hi daniel. sibiu would be a definite destination if i ever visited romania. i've seen such colorful and beautiful architecture photos from there, this one is also a good detail from the roofs.

IMO,here the frame did a vast portion of job on making this photo so attractive.The colors are well saturated with very good control of light.if we follow any entity that have a repeat of minimum 2 times with an offset.well sharpped that the details are having good clarity.
Thanks for sharing.
Happy new year!

J'aime beaucoup le format de cette photo ainsi que le large cadrage autour du toit tout rouge. L'ensemble est d'un beau graphisme avec de belles couleurs franches.

A very good crop of this dormer window with nice saturated colours and a beautiful attractive and artistic result. A pleasure to see that kind of shot on TE. Well spotted.
timecapturer (40144) 2014-01-03 5:39
a shot that is simple in concept but made up of complex repetitive patterns that are both attractive and beautifully sharp. A perfect crop and composition make this work superbly.
Happy 2014 and enjoy the first weekend of the New Year - B.

Salut Daniel, imi place cum ai detailat aici. Sibiu este de vis, insa in ultimile zile ale lui 2013 am redescoperit Brasovul si pot spune ca nush care imi place mai mult in acest moment. Imi plac culorile aprinse.

The beauty of the simplicity !

a very creative shot, looks like a picture inside a picture. The bold colors are so eye-catching. Great sharpness and framing too.
Have a great start to the New year!

bel particolare, i colori accesi e le forme attirano l'attenzione dell'osservatore.
Elegante il fregio sopra la finestra, si staglia molto bene sul fondo di tegole.

Superbe le cadrage, le contraste des couleurs, les détails et l'encadrement noir qui met le tout en valeur, excellent

C'est une très jolie fenêtre, très colorée et présentant de beaux détails architecturaux. J'apprécie particulièrement les bardeaux rouges du toit. Vous avez l'il pour les belles fenêtres.

Très beau cadrage de cette superbe lucarne de toit de Sibiu.
SWEETFREEDOM (20552) 2014-01-03 23:46
good crop, very nice frame and contrast of colors.
Romano46 (14444) 2014-01-04 3:03
il tuo senso artistico ti ha permesso di cogliere un dettaglio di straordinaria belklezza e di inserirlo in una cornice che lo valorizza e lo propone nella migliore delle maniere.
Semplicità di forme e colore sono le sue peculiarità che si associano ad un contrasto ed una luminosità ottimali.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

I really wanted to get to your newest post today, but there's an easy reason why this photo is hard to resist. Its just the overall colors and subject - it's like a bullseye, asking to be viewed, seeking attention.
sevy (14873) 2014-01-07 1:16
You start to have a nice collection of such photos with close-up of windows on roofs.
I like the graphism and colors. It is even increased by the black frame you put around.
krzychu30 (14332) 2014-01-07 2:14
both the graphical and visual effect you achieved here are stunning!
Very expressive and eye-catching shot!
Also the way you framed and close-up the scene appeals to me much.
Have a nice day
trevormoffiet (1796) 2014-01-08 16:38
I like this very much. The rich colours and tight cropping are similar in style to the first three of your featured images which I also like very much.
Noel_Byrne (16131) 2014-01-09 0:50
this is a beautiful presentation, the blue and red colors of this finely detailed architectural feature alone are great, but your choice to surround it with the black frame is perfect and really enhances the overall effect. Really nicely done.
adores (32112) 2014-01-14 15:24
Beautiful composition! The colours and the window are fabulous. I've seen beautiful photos of this kind of Romanian windows and you got a good one.
COSTANTINO (46396) 2014-01-15 22:02

I liked this dynamic contrast between black
and red with interesting decorative details
the colors are well saturated
Gigidusud (11585) 2014-01-19 10:07
Excellent framing of this beautiful window with great détails and nice colors. I like it!
