I've cropped a little, used brightness & contrast and at last a litlle of colour balance.

Hello Jose,

I have never been to Prague but this is just how I imagine it to be, with imposing buildings near an equally imposing river. The shot is nicely composed with good use of the rule of thirds.
Your shot reminds me of an old master's painting but, maybe, one which needs the varnish cleaning. It seems a little dark. I hope you don't mind but I have 'cleaned' it in a w/s. Just a little more brightness, without losing the obvious 'mood' of the shot.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Jose,
I like this atmosphere... the city seems so quiet and peaceful.
A city along a river is always interesting. Here, without the Vitava river, the beauty of Prague would not be the same. the point of view of your superb photo is a nice tribut at this wonderful city. Very nicely done! Annie

I like it, look so peaceful. Great pov and dof with sharp details. Very nice colors. Well done, tfs.

Love this! THe colors are so rich, and add such a vintage feel .. your trademark Jose. Fantastic postcard.

Ola Jose

A well composed shot from Prague with attractive pastel colours & reasonable sharpness. At first I thought it might be an idea to adjust the horizontal waterline to the right, but that would tilt the perfectly aligned verticals.

Ola dear Jose
Happy new Year and Marry Chrustmas. Little late, but I didn't have enough time to spend with my friends sharing the photo experence, this year. But I saw many of Your pictures, and I am delited. Especualy because You secceded to "catch" everything You want in the moment of making a photography, not after in Photoshop. This year I am colecting my experences from analog photo cameras with my new Canon EOS 450, but I didn't have enough time to share with all of You my TrekLens friends. Your earlial suggestions is very fundamental for me, and I have a filling that I have a oportunity to learn from a real master of photography. Thak You very much for that.
What I want to sey is that in Your photos, like in this, I could fill the mood of Your unconvencional promenade on the banks of the river Vltava. I never have been there, but I could have a picture in my mind how wonderfull would be to walk there.
Congratulations for sharing with us Your unforgetable moments
Best wishes

Hi Jose,

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the buildings which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the buildings. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.
