This was taken in the "ASTRA" Museum of Traditional Folk Civilization (Muzeul Civilizaţiei Populare Tradiţionale "ASTRA") from the Dumbrava Forest, 3 km south of Sibiu, on the road towards Răşinari. It is easily accessible by car, bus or tramway. Occupying an area of 0.96 square kilometres, it is the largest open air museum in Romania and one of the largest in Central and Eastern Europe. It contains houses and workshops of the traditional Romanian folk culture from the pre-industrial era. Over 300 houses and other buildings are situated in the forest around two artificial lakes with over 10 km of walkways between them.

well spotted bright blue house which has been nicely framed. The combination of the colors is very appealing and eye catching even in the miniature. Great contrast and sharpness.

An usual colour for a house but it looks certainly very good in this picture. A fine and interesting architecture with this thatched roof.

It's pleasing to hear that nations are caring for their heritage and passing on such information.
There is a definite connection, colourwise and texturally, between the roof, the jutting wooden supports and the b/g trees.
The ray of light, cutting across the corner, has a greater impact than its size.
A fine collection of differing textures.
My warm regards,

molto originale come colore per una casa, eccellente anche il contrasto con gli altri colori.
Bello il taglio e la suddivisione degli spazi.

Cette ancienne maison a des couleurs qui ne laissent pas indifférent. Ces musées en plein air sont toujours très intéressants.

The blue house contrasted with the bright green is an eye catching and an attractive colour combination Daniel. I do like the textures and details provided by the thatched roof, woven fence and trees; they confirm the rural setting.
Warm regards Rosemary

The blue is a very attractive colour and I can see why you took the picture of this small house. There are very good textures in the thatched roof.
The museum sounds like a very interesting place.
Kind Regards, Ann

Sa stii c-o sa folosesc imaginea asta drept terapie pt. zile obositoare! Cateva minute de privit si te incarci cu prospetime, linistie, seninatate! :)

Wonderful deep blue in the house with the lovely thatched roof above. Nicely composed with the house on the right, letting us see more of the surroundings. Thanks.

Hi again Daniel
Another lovely blue house image from you. I love Romanian traditional rural architecture. Maramures, Bukovina, Transilvania, all have a lot to offer to a discerning photographer.
Have a nice weekend

undoubtedly an eye catcher this vivid blue house,very well captured with excellent lighting and very good sharpness,
ChrisJ (96654) 2014-03-25 11:09
Good saturation, density and sharpness with a fantastic warm cold colour contrast between the yellow green grass and the blue facade of the house. I like the diagonal shaft of sunlight on the left side of the building. Excellent textural and tonal details in the thatched roof. Tfs!

Another shot of this beautiful architecture! I like this colour a lot and you framed it very well, including part of the straw of the roof and the fence. A beautiful place for a museum!
