Photo shows typical Bernese house façade from Swiss town of Laupen. Laupen is situated in the Canton of Bern, around 20km south-west of Swiss capital city of Bern.
It was the site of the Battle of Laupen in 1339 with decisive victory for Bern and its Swiss Confederation allies against the town of Fribourg.
Laupen was one of a string of battles presaging the definite decline of High Medieval heavy cavalry in the face of improving infantry tactics during the following century and led to Bern joining the Swiss Confederation in 1353.

molto bella questa tua serie di foto sulle facciate.
Anche questa l'hai composta in maniera perfetta e la presenza delle due figure femminile completa a perfezione la simmetria delle piante di gerani e della piante presso l'ingresso.
Piacevoli anche i riflessi sulle vetrate del piano terra che danno una note di colore supplementare.
Un eccellente lavoro.
Ciao e buona settimana

On se croirait presque en Alsace avec toutes ces fleurs aux fenêtres.J'aime le cadrage vertical qui donne de l'ampleur à l'ensemble. Les dames offrent une belle relation dimensionnelle et beaucoup de charme à l'ensemble.

A great capture of this attractive façade nicely decorated with flowers, not to say a pair of agreeably attired young ladies. The reflections offer additional interest and some contrasting views. I like the light and colours and the excellent clarity.

This is one of my favorite photos in your superb gallery. There is the half-timbered house, the reflections in the window of the buildings across the street, and most importantly, the two young women at the bottom of the frame. They give the photo scale, a human touch, and as young people they represent a counterpoint to the old historic house. But for me a wonderful aspect is the girl on the right, seemingly puzzled with her hand on her head.
Fabulous shot, Miro,

You gave a close-up to a beautiful building in Switzerland. These flowers are gorgeous. The reflected street scene on the windows are very interesting. It's a well composed picture. I really enjoy it.

A very attractive view of this half-timbered façade with a superb blend of colours, patterns and shapes. The splash of colour provided by the flowers anchors the whole scene well. I like how you have pasted the two ladies in the image (the inlay is more visible on the large beta version, especially on the feet). Their presence animates the setting and balances the composition. All in all, a very good picture.

A very nice house, beautifully decorated and captured with good light. For the composition the two women mean a lot by adding life and more colours.

una bella facciata e un connubio perfetto tra fiori e donne.
Ottima composizione e bella sequenza di facciate.

Well, you must know you have an easy target in me when it comes to anything from Switzerland! :) With so many attractions to photograph, and I'm sure you have, I love the fact this one showcases the simple charm of the city and country. Not only that, but you have included two lovely ladies to make things even more attractive! :)
I was particularly impressed with the colorful floral displays in Zermatt, but there's no disappointment anywhere, it all lives up the atmosphere and beauty of each town. The wooden framework and shutters also play a key role in this tight knit composition that is well suited to be composed as such. I also like the reflections in the panes of glass. Very well arranged and presented my friend. Enjoy the new day.

Another amazing daily life shot from Swiss, first of all, I like this big size of the photo, we can see more details of the building and reflection in the windows. I think the girls have the same job at the moment.
Have a nice day!
abmdsudi (44930) 2014-03-24 23:23
This is a lovely shot with its olde feel! The lighting, vivid bold colours, crop and subtle processing make this unique facade with timber frame a very special image. Your crop is spot on to concentrate straight on the composition lending to a striking shot and this is just wonderful with the treatments for it looks classic. Super crisp shot and the lovely human touch. Well taken, Congrats.
shreya2000 (1328) 2014-03-25 3:21
I like the angle you have taken. the colours are very beautiful. I like it.
Thanks for sharing.
ourania (33901) 2014-03-25 12:33
a lovely picturesque façade with great graphism and strong impact in the vertical frame that it fills. I like very much the characteristic architectural patterns, the colourful flowers and the reflections that illuminate the scene and make it look deeper and lighter. The smart ladies are well placed and integrated harmoniously. They add movement and interest too. You coped with the lighting demands very skillfully and created a picture that is detailed, natural and pleasing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
mesutilgim (86960) 2014-03-26 3:22

The reflections on thw windows are assets to the composition. The presence of the young women is adding life to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the facde of the building. Have a nice day.
