Dear All,

I was off for holidays and came back yesterday after visiting the castle of Rheinsberg. The city of Rheinsberg is a beautiful one with a special flair. It owns a beautiful castle which is a wonderful place to visit at.

I went for a lower POV in this picture in order to show a wondreful harmony between the beauty of Nature and the architectural mastership of this castle.

If you wish to, you can get information about this Castle at: www.Brandenburg-Tourism.com

Best regards,

Bom dia Paras,
Beautiful set this panoramic image retrieves the greatness of this piece of history of the castle Rheinsberg.
The scene is superb and his picture a masterpiece, full of color, light, reflections and valuable information.

Hi Paras,
Good artistic approach with the low angle.Seems like the castle is being flooded, however a tranqual scene portrayed perfectly.Quite a dramatic sky with soft reflections.Excellent documentary or travel brochure, well captured.

Hi Paras,
I would have bet that this is an HDR treated presentation of this marvelous panorama.
Great cloud formation enhancing this composition. I like the reflection in the lake.
Very sharp image and perfect color saturation. You must have chosen the perfect correction in EV to produce this image without PP!
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paras,
A lovely location that has been captured so well. The low POV works very well with the water lilies in the foreground. really beautiful cloud patterns adds to the scene. Great shot.

Beautiful! I love shots like this, water lilies, sky with clouds and a castle Paras! Very nice POV here! You captured it well, without any OE in the clouds! TFS Best

Did you use a "fake tilt shift" process on this? It has this weird "toy" look, like a plastic toy house on a lake, really strange effect! I like it, very lovely reflections, the horizon is a little off, but really cool effect. I'll do a WS for you..

With the clouds and the reflections it does look like a magical. I like the low pov. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi PAras.

The low perspective obtained for this capture was so worth it. Brings all elements so close together, the reflections of the sky dappled between the lily pads gives much attraction, the light illuminating the walls of the buildings adds so much appeal and depth, love it. tfs

Bonsoir Paras,

Cette image rivalise de beauté entre ciel et eau!!!
Magistrale composition pour un rendu exceptionnel.
Fantastique miroir et joli dégradé de contraste et couleurs superbe POV.
Mes compliments pour cette présentation ordonnée.
Belle atmosphère ressentie.
Salutations amicales.


Hello Paras, the lower PoV works just fine here, enabling us to see all the lily pads floating above the reflection.
I am wondering if there isn't just a little too much sky? How about a half and half composition?

If all you did was resize for TL, then you did very well.Although like Linda,I do like a straight horizon.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Paras, a great capture of this architectural beautiful Castle. A very nice presentation with the water surrounding the buildings - the sky wiwth those beautiful white clouds enhances the whole picture.
Thanks for sharing - kindest regards Monika

A bright sky and heavy with clouds, the rifleso on the lake.
A wonderful enchanted castle for the location and the architectural progresione.
