Time to return to France. Strasbourg is an enchanting city, and specially strolling along Ill in Petite France in early evening is a real joy.
The ILL is a river in Alsace, in north-eastern France. It is a "left-side", or western tributary of the Rhine.
Flowing through the city of Strasbourg, the river forms part of the 17th-century fortifications and passes through a series of locks and channels in the picturesque old town, including the Petite-France district, where its waters were once used to power mills and tanneries.

This district of Petite France seems an unending subject of interest for photographers. I like the composition and perspective of this one, that takes full advantage of the lovely reflections in the calm waters of the canal and the wonderful lighting which makes this picture so appealing. A beautiful atmospheric shot perfectly executed.

This is indeed a most pleasant place for a stroll though perhaps the weather might have behaved a bit better for you. I like very much the point of view looking along the quietly flowing river with its lovely reflections. Agreeable saturated colours and excellent sharpness. Unusual to see so few people about.

Another mastery capture in your Gellery.
Strassbourg is one of my favorites. Perfect pov and very nice reflections.
TFS and best regards

Nous sommes tous les deux au même moment dans la belle ville de Strasbourg aujourd'hui. Quel heureux hasard, nous sommes aussi sur la rive du canal. Ici, j'aime beaucoup les reflets dans les eaux très calmes.

Another excellent postcard from Strassbourg! Good colors management, fine details. I like these houses of the "Wachwerkisch" architecture. I have often read about the S. Justicle. Do you have a photos of this famous building?

Superb canal scene. This image reminds me of Bruges. Lovely colors and atmosphere. Good catch!

A nice view with very pretty houses and fine pastel colours. The reflections are superb and this looks like a very pleasant area for a city walk.

You succeed in framing your picturesque Strasbourg views with greenery at both sides.
The reflections are about perfect while their colours are really stunning.
I like the inclusion of both footpaths at the right.
The picture has an excellent depth.
Best regards, Paul

that is such a wonderful photograph of the beautiful city. The feast of colours is handled really well and with the superb clarity and dof makes this a lovely lovely picture! The mirror like reflections in the water are fantastic.
Have a nice evening.

Hello Malgorzata ,
i suppose that , with this poor light ; you've used a spécial PP , or a strong saturation to obtain this result . Not bad at all , even colors are a little curious .
Anyway , the composition is splendid and the reflections are wonderful .

piekne miejsce, te kolory bajkowe przycjaga wzrok. Slicznie obralas POV. Wspanial perspektywa jak niesamowite odbicie. Super zdjecie. Moje gratulacje. Piekna praca.

il cielo non sembra molto bello, ma il riflesso è fantastico, un vero e proprio specchio.
Bella la tua composizione, i due alberi dalle parti bilanciano bene l'immagine e il percorso del fiume crea un piccolo movimento piacevole.

Hey there Mrs. itchy Feet,
With what I've seen recently, I'm thoroughly convinced there's not a bad view in town...anywhere, not that you'd want to find one though!? :) You certainly haven't disappointed with this one either, full of pastel color and ambiance, with an air of serenity. Super reflection, virtually mirror-like. I wouldn't mind a stroll along these banks right now instead of looking out the window at the dry, dusty desert. lol
Even without a soul around in this shot, it's just as welcoming and desirable, you've put the city on a lovely display for all to enjoy. Have a great day ahead. All the best.

No, ten widoczek jest popisowy, idealne od icia, domy nadzwyczaj malownicze, a jakosc zdjecia jak zwykle pierwszorzedna

Belle composition et jolis reflets dans le canal de ces superbes maisons colorées strasbourgeoises.

Great composition with these beautiful traditionnal houses with coloured facades and very nice result with the water mirror, well captured, tfs.

znakomicie wybrany POV ktory pozwolil Ci zamiescic odbicie tego najbardziej kolorowego odcnka wzdluz kanalu. Woda zupelnie nieruchoma dala odbicie 100%.
Piekne zywe kolory. Nadal nie wiem jak to jest mozliwe ze niebo ktore w zasadzie jest tutaj jednostajne jednak nie wyglada na przepalone.
Kanal tworzy przyjemne dla oka zakole w kadrze.
Piekne obramowanie zielenia jeszcze dodaje uroku.

Idyllic Ill scene with the colorful half-timbered homes mirrored attractively like glass, and a cobblestone pathway for sauntering.
PS: The timing of Autumn colors in the West are very dependent upon elevation. The higher the location, the sooner the leaves become dormant. The area of southern Utah I was roaming around was not as high as Colorado's Rocky Mountains or California's Sierra passes, and the leaf change was primarily in late October and early November.

You have beautiful colors and mirror-like reflections in this photo. The gently curving river draws the viewer into the scene. An altogether splendid photo!

i have made a picture from the same p.o.v. when i visited last year Strasbourg i had good weather but a little bit of wind. so i missed these beautiful reflections.
josepmarin (58359) 2014-03-28 5:01
I admire the quality of the vivid colors and the great sharpness of this image, which you've caught perfectly in spite of the cloudy sky.
The weak light not avoid you to take a beautiful photo, in which the fantastic architecture of the houses and the green trees are wonderfully reflected on the water of the river.
The perspective and the depth of the image are great also.
