Kia ora Piotr (greetings from New Zealand),
A nice composition which captures the pleasure of the fountain for this boy along with the fact that you are having a hot summer. Cheers, Neil

Beautiful how you managed to "freeze" the water jets, piotr, a fine photojob done.
The kid in orange shirt added much vivid tone to the image.
Have a nice new day,
jemaflor (87321) 2014-08-06 23:16
Well taken, perfect composition with this boy, good focus and sharpness, interesting result with the color of the boy's tee shirt.

i bambini non possono stare distanti dall'acqua, ogni scusa è buona per poterci giocare e questo bambino non poteva mancare l'occasione, proprio come il fotografo che non poteva lasciarsi sfuggire questa ghiotta occasione.
Bella diagonale con gli zampilli e perfetta la presenza del bambino con la sua maglia arancione.

The boy in his orange top makes an eye-catching focal point. The image is nicely lit and well exposed to capture the motion in the water. I like the crop and the fine colours.

Nawet nie wiedzialam, ze w Lodzi jest taka rekordowa fontanna. :)
Ladne zdjecie, kolory letnich ciuszkow mieszaja sie z urbanistycznymi szarosciami.
holmertz (43283) 2014-08-07 4:07
This was well seen and well handled. You have put the long fountain on a very fine diagonal and placed the brightly dressed boy nicely off-centre, facing the centre. The dark sky makes the important part of the composition almost jump at us. You have frozen the drops to make the water almost look like sculptured ice, or even glass.
I regret only having time for a half day in Lodz during my recent journey. I had no idea I would find the city so attractive, since it is not generally known as a tourist spot.
saxo042 (37596) 2014-08-07 8:06
The strong colours of the boy are perfectly placed in the composition here. A very attractive scene from daily life with the water cascades as important parts of the picture.
nikkitta (15762) 2014-08-07 12:29
Just saw the WS to have an idea of the fountain, you chose a good moment or time to take the photo focusing in the boy that obviously enjoy playing with the water
Also the orange T shirt gives a note of color
Well done, regards

Widzê, ze moda dotarla tez do Lodzi.

Dobry kadr i kolorstyka.

pierrefonds (58730) 2014-08-07 17:11
You hqave captured well the action of the child. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the water fountain. The god luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
abmdsudi (44964) 2014-08-07 20:02
I love the selective focussing and the striking colour of the kid instantly attract ones eye into the whole shot. The catchy water fountain's motion effect is well registered creating good contrast and interest as main subject with human element to boost the liveliness. It's expertly exposed and extremely fits the happy mood and superb colour rendition, combined to transform into a wonderful shot. Great lens work, and TFS

cześć Piotrze, Nie wiedziałam ,że ŁOdź ma najdłuższą fontannę w Europie, ale ja malo wiem na temat Lodzi. Byłam kilka lat temu, ale wtedy manufaktura nie była jeszcze gotowa. Fajne zdjecie, w upalny dzień taka ochloda to wspaniała rzecz.
annjackman (20371) 2014-08-07 23:45
You took this from an interesting angle with the water fountain forming a good diagonal and the boy well placed in the frame. His orange T-shirt is a bonus and makes him stand out. The DOF is just perfect with enough of the BG visible to make it interesting without being distracting.
Kind Regards, Ann

piekna scenka, od razu kojarzy sie z latem. Interesujace miejsce w Lodzi pokazane w dwoch obrazach. Widze, ze temat koreluje z moim poprzednim zdjeciem.
Nicou (126246) 2014-08-08 1:46
Le enfants sont toujours attirés par l'eau quelle vue et captage quelle compo et image superbe ce jet et ce jeune avec cet orange grandiose captage et vue merveilleux.
Bravo et amitié
maria-v1981 (10816) 2014-08-08 7:26
This is an excellent catch from the scene and many dynamism with that child palying with the fountains. Overall excelllent shot, very enjoyable especially with the heat we have here in Greece.
adramad (39452) 2014-08-08 7:29
Lovely and refreshing image, these hot days, these sources with the jets coming directly from the soil, abound lately in many cities, where it is also common to see the children enjoying the water jets, as in this case, where the kid gets a nice complement to the image.
An image to enjoy with its beautiful color, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
rbassin (19169) 2014-08-08 9:41
Une très belle photo,la scène est sympathique et joyeuse.
Les couleurs et la lumière sont superbes et et se combinent bien vécu l'eau
ktanska (25301) 2014-08-08 12:32
A wonderful shot of this special fountain with good focus on the boy playing with water. Short depth-of-field is well used here.
I think this could be cropped a little from the left where there's that light block like object and someones trousers needlessly visible.
Silvio1953 (126808) 2014-08-09 13:18
Ciao Piotr, gtrat view of fantastic fountain, lovely composition with nice boy, splendid light, wonderful colors and excellent perspective, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
mirosu (15094) 2014-08-10 12:59
Excellent snapshot. The fountain is in superb light, the boy's T-short creates excellent color contrast.
Very well done.

For the children a heaven on earth these fountain, alone I hope that the temperatures are high for these young boy.
You have put the long fountain on a very fine diagonal and placed the brightly dressed boy nicely off-centre, facing the centre.
Colours and sharpness are very nice to see
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice new week,

Hello dear friend

one shot is one thousand words
eveything is well exposed to the
movement of the water

alvaraalto (6177) 2014-08-14 6:25
Stop the water!!! – I don’t think the boy will succeed, but looking at his face the boy takes his task very serious.
Cricri (109625) 2014-08-14 11:37
Belle et amusante scène, j'aime la prise des jets d'eau, la lumière et la couleur orange du t-shirt du garçon, deux belles en WS, merci
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-15 7:52
It is a nice slow shutter work with perfect exposure. The boy was playing with water and nicely exhibited the faded background. Good composition and recording. Sharpness, color specially deep orange t-shirt of the boy and POV are well.
with best wishes and have a nice weekend.
aliabazari (16050) 2014-08-16 0:52
Hi Piotr dear
A very beautiful shot of the children playing in the water. Exposure clarity and well performed. Thanks for recording this nice picture
jmdias (57527) 2014-08-22 17:02
I liked the concentration of the boy playing with the waters. the colors of his shirt created a nice contrast with the waters and I liked the blurred image of people ahead ..TFS.
imageme (1790) 2014-09-01 7:50
HI Piotr, This is a very beautiful scene with a wall of water separating the people on one side and the boy on the other side. Perfect timing to record this curious boy's playing with the water. Nice light and tones along with great details. Thank for sharing
Miguel82 (25477) 2015-01-09 11:38
That boy was hot and is cooling off using public water jets Piotr, good result, perfect sharpness and pov
