Café Society

Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Forum rules
Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

Please also ensure that you have a meaningful location included in your profile. Please refer to the FAQ for details of what "meaningful" is.

I took the picture of this week almost two years ago in Vienna. Covid-19 put and end to scenes like this in cafes and public gatherings since last year and people all over the world resented not being able to gather together. Yet, it's ironic that most people are engaged in online communication rather than enjoying the presence of the people with them. I hope you like it.

I've never visited Vienna but would like to. Worth visiting?

I believe so. It's on my list, along with Budapest. When we can travel again. <sniff!>

There's an element of class - and culture - in some European cities that we don't quite seem to have here in Au.

Thank you for your comments. Is Vienna worth visiting? Definitely! In March 2019 we did a Danube and Rhine river cruise that started in Budapest and ended up in Amsterdam. We visited the cities along the Danube and Rhine in Hungary, Austria, Germany and Holland. Food, drink, traveling, side trips, entertainment and access to monuments was all included. Was it expensive? Yes, but because everything was included it ended up being good value for money. Other cruises charge you for the minimum they can provide, which appear a reasonable price and later add extra charges for everything else, which elevate to the final price tag of your holidays. We traveled with another couple, who have approached us to repeat the experience once this nuisance and deadly virus is brought under control and we are free and it is safe to travel.
