[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear All,

Another shot I took from the Castle of Rheinsberg and this time it was the associated buildings to this city's castle.

I went for a POV which gives strong contrast between the blue sky and the amazing architecture of the building. Of course, capturing the lovely mirror-reflection was another aim of my picture.

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

Best regards,



NO PP work in this hand-held shot with ISO=200, Focal length=18 mm, panoramic crop and resized for TL.

Hi Paras,
Your colors are just beautiful in this photo. Very sharp, nice details and a well chosen POV. Even the reflections have wonderful colors. Well done ! TFS Julie

The long crop works incredibly well here Paras! Super sharpness, but what I like the best is the reflection! Love that!

Bonjour Paras,
Perfect presentation of this lovely Castle of Rheinsberg,
great architecture and reflection on water,
A sharp and clear composition in a beautiful day I think,
I like the saturation of colors too.
beautiful..Paras and good work.

Love the color contrast between the blue sky and the red roof. Good lighting and dof with sharp details even the reflections. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,
Pinsharpness with strong contrasting colours between the building and BG.Nice reflections. Could you maybe have angled a bit more to get the top of the roof in, I know not always possible, a great image otherwise.

Hi Paras.

Clean lines, clear colours and pleasing angle used to show us the amount of reflections and buildings. Superb sky contrasting well with the red tiled roofing. Eye catcher for sure. tfs

stv ;o))

Hi Paras,

This is a lot different than your other images Paras, but the quality is there. As you mention in your note, great colors and contrasts between grass and the red-roofed building. A very well chosen POV as well. TFS.

Hi Paras,

As always I do admire your work and respect it. This one is not different, an amazing photo with clarity focus, good exposure management and lovely presentation.

I have no access to Photoshop at this moment, I want to do two things: Crop out the building on the left and check the level, it might be a lens distortion, if so I will attempt to fix that. But still the photo as is awesome. Well done & TFS

Hi Paras, what an exquisite presentation of the Rheinberg Castle buildings - the reflection in the water is splendid, so is the symmetry of the immaculate lawns- the red tile roofs in contrast to the splendid blue sky are very pleasant to the eyes.
Thanks for sharing - kind regards Monika

Beautiful panorama Paras, your exposure is right on the money.
There is good detail to be seen in both highlights and shadows.

I would like to see the verticals straightened though.

My kind regards,
