You're capturing well this architecture by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the facade of the Heidelberg castle with the general and the animal. It looks like an art work as the whole. It's the magnificent integration of architectute with good design and sculpture.

The point of view is showing the details and colors of the facade of the Heidelberg castle. It is clear and sharp. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Nice capture of this very interesting facade. Your close up allows us to see the fine detail of this wonderful building. Lovely colour tones of the stonework, great lighting and clarity.

The soft stone colour is very remarkable and makes the view very attractive.
A clear and sharp presentation of this facade with all its statues and architectural decorations.
Best regards, Paul

I like the way you opened up the perspective, showing us a good part of this magnificent facade, and how you didn't allow any distractions into the frame. The light had become quite bright after the rain brightening up the lighter coloured areas but you've rendered comprehensive and interesting details all over. There's so much to read on this facade, it looks like a history book. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
PS Thank you for your help once again!

Fine up close zoomed in view of a chunk of Heidelburg Schloss, detailing the evocative heroic statues and lion heads within the rosy stones, and all in excellent resolution.

I like that stone color Ike, a fine facade with statues, beautiful architecture details, high definition and good light, another interesting report from your stay in western Germany and Alsace, all the best, have a good start of week
UlfE (14128) 2013-10-21 11:22
Certainly a magnificient facade, but not easy to capture perfectly Whatever you do the there are parts of the adornment that are outside the frame provided that you do not take photo from a position straight ahead of the building. I think you have an excellent photo job here. A photo taken from the side much more attractive and you have kept essential parts of the adornment within the frame. TFS and have fine week!

Haha....often it's all about the timing! :) Glad the skies allowed a brief moment of clarity, and it's good to know you took advantage of the opportunity. Sometimes castles, buildings, sculptures, etc. are just too big to fit in the frame, or too large that this type of detail gets lost in the wide view. A wise composition which gives us a closer look at the smaller aspects and beauty of the castle and its exterior elements. I really like the salmon/rose coloring of this stone, and the tones from the statues are a nice compliment. Very good use of your limited availability on site, a very nice result despite the overcast and rainy conditions. Have a great day ahead.

This has to be one of the beautiful buildings Heidelberg with the light hitting the decorative facade revealing the exotic detail so superbly. Interesting architecture and great details have greatly contributed to this impressive shot coupled by well balanced colors. Stunning shot, a pleasure to view. Well done.
mkamionka (27065) 2013-10-22 5:15
I see you did not have a good weather indeed. Colors are quite often affected -everything becoming pale, faded out... That is what I suffer living in Ireland and now UK :(
It is still a great presentation of the beautifully decorated architecture.
Thanks for sharing, it is really inviting to visit it someday.

What a place Ike, happy the rain stopped letting you enjoy the place and take some photos,
Like the way you concentrated in some part of the facade in diagonal way
Great details of the statues and lions
eldancer1 (20750) 2013-10-23 7:43
One of the things I like about old buildings are their ornate facades in addition to them being more durable than the modern ones. Nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.
gervaso (9247) 2013-10-25 3:38
Interesting capture of the beautiful architectural details of this building! Very good colors and sharpness! Beautiful composition! Well done!
clic (12465) 2013-10-25 13:22
If this is the inner yard so richly decorated, what look like the outer walls that escaped to thunderbolts attacks in such high altitude!
A feast for a sculptor's eye!

Hi Ike, I was more fortunate with the weather in my last trips. magnificent facade of the Heidelberg castle, I like the pink colour and the statues. excellent composition. Splendid architecture, they knew how to build beautifully.
delpeoples (48582) 2013-10-26 21:55
I really like this type of photo where the sky is completely cropped out, which allows us to concentrate on the remarkable architectural details. The rain has had the effect of accentuating the colours. A lovely shot, nice work.

From Yarkon River, Tel Aviv to Heidelberg in one day, that is what I like about photography - it allows you to relive your memories over and over. Nice detail on the facade, I can see it is still wet in places.
