[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Until I can get back out with my camera, I am going to indulge myself with uploads from my archives :)

This was the view from my hotel window on the morning after my youngest daughter's wedding. Canada is so very young by comparison!
One of the cool things about Türkheim is that it survived all the devastation of WW II, even though fighting took place in the fields not far away.

Composed in camera, captured in raw, saturation and levels adjusted in raw, converted to jpg, resized, sharpened, added slim frame to separate it from the blue background of treklens

As ever, your feedback is welcome, as are your suggestions for improvement!

Hi Silke
Finding and capturing what is beautiful in our everyday life, that's one of the most important quality of the photographer. Here, you isolated a little corner of beauty that very few peopole will notice. The plusses are: the diagonal composition, the rich natural color of the tiles, the good use of light and shadow, the sharp details of the moss that grows on the roof after many years, the vine that climps op to the roof and finally, the perspective created by the wall,the balcony and the arch in the lower background. I must add that you can find beauty everywhere in Alsace. The difficulty resides in being original and here, you are very original


These tiles look extremely "heavy"....and in America we also know that we are SO young....and we don't have the ancient buildings. I love the use of tile, I love the patina you have captured here! The advantages of using that tile is obvious. Here in America we can't let vines grow over shingles, they invade and rip up the roof! But here, they can grow with wild abandon! I love it!

Hi Silke!
Very much European cityscape, I love shots like this one - to show architecture in detailed view but with excellent deep in frame, yes! - diagonally presented roof with BG makes unique and perfect shot, I'm really impressed by your work.
Best greetings - Tom:)

Hi Silke, I find tile rooves such as this and also oriental styles highly appealing. It is such a key element yet often overlooked. TFS. Murray.

Nice shot Silke. Great POV. Nice lighting, color and sharp detail. Well done. TFS, Lori

Hello Silke,I can only repeat what Serge has written so succinctly.
Thanks for sharing.
Regards Jean.
