The main square of the old downtown of Szentendre. The whole downtown is a pedestrian area with lots of restaurants, cafes, souvenir and antique shops. The old buildings are mostly renovated. There's a good opportunity for a walk up to the Church Hill that I presented yesterday or just walk around in town or the bank of Danube.
As you can see, the weather was perfect for this capture, I even had to use my circular polarizer for the better colours and better handling of strong sunlight.

Hi Kristof,

Picture-postcard quality, this is really impressive and attractive. PLenty of character and interest in these fine buildings and the cobbled street is also appealing. Good POV used to capture this panorama. Well done!

Regards and tfs,

Hi Kristof,
The POV is perfect here, it creates a quite special view. The colours of the walls are vibrant, the whole pictures breaths a peaceful atmosphere. Well captured and presented Kristof!

Brilliant POV Kristof, such great clarity too. The direction of the tiles seem to steer my eyes around the scene. Excellent colours and composition also.

Hello Kristof,
I planned and postponed a trip to Hungary a few years back. This image will suffice for now. I remember reading about Szentendre and its attractions. The brick b/g is well detailed, the architectural detail are evident. well done.

Hi Kristoff,
I like your POV,it lets us feel the atmosphere of this location,must be very busy during lunch & evening time,looks like some interesting restaurants.I think your polarizer worked well,colours of the buildings are proof of that.How was it walking on the old cobblestones,they sure add character to the scene.
