This big forehead was captured in The Small Square from Sibiu.
As its name says, the Piaţă Mică (Small Square) is smaller in size, being rather longer than wide. Its north-west side has a curved shape, unlike the Grand Square, which has an approximately rectangular shape. Accordingly, Piaţă Mică plays a smaller part in the city's present-day life.
The square is connected to the other two squares and to other streets by small, narrow passages. The main access from the Lower City is through Ocnei Street, which divides the square in two. The street passes under the Liar's Bridge - the first bridge in Romania to have been cast in iron (1859).
To the right of the bridge is another symbol of the city, The House of the Arts, an arched building formerly belonging to the Butchers' Guild. On the left side of the bridge is the Luxemburg House, a Baroque four-storey building, former seat of the Goldsmiths' Guild.

Yes, big forehead.. but most of all excellent and careful framing. These windows look straight into our eyes.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Tu as su ressortit l'important de ce toit et le cadrer en nous montrant un visage.
dipsybee (296) 2011-04-11 5:51
This is an effective shot, well spotted. Very unusual.
eversmile (11628) 2011-04-11 7:32
Strange, well seen, very well framed, this graphical composition is mesmerizing. I wonder if its funny aspect is also as much apparent as here on the full view of the house?
baclama (16905) 2011-04-11 7:37
des yeux dejà vus ici mais ce cadrage fait toute la difference!
BennyV (13398) 2011-04-11 11:11
First time I saw these windows was on this very sight, and they still make a great subject for photography. The heavy black frame is OK, the picture itself superb, but I do wonder why you didn't center the eyes - there's more space to the left than to the right - was this done on purpose?
Bluejeans (64247) 2011-04-11 11:17
Ola Daniel ,
Fantásticas as janelas neste telhado parecem mesmo dois olhos , belo efeito visual , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

alabate (1197) 2011-04-14 14:43
C'est dans la simplicité, voir le minimalisme, que l'on retrouve l'essence de la beauté.
Extrêmement original, superbe coup d’œil (sans jeu de mot).
Bravo et excellente journée.
Didi (53453) 2011-04-16 9:10

It's a very appreciable picture.

kmangwani (338) 2011-06-16 6:38
Great presentation of perhaps a simple object. You had the eye for such an idea, the eyes have a little twinkle in them...dont know whether anyone else notices.
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4748) 2011-06-19 22:01

archimatica (20236) 2011-08-08 6:21
A great creative invention, the basis for an advertisement professional, or just a nice photo.

lakshmip1949 (19110) 2011-09-02 3:23
A very creative image with the windows looking straight into the camera. Love the way it has been framed in the shape of a forehead with the eyes. Great graphic effect.
tomekpy (74) 2011-09-16 9:10
when I look at it longer I start to think it's a person , not a building :) original
avigur_11 (22033) 2011-09-30 0:46
A great capture. I wonder if the architect realy thought about this.
See also this one..
elkab (4949) 2011-10-15 6:29

Este o poza absolut perfecta! Incadrarea face apropae totul dar si culorile si claritatea isi aduc contributia. O poza cum mi ar fi placut si mie sa fac!
gmg (4202) 2012-01-16 9:12
This was very well viewed and photographed!
It rerally looks like two eyes in a huge forehead!
Very well done
PaulVDV (19399) 2012-01-29 2:52
These windows are a pleasant memory for me of my visit of Romania.
There I've seen a lot of these windows and they always attracted me.
I like this composition, the big black frame around the red roof and the funny title.
Best regards, Paul
chanteuse (210) 2012-02-19 6:50
Great eye (pun not intended), great sense of humor! This is irresistible and now I have to go find a larger view of this square. Bravo!

some more points for these beautiful eyes. Very nice graphical capture.
westcoastgirl1 (660) 2012-08-20 9:05
Thanks for this super sweet post. Because of this site and Craig (macjake) I am now looking for these faces when I travel. Good idea for showing it without the typical smiling mouth. It makes me smile.
kasianowak (4126) 2012-12-16 0:49
This is fantastic! I love the idea. You look at the world and see things others can't see and turn them into great photographs.
livermore (1629) 2012-12-20 13:01
Je trouve vraiment cette photo très interessante,
De la façon dont tu as cadré, on dirait tout à fait des yeux.
Bravo pour ton oeil de photographe averti.
marina7 (8035) 2013-04-19 8:51
funny capture, very original. I like its perfect minimalism and contrasty colors. Amazing picture and framing. Thanks and best wishes
maloutim (9621) 2013-04-29 6:35
Lovely graphic photograph of what I suppose are two little dormer windows at the bottom of a tiled roof. They really look like winking eyes.
Great management of sharpness and colours on the tiles.
Appropriate black frame.
KristinsCamera (2373) 2013-07-01 20:00
super charming, and yet so simple ~
i like it very much, it has a mischievous personality :)
and, of course, the title makes it.
really well done, daniel ~
Rafer (14837) 2013-07-20 3:59
Oh La La ¡¡¡ fantastic¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ Greetins Daniel
imageme (1096) 2013-11-15 13:53
Hi Daniel, This is awesome image with excellent creativity. These windows are eyes looking into you. The orange construction building goes so well with the black frame around it. Super
Noel_Byrne (17397) 2014-01-15 1:38
This is a really surreal image, and composing it the way you was a visionary piece of photography. It reminds me for some reason of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum from Alice in Wonderland, probably the giant orange forehead!
Inspiring shot, shows me that fascinating results can be found in so many unlikely places.
All the best
