This city seem interesting from what I read. How far is this place from the capital city? I will be in Bratislavia in June and would like to visit other places nearby...Good atmosphere presented here. The image is clear and sharp. Thanks.

Always pleasantly impressed by the quality and the care of your shots. Not enough the case on TE nowadays, I feel!
The exposure is perfect in the light and the shadows, the colors are soft and natural
I like that Ivana, Bravo

Une très jolie ruelle dont l'avant plan est malheureusement une peu sombre. Il doit être agréable de se balader dans ces anciennes et charmantes ruelles pavées. Les deux clochers sont étonnants.

Une trés belle image, ce ciel est superbe et contraste bien avec le dome rouge, belle petite lumière sur le mur de coté, et les personnages donnent de la dimension à ton cliché.

I like a lot the rendering of the light in this photo and still keeping details in the shadow.
Moreover, I like the silhouettes in foreground even if I would have prefered to have the couple a bit more on the right (but it is really a minor point).
Very good job on the exposure, really.

Really nice light for this pleasant old town view, the winter atmosphere is very well rendered.

very charming town. The architecture seems to be really unique. I like the light in this photo. It is very difficult: I usually don't take photos in the town in winter because the sun is so low and there is plenty od=f shade and strong contrast, but you have turned it to your advantage. Especially the silhouettes of the people walking there add a lot of interest and dynamics to this shot.
Very attractive work, TFS

I have been here in 2001. When I have seen photos from your gallery I came back to the past. So familiar places and names. Fine shot from Silvester 2009. Nice colours and good details!
