Visiting Wroclaw during my week driving trains in Poland I couldn't help being impressed by how up-beat the place was, in spite of relentlessly gloomy weather. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and the Rynek had been impressively set-up for Christmas, with a huge tree and a temporary skating rink in the widest part of the square. I'm sure there must be a down side to the place, but I wasn't aware of it in the 2 1/2 hours I had there.

The very colourful facades are perfect to counterbalance the greyish sky, and bring a touch of warmth in this winter scene. I would have prefered the girls not to overlap so much in the middle of the frame, because the two foreground sides seem a bit empty.

Lodowisko w pięknym otoczeniu. Mimo zimy wyszło bardzo ciepłe w odbiorze zdjęcie. Podoba mi się to zestawienie starych kamienic wrocławskich i dzieciaków na łyżwach (same dziewczynki i same białe łyżwy).

I like the repetition of the colorful facades of the bg buildings. The fg skaters add scale & context. Good sharpness & pov. Tfs!

Hi Richard, You have well captured the fun you have at the skating ring with the beautiful city buildings in the background. You have well captured the dynamics and the celebrative mood here. Well done.

Nice photo from the old town, Richard, in which the blend of well-preserved façades and the activity of the girls on the ice blend into a delightful total. As mentioned by some other critics the timing regarding the skaters' postures could have been a little better but the overall result is still good and vivid.

hi richard, i love wroclaw, and i find its market square to be the most beautiful and spectacular market squares i have seen;
nice shot - as jan (lotos) is mentioning - it is surprising that there were only girls skiting, and that we can see only white boots :-))
