@MARIANA: Hi Mariana. I loved walking around my hometown, taking pictures and feeling the atmosphere of the upper town. Thanks for your beautiful comment. :)

Franz from Baden, Austria

a wonderful and very effective look at the chapel! i love the unique perspective and the very cleverly chosen dof! the choice of monochrome was a good one, too!

@Franz: Hi Franz! Thanks a lot for your support! I am so glad that you like it. I love this part of the upper town. Tomorrow you'll see a broader view of the square next to these two buildings. Oh, and THIS IS NOT A MONOCHROME. Just the real colors. No post processing :) Have a good day!

Franz from Baden, Austria

how could i ... ? on closer examination, it does become obvious that it's not a monochrome at all! this doesn't change the marvellous impression at all, of course! ;-) a good day to you, too!

@Franz: I do agree that it's difficult to tell! Just a slight touch of pink and blue. Thanks again, Franz! :)
