[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
You liked my blue hour in Verona, so I try with this one. In Sibiu it was raining almost all the day, but in spite of this I walked on the street of this beautiful city. In the evening I tried some blue hour shots. When the lights are reflected in wet pavement the rain is not so bad thing. Without tripod, as usual with me.

ciao Malgorzata,
la foto è senz'altro ad effetto per la luce che esce dalla strada bagnata dalla pioggia.
Buona inquadratura dalla piazza piccola sulla torre .
un saluto

Witaj Malgorzata,

A very original (and not easy) blue hour with this rainy evening. Not easy but very good photowork. I like the dored light and the nice reflections wich arise very well nad give a pleasant contrast with the blue color. POV well selected too with the large Fg which give depht.
Best regards,

Hi Malgo,
A perfect shot. Lovely atmosphere captured! The effects are just incredible.
Have a nice day.

Hello Malgorzata
effective rainy blue hour shot, the whole image just glows and has such an intense atmosphere. Testament to not every shot needs clear blue skies to be appealing. Well done!

Have an enjoyable day - Brian.

Bonjour Malgorzata,

Une photo originale à l'heure bleue avec beaucoup de lumière dans le bas de l'image ce qui donne un contraste pas trop réussi.

Hello Malgo,

as usual a great capture, like many of your beautiful shots before..
like the glittering effect, caused by the wet condiotions..

have a nice day, see you around, cheers Bernd

Hi Malgorzata
Beautiful low light image with wonderful golden tones and i like the reflections from the wet pavement which draws the eye to the bright building and church in the distance. Well composed pretty sharp hand held, excellent clarity with fine colors and good perspective. The dark evening blue sky provides a geat contrast. Great work, Congrats.
Best regards

Witaj Małgorzata, podoba mi się ten ładny obrazek w niebieskim godzinę światła odzwierciedlenie w wilgotnej ziemi przez deszcz, dobry strzał z doskonałej jakości i ostrości, bardzo dobrze wykonane dobra robota, gratulacje. Dzień dobry i szczęśliwy tydzień.

Z poważaniem.

Hi Malgorzata
Shooting in the blue hour is always a nice job. The wonderful blue tone of the sky if blended with warm colors of city or house or anything will be wonderful. Here what it is. I think you might want here to remove the blue aberration in the edges and increase a bit sharpness, but anyway, its a nice pov. well taken

Witaj MAlgosiu!
Coz wiecej trzeba "po deszczu" i takie niebo...
Super nocne zdjecie.
Fantastyczne kolorki.
Ciekawa wieza.

Hi Malgorzata,
This picture is even better than your Verona photo. Here you have a cold blue part with the roofs and the sky and a warm part of the square and the houses below. You have included a touch of warm yellow light in form of the clock on the church tower. This is a very good "accent" in the picture!
Kind regards

Hello Malgorzata, Looks a bit gloomy and wet for a lady to be out in this kind of weather. Photographers are another breed, aren't they? Very colorful with nice reflections from lighting. Interesting structure, I am guessing it might be a church, but the clock creates a doubt in my mind. Whatever it might be, it is very imposing over the scene here as presented. Nice job. Warm Regards, Roger

Witaj Malgorzata,
ladne swiatlo stwarza przyjemna atmosfere wieczoru,pozdrawiam

Cześć Małgosiu!

Świetne zdjęcie, a jeśli ddatkowo warunki pogodowe były takie sobie, to jest to mistrzostwo świata i to bez statywu - mi też sie nie chce go nosic. niebieskie niebo i dobrze wykorzystane "blue hours" i żółty chodnik stanowia ładną kompozycję i te odbicia!

Pozdrawiam, Leszek

Hello Malgorzata. Sibiu by night. Brightly lit by many lanterns. An interesting photo. The place is rain wet and everything reflects wonderfully. A shot worth seeing. Directly behind the tower was my / our hotel. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Ciao Malgorzata, fascinating blue hour with fantastic light, wonderful composition, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Malgorzata, sometimes rainy days like this one can work as well as the sunny days. Perfect blue here, reat reflections, hope u enjoyed Sibiu.

Ciao Malgo,
ci hai preso gusto a scattare durante l'ora blu.
Qui la strada bagnata ha giocato un ruolo principale e ha prodotto questi riflessi dorati sul pavimento molto belli in pieno contrasto con il blu del cielo.
Ottimo lavoro!

Ola Malgorzata ,
Beleza esta tua foto na blue hour com estes reflexos dourados neste chão de pedra molhado , bons detalhes ,parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Witaj Malgorzata,

You still managed a good shot despite the rain. In Verona it mostly rained when I was there. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the liquid gold and the blue sky. The wet pavement has even amplified the reflections. Tfs!
