Pardubice - colourful houses on the little and quiet Werner square. Very nice place for a walk which offers typical Czech renaissance and baroque architecture.
The shot was taken in a full shade and I used shadow - highlight command to retrieve details hidden in the dark parts.

Hi ROmana, a very simple but very good show of color contrasts and depth. The facade is very attractive and blends well with the leaves strawn cobble stone road. Thanks for sharing...Alex

what a wonderful fall shot! The colors are just beautiful. From the golden leaves on the ground to the bright and vibrant colors of the houses. I like the composition with the empty bench and the overhanging branches and the colorful houses on the diagonal. You did a very good job with the light and shadow, too. Well done! Many thanks and warmest regards,

It's a great, great one !
I really like the way you've framed, all is very well thought and nothing is left to chance.
The bench is perflecty placed in the composition to catch the eyes, the drooping branches are very elegant and underline the architecture.
The colors are very stunning and make a luminous image.
The fine quality reveals many details. You did an excellent work.

I have been driving across this place (and stopped for a cesnochowa..garlic soup in its surrondings) heading for Bruntal.
so I missed this colourful pleasant and peaceful square.

Good composition! Very nice autumn colors and lights!
asajernigan (20876) 2008-11-06 15:11
This is a nice autumn scene with great color and lighting. The colorful buildings are great and well framed by the trees.
Waylim (25172) 2008-11-06 18:13
Wow, love the colors here. So well balance between the nature and architecture. Love the POV, including the tree and all the falling leave, and such a pleasant composition using the tree to frame this beautiful image. Light is nice and soft, no hard edges. The bench off course invited us in to stay for a little longer. Simply lovely. Thanks so much

A wonderful autumn view in this nice place,
Spunkie (318) 2008-11-07 0:49
Wow, these houses look like they're from candyland. It's great that you included the bench on the left and the fallen leaves as well, giving this photo more or a story.
It's a well composed photo, but i think you might have over done it on the highlighting, as it feels a bit flat (like a painting) and not a photo.

I worked for a month in Pardubice, in establishments which are not allowed to speak at that time. City very charming, very nice to remember the time spent here. Thank you for remembrance. Interesting place, nice and light colors. The best one.

Ahoj Romano, perfektne zkomponovane, krasne oramovane stromem, lavickou a domy. Jedinou vadou je mozna ze je to uz malinko prehnane s tim shadow -highlight protoze to ztratilo na nejakem tom kouzle. Ono obcas neni na skodu nechat nekde trosku stinu.
mej se moc hezky a diky za krasny komentar. Urcite o vikendu vyraz nekam fotit, je tedka podzim plny barev.
Royaldevon (27495) 2008-11-07 13:07
What a pretty scene.
You have chosen a good pov with the bench well placed in the frame.
The tree's branches and overhanging leaves, lead the eyes nicely to the pastel coloured houses.
A very well composed and well balanced shot.
Clementi (52514) 2008-11-07 14:25
Ciao Romana ,
very nice composition with some magnificent autumnal colours. still more beautiful ones of the buildings, a colour triumph .
andywo (4723) 2008-11-08 8:12
What a fantastic view and colours! Very good composition and quality. Excellent done.
UlfE (14641) 2008-11-08 11:13
A superb composition with the bench and the autumn leaves and cobbled stones and the beautiful houses. The bright colours are very beautiful and your post-editing job is very good. I could see that you are having fun and are experimenting with your new Adobe Photoshop CS. I really enjoy the result.TFS and have a nice weekend!
Burberry1 (6041) 2008-11-08 11:53
Excellent and framing Romana!
U created a nice and veryyyy pleasant corner to take a rest!
pavseljn (75) 2008-11-08 13:52
What can I say that hasn't been said about this photo? Apart from showing a great scene, perfect composition and beautiful color, it gives me a sense of a fairy tale world, an escape from real world when you need some peace and quiet. That bench is really inviting to just sit down and think about life, universe and everything.
AiresSantos (56155) 2008-11-10 2:01
Hi dear friend
Wonderful vivid colours in this fine autumn picture. I like your POV, the leaves in the ground and how you framed it with the trees on top.
Have a nice week
mydrjoe (1240) 2008-11-12 3:58
This is a beautiful and colourful image. You've chosen a very good POV and I like very, very much this well balanced composition. It is curious to note the complete absence of shadows, which increases the appearance of a watercolor painting that, in some ways, this image has. Excellent take. Congrats!
GerdVDC (0) 2008-11-16 2:05
The tranquility that breath from this wonderful autumn scene is just wonderful. It is very well composed and your use of the shadow/highlight feature in photoshop really worked to get the details back. I also like how the branches frame the top of the photo.
All the best,
alftrek (3270) 2008-11-17 16:36
Excellent low POV composition with the chair and foliage framing. Good colours and FG details. The PP work turns out really well in increasing the exposure to dark areas. Good work
angela926 (1884) 2008-11-25 19:22
Very nice shot, beautiful colors, excellent composition and pov, lovely light and contrast, very artistic image, it looks like a painting.
RGatward (20060) 2008-11-30 11:22
Jst a quick look at your protfolio,a nd the subtle colours here rally jumped out from the thumb in your recents.
vmukherjee (612) 2008-12-30 8:08
Beautiful shot. The colours and composition look great.
CLODO (29722) 2008-12-30 8:32
It's really peacefull!
Good low point of view (as a dog can see) starting from a bench and fallen leaves and leading to coloured houses (as sweets).
Michau (261) 2009-06-27 16:48
Ahoj, so colorfull, so plastic, it looks like painting. Beautiful shoot.

Ricx (13495) 2010-01-21 13:04
Hi Romana, How beautiful.. It looks more like a post card.. The leaves from autumn add so much depth and brings it to reality. Have made you a favourite for your colourful photos. Rich
photoray (10935) 2010-03-01 7:46
Like everyone else a beautifully composed and created art image. I enjoy the building details in colorful pastels and the bench looking over everything with a covering of leaves.
Dyerco (10185) 2010-04-18 18:00
Nicely composed with the tree on the left to hold the eye in the frame. There vis a feeling of melancholy now that Autumn has arrived and summer is over.
speedymanu (3525) 2010-04-23 12:39
such a profusion of colors is almost unbelievable. The leaves on the ground add that romantic touch. Bravo
guitianmiranda (5323) 2010-04-27 13:53
This picture mixes perfectly the autumn colors and atmosphere with de colourful houses, making a two sceneries space, I like it.
grigand (19443) 2010-05-16 14:20

npecanhuk (62474) 2011-04-17 11:41
The urban environment seems to be to pleasant!
Sharpness, exposure, chosen pov, colors, contrasts, horizontal format, black & white borders and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

C'est beau et c'est poétique.
jrleborgne (1554) 2014-05-31 9:15
Great shot really, it looks like a cartoon decor, very tender and relaxing atmosphere.
I already got this feeling when going to Moravia, few years ago, in Telc town.
