Greetings from Bavaria

Hi Folks,

Hereby greetings from Bavaria. Staying a few days near Munich in a wonderfull little town called Landshut, a colourful city situated at the river Isar.

Well I arrived with perfect summer weather and took the change to take my camera and make some impressions of Landshut and its castle, which you can see as the white building on top of the hill. I make quite a walk uphill but the view was priceless. Here the view at one of the many bridges ove rthe river viewing at the old city centre of the town.

Due the perfect light I used the simple camera settings of f/16, 1/160 sec and ISO 200 ASA.

PP work not much, cropped a latern pole which disturbed the centre view but left the other one on it's place. Adjusted also levels and curves, a small cropp, resize and using USM for final sharpening.

Well leaving my hotel to take a nice cold Bavarian "helles" beer at the borders of the river....cheers!

Hello Hans
Another great shot as usual, a good composition with a progressive perspective from boughs to the castel on top of the hill. Good luminosity and pin sharp details. Like the way you place the bringe in a diagonal position.


Love it! I totally agree with the F16 on this! The processing is wonderful, perfect contrast for me. On my screen it looks like HDR. The leaves are like a frame! Very nice work Hansie! Did you see our friend Brian is back from his long vacation? I am so happy!

Hoi Hans,

This is a very good photography with beautiful composition, an old architecture in the background and river and bridge in the foreground.
Excellent sharpness, light and colors.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

Bonjour >Hans
Ravie de voir de nouvelles photos de vous sur TL!
Très belle composition avec ce FG qui nous laisse découvrir une superbe vue sur le fleuve et l'église.J'aime la sensation d'être à l'ombre sous ce platane,à contempler le paysage.Bravo Hans et TFS!Catherine

Hello Hans,

The photograph does reveal a beautiful place with its tall spire and its hill-top castle.
Your setting has given perfect details of the bridge and the buildings.
I like how the bridge and its shadows, emerging from the corner, make a strong link from the f/g to the m/g; the upper fringe of leaves suggests the f/g as well as giving a natural upper border.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Hansie - very nice view of the town and bridge.
The details and colours are really good - so crisp and sharp. And I like the composition taken from this side of the water, and especially under the trees.
But can you see the tilt? I've done you a workshop where I have used the water right opposite you to level it up - the water level is NEVER on an angle.
Cheers to you too

I think a shot like this is a good argument for using the 'distort' tool in Photoshop. I can see the 'tilt' Janice talks about but it's only in some places. For example - the clock tower is perfectly upright. But the lamppost towards the right side of the shot is on a slight lean.

I guess laying a grid over the photo and using various distortion tools in PS is the best way to sort that out - assuming we are indeed the perfectionists we hope to be. :)

Delightful summer shot as our weather here gets colder!


nice shot, great framing and composition, very sharp too, hope all is well,
