Good Morning Everyone,

If you want to make your town or city look attractive, then you don't need to go much further than emulate the efforts made by Pontivy in Brittany.

Please click on Floral Delights to see the photograph much bigger and much clearer.

This is the riverside and I have to say everywhere had the same sort of attention.

I will add a w/s showing the bridge across the river. Bridges always get floral attention but I have rarely seen such wonderful, floral decorations throughout.

It's a tribute to the town on how they manage to fund and sustain such efforts. I am involved with floral decorations in my village and I assure you, it is not easy to get regular funding and the manpower to do the work.

I hope you enjoy the scene too and that it reveals some of the beauty, Bev :-)

Hello Bev,

A nice summery picture with lovely group flowers in foreground.
You chose a wonderful angle with bridge and the nice old building.
Also the light cloudy sky is a nice addition.
Very well done, TFS.

Kindest regards,

ciao Beverly,
I like this picture whit the cold light of the north Europe, very good the composition whit flowers, it's an amazing place.
ciao, Giacomo

Hello Bev,
This is an exemplary composition with a strong diagonal accent. The red and white flowers, the river and the large building are all very nicely lined up, even the clouds fit the diagonal pattern well. Furthermore it's a very well exposed photo with nice colours, and I get a feeling you were careful to stand in a place where the "floral delight" would not obscure the view of the bridge too much.
Kind regards,

Hello Beverley,
What a lovely place. I really like the view across the river and the many flowers are a truly great addition to the foreground. Along with the gentle sunlight they add a very pleasant and peaceful mood.

Bonjour Bev,

Comme je le disais à ton voisin immédiat dans la galerie, les fleurs ne gâchent jamais un beau paysage et il faut bien l'avouer, les français en sont les spécialistes.Très belles lignes de fuite double.



Hello Bev,

good title to describe your photo, the variety of flowers we can see here is interesting, you chose a fine angle to show them also, well done,

Have a good weekend,


Hello Beverley, a good point of view, where the flower topped fence and the bridge make a triangle of interest, before we look at the river and the distant buildings.
There is a noticeable pride in the towns and villages which is commendable.
Good sharp quality throughout.
Regards Jean.

hello Bev ,
Pontivy is a charming breton little town . And your composition ^perfect in many aspects shows it us at its best .

Hello Bev
Two lovely sunny summer scenes full of colourful flowers, just the right picture to banish the cold and grey weather outside for a moment.
You used the excellent conditions for this picture very well.
Have a good weekend. Groet Rob

Ciao Bev
molto bello e caratteristico il paesaggio bretone, le città sono sempre arricchite con fiori.
Simpatica casualità, le nuvole sembrano seguire la prospettiva delle rive del canale.
Buon we

hello Bev, I always say that the most beautiful flower decorations are in the villages of france. And here is the proof. marvelous flower bed just along the river. who cares for it? Who waters? it is for me always a mystery. Charming composition.

Hello Bev,

The bright, colorful and cheerful fg on this side of the river contrasts well with the rather austere and drab architecture of the bg buildings across bridge, in the bg at right. Tfs!

Dobar dan.
Interesantan i lep pogled, lep trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa oblacima. Lepo cvece na obali reke i drvece, lepa arhitektura i most u pozadini.
Zelim vam lep dan, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.

Good day.
Interesting and beautiful look, nice moment, good text ...
Beautifully displayed place and moment, good perspective and contrast, beautiful colors, beautifully captured moment with clouds. Nice flowers on the banks of the river and the trees, beautiful architecture and the bridge in the background.
I wish you a nice day, all the best for a weekend, happy.

Hello, Bev.
The flowers can change everything, that line of houses next to the river, they do not have anything special, modern and with a touch of the environment of the area, but the beauty of these flowers, together with the bridge and the trees that we see in the background, They turn this beautiful composition into a winning image.
Good perspective of the image, very pleasing to the eye.
Colorful, sharpness and brightness are captured excellently.
Very good composition, magnificent presentation.
Have a good weekend.
Warm greetings.

Hello Bev,
This is a beautiful pair of photos, and I especially like the main one. The plants are so lush and colorful, and I like diagonal line across the bottom of the frame. The architecture is also very nice, and it looks like a scenic and relaxing place to take a stroll.

Hello Beverley,
A splendid summer picture whereby the many flowers brighten up more than only the foreground.
The long diagonal line in so many different colours provides a very charming scene. Also on the bridge and near the houses on the other side of the river we see many flowers. People in this town surely like to make the place where they live as attractive as possible.
Best regards, Paul
