[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Innsbruck is the capital city of the federal state of Tyrol in western Austria. It is located in the Inn Valley at the junction with the Wipptal (Sill River), which provides access to the Brenner Pass, some 30 km (18.6 mi) south of Innsbruck. Located in the broad valley between high mountains, the Nordkette (Hafelekar, 2,334 metres or 7,657 feet in the north, Patscherkofel (2,246 m or 7,369 ft) and Serles (2,718 m or 8,917 ft) in the south. It is an internationally renowned winter sports centre, and hosted the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics as well as the 1984 and 1988 Winter Paralympics. It is to host the 1st Winter Youth Olympics in 2012. The word bruck comes from the German word Brücke meaning "bridge" which leads to "the bridge over the Inn"

These are the colorful typical houses of the City which even during the night are so pictorial and interesting.

Bonjour Francis Xavier,
Excellent POV de cette jolie ville très connue pour avoir plusieurs fois être nommée pour les Jeux Olympiques, il faut dire que le cadre s'y prête...
Ta composition est superbe, avec ces lumières baignant les habitations très typique de l'Autriche et la rivière que tu as mis en valeur en premier plan avec une bonne exposition...

Nice view Francis - head on to these buildings with a nice use of shadow and light in the foreground.

How about going aperture mode and f18 or f22 and getting nice starlights from the streetlights?


Bom dia Francis,
Refined picture of this beautiful city at night so full of charm. The lighting and reflections, as well as tones and shadows are a privilege of great artists as you.
Bom domingo.

Great mood has been shared in this nocturnal photography.

Hello Franics,
I've lots of memories associated with Tyrol. And your picture reminded me some of them. A wonderful noctural snapshot from an exciting PoV. The style of construction is quite similar with buildings I've seen in Wroclaw, Poland. Lovely tones are taken from the sodium lamps. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

Hi Francis
Lovely colors captured with beautiful details and very well framing where you nicely covered the Bg with its multi color illumination.
Best Wishes
