Ecaterina's Gate was built in 1559 for defensive purposes. It is the only original city gate to have survived from medieval times. In fact the fairy-tale looking tower is only a part of the original gate; documents talk about the existence of a wooden structure which was demolished in 1827. The original structure can be seen at he Weaver's Bastion where the large model of Brasov in 1600 is displayed. (brasovtravelguide.ro)

si torna a vedere Brasov e le sue belle architetture integrate in un paesaggio ricco di boschi e di colore.
Molto bello in questa foto il contrasto tra il bianco dell'edificio e l'azzurro intenso del cielo.
Forse qualche ombra di troppo poteva essere schiarita in postproduzione, ma il risultato rimane in ogni caso ricco di fascino.
Cioao e buona serata

Very nice composition in this photo of the old medieval gate in Brasov. Low POV allows us to see the beautiful roof structure against a fantastic blue sky. Nice clarity and enriched colours. Very nice job.

Amazing old architecture! The most attractive is the blue of the sky with the some windy clouds.

For me the most attractive part of the picture is the play of shadows & light! But that's not to say the turrets of the gates, which are lovely as well architecturally against the blue of the sky! Nice work

A nice presentation of this gate with it's interesting architecture. The framing with the trees is well done and the light has been well managed in this mix of light and shadow. The blue sky adds to the composition.
