Good Morning,

This is the capture I took from an open window belongs to the Castle of Burghausen, a beautiful historical castle complex which is famous as "longest castle complex in Europe" stretching up to 1,043 meters.

In this shot I tried to get an optimum exposure in order to avoid any OE on the sky part which is sometimes tricky to achieve I feel. The tower of the church you can see belongs to the city of Burghausen itself.

I thought to present this shot to today's theme, "Looking trough"!

As always, looking forward to your critiques/comments/suggestions.

Best regards,

Hello Paras.

Nice addition to the theme today, I like the closeness to the stone walling to collect this view. We see much laid out across this fine town, the spire stands prominant and visual.

stv ;o))

Have a good day.

Good window...Lovely view...good colors and sharpnes
um abraço

Hi Paras,

A nice contribution to the Friday's theme, using the window to frame the scene is a good idea. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the church. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Paras :)

You showed this castle complex in natural colours and perfect light beautifully.
Grow green trees and the the blue of the sky makes up the very pretty background.
The very showy, beautiful work, I like him very much.
The pretty contribution to Friday theme.

Have and nice the weekend.
Best wishes...Barbara.

Hi Paras. Super shot looking through the stone window down on to this pretty town below. I understand what you mean about the optimum exposure. I have been practising this and have been finding it difficult. I either ended up with too much foreground shadow or a washed out sky and gave up in the end. Where did you focus to get the correct lighting in your shot as you have no OE here? A nice addition to the theme.


Awesome contribution to Firday's theme using the archway as a frame. I like your pov and it has good lighting. Nice details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Ciao Paras, great view of lovely church, fantastic natural frame, fine details, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Paras

Nice use of the fg arch to frame the bg tower & it also adds a graphic element. Good sharpness, colour & saturation. I like the 3 horizontal layers of blue green and red with the sky trees & rooftops. Tfs!
