Rudi, this is very colorful and picturesque. I like the reflections as well.
3 Cindi P (How did I get here? )   (5/10/2005 12:51:36 AM)
Lovely colors and the reflections are the very special. I'm distracted by the shirt in the doorway, though, not the bike, just the shirt, none-the-less, see crop suggestion...
suggested crop >>

Very nice I like colours and the reflection in the street, but above all I like the composition, if the blue shirt was to be a distraction, which personaly I don't think it is, I would clone it out not crop it out.. very well done Rudi
5 Daniellapuenteb.   (5/10/2005 1:33:32 AM)
It looks like a painting very beautiful composition and colors, great job!
6 Corry   (5/10/2005 1:45:14 AM)

Beautiful - I love it all.
14 docmm   (5/10/2005 2:29:13 AM)
Great colours, agree it has the look of a painting. The tall upright format suits the subject well. A fine composition, apart from the blue jacket, it takes the eye out of the picture rather than into it.
15 Lockhart   (5/10/2005 2:48:02 AM)
Few photographers are able to transform a photograph into a work of art. This shot does this with great affect. It has a "feel" to it similar to the post-impressionists. A marvelous composition. The blue coat in the doorway and the bicycle add just the touch of interest the scene needs. And those red plants in the upper right add a touch of color. One cannot but want to continue strolling down this street to find what is just around the corner. The wet street, the shutters, the doorways are all transformed from the mundane through a wonderful application of gentle and beautiful light across the entire graph. I think maybe you are a mover of light.
16 Martynas   (5/10/2005 2:51:21 AM)
Well composed and visualy strong pic.

27 CherylB (I only lie when I do not like your pic)   (5/10/2005 10:00:13 AM)
Rudi, don't you dare crop this! if you agree about the shirt clone it as John suggested.

you should do MORE of these! this is fabulous and how lucky( well planned) to catch it after the rain brought out the details and also added to to mood. the only thing I would change is to clone this out, it should be an easy task

41 cARTerART (Claire Carter)   (5/10/2005 2:55:49 PM)
A great way to capture this scene, the light and reflections are spot on. Blue looks nice with this scene but not sure the jacket was the right way to introduce it
42 Elisabeth   (5/10/2005 3:08:34 PM)
What a beautiful and colourful street shot! I suppose it's after the rain nicer than with sunshine? Very beautiful capture!
43 Hans Van Rafelghem   (5/10/2005 3:55:00 PM)

Excellent, Rudi!
51 LindaY (Linda Y)   (5/10/2005 8:05:49 PM)
Very beautiful and well done, Rudi. I love the feeling that this photo conveys to me. The reflections of the buildings in the puddles of water is really nice. I like the presence of both the bicycle and the shirt in the photo as it gives the photo some additional life and adds to the mood. Before 11 Sept 2001, I had planned on going to France and the Haute Savoie Region and Annecy were on my "list" of places to visit. Perhaps I will begin planning that trip again in the near future.

Nice one!Sorry for late...:)K.M.
60 gdanger (George Dangerfield)   (5/12/2005 10:59:46 PM)
I was after a shot like this when I was in Nice France in March, I think what really makes this shot special is the wet pavement and resultant reflections!
61 Awais   (5/15/2005 11:47:08 AM)
Very nice image. Looks like a Painting.
62 Dan Cardiff   (5/16/2005 4:35:57 AM)

Rudi, gorgeous photo, mainly for the light and chosen angle. Congratulations!

64 (marco-On)   (5/18/2005 7:17:27 PM)
Excellent perspective
65 Steve Terry   (5/26/2005 4:32:16 PM)
Wonderful! The viewpoint and composition are great but it's the colours that make the shot, especially that touch of blue.

on a preview looks like one of the canals in Venice :) very nice colours...
71 Bertys30   (11/8/2005 4:48:21 PM)
excellent colours and composition. Too bad for shadow in top corner, I would like to see image in full colors here, but nothing you could do about it....
72 surfacing   (2/6/2006 7:16:21 AM)
I thought from the thumbnail iot was Venice! :-)
Very well seen!
73 Murray Dobbie   (2/19/2006 7:15:24 AM)
great photo, I would like to see it without the blue shirt if that is possible, it draws the eye away all the other more washed out colours.

if the shirt was not there the bike would become more evident which would also add to the photo- for me
74 Kacha (Katarzyna Wójcik)   (4/17/2006 9:19:27 AM)
this is very beautifull photo... I like those colours & the frame is great... =)
