Dear All,

While scrolling through my archives I came across this picture which I took about 3 years ago while my visit to the German city of Rheinsberg. It is a small city but a nice one. It has a beautiful castle to have great time there.

I went for a lower POV in this picture in order to expose fuse the beauty of Nature along with man-made beauty (a wonderful piece of architecture in te form of main building of Rheinsberg Castle).

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

Have a nice weekend.

Best regards,

Hi Paras

There is nothing wrong with this image. I might try a workshop though for an alternate view. Good sharpness, beautiful reflections & excellent framing & composition. I like the low shooting angle & the people on the distant shore add scale. Tfs!

Hello Paras

I think the low POV has made this very attractive, the water and lily pads give great depth and texture in constast to the castle with its pale walls and its red tiled roof. Even the clouds had formed to say "hi"...love the mood, love the clarity and first class presentation, welldone and have a good weekend. TFS

Stv :))

Hello Paras :)

The way of the framing this shot from low POV and the miraculous line of water and lock in the background delighted me here.
You exhibited the surface of water with lilies and light very curiously.
Beautiful composition in perfect realization with the fantastic effect of colours and enlightened, very interesting and showy work...congratulations!!!

It is looking to the archive worth, I do this often! :)

With best wishes.

Hi Paras,
Beautiful soft lighting on this marvelous architecture. I like the low POV you've chosen with this lake as FG. Nice water lilies in the surface and a considerable DOF.
Very subtle colors and a complimenting pastel colored sky.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paras
Very nicely presented place. The beautiful colors of a beautiful reflection.

bo,jour Paras
When the eyes have seen the castle they come back to the Rhein and linger on the water lilies as in a peaceful boat trip
nice pov

Hi Paras,

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the castle of Rheinsberg. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


HI Paras..nice shot..excellent tones and light. NIce focus and details.


Your low pov has captured the beauty of the lake very nicely and the reflection is also attractive. The castle looks a nice place to explore. TFS

Hello Paras,

this is a nice view: quiet water and clean castle...so exotic for me :)
I like the turbid reflections in the water giving a motion to the picture.
