Dear All,

Another shot I took from the Castle of Rheinsberg during my recent holidays to this city and its vicinity. This time I chose an entirely different POV.

The city of Rheinsberg is a beautiful one with a n exceptional 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 wonderful 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

Kind regards,

Hi Paras
fantastic mirror image. beautiful vivid colors up and down. excellent sharpness. good low POV for enhancing the castle against the bright sky. well composed with including a pair of ducks.
an eye-catching image.

Dear Paras,
The POV you chose worked real well. I like the FG withe dark areas and branches framing the photo and leading the eye to the castle... The clouds in the bg complete the framing and result in a well ballanced picture. The focus is sharp and teh colors natural. Good work, TFS

Bom dia dear Paras,

Beautiful old construction, wonderful reflections, perfect POV. Excellent light, contrast, sharpness.


Quintessential and exquisite scenery to behold Paras , the large stately building is well placed in your frame rising towards the clouds in the top third , fine metering overall ( the whites particularly ) and the lovely reflection with the ducks gliding into the shot doubles the viewing effect of one perfect location here.
Good one dear , tfs,
Greetings ,

Hi Paras!
Superb capture of this wonderful Castle, from an excellent POV.
One o two castles? :)) Reflections are spectacular. The cloudy sky complete the scene.
Wonderful composition, perfectly balanced.
Very well done my friend: congratulations.
Ciao! Vanda

Good use of the trees to frame this wonderful architecture! Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Nice catch of the clouds and the reflections. Very well done, tfs.

This is a beautiful landscape Paras. The composition taken from the low POV gives us wonderful reflections of this grand castle. Lighting and detail are excellent and the colour contrasts work well. Good use of the trees and bank as a frame and the addition of the two ducks adds a nice touch.

Splendid : nice play with the light through the mirroring, lively colors, shooting at angle gave a surprising perspective, the two swimming ducks bringing us back to reality

excelente enfoque y el juego con el reflejo del agua formando una dualidad del castillo!!!

Hi Paras,

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The trees are framing well the castle. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the castle of Rheinsberg. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.


Bonjour Paras,
Le titre est royal et lui va comme un gant ...
Ce château est splendide de belle architecture, grandiose à souhait... son miroir lui renvoie toute sa beauté...Le reflet est parfait...
Sinon, belle lumière joliment gérée pour la mise en valeur, couleurs somptuteuses pour parfaire la magnifiscence de ce chef d'oeuvre...

bonjour Paras
amazingly neat and sharp and colourful for a reflected (in all senses) composition
bon week end
