One of my favourite buildings in Vienna, not least because of the eye-popping colours. It was designed by the flamboyant Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser as a playful take on the usually dull council housing. Today 200 people live in the 50 appartments, each of which has an individual decoration.

Thanks for looking and please view large for extra punch.

I love this. The ivy creeping over it and the colours make for a very unusual image.

Mine too, a Viennese landmark and well worth taking the time to find it when the image is as good as this one.

Thanks for all the comments and clicks. Brian, just a bit of radiant filter (from my favourite Virtual Photographer) at low opacity to give the colours a slight punch.

I think you must have thinner glass in your lenses as you always have so much clarity in your pics. Love those strong colours and the repeating shapes of the windows.

This also has a similar 'glow' to your last shot and it suits this subject very well too. You have a knack of finding these special scenes, and this really is lovely...
