Last photo from my short trip to Bratislava. I'm already looking forward to come back. Nice place to visit.
I've taken this photo from the square in front of presidential palace (right side) with the view to the famous castle.

mi piace questo pov, la parte moderna è ricca di architetture lineari e il contrasto con l'antico castello è evidente.
Ottimo l'inserimento dei ciclisti, danno un tocco dinamico alla composizione.

Never been there, Miro, and surprisingly the city looks very modern style built.
Only the palace atop oh the far hill is an indication of 19th century architecture's.
The three bikes riders gave a fine dynamic scale.
Nice taken with good clarity and colors in contrast and texture.
Have a nice week ahead,

This happy image probably means alot to you that evokes some wonderful memories of this place. Lovely how the red colour plays the greatest part that catches the eyes into the secene, a well oriented this way and the surroundings obviously a feature that has really worked here for the shot both draw attention which don't let loose. Credit too to your quick reflexes so well taken and presented in a superb manner. Congrats

Greatly appreciate your comments, thank you! What a great scene to match the title for this image. The bikers heading away from you in the opposite direction play right into the sentiment expressed. :) This looks to be quite a modern city, or at least this particular district...not something I would have expected from here. I really need to get to some off these places that are more untraditional.
Whether or not it was consciously composed this way, I really like the fact that there's so much of the squares pavement visible...its relatively simple pattern grabbed my attention immediately. I think that in conjunction with this angle it aids in the depth, helping to take the eye all the way to the formidable building on the hill top background, while still showing the modern buildings surrounding the square itself. Thanks for providing this view. Hope you're having a good weekend. Take care.

Lovely view of the city, with a fine mix of old and new architecture to delight the senses. The fact that the square is deserted but for the people on the bikes really makes this fine scene a unique one.
All the best

Hi Miro, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting city postcard, nicely captured in this beautiful picture with very good sharpness, depth, nice light and color. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
All the best from southern Spain.

questa tua foto è caratterizzata da una piacevole composizione nella quale l'attenzione si concentra sui tre ciclisti per poi dirigersi sul castello che domina dall'alto l'ambiente.
Una composizione caratterizzata da varie linee e disegni anche se la leggibilità complessiva appare leggermente sacrificata probabilmente per via di una illuminazione troppo forte.
Ma, si sa, non sempre è possibile trovarsi in un certo luogo con la luce migliore, sopreattutto quando si è lontano dalla propria città.
In ogni caso una bella ripresa, assai originale, di quella che è una città assai interessante.
Ciao e buona giornata

interesting view of modern houses in Bratislava and old castle up. Nice place with the fountain. Good shot and presentation.
Have a nice evening.

You have found a very good place to show Bratislava's architectural concept and its daily life. The nice pavement and colorful cyclists are excellent additions for this well-balanced composition. Perfectly good presentation of the central part of Slovakia's capital city!

Good pov and good frame to show a city that full with old and new architectures, good capture to the bicycling people too, good perspective, fantastic color tone that look like through a yellow filter, distinct photo, good shoot.

Interesting scene of this place with a good lights direction.
Nice deep foreground

This is not really how I imagined Bratislava, but I guess there are older parts that look more traditional. It looks quite pleasant anyway, and you have taken a very good photo from this modern area. The composition and the treatment make it look like a postcard from a few decades ago, even the cyclists in pink fit the postcard style very well, and so does the castle on the distant hill. This is a very well presented picture.

The mostly-brownish colors on modern buildings and plaza pavement give a first impression of an adobe town as those seen in Morocco desert.
The three eye-catchers on wheels give a sense of depth to the being-renovated plaza crowned of lovely skies that put on thier nicest getup for waving a farewell signal before you left!
macjake (58992) 2013-09-03 17:25
I really like what you have done with this photo, how its set up with the bikers leaving the scene - as if to say goodbye.
and of course having the castle at the top is the icing on the cake.
even the ground pattern is a smart addition.
jhm (142067) 2013-09-04 3:07
Your large picture gives perfect the details of the market and buildings.
The three bikers are real very well addition, this bring more live to the picture.
Also the modern buildings and light cloudy sky are pleasant to look at.
I like your composition, splendid presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

You're capturing well this cityscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the peaceful city with both of modern and old. It looks like the cityscape with a good balance. It's also so beautiful and elegant for the castle in just center. And, riders in the square draw out an additional good effect in this image.
danos (88923) 2013-09-04 7:24
excellent the panoramic view of the square with the castle on the backdrop to dominating the place.The three colourful cyclists complete the whole scenery with the brilliant light to enhance the vivid colours of the image.
pierrefonds (58810) 2013-09-04 17:41
The distance between the cyclits and the buildings is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the buildings. The light has a good effect on the colours. Have a nice day.

Bravo et amitié
ourania (34525) 2013-09-09 11:46
a fine and interesting, deep and clear view of the square, of the adjacent modern buildings and the colourful palace rising above all. I like very much your composition and the inclusion of the cyclists who - apart from interest and colour- also contribute a useful and delightful perspective. A very pleasant and peaceful view that makes me want to go ahead and explore this charming city. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

I've never been to Slovakia, but this seems a modern city! You captured the moment very well, with the three bikers with the colourful t-shirts so well placed in the frame. It was also a good idea to include the castle in background.
gervaso (10925) 2013-09-18 19:48
Interesting marks on the ground that make a nice graphical effect and give depth to the image! Very good colors too! Beautiful composition!
mcmtanyel (15011) 2013-10-29 19:29
Great photo with lively colors and excellent DOF. However, its main strength is the perspective provided by the wall, buildings and the patterns on the ground which suggests a forward motion for these cyclists. Excellent rendering!
Cricri (109809) 2013-11-08 11:32
Une belle grande place entourer d'intéressante architectures, la vue sur le château aux toit rouge, la fontaine, les personnes se promenant a pieds et a vélo, bonne lumière et touche de couleurs des t-shirts des cycliste
