Old town - gate.
Lublin is the ninth largest city in Poland and the second largest city of Lesser Poland. It is the capital and the center of Lublin Voivodeship. Lublin is the largest Polish city east of the Vistula River, and is located approximately 170 kilometres to the southeast of Warsaw.
Lublin, until the partitions at the end of the 18th century, was a royal city of the Crown Kingdom of Poland. Its delegates and nobles had the right to participate in the Royal Election. In 1578 Lublin was chosen as the seat of the Crown Tribunal, the highest appeal court in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and for centuries the city has been flourishing as a centre of culture and higher learning, together with Kraków, Warsaw and Lviv.
Although Lublin was not spared from severe destruction during World War II, its picturesque and historical Old Town has been preserved. The district is one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments.

Bonjour, cher Christophe,
Nous entrons dans les entrailles de l'époque médiévale à travers ce passe sous voûte.
La voie constituée de galets doit tordre allègrement les pieds;.
Une image d'un grand intérêt à tous les niveaux.

The cobblestone street from 450 years ago is complemented by the small group of pedestrians that are framed in an arch. The colors, composition, depth-of-field, light management are all perfect.

A very nice view through this tunnel with details of cobblestone path. Kids with striking colors bag and jacked makes interesting subject in the frame. Excellent work and thanks for sharing.

I always like this classical scene with a looking through a gate and some people vanishing in the distance. These one will probably vanish in the undefined grey mist just in front of them.
Have a nice day

A scene very reminiscent of some of Silvio's postings. I like the downward point of view and the presence of the people who supply an intermediary focal point and help create depth and perspective. Excellent rendering of the colours and textural detail.

A wonderful small alley in the old town of Lublin.
The cobblestones make a charming sight and shine beautifully in the daylight.
Excellently presented with the covered passage, the lanterns and the passengers. I guess these people find themselves in front of a large frosted glass at the end of the passage, a strange element on the picture.
Best regards, Paul

The length of the cobblestone street is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the lantern and of the arch. The light is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.

This is a very good composition. It is an attractive street, the light is very well handled and the persons wearing a lot of red details are perfectly placed. They make the medieval street come alive-

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. J'aime le point de vue très bas qui fait bien ressortir la texture des pavés. J'aime aussi l'effet entonnoir et le beau trio au loin.

Uroczy a nawet romantyczny zaulek, kocie lby naleza oczywiscie do ulic z dawnych czasow, nurtuje mnie tylko ten mglisty fragment u wylotu bramy

Wonderful image, it seems that the time has stopped in this beautiful street of medieval aspect, only the tourists tell us that we are in current times. Ideal perspective with the cobblestone that leads to the arch and the street that starts behind the.
Well done. I like very much.
You have a good day.
All the best, my friend.

Nice picture of beautiful place and moment.
Excellent composition, colors and presentation be superb.
I like stone texture and natural framing.

This ancient archway, with its strongly cobbled surface, makes a great subject and creates a wonderful sense of perspective towards the opening.
The group of figures is well placed and helps the process of movement from f/g to b/g.
The colours are perfect for the subject.
I am curious about the misty area in front of the figures and cannot decide what it is!
Have a lovely day,

I liked the framing of the arch with the stones of the ground and the lamp in evidence. nice inclusion of personages.

I love the view of this charming alley through the tunnel. The colors are vivid, textures are rich. One thing that puzzles me is the fog-like entity in front of the pedestrians, what is it?
