Hoho, ale Ci się nagromadziło jubileuszy i okazji. Dobry powód, żeby się napić jakiegoś szlachetnego trunku. Pejzaż miejski niczego sobie, choć na tak zacną okazję można było nieco zaszaleć. Pozdrawiam.

500 postings. That's impressive, I admire your dedication.
This is a fine photograph with which to mark this important milestone. A well balanced composition, and I like the colourful buildings. They look so new and clean that it's quite obvious that they are reconstructed, but the rebuilders did a good job.

Ladny strzal, dobra kompozycja, tylko troche ludzi brakuje - pusto jak po katastrofie jadrowej

Triple congratulations, Aleksander!:) Nice perspective of the street leading to this tower. I like the colours and luminosity of the shot. Well done and keep posting your beautiful work!
PS very interesting WS photos, they really tell the story of destruction and reconstruction of this place.

Hello Aleksander, the daylight marvelously emphasizes the relief and architecture this these buildings, this area very seems to me attracting and the light is pleasant here adding size to the landscape, the colors sound just as it should be and are a magnifier leaves this blue sky, the luminosity is besides the major element of this composition, the decoration is well exposed with a pretty alternation of quite frank colour which animates this foreground, me I like the work and the division of a member sympathetic nerve that j`apprécie, as for the expert of this kind of architecture he will find there their account, happy birthday for your 500 eme, well

Congratulations on this multiple anniversary! Nice shot with interesting colours with this red dominance. very interesting to see older view on the same place but so different (sad 1945...). Have a nice day.

Mowiac szczerze, nie pociagaja mnie takie puste architektoniczne ujecia, jak bardzo by nie byly zabytkowe itd. Jestem raczej zwolennikiem twoich impresji pieknych i naladowanych emocjami. Tutaj podoba mi sie swiatlo i jakosc zdjecia, gratuluje przesiadki na D70, sam o tym mysle...
I gratuluje potrojnego jubileuszu.
Paolo (41222) 2006-09-19 3:56
Hi Alek, a really beautiful one for that combinnation of numbers!
excellent perspective view, really colorful and full of light!
a beautiful urban landscape unusually empty of people.
congratulation, thanks, ciao
Dragonheart (8414) 2006-09-19 4:46
Good compo with some beautiful lights. Good details and sharpness. But for me the colours of the houses and architecture is most effective here.
Thanks for sharing
pablominto (53744) 2006-09-19 4:48
Your production of quality images is indeed impressive! Congrats on all, not the least on the D70..!
This street scenery is well framed, and captured with colours typical of this brand...
Good details in the architecture, a well composed presentation!
atus (15838) 2006-09-19 6:55
congratulations for all of yours achievements! Your "numbers" are really impressive.
Very nice 1st shot here with your Nikon D70. The harsh light is very well managed and the colours are vivid and very well saturated. Great dof and excellent diagonal perspective. Even if I bought a D200 some months ago, I'm still using only the D70. Hope You will like it, too.
jlynx (12645) 2006-09-19 7:47
Dla mnie to długa jeszcze droga do tak pięknej liczby. Przyjmij moje gratulacje z okazji podwójnego jubileuszu oraz z okazji wspaniałej inauguracji sprzętowej. Tym zdjeciem udowodniłeś, że dobrze zainwestowałeś w swój talent, który do tej pory pomagał Tobie w wypełnianiu Twego portfolio szeregiem wspaniałych prac. Dziś pieknie odrestaurowany fragment miasta we wspaniałych kolorach i bardzo ładnej ostrości.

to juz masz 500!!!
Moje gartulacje. Ladna fotka to uczciles.

Angshu (56060) 2006-09-19 23:28
Impressive numbers you've got...Fantastic first shot witha D70. The colours are beautiful...checking your WS I think nothing much has changed in the last 100 years & the rebuilding has been done in the mould of the century old scene. Excellent photograph+WS
feather (51130) 2006-09-20 3:39
I'm sorry I missed your 500th post yesterday and didn't you arrange things well for it to co-incide with your 400th from Poland. That is an incredible milestones - Congratulations.
I enjoyed looking at the old photos and couldn't help but be saddened by the devastation from WWII. However, comparing the modern day photo with that of 1906, it looks like they have tried to faithfully restore the town as close as possible to the way it was. The light on your photo is beautiful and the blue sky is a perfect background for the architecture.
I see you are the proud owner of a D70. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
riclopes (35577) 2006-09-20 4:30
Olá Aleksander, I wanted to congratulate you for this special post, with so many important numbers. The complementar shots in WS, are absolutely delicious. Exactely the same POV, after and before. I loved it!
Stepan (27210) 2006-09-20 13:59
Happy birthdays !! I'm already looking forward to discovering how you'll use the Nikon. It'a a little overexposed here, but colors and perspective are strong, which is OK here.
faubry (35405) 2006-09-22 4:59
hello Aleksander, very beautiful town! bravo for 500 post... and i like you will a lot enjoy with your D70...

Congratulations on your 500th post, Aleksander. This is a great shot to celebrate so long on TE. It is well composed and you have resisted the temptation to over-saturate it as the colours look very natural. The pictures you have posted to the WS are fascinating. Cheers . . . David
sergio1 (12152) 2006-11-23 5:53
