Hello Gert! Superb scene, wonderful pair, excellent scenery, original shadowlay, mysterious effect. Good sharpness. Good luck!

I would prefer heavy downfall and puddles of water everywhere around! LOL
Where do you manage to find such curious, unique views?? :) What a combination of closed windows and door!
Imho, there are only 2 ways: either you happen to see them purely by chance while accidentally passing by; or you travel about the place intentionally looking for something "exotic" :) I guess in your case it's the 1st variant?
watm greetings from smoky city!

Hi Gert. Here you have captured a beautiful scene. The couple enjoys the evening and the sun's last rays. In the Balkans, the more life is playing out of the houses ab.Man meet for tea, palaver, playing cards, etc. I like your photo very much. Regards, Wolfgang.

Their attention really seems to be drawn by something on this sunny afternoon further down the street. Great details, like the old wall and metal door and windows, and the signage, the bits of graffiti.

You should indeed get lost more often:) Here is a good proof of the value of getting lost! I like the way you have placed the four "posts" (or whatever they are called in English) in a very symmetrical line along the picture. They create a certain stability to the composition. I wonder what the two persons are looking at, at least they are not bothered by your presence or your camera, they just sit here like they were paid to be your models. The basic colours of doors etc. versus the wall are very harmonic too. Nice title (and a good song)!

Funny and well-spotted scene. I really like the inclusion of the door and the windows and the postitioning of the couple that has caught sight of something very interesting. Excellent lighting. TFS and have a nice weekend!

I like the pleasing raphical quality to this one. ice light and details.If I were to be picky I would wish that the couple were looking into the frame. However, I realise that you can't be choosy when shooting from the hip in this way.

a superb daily life photo with attractive composition and graphic details, excellent lights and sharpness, Tfs! Have a nice Sunday evening! Kellemes vasárnap estét kívánok!

An interesting scene of an interesting place! The people looking outside the left frame give the photo an emptiness - just filled by the graphic elements of windows and doors. Excellent shot!

i think what makes this photo so great are the 4 short protective posts in the FG.
with the people looking over like that, it makes me wonder what they're watching.
nice textured photo

Hi Gert, lazy sunny afternoon, they are sitting on the steps, doing nothing, even talking. It happens rarely to me.
It is interesting that we visited the same places (not in Bucuresti, we didn't go there) and see in our cameras quite different things.

It looks like just a simple scene, but actually a cleverly composed image taking advantage of the nice light and simple toning.
jhm (135238) 2010-08-09 2:00
Romania, a very great contrasting against our countries.
A lot people out of Romania try to come in our country, when we see this image can them understand.
This is very well reporting of you Gert.
Nice captured and composed.
Very well done, TFS

I once again have to tell that I have a certain weakness for this kind of compositions
those dull pink colors agaist the red doors and windows and the way the couple looking out through the image makes it very interesting
boa (5698) 2010-08-09 12:36
sunny afternoons are lovely in many ways, in this photo I see two examples of it. Two relaxed people enjoying the sun. It is also good opportunities to take good photos. I like the atmosphere here and to see daily life from the street, Tfs !
Ha en trevlig kväll.
papera (13916) 2010-08-10 15:06
this photo has each element in the right place and so neatly distributed, that it almost looks staged :)
the four posts, the four doors/windows, the two persons in the same posture... there's symmetry, geometry and the odd human element to complement the composition.
the shadows and the couple point into the same direction - I wonder what's outside of the picture?? :)
Angshu (54745) 2010-08-12 9:46
The off-centre framing is good & love the red windows & doors against the pink wall. That the couple is wearing contrast coloured clothes makes this interesting as they look out of the frame. You've framed (well, half-framed) them well with the metal stumps

Good dayly life scene, very beautiful lighht and colours and a good momet stopped by your camera...I like specially the pleasant and peaceful feeling...
Have a nice day...
riclopes (35577) 2010-08-14 3:05
Olá Gert, wonderful warm mood, marvellous light and long shadows. I love the many street details in redish tones and of course, the couple. A pitty they are turnning their backs and looking in the opposite way, out of the image...problably nothing you could do about it.
marietom (34607) 2010-08-15 2:05
Nice wall, and nice urabn scene. I like the textures here.
faubry (35405) 2010-10-15 15:39
very good compoaition with decentred people , with ed colors, good diagonale and nice old walls!
abmdsudi (39634) 2011-07-03 6:37
Beautiful street scene, how to kill the time on sunday afternoon. Really well shot! Good viewpoint and nice shadows and side lighting highlighting the textures of the wall, with nice patterns and repetition in saturated contrasting colours. Excellent stuff! The light and fine wall detail make this a winner for me and those couple are icing on the cake. Good observation and well done on a really pleasing capture. Congrats

what an intriguing and mysterious combination of people and setting, I like very much how the viewer is bound to start looking for connections between people and setting as well as between the people themselves. A delightful, teasing, daily life riddle, anything could be used as reference but with doubtful results. I enjoy the constant renovation of the mystery very much, the colours are lovely and the shadows add details. A superb observation, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
