It was a warm summer day. Decided to drive down to Atlantic City not for gambling but for sightseeing. It was a 90 minute drive on Garden State Parkway and 15 minute drive on Atlantic City Expressway. Parked the car in the garage and with my camera came to the shore where you see these colorful buildings. There are a few casinos, lots of shops, eating places and other things on this boardwalk.

Atlantic city or Disney Land? What an explosion of colour! Peaplo must be very happy there! Nice shot my friend!

Surprisingly colorful for a US city. Good saturation & sharpness too with the people adding scale & animating the shot. The diagonal angle of the street adds dynamism & linear perspective. Tfs!

I like the straight line of the boardwalk leading the eye on those colorful buildings. Good animated view and summer mood. Looks like one of Donald's Trump casino at the rear.
Have a great day

the photo is very beautiful soul, happy with all these colorful buildings, a scene full of movement and without cars, there is also a good sharp, your POV is very good and nice perspective created, the picture is a little crooked, hanging 1 degree to the left, and there's a bit of lens distortion, in my opinion is a little too bright, do not hate me for my comments, are lightness, is a great shot, I did a WS ... hope you do not mind, have a good day,

Je découvre cette ville avec grand plaisir. La période estivale est bien agréable pour circuler le long de cette promenade entourée d'immeubles colorés.
J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance générale.

this is such a bright and colorful shot! I have heard about Atlantic City so many times, but never really seen much of it. This picture sums up exactly how I would picture this place.

Je viens justement de me taper la saison un de Boardwalk Empire qui se situe justement à cet endroit mais à une autre époque. Toujours aussi coloré ce bord de mer.

Splendid colors and great depth here. We see lots of people walking by and this gives the scene life and dynamism. Great composition with lots of details too. I have been there some 20 years ago and happy to see no significant change. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

Hello Dear Lakshmi !
We rarely see a town as colourful as this one. The atmosphere of the town is also just as colourful as the photo itself. Is the pavement of this part of the town done in wood? I wonder what this town is like after dark. I can imagine it to be well illuminated and even livelier in ambience. This image reminds me of a photo from Miami. All the architecture is made of sugar. The cheerful atmosphere of the town is well presented in the photo. The image is well exposed and well saturated. Atlantic City in August, the summery scene is full of friendliness. The pedestrian street is very nice; we don’t have to watch out for cars. To be able to walk in the middle of the wide walkway must be a very pleasant experience.
With my very best and warm regards,
Have a very nice Tuesday morning, Lakshmi

Lepo mesto bez automobila sa lepim zgradama i ljudima koji setaju, dobra kompozicija.
Dobar trenutak snimka, perspektiva i prikaz, lepe boje.
Tu su i klupe za umorne setace.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.
Nice place with beautiful car-free buildings and people walking, good composition.
Good time recording, and display perspective, beautiful colors.
There are also benches for tired walkers.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best.

I had no idea a city in the US could look so colourful and exotic!
With the relaxed atmosphere of the people in the pedestrian street this looks like a scene in a major film studio.
Or like a scene of a theme park.
Good perspective, composition and lovely colours.
Best regards, Paul

Colorful image of "East-Vegas", Lakshmi.
Managed well with contrast and light to show each building on diff. tone, and people gave dynamic scale.

It must be a fun trip for you. This broadwalk capture is nice with activities against colorful building. I like the view and exposure control in the frame.
Thanks and kind regards,
