[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Among the growing towns of the confederacy, Lucerne was especially popular in attracting new residents. As the confederacy broke up during Reformation after 1520, most cities became Protestant, but Lucerne remained Catholic. After the victory of the Catholics over the Protestants in the Battle at Kappel in 1531, the Catholic towns dominated the confederacy. The future, however, belonged to the Protestant cities like Zurich, Bern and Basel, which defeated the Catholics in the second Villmerg War in 1712. The former prominent position of Lucerne in the confederacy was lost forever. In the 16th and 17th centuries, wars and epidemics became steadily less frequent and as a result the population of the country increased strongly.
Lucerne was also involved in the Swiss peasant war of 1653.

Hi Francis,
I like the water leading the eyes to the two white towers in the BG. Great focus and POV with superb exposure management and natural colors. TFS

Bonsoir Francis Xavier,

Très beau panoramique de cette ville aux architectures et tonalités différentes.
Détails intéressants et agréable composition à lire.
Merci pour la note.
Bravo merci.
Amicalement. Agréable soirée.

Though the clouds in the top left corner are tend to OE but overall I like the details you managed to catch in this panoramic scene from the cityscape of Lucerne, Francis!

Sharpness and POV are well done, and light is well handled.
The river adds depth here and beautiful architecture of the buildings is simply nice to look at.
Well caught!


Hello Francis, a lovely panorama looking down the river.The water looks rather cold!
The buildings make an interesting skyline, especially with their different shapes and styles.
The tree on the left adds extra colour.
And it is good to see the mountain in the far distance.
Sharp shot.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Francis, Luzerne is a beautiful town and I love the way you caught this scene - the building along the river are soo typical - the sky with the clouds gives appeal to the picture. Thanks for your note.
Kindest regards Monika
