Looking at the countries I visited last year and my posted photo's on TE, its clear that Gdansk is very under represented!
So perhaps my next few photos will be from this beautiful city. Without a doubt I would recommend visiting Gdansk, such stunning architecture and there is something to be photographed with each head turn!
For example, this is the Main City Hall, which is now the City Historical Museum. This gothic renaissance architecture seems to be everywhere in Gdansk.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
A big thank you goes out to our TE friend John (tyro) for helping me with the new "Map View" feature.
its now added to my photos.
For somebody like me, who wants to map out my photo's for destinations before traveling, this map feature is so important. I hope it becomes a popular tool.

a magnificent building this and an amazingly detailed and beautiful capture of it too! The pale blue sky and warm tones of the walls just complement each other so splendidly. Faultless execution, processing and presentation as always. Stunning!
Wishing you a great weekend - Brian.

A most beautiful building captured here in warm sunlight. Lovely colours and exceptional clarity. Fine upwards point of view makes good use of the attractive sky as a contrasting backdrop to the burnished red tones of the architecture.

beautiful architecture indeed. In fact I envy you the trip which you did across Poland and Czech Republic. I would love to do it someday with my daughter. I have seen most of the places but without a proper camera.
The city hall here was captued in a fantastic light. It well emphasizes the details of the architecture.
Excellent presentation from Gdansk, looking forward to seeing more,

La très belle lumière enveloppe délicatement l'édifice et renforce sa beauté architecturale.
Le tout sur un ciel griffé par quelques cirrus.
Très belle mise en image.

The upwards POV on this elaborate architecture gives such an air of imposing majesty to the buildings, which in their own right are stunning works. The level of detail on that tower is superb. The lower part of the building reminds me a little of a single façade of the tower of London.
Such a beautiful soft blue sky behind too. Really cool, cheers
All the best
P.S. What happened to your cool shot of the house in Lima? I was enjoying playing spot the Beetle :)

Great presentation of this magnificent building in Gdansk. Good angle of view looking upwards towards a beautiful blue sky which is in good contrast to the lovely warm colours of the Townhall itself. Lighting on the side of the building help show off the fantastic detail in the architecture.

A very impressive building with great details. The light is fantastic and even the clouds of Gdansk seem to be prettier than in most places.
Have a nice weekend,

I was in Gdansk many years ago. This is beautiful town with long history.Here on your shot I can see this beauty and the history together. Wonderful shot. This shot was taken in the evening I suppose. Wonderful colours, blue sky. TFS
Have a nice Sunday, Craig!

Gdansk is famous as the place where Lech Wałęsa founded the first trade union in the shipyards, and began the process of transforming Poland from a Communist to a post Communist state. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lech_Wa%C5%82%C4%99sa
The things they teach you at Uni! But I remember following it on the news as it happened. A superb upward pov with good sharpness and a superb warm cold colour contrast between the reddish orange facade of the cathedral, and the blue sky. Good upward pov and perspective too. Tfs!

I agree, it`s a beautiful city and it`s under represented here on TE. This is an excellent photo of the building under a lovely blue sky with some attractive veiled clouds. Fine lighting that brings out nice details along the facade. Very nice work! TFS.
Have a nice week.
Best regards, Erling

Good September morning, Craig,
Superb! My congratulations! I see Gdansk can gives us more and more new ideas and outstanding photos. Thanks for this post. Impressive view if we know about the WWII heritage when Danzig transfigured to ruins...

Last light picture with wonderful golden tones cast onto the cityhall and its prominent towers above.
A upwards POV, not an easy task - but almost with no distortion: the buildings shown its grandeur.
Beautiful elements like the clock and small turrets atop.
Bravo for this one, have a nice weekend,
