Granary renaissance of the seventeenth century.
Torun - is an ancient city in northern Poland, on the Vistula River. Its population is 205,934 as of June 2009. Toruñ is one of the oldest cities in Poland. The medieval old town of Toruñ is the birthplace of the astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus.
In 1997 the medieval part of the city was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 2007 the Old Town in Toruñ was added to the list of Seven Wonders of Poland. National Geographic Polska rated the old town market and the Gothic town hall as one of the "30 Most Beautiful Places in the World." In 2010 Forbes magazine ranked Toruñ as number one of the "Polish Cities Attractive for Business". In 2009 it was listed as one of the "Best Cities to Live in Poland", in a ranking published by Przekrój.
Previously it was the capital of the Toruñ Voivodeship (1975–98) and the Pomeranian Voivodeship (1921–45). Since 1999, Toruñ has been a seat of the self-government of the Kujawy-Pomerania Province and, as such, is one of its two capitals (together with Bydgoszcz). The cities and neighboring counties form the Bydgoszcz-Toruñ bi-polar metropolitan area. In September 2004, Bydgoszcz Medical School joined Toruñ's Nicolaus Copernicus University as its Collegium Medicum.

A very good capture of this splendid granary, whose red brickwork looks well against that peerless blue sky. A fine presentation with top quality light, colours and sharpness.

Wonderful picture of the original building, its architecture is unusual and contrasting his good number of windows with the white picket fence, creating a beautiful contrast with the red of the facade.
Impressive with its intense sky blue on a perfect complement to this magnificent work.
Have a nice day.

Architektura tego budynku jest zachwycajaca! Te okienka są tak wyraziste, ze aż trudno je ominąć. Fajnie wyszło. Super saturacja i ostrość.

The design of the repetitive façade is remarkable. The framing is very nice with trees and houses. The light and colors are excellent, as sharpness. Bravo.
Have a nice evening

I have never seen like this before, it's a treasure and splendour that deserve to be in the list of WHS. A poignant shot in excellent format of this magnificent architecture, a real cracker my friend! the stunning colors and detail are so superb. Well exposed in fine clarity with the contrast against the blue adding to the impact of the scene. This makes an intriguing image and just fascinating.
Congrats and TFS.

Hello dear Krzysztof,
This is one of the "best" fassades in your gallery.
I wished that this harsh shadow at right bottom could be avoided, but even with it, it's a to call capture.
TFS and best regards
