The Brasov Council Square (Piaţa Sfatului in Romanian, former Marktplatz in German) obtained its right to held markets in 1520, but it has been the place for annual markets since 1364 being visited by merchants from the country and abroad. The houses surrounding the square speak of a rich history. A pillory, in the middle of the square, was used as a means for public humiliation, punishment and scorn. Witches were also punished here, but the head of the shoemaker guild, Stefan Stenert, who opposed the entry of the Austrian army into Braşov, was also beheaded here in 1688. Till 1892 there were two wells in the square. The most important building in the square is the Council House, which was built in 1420 and is located in the middle of the square. (wikipedia)

J'aime beaucoup cette photo à l'heure bleue qui apporte toute une atmosphère à l'ensemble. J'aime ces lumières éparses qui tapissent l'ensemble.

This winter scene looks extremely beautiful during the blue hour! Love the saturation effect you have achieved and good light management of the shot. Well done and cropped. TFS.

C'est un endroit superbe, et la lumière est particulièrement belle. L'heure bleue lui fait honneur.
Bon dimanche et Joyeuses Pâques

Excellent shot, I love the mood you have captured here. the blue hour with some light remained but the city light is already on, the benefit of both. The snowy foreground and winter condition is well depicted, it give the cold mood but the light are warm and inviting. I can imagine walking in the cold street and into the warm cafe for a cup of warm coffee. Excellent photo with good composition and mood.

I really like this your picture taken in a particular hour of the day that gave you this special color. Very beautiful details and the street lamps with their lights adorn the entire square. Congratulations for the good work and sharing.
The best greetings, have a nice day ... Marino
