A classic view, that I got to know through pictures on this site. Your narrow crop makes this a great personal alternative version on the theme. And the lamp post adds a touch of humour to it...or is that just in my mind?
jester5 (1968) 2012-02-24 1:47
A fun take on a classic.Well done Daniel.Nice composition and colours too.

Amazing roof and windows
Really looks like the eyes of Buddha on a Stupa in the Katmandu valley !
Nice light and colors
have a nice WE

Hello Daniel - A great crop on this familiar building. The detail in the tiles is excellent and the 'eyes' look even more like eyes here. I love the addition of the swinging lamp. Lovely job. Warm regards Rosemary
sevy (15357) 2012-02-24 1:51
If I am not wrong this shot is a variation of an other one you did in a vertical frame?
Whatever still a very nice and funny subject. I think I prefer the previous one, but a matter of personnal taste.
ChrisJ (95100) 2012-02-24 2:02
I like these ancient Egyptian style of eyes formed by the 2 windows in the red roof. The wide angled crop suits this image. Good sharpness & excellent color saturation & framing. Have a nice weekend!
Royaldevon (27515) 2012-02-24 2:27
A great sense of humour shared, generously with TE members! I just love how you have seen the face and cropped accordingly. It is sharp, well saturated and the pp works fine.
Have a good day,
holmertz (38607) 2012-02-24 2:43
I don't really see any people here, but I see a pair of strange eyes with a lamp hanging just above the nose. These windows are fascinating and amusing and can provide some very attractive pictures. The patches of lighter colour among the bricks make me think of the battered skin of a strange and probably dangerous animal.
Well taken, have a nice weekend.

Quel beau regard!!!
Très bonne idée d'avoir choisi ce format,l'impact visuel est très fort.

taglio stretto ,tonalità forte e perfetto inserimento della lampada tra i due occhi.
Buona la qualità dell'immagine,
jlbrthnn (79791) 2012-02-24 4:09
The picture is very cleverly composed, and of course, these "eyes" are amazing. The quality is excellent. Very nice presentation. Bravo.
Have a nice day
lousat (73903) 2012-02-24 4:19
HI Daniel,fantastic idea,one of your best,this roof is perfect to be transformed in a face,in the gallery seems really to see 2 eyes..ehehe...great great realisation whit spectacular light balance and the usual perfect sharpness.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano.
josepmarin (57623) 2012-02-24 4:25
when we see the miniature of this photo, we have the impression of seeing a few mysterious eyes, with a very incisive look.
But when we open the photo we notice that it is a roof with a few small windows of the garrets, though indeed they look like a few eyes. With this good framing you have created a powerful and very graphical image, adding a good contrast with the incorporation of the lamppost.
I like the textures of the tiles that we can see clearly because of the great sharpness of the photo.
A splendid work!

Cricri (103015) 2012-02-24 9:58
Je me rappelle d'une autre version, ici une cadrage bien serré sur les deux fenêtres en forme de yeux, c'est assez original, bon détails des pierres et des couleurs
jjcordier (74512) 2012-02-24 10:13
Ce "regard" est vraiment impressionnant et ta photo d'une grande beauté.

interesting roof, good compo and frame.
Waylim (25172) 2012-02-24 10:57
Funny, it really feel like someone is watching me through these eye. Excellent POV, the lamp is perfectly situated for a nice off center composition. Good details and texture of the tile roof, rustic but charming.
lpi (4857) 2012-02-24 11:38
Joli cadrage! et bel effet!
Bien vu !
Budapestman (82620) 2012-02-24 12:33
a lovely architectural impression and I like the funny details and the composition, Tfs! Have a nice weekend! Kellemes hétvégét kívánok!
polpo56 (15134) 2012-02-24 13:43
you had a good glance. The two windows (eyes) on the roof form, with the lamppost in the foreground (the nose), a human face. Very beautiful, even the texture of the tiles.
Have a nice Weekend.
delpeoples (52773) 2012-02-24 18:46
Hello dear Daniel
So are there any Australians living in Sibiu? :)
Excellent panoramic cut, and of course an interesting subject, superbly photographed.
emka (75045) 2012-02-24 23:55
Hi Daniel, Amazing eyes of Sibiu. Very classic shot but always attractive. beautiful view.

Good one Daniel - a great little snippet of local architecture.
PaulVDV (21127) 2012-02-25 2:14
Excellent interpretation of the well-known roof windows that look like eyes. Now I see also a nose :)
Very beautiful are the different colours of the tiles.
Best regards, Paul
sacimar (25975) 2012-02-25 2:24
this is an excellent image, it's a smart composition and the visual result is fantastic, these eyes are well captured,
Have a good weekend,
macjake (54000) 2012-02-25 4:37
haha, more 'eyes'
and this time we have a hint of a nose.
effective use of the small crop and composition.
excellent lighting too which makes it come alive.
barrufeto_77 (28884) 2012-02-25 8:56
Well, well seen!! The effect of this "two eyes" is impressive.
siudzi (32829) 2012-02-25 9:49
Bravo Daniel! You have discovered an amazing view! Impressive composition and its quality. Many thanks for sharing.
CLODO (29730) 2012-02-25 10:06
Splendid portrait of a roof with a lamp for the nose.
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2012-02-25 19:01
The eye shaped windows and the lamp in the middle looks like a jewel on the forehead. Looks like the forehead has been peeled with different shade of the bricks.Very humorous shot with colors and sharpness.
berek (35400) 2012-02-25 22:26
Great idea and magnificent result. I like balanced composition. Congratulations.
Have a nice Sunday.

Intr-adevar, okii astia poti fi considerati atractii turistice alaturi de Piata Mare, Catedrala Evanghelica samd. Foarte bine incadrat, ai prins si felinarul.
JFS (32459) 2012-02-26 23:11
The famous roof but this time with a different look. Good imagination Daniel, it seems it is looking at me....Good sharpness too.
Have a good week!
Angshu (55035) 2012-02-28 6:07
I am amazed by these roofs with the windows like eyes. I've seen many pictures from Europe like this & am intrigued. A fine picture & a good relevant note to accompany
sacavem (18610) 2012-03-03 11:25
Excellent point of view and excellent sharpening,too. Colours are interesting great pov and shot, good work!

A classic and creative capture of this building, with great colours. Very well done.
kiks (11749) 2012-04-03 10:12
This roofs with the little windows are so fantastic!! I love the effect of twoo eyes here,
kabel (1615) 2012-12-06 7:07
Hello, excellent crop and composition. What the eye and the mind see can be very strange indeed. It looks like a pair of eyes and a nose with a twist of humor to go along with it. Very clever and intriguing.
kasianowak (5468) 2012-12-16 0:52
Another one! Well seen and composed. Great colours too.
Have a nice Sunday.
olive224 (2719) 2013-01-26 10:19

very well reframed to keep the essential
Very well done ;)
ruisc_pt (10525) 2013-05-19 11:43
What a fantastic roof :)
Simply great. well done
maloutim (9633) 2013-05-28 19:36
Another lovely roof from Sibiu. Again, the dormo windows look like winking eyes, and the lamp like the nose :-)
I love the texture with the different colours of the old tiles and the lighter patches where the tiles have been replaced. It gives it a look of weathered roof and makes it picturesque.
PS. Interested to learn, in your discussion with Sevy, that it's a Saxon kind of roof !
adidas5nb (4630) 2013-05-28 21:07
lovely caught.really nicely seen.love the abstractness you have produced.it looks like the eyes of budhdha on budhdhist structures.really like the pattern,and the worn n torn on the wall.
