Hi TE friends
I was in this lovely city in 2006. It's a very nice city with a beautiful gardens and monuments.
We are in the main square with esplanades and coffees.
This town rich in historic buildings lies on the road and railway line running from Katowice to Bielsko-Biała. Surrounded by a park lies the magnate residence of the Hochberg von Pless family - the princes of Pszczyna (formerly Pless), who once owned extensive lands famous for breeding European bison. The rich interiors of the castle rooms, now a museum, are dazzling.
Another example of a sumptuous magnate residence, the Pszczyna castle houses a museum of interior decorations from different periods of the castle’s existence.
Pszczyna is a town in southern Poland with 26,827 inhabitants (2003). Situated in the Silesian Voivodship (since 1999), previously in Katowice Voivodship (1975–1998).
The total area of 174.09 km² includes 94.66 km² of farmland (67.99 km² of arable land, 1.51 km² of orchards, 16.11 km² of meadows, 9.05 km² of pasture) and 51.27 km² of forest grounds (49.71 km² of forests and forest landasy, 1.56 km² of tree-planted and shrub-planted land). (Pszczyna in figures, 2003.
The name of Pszczyna is known to every student for being an exception to the Polish spelling rule that there is always “rz” instead of “sz” after “p” and for appearing in some versions of a tongue-twister, used by Jan Brzechwa in his poem Chrząszcz.
PS - I didn't understand why the pictures has lack of sharpness in left side

that is a very pleasant surprise. I have never visited this charming town. It seems that you are advertising unknown to me regions of my country. Your presentation is beautiful, really so full of color and interesting architecture.
Have a good weekend,

Bella composición del paisaje urbano con todos sus elementos: plazas, árboles, terrazas, edificios representativos, ...
Muy buena gestión de la luz y el color.

This is a well composed shot with the lines in the pavement leading the eye into the scene. The placement of the tower is great helping to draw the eye across the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness.

Merveilleuse place bien présentée avec une excellente qualité d'image, une belle carte postale. Bonne composition et le pavé carrelé accentue la perspective. Le clocher ajoute de l'intérêt à la photo et les couleurs sont superbes.

Une très jolie composition, très lumineuse et colorée, de cette très belle ville;
La zone légèrement floue à gauche et au premier plan me semble due à une mise au point sur les bâtiments du fond et une grande ouverture (6,7) qui limite la profondeur de champ?

Hi Aires, So you know something about Polish spelling! Could you pronounce "chrząszcz"? it is rather Szczebrzeszyn then Pszczyna. I did not known iyt is such a beautiful town. I have never been there. Fantastic composition with many details.

lovely this corner of the main square of the city with the old buildings and the trees to create a pleasant and carefree environment.I like the POV as the perspective that is created.The absence of people make the scene more welcome.
Have a nice day,Danos
