I like the chromatic blue/yellow/white contrast, the lady in her typical dress well placed in your compo
A good description of a daily life street scene
have a nice day

Nice and interesting urban photograph!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, colors, pp, contrasts, horizontal format and composition are all excellent!
This picture reminds me of something a bit funny that happened to me: I was in Liechtenstein and looking for a place I could get my passport stamped! Asking for information, I was told I should look for the big "I" sign! I couldn't find for a while, until I started laughing when I found the big "I"! It was harder than it should because at first I was looking for the "BIG EYE"!
TFS - congratulations!

Hi Gert. Colourful in all respects. She does look a little worried. Interesting details and excellent sharpness. I presume that the lady is Roma, considering the length of her skirt. regards. Klaudio.

Bom dia Gert
A very real scene. I like the patterned skirt of the woman.Excellent photo.

Good one! I thought for a fleeting moment she was crying into her handkerchief. I like the title you chose! My, her skirt is large and colorful, isn't it. Your square-ish crop is very pleasing and the picture is well balanced. Of course, it's the colours that make it so attractive, and the way her clothes reflect the colours of the wall behind her. Well seen.

A very fine colour harmony here. All parts suit well together. There is also a very fine balance between all the items, woman, window, flower-pot, door and sign! This is indeed a very pleasant picture.

this image tells a very interesting story about the contrasts between old and moderns times. This is also a very charming image with great colors and an excellent POV on this well spotted scene. But most of all I like this dress she is wearing. TFS!

One of my favourite motives. Sitting woman against the wall. Superb done.
Regards my dear friend.
abmdsudi (38812) 2010-07-28 8:05

macjake (51348) 2010-07-28 9:31

I was in Infopoint in Sibiu but in another one - on Big SDquare. Nice photo beautifylly composed. The sitting woman in a wide skirt attracts attention. Very carefully made photo, pleasant scene.
Today is my last day in Romania.
marietom (34607) 2010-07-29 2:16
Bine vue, cette scène, elle a l'air d'avoir des soucis, cette personne...
wolf38 (30140) 2010-07-29 4:04
Hi Gert. A picturesque Information Point. Original colors. The pot plant seems a bit thin. The special course, is the traditionally dressed woman on the bench. A good shot. Compliment. Regards, Wolfgang.
mafegan (8624) 2010-07-29 15:46
Well seen and imagined. All the boxes of colours make a balanced composition. The contrast between the traditional floral skirt and the modern 'i' sign is amusing. tfs, Marlene
Cricri (100305) 2010-07-30 10:24
C'est une belle composition, beaucoup de détails et de couleurs différentes et gaie comme la jupe en fleurs de la dame, le cadrage précis et bien réaliser, belle image
faubry (35401) 2010-07-30 14:50
Good evenoing Gert, a wonderful and smart presenttion, superb colors;
sibiu is a nice town
jhm (134440) 2010-07-31 0:32
We are all very modern, mobile phone is almost a must for to have.

Sharpness and clarity are perfect..
Very well done.

Very well spotted and a funny scene. I really enjoy the constrasts the tradionally dressed lady speaking into her mobile phone and the old building with mondern signs. Excellent lighting and clarity. TFS and have a nice Sunday!
rodgerg (55767) 2010-08-01 1:12
Excellent framing to this very well coloued frontage. The door and the window give a very plesaant graphic effect. the lady is very well located in the balance of the composition nad give an interesting element of life.
Have a nice Sunday,

I confirm my statement that you choose such subjects for photos which make them very different from many others (by style and message which photos convey).
This photo also has a story to tell, and when looking at it I am trying to guess a story.
This lady sitting on the bench is a real eyecatcher! her skirt looks like an "exotic" element for the whole scene :)
The framing is excellent - with the juxtaposition of the word "infopoint" and the lady talking on the phone (thus receiving/giving information)
ha en trevlig söndag!
batalay (34575) 2010-08-01 8:36
This is a happy shot, with the woman entirely absorbed in her telephone conversation. The composition, colors and resolution all collaborate to make it memorable piece of photographic art. I will be visiting Neseburg, Romania briefly on August 30. Have you been to the Black Sea Coast of Romania?
Glint (6163) 2010-08-01 10:49
photos with a strong graphical elemt are always appealing to me. Here the bold swatches of colour and strong lines are complmented by the figure of the young woman.
boa (5536) 2010-08-01 11:46
a great shot with contrasts from this interesting country. My first reflection is also the mix of the new modern society and the old traditional culture. A feeling like, hey..somethings wrong here. Fine colors and an excellent observation !
Ha en trevlig kväll.
ps Hoppas att din nattsömn blir bättre nu efter festivalen :) Vi har samma problem hemma hos oss ibland :(

You took an excellent picture of this lady and the infopoint.Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Buin (42256) 2010-08-04 1:12
A wonderful shot - with a skillful and somehow fascinating composition. The combination of the colours nearly is breathtaking ...
Greetings from Germany!
Angshu (54493) 2010-08-08 9:00
Love this one..its so pertinent that the woman is talking on her mobile phone just outside an infopoint office. Great framin & a fine balanced shot!
faraujo (1704) 2010-08-15 3:48
Great colorfull shot.
I like the mix of the T-shirt and the traditional skirt.
Nice shot rich in details a nd a very good compo.
Have a nice Sunday
chrisnet (21088) 2010-11-08 12:21
Good contrast of colors here and well composed with the presence of the woman, a daily life scene very well seen and captured.
annjackman (17505) 2010-11-19 2:09
I came across this one on your gallery and thought this was very well seen. The infopoint making a nice story. THe lady's clothes add interest as does the lovely reflection in the window above. I think that there is a second picture in this where it could be cropped just to the left of the 'i' sign - it would be very graphic but with human interest.
Miguel82 (19336) 2013-07-17 4:27
Simple and beautiful scene from Sibiu center Gert,
I like especially the woman's dress with nice patterns
Vivid colors, clear shot
Have a nice day
ourania (25508) 2014-03-30 6:47
superb framing and layout of information and colours. It's amazing how the architectural and colour patterns look so neat and how the scene feels so original at the same time. It's the lady's presence that makes the difference, although so small in the frame, she balances the composition and adds great interest and meaning to it. The associations among the lady, the sign, the closed door and the vague reflection of the city is irresistible. The colours are natural and very attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
I'd also like to express once again my great appreciation of your kind and encouraging comments!
All the best, have a great day,
CLODO (28578) 2014-03-30 7:02
superb street photogrtaphy, well framed; not sure she gets the right informations, she seems to need some help!
serp2000 (37457) 2014-04-14 20:39
Very nice street composition without excess details. It looks like a special decorated movie scene. She looks like a peasant woman from the past. But with a cell phone. Picturesque eye-catching photo, well done.
Greetings from SoCal!
