Trencin is located in the western part of Slovakia with the Vah river running through the city.
It is one of the oldest cities of the country and dates back to 11th century.
Current population of Trencin is about 60,000.
Trencin is an important commercial, economic, and cultural center and because of it is also known as the “City of fashion“. Many institutions and companies have their headquarters and branches located there. Fairs also have a long lasting tradition in the city.
The high point of Trencin is the fortified castle which overlooks the city. The exact start of the construction is unknown but probably goes back to the 11th century and building continued until the 14th. The Tower carries the name of Matus Cak, a Slovak historical figure and it is today, one of the symbols of the city. In the renovated castle exhibitions, medieval music and shows are organized as well as, classical and folkloristic concerts. The castle is opened to the public also at night.

A very skillful piece of framing here - the whole thing is completely balanced. Love the Nikon colours too. Great work.
vincz (19113) 2007-05-22 4:50
Beautiful colours for this superb composition. layer of green, layer of red, layer of blue in which the castle is almost shining. A few people going quietly through their daily life activities to complete thi charming scene. Very well done.

Budapestman (82620) 2007-05-22 5:04
Itt szilvesztereztem a barátaimmal 2003-ban, így nemcsak a kép erényei tettek rám nagy hatást, hanem a hirtelen feltóduló emlékek is. Ismét tökéletes fotóval örvendeztetted meg a TE közönséget, mivel együtt van minden, ami egy jó képhez kell: a képkivágás tökéletes, a fények ragyogóak, a téma csodálatos. Az előtérben látható emberek sokat adnak a látványhoz most is, élettől lüktető, mesés hangulatú a kép. Megy a kedvencek közé. Szép hetet és jó fotókat Kívánok!
Julian_K (1055) 2007-05-22 5:18

bella immagine con la solita nota molto esauriente e ben scritta.
Mi viene voglia di tornare nell'Europa orientale...
albertopiubello (2623) 2007-05-22 19:02
mi hai sempre affascinato con le tue foto africane ma sai infondere lo stesso fascino anche all'Europa dell'Est con le sue atmosfere dove sembra che il tempo si sia fermato.
Bella soprattutto la composizione di vita quotidiana.
manada (6239) 2007-05-23 0:39
Stupenda composizione con il castello, in alto, che domina la cittŕ di Trencin. Ottimi nitidezza e colori. La presenza di persone e uccelli rendono dinamica la foto, bravo!

Vato_Law (12720) 2007-05-23 14:44
Lovely view of all these colourful houses on a nice diagonal with the fortress behind, rising high above this scene. I like the low action going on the street with the lady stared in the middle of the street and this biker riding slowly (it seems) on his bike.
The colours and light of this photo are just perfectly managed.
izmirli (3987) 2007-05-23 18:00

riclopes (35577) 2007-05-24 4:11
Olá Attila, this seems a gorgeous peaceful place. You made a great composition with everything in it and very attractive colors. The Castle, the colorful old houses the statue people in FG - very rich image with lots of nice details to observe. Love the cyclist passing by, although it would be perfect a few seconds earlier, with him at right. Excellent work.
kiwi_explorer (12209) 2007-05-24 4:38
The quality of this photo is very good ... I like the overall sharpness and the natural colors. The background castle is just as interesting as the foreground. Well composed and presented. Excellent!
Deepforest (9260) 2007-05-24 5:22

josepmarin (57799) 2007-05-24 12:27
Your good setting catches the magnificent traditional architecture of this beautiful place, where the castle dominates the image and stands out on the blue sky.
There is a very interesting color in the image, the tones are vivacious and have a good contrast among them. Good lighting also.
The people add more interest and dynamism to this scene.
Good work, my friend.
jhm (139268) 2007-05-25 7:27

Excellent architecture photo! A beautiful urban landscape, with great composition, very nice perspective and at least three very interesting levels. Beautiful saturated colours. Congratulations!
Scharan (14144) 2007-05-27 22:03
Muito bonita esta foto e interessante composiçăo, incluindo o homem de bicicleta andando tranquilamente entre os pombos e a mulher que parece esperar por alguem. O cenário ao fundo é lindo e o contraste das arquiteturas se destaca; gosto das floreiras nas janelas que dăo um ar romântico e o céu ajuda com seu azul especial. Parabéns!
Angshu (55669) 2007-05-28 8:06
Excellent balanced compo. with the road in a diagonal & the colourful facades of the houses. The castle looming over the city is certainly the chief attraction. Another wonderful picture from you

A very appreciable point of view to apprehend the historical aspect of the city. The image is very beautiful and a good depth. The colors are very pleasant and I like much the clearness of the photograph. Places really interesting apparently. Thank you Attila.
With all my friendships and a good WE,
Jakab (3867) 2007-11-18 12:43
a gondos szerkesztésnek köszönhetően persze ez is magasan veri a helyről forgalomban levő képeket. A vár itt tényleg úgy jelenik meg, mint a polgárváros oltalmazója.
Azon nagyon elcsodálkoztam, hogy 18 mm-nél nem látok torzulást. A várfal jobb felső pereménél viszont mintha lenne némi kromatikus (zöld) aberráció. A WS-ben küldök egy korrigált változatot, bár ilyen kicsi méretben nehezen tudom eldönteni, nem csupán érzéki csalódásról van-e szó.
