new way to have an interesting picture, go though a different colored window, changing the colors and deforming a little bit the subject: the street.

Each of the rhombus shaped glass element, show diff. view, Ryszard.
Nicely taken the market scenery from this window, street market action is vivid in colors and with motion, and there is fine clear details through.
Have a nice Sunday,

Ha ha, I tried to take the same kind of photo through one of these windows but mine didn't turn out well. This is superb composition which gives the square very nice colours and a very original look.

fajne i pomyslowe zdjecie. Swietny ten naturalny filtr. Wyszlo kolorowo z piekna wroclawska starowka w tle.
Milego nowego tygodnia.

A lively city square seen from totally diff perspective making use of the transparent coloured stain glass as good fg framing. I love the array of colours, well controlled highlights, finely exposed and great in depth view. It's creative unconventional way of seeing things. Excellent catch, Congrats
