A street in Cluj Napoca, central Romania, on a recent Sunday. After a sunny morning a thunder-storm was gathering strength, and soon a few loud bangs of thunder were heard. In a workshop I will show what the city centre looked like about an hour after this photo.

Hello Gert ,
The approaching storm provides splendid colors anf great contrasts with the dark sky . A colorful picture , with an excellent perspective towards the fine green church tower Even the power lines are rather esthetical ! I like the contrast , too , between the brand new Puegeot 307 in the right , and the oldest cars in the left .
Very interesting .

Very deep and well saturated colours, and indeed a lot of them, red cars green trees yellow houses and a green church spire. And of course the fine sky! Even all the cables contribute in the composition here. But the WS is not bad either, you could have saved it for a separate upload...

Hi Gert. Romania is an interesting destination. Maybe I will visit this country next year. Your photo gives a good insight. Everything looks a little backward and colorful. Well done. Worth seeing. Regards, Wolfgang.

A wonderful contrast between the sunlit foreground and the dark clouds looming behind - beautiful light on the street. The vibrant colors add to the life of the scene. I like the title very much too!

Hi Gert, We had some storm but until now we were in the hotel or in the car during them. Only today it was raining all the day. I used my umbrella and walked in Sibiu. Tomorrow I go to Sighisoara, I hope ther rain will stop. And then I also go to Cluj, the last Roman town in my trip. Despite the time before storm the photo is very colourful. Great perspectives, I like WS also, specially with the splashing water.

Good shot of this narrow street with the storm approaching. I wonder what will happen when the trees grow through the powerlines! I lik ethe workshop, reminds me of a storm in Thailand where I got stuck in a similar situation.

Boa noite Gert
I see that the cars can park in the sidewalk. Maybe because the street is narrow. I like the green tower in background. I like to see the WS, after the storm. I like storms when I'm at home.

Bright and wonderful color contrast against the dark sky. A beautiful shot of a wonderful moment in this city of Transsylvania.
Many regards my friend !

Les couleurs, avant l'orage, sont superbes. Belle photo.

Heavy cloud before the storm and rain can always produce such a dramatic image which is one of my fav subject, but sometimes mother nature can be quiet tricky and very unpredictable. u have two good combination of lighting cond, the nicely lit foreground and dark sky, the end result is fantastic really. Vibrant colors especially the red car and the trees and the church in the background. Very creative pov in this format with lot of detail, shades and shadows to enjoy. Congrats, well done and thks for sharing

Although the reds here at first view appear almost too saturated (in the Canon red way), the red cars are just lovely eye-catchers in this shot, which has both a good POV and a composition including many interesting details. The light is superb and I think its augmented by the dramatic sky. Thanks for the good and interesting WS too.

Greetings from Yekaterinburg, the capital of Ural!
This is the interesting picturesque composition. But do you imagine this view without the wires and cars? It could be perfect historical topic ))
All the best wishes,
