The Old City
« on: July 15, 2011, 05:11:26 AM »
In contrast to the "The City" topic which more relates to large cities around the world with pictures of skyscrapers, skylines, neon light etc...   

I would like to use this thread especially for pictures which are related to the old world cities in Europe/Asia/the Orient, where one could find such things as cathedrals/mosques/temples, medieval citywalls, old towers, fortresses and other such things.

To give you an idea I will start with some pictures of beautiful city of Regensburg in Germany where I used to spend the longer part of my live so far.

I gotta say that the last picture is the most amazing image I have seen in a long time.  You took a truly marvelous picture.

The dramatic sky has the power of B & W and yet you have managed to use the color in the center of the picture top draw the eye in without distracting it.

I do not envy you the weather but you have a great eye for composition
