Another styled façade, typical of Colmar's old town, called "Maison des Têtes". I found this one attractive and of special glowing colors with the afternoon light. Thought it worth a post, inspite of the "washed" grey sky aloft.
This is my last pic. from Colmar, trip of 6/2013.
Location of the old town on the map: 48.762, 7.3584 .

Colmar is a really delightful town and has some lovely old buildings as you show here. I like the framing and the inclusion of the charcuterie sign. Good colours and clarity despite the rather flat lighting.

The tight frame is putting the building in evidence. The point of view is showing with precision the details and the colors of the architecture of the old building. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

We are neighbours, today.
I wish we had control over the sky but, sadly, that is not a possibility. Because the building has this elegant, pointed façade, with statue, you did not have the option of cropping the sky so, you have done all that was possible to give us an excellent, close up of the building. The details are sharp and the colours natural.
Have a great day,

Smartly composed - I love the charcuterie sign that drapes the corner. And the soft light on the building is so effective.
All the best,

I like those old architectures, they are so ornate and stylist unlike the modern ones which are plain and boring. Nice capture of this ancient treasure with good details. Well done, tfs.

Interesting architecture well presented, nice big format, good colors for the wall even the sky is clear, difficult light in the sky.

questa è una delle facciate più belle di Colmar, impossibile resistere al suo fascino, chiunque passa da qui si ferma a fotografarla, me compreso...
Bello l'inserimento dell'insegna nella composizione, che, purtroppo, risente della mancanza di un cielo consono alla facciata.

beautiful snapshot of architecture with beautiful details. Wonderfully executed. Lovely colors, perfect sharpness, clarity. Best regards, Barbara

Very beautiful façade!
Truly attractive picture, with special regards to the colors, vertical format and composition!
TFS - congrats,

This is really a charming facade. I like the double balcony, the well balanced light and its color.
mcmtanyel (22216) 2014-05-06 22:57
Good, clear facade on an overcast day. Although the sky did not cooperate, I think you did a good job overall. The detail on the balconies is super.
danos (97395) 2014-05-06 23:34
very impressive and unique the architectural style of the façade of the building,with the statue on the top of it,to outlined perfect against the sky.I like the excellent details as we can admire the whole façade of it.
kato (11630) 2014-05-07 1:37
You're capturing well this façade by a good angle and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the five storied building with the tasteful design/shape and the sculpture. Especially, it's impressive in decoration of central part fo me. And, the flower in front of window draw out gentle atmosphere. It looks like one of the architecture style in medieval times.
jhm (152164) 2014-05-07 4:24
What a nice facade, a little bit a pity that the gate not is completely, but a this is a small detail.
A lovely picture with wood construction and the fantastic architecture.
Excellent composition, nice colours and perfect presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
lousat (90604) 2014-05-07 4:46
Hi Ike,you know how i like facades pics,and this is truly beautiful,very very spectacular,with a lot of decoration and an original form,very good capture talking about the quality despite the usual cloudy day..ehehe...have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

A stunning composition, with the facade of the famous "House of the Heads," a hard building to capture its orientation to the sun, here with this gray sky you made a good execution.
Very nice colorful tones very effective.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Splendid image. My compliments.
Have a nice day.
All the best.

Intéressante architecture, riche en détails, belle présentation avec l'enseigne, les reflets bleu dans les vitres, belle image
ourania (44938) 2014-05-07 14:13
a very attractive façade with a unique sense of elegance. It combines austere lines with elaborate decorative elements and it also stands out due to its warm tones. Your description is sharp and effective, the arcade and some surrounding elements add more information about the general style and atmosphere of this place. I like the mild contrast provided by the blue tones on the windows. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
jcpix (13916) 2014-05-07 16:56
From all of the pictures I've seen from Colmar, this one is a bit unexpected. The architecture has a hint of Dutch design, I really like the unique appearance this displays, fusing the two styles...or maybe this is common and I'm just uninformed?? :) No matter the case, it's a beautiful building, and presented nicely to showcase its features. You're right about the flat sky, but there's still ample color and detail to be admired, and I like how you've filled some of that negative space with the shop sign hovering into the frame. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
clic (16937) 2014-05-08 15:48
Those fancy decorations on the building trigger instantaneously much interest on your picture, so we forget about the grey weather.
I miss though an horse-driven carriage pulling out of the archway!.
Thanks for showing such elegance.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-05-10 14:36
Waw, impressive building plenty of details and matching color contrast given by the blue of windows and the statue on the very top
A sad new to know is the final capture of Colmar, like a firework, the best at the end
Miguel82 (27674) 2014-05-12 19:50
I understand the reason why that original and style facade holds your attention Ike, great report, the windows are decorated with flowers in pots, excellent hues and perfect sharpness, regards
mirosu (16129) 2014-05-15 6:57
First to my last photo. You are like Jason, do not believe me. The herd contained more that 250 sheep. The photo shows only the leading group. You have to see what was following. But you can estimate the whole herd size from my photo which I've posted few days ago, showing major part of the herd.
Now to your beautiful Alsace house façade. Excellent view up, beautiful details. I like it very much.
Very well done.
jmdias (63912) 2014-06-20 6:49
this façade has so many details and adornments that we could take much more images of it. very nice angle catching the whole façade and showing how rich it is. TFS.
ChrisJ (113137) 2014-07-21 2:19
Missed this one. I like the unusual statue at the top of the building. The ornate detail and sharpness are superb! Good colour and saturation. Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue. The big arch at right adds interest and a focal point. Tfs!
abmdsudi (53601) 2014-08-13 7:10
This is aesthetically so pleasing classic architecture full of great details and vibrant colours and the artwork work is admirable when the fine weather makes it standout hinting at so much more. There's more sense of context in an interesting perspective that really makes you wonder around to pick up other details too and you really did your best here. Credit to your skill in achieving a fine balance of exposure and composition. Awesome catch, TFS
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-21 9:59
A very nice vertical view of old facade in Colmar, the old town, beautifully captured and well maintained the afternoon light, very good contrast and nice to shoot it.
with warm regards,
