With only a quick moment to spare while at work, this picture caught my eye. Minimal, colorful and of course, "clean." :) I love the simplicity of common scenes, an observation that makes up that fabric of every day life in an interesting an visually pleasing manner. Bien fait mon ami. :)

Lots of complimentary opposite colors here such as yellow and blue, red and cyan, all that is missing is green vs magenta! The fg people passing by animate the scene and the plants on the upper left balcony behind the rails soften the scene. The blue sky makes a good backdrop. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs.

It was great to hear from you, and I'm enjoying catching up on your gallery. This is a fine shot on many levels, and a heartfet dedication to a loved one. As difficult as it may be sometimes in sadness, it's always a treat to honor the memories in a manner that shares a smile.
A wonderful note to accompany this "every day" scene, which makes us take a closer look at what's hidden in plain sight. :) Hope all is going well. Take good care.

Bonjour, chère Cricri,
I like the natural looking pastel colors and the superb warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and the red brown bricks within the ruins. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition with good breathing space right around. The angled wall remnant at left adds perspective. Tfs.

swietna kompozycja, urocze miasteczko! Niesamowite slodkie kolory jak na torcie. Podoba mi sie jak czysto i zadbanie wyglada, udekorowane mnostwem kwiatow.
Ciekawy POV z kamiennicami wzmacniajacymi glebie i tworzacymi interesujaca perspektywe. Bardzo atrakcyjna geometria.

Hello Jean Jacques,
The Gothic arches remind me of a similar church in Istanbul. The yellow red bricks in the upper part of the image contrast well against the blue grey tones in the floor and windows. Impeccable sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame. The light coming through the windows helps define the interior of the building and adds shadows. Tfs.

widze ze udalo Ci sie znalezc jeszcze lepszy POV niz te poprzednie. Tutaj dzieki odbiciu kompozycja jest jeszcze ciekawsza, szkoda troche ze uzyli tak razacego oczy oswietlenia tutaj, ale i tak udalo Ci sie swietnie zbalansowac naswietlenie i dobrze widac detale architektury katedry.
Swietny kontrast kolorow: niebieskiego i brazowego.
Musze sobie zapamietac to miejsce na przyszlosc :)

If you loved Lisbon, you will also love Istanbul. The tram reminds me of the heritage Taksim Tram in Istiklal Street. Here I like the long vertical streaks of color in the wet pavement. The blue 'walk' signs contrast well against the predominant yellow colours. Tfs.

great pattern on the snow makes a wonderful foreground!
It does resemble a bit the patterns made by the wind on the sand in deserts. Beautiful composition with the curves leading the eye to the great view in the centre.
Fantastic blue sky tops it up very well.

the boys add indeed an interesting touch in the foreground. Whitby Abbey looks magnificent from this angle, and the sky was pretty too. Great idea for an original presentation of this beautiful place. I have it of course in my gallery too, living just 40 minutes away.

this is like a rainbow row of homes :)
certainly catches our attention from the gallery page, it stands out well.
nice to have that little pop of clouds too, just for added fun.
charming place indeed. amazing history here, imagine what it looked like back in the 1200's!
macjake (57468) 2015-03-30 12:37
its funny how a good title really does/can make a strong impact on the photo.
here, 'waiting' for high tide...i really do get the sense the sea lion is just sitting here waiting lol
he's too lazy to move haha
funny post, i've enjoyed this one
macjake (57468) 2015-03-30 12:34
this one is all about the composition!
what a beautiful photograph.
love how the open street adds depth and leads us into the upper portions of the scene.
everything just flows so naturally, its very easy on the eyes.
lovely light and colors as your usual too.
macjake (57468) 2015-03-30 12:31
oh I think i'd love this place.
its a rainbow of color, lots of pizzaz and style.
its something we don't get to see very often at all.
and best of all, you have yourself a wicked blue sky to go along with it. its frustrating when the sky doesn't co-operate.
macjake (57468) 2015-03-30 12:24
yes, i've commented on those photos from Ana as well, so this is a good complimentary photo to go along with hers.
its nice to hear that you sound surprised, even from a locals perspective - it sounds like you didn't expect to see this here.
is it just me, or does Lady Liberty look a bit angry lol
excellent street shot, classic nyc with a bit of a twist

lovely reportage from this interesting town. I like all the charming structures which you have found like this one here. It seems a bit damaged but it makes the building even more photogenic. Great details and great quality of the picture. Lovely sky too.
