Hello TrekLensers,

This is another shot of part of the castle of Rheinsberg. This time I thought to go for a POV which gives a beautiful mirror-reflection of the building on the surface of water gently kissed by the blwoing wind at that moment.

I tried to capture the depth in the scene in which I particularly like the dreamy-look the water surface is giving to the building against artistically formed clouds.

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

Best regards,



Minor color saturation, then cropped and finally resized for TL.

Hi Paras,
A great reflection of this wonderful architectural structure in this clear water agitated by a slight breeze.
A superb exposure to present this beauty. Nice contrasts and an agreeable POV.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paras,
Something different with only the reflective side.Almost looks like a oil painting.Clever presentation.

Bom dia Paras

Hi Paras.

I do like these types of captures, Yan does many on beaches. This is superb, the reflections are very hypnotic as the eye follows lines and colours. The active sky adds to the mix, very well seen and taken. tfs

stv ;o))

Very nice capture of this reflections, more like an abstract art than a photograph. I like the ripple of the water distorting the image. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Bonsoir ami Paras,

J'aime ces réflections dansantes et les couleurs si belles qui chantent sur le trémolo des ondes.
Mes compliments pour cette peinture architecturale
d'une grande beauté.
Exceptionnelle capture et présentation soignée.
Bravo merci.

For my personal taste i would like it to be more abstract by reducing the leaves on the left...Nicely seen :)

The reflection was really to photograph.
Large castle and grandespecchio water.
Colors and contrasts.
Pictorial effect excellent and well presented.

HI Paras...nice artistic shot. Excellent tones and colors. Nice reflections.
