I like the lighting on this.

This picture makes me want to cry, I love it so much. And it brings me back to walking the streets of Bruges eating those delicious waffles!

Right, the car, only saw it now because you mentioned it right now :) The problem with your own photos is, that you see things other people do not se - and you do not see things other people do see....

Good job. And congrats....

I would like to thank everybody for voting and commenting on my picture. This one broke my personal record.
I still can't understand how I missed the car on the left when I cropped the picture.

I don't know the city of Bruges all that well and I did no research at all before going, this was one of those 'in the spur of the moment' shots
Though the picture looks tranquil, the city certainly wasn't.
Bruges has a big fair in May, it was a warm evening and the streets were filled with tourists. I heard more English spoken than Flemish that night.

Very beautiful and peaceful photo.
05/07/2005 11:50:50 PM
Great shot! However, this must be a pretty popular spot as I have seen this shot many times before on other web sites.

How tranquil! It makes me want to be there.
05/06/2005 02:01:24 AM
Very nice. I like the reflections you have picked up in the water. Nice detail on the trees. Slightly overexposed on the leading edge of the bridge - but overall - very nice.

Awesome detail! 8
05/05/2005 11:09:22 PM
Nice! Very crisp!

Great Reflection and lighting. Nicely done
05/05/2005 05:21:42 PM
The shadows are nice. The overexposure area is the distraction.

This is pretty--nice balance with the trees on the left.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I would have cropped the car on the left. It put a time/date on the scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice composition, like the mood. the very bright spot on the gridge attracts the eye and it's blown in a small area, but that would be hard to get around in basic editing.

Ready for a frame. Very nice.
05/04/2005 09:04:00 PM
A slight crop on the left perhaps. Beautiful details. 9
05/04/2005 06:49:50 PM
great shot, i love the reflection of the bridge in the water... nothing beats a cool medival village!
05/04/2005 06:39:23 PM
awesome reflection.
05/04/2005 06:04:01 PM
Beautifully still water
05/04/2005 04:50:43 PM
It'd be a shame to lose those well lit trees just to crop that Chevy Tracker out. Good color.

cant go wrong with such a beautiful subject. I might have tried to dim down the light on the left a little because it draws you away from everything else. amazing shot!

nice shot.

Attractive image, well composed, pity the bridge light is so harsh but that can't be helped. Good shadow detail.

Nice use of the light
05/04/2005 06:10:30 AM

05/04/2005 05:31:48 AM
Awesome reflection - well done
05/04/2005 04:53:24 AM
Very nice image and certainly has that medieval feel. Nice reflection and colours should do well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 02:27:21 AM
Wow. Where are the knights. Nice capture.
05/04/2005 01:38:21 AM
Pretty, with a nice, smooth reflection. Color contrast between the leaves and the yellow of the windows is nice as well. Blown highlights on the bridge are distracting, though.
