[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ghent is a city of history in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium. During the Middle Ages , it was one of the richest and most powerful cities in Europe. It was once considered the second largest city north of the alps, after Paris. The impact of this rich past can be clearly seen when viewing the imposing architecture of churches and the houses of rich traders. The whole of the city center is restored in this fashion, and still breathes the atmosphere of a thriving late-medieval city state. As the city council made the center free of cars, it is now a very welcoming and open area, which does not fail to impress even the people who live there.

Hi Francis,
A nice full image showing interesting, lines, patterns and color tones of the buildings.

Bonjour Francis,

De belles couleurs et des détails très fins. Une belle composition.


Nice colors and interesting environment, TFs.

Hi Francis
A well balanced photo with a great deal of impact, which captures the essence of the city without the inclusion of many people.
I assume you used a long focal length to compact or forshorten the buildings.

Very interesting POV. It is nice to know that they don't allow cars. Tfs.

Bom dia Francis,
What impresses me most about this image is the strength.
Intense colors and well balanced are always marks on your style of great landscaper.

Good capture of the varied architecture & that yellow painted building,keeps our eye in the scene.I like the mixture of modern & old, Francis Xavier,well taken.My first impression on visiting Ghent,was exiting the railway station & viewing hundreds of bicycles,belonging mostly to the university students,I had never seen so many in one location in my life.


A nice mix of architectural style from ancient to modern. Good pov and it has good dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
