Dear TrekLensers,

Another capture of Castle of Rheinsberg during my recent holidays to the city of Rheinsberg. This time I chose a different POV, low POV which includes a wooden bridge, thought it may give depth in the scene.

I like teh peculiar formation of clouds and how they were reflecting on the surface of nearly calm waters. I wanted to catch the 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.

I like the addition of the wooden bridge, it leads the eye in so well and acts as natural framing, so does the opposite side with the foilage of the tree. Very clean, very crisp reflections to this photogenic building, the red tiled roof and sky contrasting so well together, a pleasing scene Paras.

stv ;o))

Bom dia Paras,
Superb landscape which is a fine postcard of this legendary castle that looks just built.
You adopted a point of view that allowed to capture the beautiful image and the brilliant reflections in the water.
You kept a perfect balance of light, color and tonalities, including a cloudy sky which is a splendor.
Best wishes,

Ciao Paras, lovely composition with fascinating reflections, fantastic sky, excellent perspective, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hellow Paras,
Did you use a polarising filter because the clouds are so pronounced and the sky striking.Mirror image caught to perfection, well seen.

Paras, the bridge is a great addition for this shot, it acts as leading lines to teh castle. Natural color and well managed exposure. The reflections in the water adds a romantic mood. Good work, TFS
