nice street scene with well chosen POV and good angle. The mist in the background and the wet cobbles go well with the whole climate of the picture. The colors are very nicely saturated despite poor lighting conditions - well done!
Interesting architecture provides good settings for the picture.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your evening!

You're capturing well this square and the surrounding buildings by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Heidelberg's townscape with the atmosphere of medieval times. It's also tasteful for the syone pavement and the classic buildings with many windows. And, I know that here will be the famous sightseeong spot from many tourists on square.

Not the ideal weather for a holiday. But it's impressive how the fog has taken up the view of the hills and seems to come closer towards the roofs of the buildings.
Despite this sky the picture is amazingly clear and colourful.
Best regards, Paul

You have proved, again, that it is possible to take interesting, colourful and sharp photographs even when the weather is inclement. The details are very well captured.
Your viewpoint works well, creating good lead lines and a fine sense of perspective.
I always like to look at people. People watching can be a very enjoyable hobby!!
My warm regards,
ourania (33565) 2014-02-26 12:06
the weather was very gloomy that day but your photo is quite bright and there's intensity in the atmosphere. The effect created by the heavy clouds and fog is intriguing, the city and the people seem isolated from any other reference. The street is busy, the people have added agreeable movement and colour. The couple walking briskly in the foreground add great dynamism and balance, they are as important for the composition as the buildings themselves. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

The presence of the people is adding life to the scene. The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colours. Have a nice day.

I have been hearing about the Heidelberg Catechism for years but i think this is the first picture i have seen of the city. Thanks for sharing a photo with smart colors and wonderful clarity. I like the cloud covered hill in the background.
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-02-26 22:43
Love these street scene so we can explore all the corners and going on. A rainy day, tour or talk going on the right, lots of stalls selling their food, and beautiful architecture.
Well managed and presented, Tfs,

Hello Ike, Nice picture from the Heidelberg. In spite of the cloudy and rainy day it is so busy here, with many tourists. Rather gloomy but in travel it happens so. Excellent photo showing beautiful architecture and street life.

Ciao caro Ike
An excellent daily life shot of this busy town. I like all the colourfully dressed people, the sense of movement, despite the dreary weather. The mist in the left BG has had a very interesting effect on the atmosphere too.
Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing

A fine capture of this busy street with lots of tourists in evidence and why not, Heidelberg is indeed a beautiful city to visit and wander round. I like the pastel tones and good sharpness.
mirosu (15066) 2014-02-27 4:13
Another lively street snapshot. Excellent light, superb viewpoint. You have captured the walking couple with the crowd and nice buildings in excellent way.
Very well done.

This picture gives me the first impression is that after rain the air is so refreshing. It also brings out the vivid color for the picture. It's a very nice image of great architecture in Germany.

boa (6167) 2014-02-27 12:26
it looks cold and wet despite it is taken i June. On the other hand you have captured a nice shot with an good overview and interesting architecture from this square. The museum seems to be an interesting place to visit when you see the amount of tourists waiting outside. Tfs!
jcpix (13716) 2014-02-27 15:24
A stark contrast in the sky from your previous picture, but I do like the atmosphere it projects. Even on a cloudy day, it can't dampen (pun intended :)) the spirits to get out and about to enjoy the scenic beauty and charm of these small towns. A good position taken, using the lamp post to fill some of the negative space in the sky, and the gentleman wearing yellow pants adds a nice little splash of color and complimentary link to the tourist groups rain jackets. Taken at just the right time to have everything come together quite nicely. Enjoy the weekend ahead. All the best.
danos (88347) 2014-02-27 23:48
nice the daily snapshot of the town this rainy day.I like the view of the Universitatsmuseum square with the lot of people to be there and a group of tourists to wait to enter in the museum.The light and the colours are well managed.

Interesting view from this lovely city ... Very good contribution to TE.TFS.

Un endroit très vivant, de belles architectures qui attire les touristes comme le groupe devant le grand bâtiment blanc aux multiples fenêtres, belle lumière et couleurs sous le ciel gris , belle présentation
adramad (39174) 2014-02-28 12:20
A great POV of this beautiful city, full of charm, the ideal corner with beautiful facades that look pretty well despite the rainy day, the presence of so many people give a great touch of vitality to the image.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a good weekend.
eldancer1 (29495) 2014-03-01 10:16
Maybe it's good that the weather was cloudy when you visited this place because I like the effect of the low hanging clouds on the mood. Looks like a popular place for visitors, nicely captured with good details considering the condition. Well done, tfs.
The picture of the A-10 Thunderbolt was taken during final landing approach and the plane was about 100 feet off the ground.
macjake (57950) 2014-03-01 11:33
seems like the rain and overcast skies have followed you everywhere you visited in 2013 :)
lets hope for better weather in 2014!
always interesting to see these towns and cities which I know absolutely nothing about!
lots of activity and action going on here, and its a fine shot despite the climate.
SWEETFREEDOM (22966) 2014-03-08 23:57
characteristic and interesting buildings. good details and colors.
Miguel82 (25049) 2014-03-17 20:17
Dear Ike, crowd in that central quarter of Heildelberg, the architecture is remarkable compounded by high buildings of pastel colors, some visitors are listening to a guide I guess, indigenous are walking down that street, all the best, greetings
jmdias (57061) 2014-05-19 16:21
we can imagine how humid was this moment in the town. good details of this façades and architecture. I liked the brownish building ahead. nice inclusion of the people in the area.
berek (40511) 2014-11-13 7:40
A lively place, beautiful architecture attracts tourists as the group in front of the big white building with many windows, beautiful light and colors under the gray sky. love it my friend.

I have not yet been to Heidelberg so thanks for uploading this. Good graphic elements of the dark lamppost at left against the lighter toned white sky. Superb sharpness and the street crowds animate the scene and provide scale. Tfs.
