Town Hall and Town Hall Square
Along the centuries, the Town Hall Square was the center of the citadel, hosting the most important bargains, where merchants and craftsmen from all Romania were present. In older times, the square was surrounded by houses built in the Renaissance, Provincial and Neoclassic Baroque style, houses in which shops and warehouses were accommodated.
In modern times, reintroduced since 1992 (after 20 years of interruption), the international music contest “The Golden Stag” takes place every year.
The Town Hall Square, dated in the first half of the XV th century, is dominated by the Town Hall, a building which combines several architectural styles. On the facade you can see the coat of arms representing a crown on a tree stump with 13 roots—symbolizing the 13 villages of the Barsa-county. During the centuries, this building has been the residence of the administration and the Court of the city, but now the History Museum of Brasov is established here.

there are some very nice colours here. i like the orange hues and how it matches with the blues of the evening. even if the distance is great, there is still a lot to see in the shot, from the architecture to the people, there's a lot going on. well done

Very nice early evening shot taken at just the right time when there is still some blue in the sky. Nicely balanced composition with good lead line from the central pavement. Some very nice tones and lots of animation. Good exposure management.

Beautiful early evening photo of this old square.
A good compo and pov. I like the colors of the old houses and church still there in the blue hour after sunset. The street lights create a nice atmosphere as well.

faina! da era fain daca surprindeai si niste peturi, hartii si mucuri de tigara. Altfel o sa creada unii ca nu-i in Romania.
iar iti zic incearca JPG to TIFF to RAW, nici nu se compara!

its the electric blue sky and the golden light which makes all the difference in the canvas
the perfect shot is nice in compositional value too
nice cocktail well served with all that strong lines at the bases creating the right perspective
