This is very beautiful city and this picture has been taken during our holiday in Poland.
Gdansk is a Polish city on the Baltic coast, the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland's principal seaport and the center of the country's fourth-largest metropolitan area.
The city lies on the southern edge of Gdansk Bay (of the Baltic Sea), in a conurbation with the city of Gdynia, spa town of Sopot, and suburban communities, which together form a metropolitan area called the Tricity (Trojmiasto), with a population near 740,000. Gdansk itself has a population of 455,830 (June 2010), making it the largest city in the Pomerania region of Northern Poland.
Gdansk is the historical capital of Gdansk Pomerania and the largest city of Kashubia. The city was close to the former late medieval boundary between West Slavic and Germanic seized lands and it has a complex political history with periods of Polish rule, periods of German rule, and extensive self-rule, with two spells as a free city. It has been part of modern Poland since 1945.
Gdansk is situated at the mouth of the Motlawa River, connected to the Leniwka, a branch in the delta of the nearby Vistula River, whose waterway system supplies 60% of the area of Poland and connects Gdansk to the national capital in Warsaw. This gives the city a unique advantage as the center of Poland's sea trade. Together with the nearby port of Gdynia, Gdansk is also an important industrial centre. Historically an important seaport and shipbuilding centre, Gdansk was a member of the Hanseatic League.
The city was the birthplace of the Solidarity movement which under the leadership of Lech Walesa, played a major role in bringing an end to Communist rule across Central Europe

We get a very quiet image with this market square as subject, also the a lot people care for a pleasant picture.
But the church and tower are the real eye catchers on these wonderful picture.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

I like very much how balanced and elegant this composition looks as you have employed the elements that define the town scenery, the colours and the perspectives in an excellent way. We get a great idea of this nice Time Square place and of its architectural surroundings, depth and clarity are superb. Apart from that, even beyond the physical description, the picture is a delight to look at for its beautiful light and bright contrasting colours.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

A fine capture of this attractive animated scene with a pleasant summery atmosphere. The colourful façades on either side of the square draw the viewer in and guide them toward the focal point offered by the clock tower. The lovely sky makes an excellent and contrasting backcloth. Very good technical presentation.

J'aime beaucoup le point de vue choisi pour nous montrer cette superbe place de Gdansk. La lumière est particulièrement expressive et fait ressortir les couleurs. L'ensemble est d'une grande netteté.

Piekne zdjęcie, widać że to lato, aż zazdroszczę przy obecnych zimowych temperaturach. Gdańsk jest kopalnią pięknych motywów, świetnie zrobione

Beautiful point of view on this architecturally fascinating square. So many points of interest here, the tower, the colors, the people going about their business. All tied together into a fine shot indeed.
Thanks for sharing
saxo042 (37794) 2013-11-30 8:19
This looks indeed like a very pleasant city. A very fine street scene, absolutely free of cars, just people strolling around, many outdoor restaurants and very attractive old buildings. A picture with strong and good colours!
PaulVDV (28275) 2013-11-30 9:39
I remember this pedestrian street in the center of Gdańsk with its wonderful facades and the Town Hall with its high spire.
Beautiful atmospheric shot, full of life and very colourful.
Best regards, Paul

Good composed capture to show the colored original architecture, leaving as protagonist the magnificent clock tower of the cathedral
Nice place to relax eating at the restaurants or buying souvenirs at the yellow kiosk
Like the columns with red flowers

nice view here. Very good architectures of Poland. Great colourful frame. Well done. Tfs.
After some busy working days I am back here again. For the photographic journey... For you and with you...
mkamionka (35936) 2013-12-05 8:25
wydawalo mi sie ze ostatnio podobne zdjecie u kogos widzialem, u Craiga? Ja rowniez chcialbym je miec w swojej kolekcji niestety nie mialem zbyt dobrej pogody bedac juz jakis czas tmu w Gdansku bylo to zreszta w czasach przed-cyfrowych. Tobie natomiast pogoda udala sie znakomicie i niebo i kamiennice takie kolorowe ze az sie przyjemnie oglada. Szkoda moze tylko ze perspektywa nie jest wyrownana ale wiem ze niektorzy preferuja taka nauralna perspektywe.

gran bella città e bella foto, con una bella luce e delle splendide facciate.
Magnifico il palazzo con la torre sotto questo cielo.
ourania (44368) 2013-12-29 3:46
this is a very lovely setting, elegant and colourful in every sense of the word. The depth and clarity of your picture are remarkable, we get a delightful sense of the free space and of the arrangement of the buildings. The blue sky is a very fine complement for the setting and its colours. I like very much the human presence and particularly the role of the gentleman walking towards your vantage point, he offers great reference. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,
