First time replying to this thread after multiple visits (starting from the first page), and I am deeply impressed by how you treat Dresden with care and respect it deserves. Your black and white shots (especially the one with a red balloon popping out of the picture) look truly amazing, and those truly show a more classical side of the city, especially its people. I feel immensely grateful to see the repeated themes of many buildings in the city: I truly love the colors and windows that accentuate the city center, but I truly love how you break the theme with something much, much different (especially the statue on one of your many windows image). And that grand church that towers over many of the buildings sure also cuts the main theme of Dresden being a typical European city with mid-rise buildings, lots of windows, and tons of foot and road activity, making me feel like, I truly want to be there to adore the sights, sounds, and feel of the small city.

Let me tell you: it may be a small- to mid-size city (I could even take a tram ride all day to savor the sights, meet the people, and everything else in between), but it is a truly rich city with a history of its own (I truly wonder who are those people on statues are, because there are so many of them!) that, I believe, I truly want to go there some time! As with your Leipzig collection, impressive and excellent snaps, my friend!

You capture the soul of Dresden. You should create a book of photographs.

That church shot looks truly magnificent, with all the windows and alternating yellow and black bricks that adorn the exterior, making me feel like the church is indeed a wonderful place to visit and look around! For me, it is such a unique structure that really tells me, "come, visit me!"

Those little statuettes and statues that adorn nearby buildings are also wonderfully made as well, in which I suspect that those took a long time to carve, shape, and mold into those wonderful designs: I especially love the cherubs! And on the fourth image from the church pic, I feel intrigued by that one building which looks like all cement to me (the one to the left of the Ontario shop): what structure is it? It looks pretty strange since I cannot immediately find its association with the rest of the more ornate and tastefully-designed buildings next to it.

Gorgeous snaps again, my friend! Dresden, for me, is a magical place to be in that I truly see myself walking around the main square, looking at the church, the buildings, and the people.

I thought the same things before my visit. You will enjoy it when you do visit. Dresden will not disappoint you.

Your latest Dresden shots look truly wonderful, especially the church and underpass pics. That grand church surely gives prominence to a city already rich in history, and that golden angel statue accentuates the city's already-charming character, something that I truly enjoy and want to see when I visit there. On top of those, those statues really stand out as prominent features of the city center, I wonder how many of those are there in the city... I mean, the details on each one of them are simply spectacular! And for the three black-and-white people shots: I find them moving in ways that I can say, the first one's a tourist, the next one's a vendor, and the lady may be a local to the city.

I'll tell you now: Dresden is hands-down one of the best cities I truly want to visit in Germany, and I love all of your pics!

Those people shots look truly wonderful! It looks like with those, Dresden is very much alive with locals and tourists enjoying the river and nearby structures, and I especially like the color pop images against a mostly black-and-white backdrop that emphasizes beauty and contrast to an already historically-rich city. I must say, you really treat the city so well, I am inspired by your excellent collection!

Bravo!
