Hi Gert. Odd thing;when I saw the thumbnail I thought- a blast from the past. It is the colour or the subtle use of it which reminded me of an old national geographic illustration.It is a lovely shot, a lesson to all those who kill reality with buckets of saturated colours. Regards. Klaudio.

From the thumbnail and without checking the destination this looked to be a posting by your brother - the red flower bed probably swayed my thoughts! Informative daily life scene. A balanced composition and as already noted quite natural colours. Tfs, Marlene

Your composition is great here using the foreground flowerbed to create a colorful border for the shot. The lighting and colors are natural and nice. The people add life as well as a sense of scale.

I like very much postcards and this is a very pretty one. I like the beautiful colorful architecture and a nice street scene. I would consider using a noise filter it would smooth out the sky.
Have a nice evening,

A very fine capture of daily life. I like the way you have included somne beautiful architecture, with red roofs that matches the red flowers in the foreground. In between we see some ordinary daily activities. A very fine TE contribution!

Romanian architecture has a bit of English in it ? - rather victorian ?
nice inclusion of the bed of roses..a simple slice of daily life..

A nice composition constituting the foreground and background. Nice flowers on the foreground make it very appealing to eyes the detailed architecture in the background. Nicely saturated colors and exposure is brilliant.
Thanks for your wishes.

An attractive cityscape, which shows beautiful architecture, people walking in their daily life and the lovely red flower bed, all in a pleasant composition. Good natural colours and perfect clarity. TFS!

Lovely FG you created with the bright coloured flower bed. The building with fine architecture stands out against the darkish sky. Thanks for introducing to me this place, which is new to me. Good work!

I went through some of your older shots, you have many many countries on your list! hard to pick just one.
I love these eastern block european countries!
great to see a new scene like this one - at least from my eyes.
reading your note, I had no idea Hungarians are a popular staple in Romania...goes to show how much i know!
great read, great shot of the inner city, activity, and architecture.
