Thanks for your comments and tips!

Good morning John!
A really wonderful and somehow cozy little manor. I like how you show it in its rural surroundings. The brick walls create a beautiful contrast to the colours of nature around. A gorgeous place, a place to feel good ...
Greetings from springlike but rainy Westphalia - and have a nice Sunday!
vasilpro (41619) 2010-03-21 2:29
Excellent composition, very good POV, interesting architecture, very good light management and lovely colors.
Have a nice Sunday, Vasilis.

carper (96) 2010-03-21 2:36
deze is perfect John,
de samenstelling is bijzonder goed, alles is aanwezig, kleuren, linen, compositie, sfeer. Dit is een juweeltje John, waarvan ik mij afvraag waarom U hen niet eerder hebt geplaatst, prachtig werk, prettige zondag nog.
korina (547) 2010-03-21 3:32
Very beautiful photo of this idylic castle! Even without information your photo is wonderful with all these soft colours and this fairytale mood.
Have a nice Sunday,
Vato_Law (12720) 2010-03-21 3:34
might be unkonown but surelly very attractive and perfectly framed byy this square format you chose.
The light was a bit dull but it made pop up the colors of the greenery that surrounds it.
jurek1951 (42196) 2010-03-21 3:42
Excellent contrast and presentation,
good autumn colors and sharpness.
Excellent point of view,
snunney (101634) 2010-03-21 3:45
A most splendid building this nameless castle. I like the point of view looking across the field with the framing tree on the left contributing to the sense of depth. Pleasing autumnal colours captured under a sympathetic light. Very good sharpness.
cobra112 (15589) 2010-03-21 4:02
Ciao Jonh. Perfect sharp and details in a brandish perspective. Superb colours MF in a great compo. Well done!
bukitgolfb301 (42928) 2010-03-21 4:06
Hello my dear John
Sharp/clear/deep description in the detail as usual.
Very vivid color is always marlvelous too.
You did a great job again indeed!
Thanks for sharing and have a Nice Sunday evening!
Fante (5429) 2010-03-21 4:07
another masterpiece. Beautiful well balanced composition. Lovely and strong natural colors. Extraordinary sharpness and great DOF. Bravo.
josepmarin (58359) 2010-03-21 4:07
Do not worry for the lack of information of this castle, because the image caught in your photo is fantastic.
I like the autumnal atmosphere created by the weak luminosity and by the splendid colors of this beautiful season.
The combination of nature and architecture works very well in your composition.
belido (19934) 2010-03-21 4:20
I see that your personnel color and light treatment in this photo. Actually the image says by itself...we don't need a name or whatever. The square format works perfectly in here. Very fine photography!
PaulVDV (29809) 2010-03-21 4:24
De compositie is heel goed met heel wat details aanwezig.
Alhoewel de zon niet schijnt, heeft de foto toch een goede helderheid en heel wat mooie kleuren, o.a. herfsttinten. Het roze van de bakstenen past heel mooi in het geheel.
Beste groeten, Paul
npecanhuk (75592) 2010-03-21 4:37
What a wonderful picture!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, dof, colors, square format, black&white frame and composition are all outstanding features in this image!
I love the architecture of the "unknown" Castle!
The natural environment around it is very pleasant and beautiful!
TFS - congratulations!
Have a great sunday!
gilou530 (34) 2010-03-21 5:06
une image donc tu as le secret de trouver des endroits plein de charme et d'intéret, super cadrage dans ce format carré
jlbrthnn (76037) 2010-03-21 5:07
Under this light, the colors of the sky and castle are that of a painting of artist. I like the details of the composition, in particular this branch on the ground which adds poetry and nostalgia. Pretty and good realization. Cheer.
Have a nice sunday
pierrefonds (68103) 2010-03-21 5:46
The trees and the fence are framing well the castle. The poit of view is allowing me to see the details and colors of the architecture of the castle. The luminosity is bringing out the fall colors. Have a nice day.
orme (7219) 2010-03-21 7:13
I like how you have framed this shot with the trees on either side.
I also like how 'wild' nature is dominant in this composition, in comparison with the 'orderly' symmetric architecture.
anokutan (15097) 2010-03-21 7:23
Hello John ,
This is a well balanced composition , with the building perfectly placed between the trees . Very beautiful photo of this idylic castle.
gunbud (34066) 2010-03-21 9:47
Beautiful country home that is surrounded by lovely autumn colors.
The sky and trees contrast brilliantly in this very peaceful image.
resat1972 (7576) 2010-03-21 10:40
a magnificent palaces, gardens and the colors were very beautiful piece of broken branches.
COSTANTINO (66531) 2010-03-21 11:28
excellent scene with the castle
surrounded by this beautiful nature.
Fis2 (100668) 2010-03-21 11:51
A very interesting castle.
Curious POV and composition.
Good colors and light.
Bluejeans (64251) 2010-03-21 12:00
Ola John ,
Lindos estes castelos do norte da Europa , este tem uma bonita fachada da frente cheia de janelas , um belo lugar para viver , bom primeiro plano com este campo relvado e a árvore , boas cores e luz , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
Hansaphotos (8253) 2010-03-21 14:02
Very well composed image of the "unknown castle". You balance your composition very well with the tree and dead branch in the foreground and castle in the background. The colours are excellent and so is the framing. Excellent work! Thanks for sharing. Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling
raszid62 (18515) 2010-03-22 1:28
Cool, a small castle surrounded by a park in autumn. Great colors and sharpness.
pasternak (15185) 2010-03-22 3:32
Nice view of this castle, excellent composition with the fallen branch in the FG...
mesutilgim (95800) 2010-03-22 5:36
Another perfect architectorial capture with a wonderfull landscape.
Your technical skill and the "product" does not need any further notes. It's absolutely selfexplanatory !
TFS and have a nice week
hdl (7035) 2010-03-22 5:45
Dag John, heel mooie herfstfoto. Vooral het perspectief doet het hier. Hoewel het kasteel zeker niet op de voorgrond staat, wordt je aandacht er toch direct naartoe getrokken; knap staaltje fotografie. Het verbaast me dat je dit nog niet getoond had. Ik kan je ook niet verder helpen met de naam, maar het komt me wel niet onbekend voor (maar ja, er zijn er nog wel meer gebouwd in die stijl). Echt een heel mooie capture
John_F_Kennedy (43669) 2010-03-22 5:57
A very interesting perspective to the castle. I like the autumnal colours between the tress. Well done.
gilbertom (2426) 2010-03-22 6:08
This old Castle, and the colored trees behind it, gives a special composition to the picture.
Nice shot, my friend!
Silvio1953 (146643) 2010-03-22 7:04
Ciao John, wonderful composition with beautiful castle, splendid natural ambientation, great light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2010-03-22 7:08
great perspective and you have presented it beautifully. Great light and natural colours. Like the red tree behind the castle. Very well composed with the dry stem in FG. Tfs.
Have a nice week.
Longroute (19396) 2010-03-22 8:13
A good picture speaks by itself! (:-)
There is a fine autumn atmosphere here and a feeling of a secluded and deserted place. I guess the photo has been shot late in the evening because the light is dim and so you got soft and warm colours. A charming and well balanced composition, which does justice to this lovely castle.
Nicou (145150) 2010-03-22 8:16
merveilleuse iamge, que rose sur cette belle amison, blottie dans la nature dans un cadre végétatif, superbe compo.
bravo et amitié
peppe59 (14555) 2010-03-22 9:18
toujours bien soignées tes splendides photos, celle-ci a une lumière gagnante mais sans rinunziare jamais à la netteté et aux couleurs. Tu complimentes et bonne semaine.
pajaran (62506) 2010-03-22 9:30
Pogled preko pale grane sa drveta, livade i ograde vodi nas na lep dvorac, lepe boje i fotografija.
Mirno mesto okruzeno drvecem, lepo za odmor u tisini, svidja mi se, dobro ste ga prikazali.
Prijatno popodne i lepo prolecno vreme za odmor, zeli vam Paja.
Kijkend door de afgevallen takken van bomen, hekken en weiden leidt ons naar het prachtige kasteel, mooie schilderijen en foto's.
Een rustige plek omgeven door bomen, een mooie vakantie in stilte, net als ik, goed je weer te geven.
Een gezellige middag en een leuke Prolecno tijd voor de vakantie, wil je Paja.
Good day afternoons.
Looking through the fallen branches from trees, fences and meadows leads us to the beautiful castle, beautiful paintings and photographs.
A quiet place surrounded by trees, a nice vacation in silence, like me, well you display it.
A pleasant afternoon and a nice Prolecno time for the holiday, you want Paja.
Gerrit (52097) 2010-03-22 10:23
prachtig kasteeltje in een wondermooie setting.
Hele goede compositie,
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2010-03-22 11:19
Maybe unknown but, as usual in your pics, a great view. That trees and the castle in the end create a lovely compo.
JCG (35129) 2010-03-22 12:33
Une architecture bien typique de la région et une demeure qui doit être très lumineuse à l'intérieur compte tenu du nombre de fenêtres. Très joli cadrage sur l'environnement mettant bien en valeur ce château, les couleurs automnales sont agréables et harmonieuses. Une vie à la campagne qui doit être bien plaisante, merci John.
Avec toutes mes amitiés et une très bonne soirée,
J_Burke (1285) 2010-03-22 12:56
The sharpness throughout the picture is impressive, i like how the shot is framed by the tree on the left side. Excellent POV and well balanced. The colours are captured wonderfully too. TFS
Waylim (25502) 2010-03-22 21:06
Not one of you best, but still a very nice shot, good composition overall. the broken tree branche kind of got in the way, the color of the tree behind the castle blended in too much to the castle. the light is a bit difficult, but you managed it just fine. Still better than most, but not your best.
ciakgiak (30431) 2010-03-23 1:43
the view of the castle in a such spectacular landscape is fantastic. The colors are so vivid but natural at the same time. You choosed the perfect POV to enjoy of a similar scenery, the quality is excellent as always.
francio64 (39888) 2010-03-23 5:46
ottimo formato quadrato per questa bella immagine di questa villa immersa in tanta natura.
Ottimo il gioco di luci ed ombre.
Vasa (515) 2010-03-23 12:23
This photo also must have 100 points. This is your level John. The scene from St Andries is a new star in your gallery. Many thanks friend,
pablominto (53746) 2010-03-23 23:39
This is a fine autumnal setting for the lovely castle, with the golden foliage and the leaves on the ground!
Good lead-in across the lawn, fine details in the medieval architecture...
Hopefully spring has arrived by now, after this rather harsh winter..!
xuaxo (6846) 2010-03-24 10:37
Excelent composition of trees and nice architecture.
Despite some colours, this autumn picture seems in summer
Alco (7483) 2010-03-24 11:31
Nice point of view on that castle.Beautiful architecture.The color of the walls matches perfectly with the colors of the fall leaves.Great sharpness and very nice colors.Very well done.
TopGeo (38216) 2010-03-24 13:06
Hi John! A perfect idea! A building this castle in natural beauty. I like the point of view! Good composition with the framing tree on the left contributing to the sense of depth! autumnal colours under a excellent light. Very good sharpness. A very interesting perspective to the castle. I like the autumnal colours of tress and BG of castle. Well done.
Dyerco (10185) 2010-03-25 3:36
This composition really suits the square format. The mansion is well placed in the scene and the fallen branch provides FG interest.
mauro61 (52857) 2010-03-25 4:34
composta molto bene l'immagine ha il suo punto di forza nei colori e nella lunga inquadratura.
Il tronco a terra in FG è la bella nota in più,
complimenti e un abbraccio
Budapestman (82620) 2010-03-25 9:28
a picturesque atmosphere, the composition of the photo is very nice, picturesque details and colours, superb realization as usual, Tfs! Have a nice day! Kellemes napot kívánok!
Charo (51212) 2010-03-25 16:37
A beautiful autumn picture with great color contrast. More than a castle, like a small palace with a magnificent architecture.
Excellent light and perspective.
baddori (20151) 2010-03-25 17:01
La tua cura dei dettagli è ammirevole.
Foto come al solito inseribile in un mondo globale ...tranquillo ed ordinato.
Un altro gioiello nella tua galleria
siolaw (38292) 2010-03-25 22:51
Well composed image with nice castle in the back and fallen branch catching the eye in the foreground. Good contrast level despite the absence of direct sunlight.
AiresSantos (56155) 2010-03-26 5:23
Unknow but very beautiful castle !
And I also like a lot the colors and how you handled the light
Have a great weekend
papagolf21 (103764) 2010-03-26 5:31
Bonjour, mon bon ami John,
L'inconnu augmente le mystère et la beauté des lieux !
Je remarque que la tempête a également sévi dans la région.
Une bien belle image qu'il fallait absolument nous montrer. La composition est emplie de charme et de calme.
diomed (13926) 2010-03-26 9:03
wonderful composition, soft and enchanting colours, excellent framing, amazing diagonal between the tree on FG and the castle, lovely architecture, attractive sky.
riclopes (35577) 2010-03-27 2:34
Olá John, very nice framing for the lovely castle with unknown name. It makes it more misterious and attractive :) Love the autumn tones contrasting with the soft blue of the sky. That yellow tree behind the building is especially eye catching.
Have a nice weekend,
s_lush (16410) 2010-03-27 6:34
This small castle and its surrounding look very impressive, so many words in the note are not needed. The colors are simply beautiful here, especially those of the sky. Wonderful and top-quality image!
jlynx (12647) 2010-03-31 4:05
long since I have not seen so precisely composed picture. There is no dissonance here, everything in this photo each interacts. The first is a perfectly fine-tuned the plan and further plans for this photograph. The whole enclosed in a square law gives a lot of opportunity to speak this image. Wonderful colors is here with a predominance of green in a quiet off-brown and red. You put the correct object on the background of clear sky. This solution makes the surrounding green area is the natural frame for this unknown palace. Very nice job moving the imagination. A beautiful show of fantastically good and mature photos.
Have a nice day,
janusz2054 (2) 2010-04-21 7:57
That is very nice presentation of the splendid castle between the trees.
The colours and captured are wonderful.
danos (99816) 2012-11-02 2:04
Good morning John,
nice the view as the presentation of the old building on the far end of the scene, with the left side trees to make the scene even more effective.
I like the light and the colour management as the beauty of the image.
Have a good day,Danos
fabbs99 (17167) 2012-11-05 11:11
Nice old castle having an excellent composition with some lovely colors coupled with nice light management and presentation.The shot is simple but having excellent sharpness and clarity.Very well done, TFS.
ourania (47784) 2013-08-17 8:26
the castle is lovely and interesting, it looks very attractive and imposing despite the discreet place it holds in the scenery and in your composition. I like very much the many windows and the drawn curtains that should allow the soft, romantic autumn light enter its many rooms. I love the autumn colours and the romantic and mildly melancholic atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
mcmtanyel (24567) 2015-08-13 21:55
It is a very nice mansion, though the groundskeeper has been sleeping on the job. That fallen tree branch needs to be cleared out. They must have had a storm recently.
