Just one of many painted houses in Luzern.
This is a stitch of 3 photos - not the best, though :( So some shortcomings are easily noticed. Anyway this is the only "full" version of this house which I have.
You can look at the large version here if you want to see the details better :)
The original unedited version looks much worse in terms of awful lens distortion. I did my best to correct it, and I had to crop the bottom of the image a bit.
Actually, initially I did not intend to create a thorough panoramic version (like I did in case with the previously posted panoramic photo of a Metro station in Moscow), otherwise I would have chosen a better POV and took more shots.
But I lacked the time, evening was drawing near, and, if I remember right, we were a bit in a hurry :(... and, as you see, the sky was no longer blue - but pale greyish-white...
Anyway I decided to post this image for the sake of the paintings on the house.

Hej min vän :)
Lovely picture and the house looks beautiful..I just thought if you take away all the paintings it would be just a dull grey house but it looks like a masterpiece with a little touch of an artist. Even the painted balconies make it look more balanced and sophisticated!

These tremendous paintings are really worth showing and are true to the TE spirit. Certain technical shortcomings are of less importance. Still, a bit more contrast and saturation would have been alright.
A curious question: What is the black horizontal line to the left?

Boa tarde Elena
It's a very beautiful house with a nice decoration in the facade.A perfect point of view and a excellent capture. Congratulations.

paintings on the wall are very fine, and those composition and colors are well designed. that artistic idea is wonderful indeed.
here your capturing and stitching are a little like printings of Maurits Cornelis Escher, different vanishing points and warped figure are interesting,
this strange feeling is strangely matching the feeling of those paintings.
and reflections on the windows show another taste.
thank you for your excellent picture,

Certainly a building full of character being beautifully painted to be be very elaborate. The reflections in the bottom windows are interesting. However I found the building to the left and also the glimpse of the building to the right to be distracting. I have done a little workshop which I hope you don't mind. Tfs, Marlene

What an artistic building, I like the mural, but it is more looking like sticking with wallpapers, the glasses are reflecting well the color of blue sky, distinct photo, thanks for shring.

Et tu as bien fait de la poster pour nous faire admirer les belles fresques si bien travaillées!
Elles sont si bien faites qu'on a parfois du mal à réaliser que c'est seulement de la peinture! Par exemple, les colonnes grises, on croirait que ce sont de vrais colonnes! Le relief est très bien représenté!
J'aime aussi les reflets dans les fenêtres, qui se marient bien avec l'ensemble!
J'imagine le travail pour entretenir une telle façade! Mais les Suisses sont des gens industrieux à qui les travaux d'entretien ne font pas peur!
Dommage pour le ciel bien sûr; je l'aurais peut-être coupé au maximum en haut; mais bravo pour le stitch! C'est un art que je ne maîtrise pas malheureusement!
Passe un bon dimanche!
