Laufenburg is a beautiful little old town by a narrow curve of the river Rhine. Laufenburg was first mentioned in historic documents in 1207. This German municipality shares history with the Swiss town of Laufenburg on the southern side of the river. The two Laufenburgs were separated in 1802 when region south of the river was joined to Helvetic Republic.

That's a nice town, with colorful houses along the river.
Good composition too.

This is a very pretty bend in the river. I like your composition, everything in the frame belongs there and we are not left wondering what might be outside the frame. Light and color management of the photo are excellent and so is the DOF. An idyllic place captured with great technique, yielding an excellent photo. TFS.

A very nice water front view. Great composition balance. All the technical elements are very good. I like the sky, colors, and composition. As a comment: it looks like a great place to be, a boat ride would be so nice - some places are simply delightful, just like this one.

Hello Kari - Another beautiful view of this attractive town. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet thanks to the river that runs along the FG of the shot. What a perfect day to visit the town, the light, weather and colours all add to a pleasant scene. Warm regards Rosemary

Well now I'm torn between this and your last post!? :) I guess that's a good problem to have though, yes? This one may not have the hillside for a backdrop, but I do enjoy the wider view which shows the river bend around and follow the town. Loving the solid, more muted colors of the building exteriors combined with the rustic rooftops. A very pleasing composition that flows from left to right, and the ample blue sky is a nice compliment to the color scheme. Well controlled exposure with focus and sharp detail. A nice place to a slow ride. Thanks for sharing another beautiful view. Have a great day ahead.
All the best,

This is an extremely pretty view, and it looks just as neat and tidy and well kept as I imagine most German towns to be. I like the colours and the roofs of the houses. You have composed this nicely with trees framing the view on both sides. Whenever I see a road or a river in a photo I enjoy to see it disappear behind a bend, like here. This is technically perfect, with superb lighht and colours.

A lovely German village with different facades old and new as a whole. Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Also a nice panorama view about these area.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

You tell a really interesting story with your two photos of Laufenburg situated in two different countries. Looks like the town is a little more beautiful on the north side of the river or perhaps you found a better perspective and composition for this photo than for the previous one? TFS and have a nice evening!

Good sharpness, with excellent colour and saturation. Nice reflections in the river and I like the warm cold colour contrast between the blue sky and red roofs. The spire at left dominates the scene and makes a good focal point. Superb density and levels. Tfs!

Fine Rhein riverfront view of the classical buildings, in saturated colors and good resolution. Certainly one of the world's great river trips.

an excellent postcard type of scene, not sure if thats what you were going for here but it certainly would make for a nice postcard.
the exposure and lighting are spot on, and I really enjoy the composition, everything just seems to fit in correctly and is pleasing on the eyes.
