Art nouveau sur la place Rubens à Knokke avec les statues " les " gros nez"

Knokke en Belgique est située à quelques kilomètres à peine de la frontière belgo-néerlandaise, c'est une des stations balnéaires les plus fréquentées de la côte belge.
Knokke est souvent considéré comme la station balnéaire la plus mondaine d'Europe du Nord.

Bonjour Christiane

The boys on the tricycles seems unconcerned with the modern art right beside them. Good sharpness and nice repetitive patterns of the tiles. A safe, happy and prosperous, travel filled year ahead to you. Tfs!

Hello Cricri,
A well framed composition featuring this rather unusual giant artwork. The little boy on his tricycle supplies scale while the people on the bench provide an interesting counterpoint. The whole is well exposed with excellent colours and clarity.

Belle journée

Very interesting pavement in this modern square. It looks great, fine artistic effect.


Hi Christiane
Extremely effective composition adorned by an attractive urban decors with clear colour separator with some attractive features. It's lively & bright, sharp in focus with the prominent rightly in place. Superb take, Congrats.
Best regards

Ciao Cricri, great view of beautiful square, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done,my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Christiane,
The square is nicely tiled but would have looked rather sterile without the sculptures. The long benches are a nice feature, and of course the children make the photo nice. But I think that a lawn, some flowers and maybe a fountain might have been a good idea. But the photo is nicely balanced, with superb light and sharpness.
Kind regards,

Bonjour Cricri,

On voit de plus en plus de ces aménagements dans les centre ville aujourd'hui. On fait complètement disparaître la verdure pour la pierre. Cela doit être moins d'entretien je suppose et surtout beaucoup plus chaud en été.



Hello Christiane,
Very nice capture from Knokke. Good pov and layout.
The pavement creates a wonderfull eyecatching effect.
TFS and all the best for a healthy and prosperous new year.

Bonjour Christiane, très bonne photo de cette belle et intéressante composition, très bien capturée dans cette belle image, avec une bonne netteté, profondeur, lumière, couleur et qualité. Un travail formidable et intéressant parfaitement fait, mes félicitations mon ami. Merci de partager ce beau travail.

Bonne nuit et bon dimanche.
Meilleurs voeux du sud de l'Espagne.
Bonne année.

Bonjour Christiane,
this is such a beautiful spot!! I like very much the pattern of the pavement. This reminds me the patterns of pavement in Portugal cities. The resulting lines lead the eye well to the equally attractive buildings. Such a simple thing and makes a huge visual impact.
I see there are some children enjoying the space as well.
I really like it!

Have a happy New Year!!

Ciao Cri
che bella questa pavimentazione, in questa grande piazza ci sono tanti motivi di ispirazione per fare foto.
Bella questa tua interpretazione, il gioco di riflessi con il vetro sopra le panchine è molto interessante.
Buon anno

Bonjour Christiane,
A great photo from this city. The row of narrow apartment buildings makes a great backdrop. There are clear similarities between them, yet they are all different. The foreground is very interesting as well. Not only the two large sculptures are wonderful, also the chequered square adds a great pattern. The long bench in the right hand foreground is also well included.

Pattern of the checkered pavement drew first look, that realized the boy on his bicycles, and the other's on far side, Christiane.
A daily-life scene in contrast to the modern shoreside's building, imposing by itself.
Bon-dimanche et bon-anne'e 2018,

Hi Christiane
