Gdañsk is a Polish city on the Baltic coast, at the centre of the country's fourth-largest metropolitan area. The city lies on the southern edge of Gdañsk Bay , 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 with a population near 1,400,000. Gdansk itself has a population of 460,427 (December 2012), making it the largest city in the Pomerania region of Northern Poland.
A special dedication to Craig (Macjake) which saw Gdañsk with different towers, but this viewpoint there was not.

A very well composed photograph sees the river acting as a most effective guide and separation line. You have shown us some excellent details of the city with its tall buildings, its red roofs, its mixture of old and new and a busy port, way in the distance.
I must congratulate you on the light and the colours. This is a most expansive view of Gdansk, a city I have never seen.

I have visited Gdańsk and loved the sight of the buildings along the quay and especially the old port crane. But I had no idea that you could climb a tower there to get this fantastic view ... Or were you taking a helicopter?
Beautiful red buildings and roofs and beautiful with the diagonal line of the river.
Best regards, Paul

Excellent point of view ( giant wheel?)with the colorful houses and roofs at the front contrasting in a way, with a good sky and chimneys and cranes at the back
Like to see also restaurants and bars along the water to enjoy warm days
Well done, regards

Fine view from high above of the Gdansk classical architecture crowded along the river front, with a pathway including restaurants perfect for relaxing, and a river cruise ship anchored, but the classical sailing vessel really stimulates my interest.
thanks for sharing,

Fabulous red roof-tops and waterfront houses, in beautiful Gdansk, Piotr.
Skyline in a diagonal POV superbly collected, there is a fine contrast to the cloudy sky.
Great photojob done, like it a lot, one of Europe's charming town.
Have a nice new day,

Beautiful view overlooking the city that shows us a beautiful colorful architecture.
SnapRJW (31625) 2014-08-19 23:23
Hello Piotr - What a wonderful vantage point you found here, the beautiful façades along the riverside are much more extensive than I has imagined and it looks as if the whole length is given over to waterside outdoor cafes. This is a lovely place for a relaxed stroll, plenty to see and enjoy. Interesting to see the signs of industry on the horizon too.
Good revealing light and finely presented detail, this is a lovely shot.
pajaran (54203) 2014-08-19 23:28
Interesantan tekst o gradu sa opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazana arhitektura i trenutak sa oblacima koji donose kisu.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.
An interesting article on the town with a description, a nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, beautiful architecture and shown the moment the clouds that bring rain.
Good work, nice captured moment, beautiful colors.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best.
holmertz (43795) 2014-08-20 3:21
This is a superb view of central Gdansk. Although there are lots of clouds they are beautifully shaped and catch a very good light. The light generally is far superior to what I experienced during my visit to the city in late May. The colours have a wonderful clarity. I am curious to know from where you took this photo. It looks like you were standing on the roof of the small boutique hotel where I was staying, but you seem to have been much higher. I can't remember a tower in that block.
snunney (88465) 2014-08-20 4:10
The view point is indeed splendid giving us a bird's eye view of these wonderful façades facing onto the river. I like the long oblique perspective with the river sweeping across the frame. The image benefits from excellent light and colours and has superb clarity.
pierrefonds (59426) 2014-08-20 5:13
The length of the water front is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the boats and of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
danos (89691) 2014-08-20 5:13
very nice the panoramic view of this section of the town with the beautiful buildings of the river's waterfront to dominating the image.The brilliant light of the day enhance the beauty and the details of them.
Sergiom (65369) 2014-08-20 6:33
Quelle ville magnifique. Tu as su trouver le point de vue idéal pour mettre sa beauté en valeur. Les quais forment une très belle diagonale dans l'image et apportent de la profondeur. Les couleurs sont magnifiques.
macjake (60048) 2014-08-20 10:16

A very scenic skyline by the waterways with highly compact grand old colorful buildings providing great interest and lovely framing to the left frame
Impressive long perspective and depth. the dark water and sky lend a striking contrast and colour breaker, Fine photo works, Congrats
mayjayne (4293) 2014-08-22 4:41
A well selected POV; by including the other side of the river, you have managed to create a more interesting presentation of these colourful facades than the norm. The clouds are complementary.
eldancer1 (30873) 2014-08-22 7:31
Wow! Beautiful view of this historic city. I really that old ship on the water. Love the architectures also. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Bravo pour le choix du POV, le fleuve pris en diagonale donne de la profondeur, belle lumière sur la ville, belles architectures, le contraste des deux bateaux, un ciel superbe, très belle présentation

znakomity punkt widzenia. Rzeczywiscie nie widzialem chyba jeszcze zdjecia z tego miejsca. Nie napisales skad je zrobiles?
Udalo Ci sie tutaj zmiescic spory kawalek starego miasta jak rowniez te bardzo fotogeniczne portowe zurawie na horyoncie.
Bardzo dobre swiatlo, rowniez niebo udalo sie swietnie z przyjemnymi chmurkami.
Wspaniala praca, pozdrowienia
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-27 18:37
An excellent view of the coastal city Gdañsk and from an well position where you shoot it, very nice, just like a picture card. Very shaped and good color balance, most vivid.

this is a very lovely and interesting view, an excellent composition. You used a superb vantage point and a bold perspective to describe the intricate and fascinating cityscape. The sweeping depth and the vibrant colours are so attractive and the viewer can lose track of time studying the details. Your work on light and contrast is exquisite. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
