With last photo I’ve presented the roof of Swiss Laufenburg. In this photo you can see the houses in German Laufenburg which situated on the other side of Rhine River.
The end of connecting old stone Rhine River Bridge can be seen in the lower right corner. Usually there are no passport controls on the bridge.
The water of Rhine River has brown and not the usual green-blue color. This color change was caused by heavy rains during past few days.
In the background is the protestant church with nice clock tower. The larger and older Parish Church of St. Oswald and Pelagius, which is situated at the left side on the hill 38 meters above the town, is not visible in this photo.
It is also interesting to mention that Laufenburg has two railway stations on opposite sides of the Rhine River, one belonging to DB-German Railways) and one to SBB-Swiss Railways.
The Swiss station has direct trains every hour from Basel Swiss Main Train Station. The German station has direct trains every hour from Basel German Station and from Waldshut.
The roads leading to Laufenburg also go along the banks of the Rhine with beautiful view on both sides. Nearby airports are Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg EuroAirport (47km) and Zürich-Kloten International Airport (64km).

Another excellent capture in your gallery! Again, the high POV works very well here to show us beauty of this fantastic place. Great sharpness and level of details were achieved. TFS!

Nice colors and lighting in this photo. Very nice composition with the roofs and natural setting of the river in the background. The set is very interesting.

Je crois bien que c'est ma première visite par l'image dans ce petit village allemand.Un très bon point de vue qui le montre dans son ensemble et qui le situe bien sur le bord de la rivière.

This is a terrific view of the very charming and picturesque town. We don't really see the streets from this POV, but instead we see the roofs of two lines of houses along the sides of the view. I like the effect of how your lens has packed the houses very tightly together. I also like the view of the rather muddy river curving along the town and the contrasts of the light brown, dark green and rusty red.

splendid cluster of houses, all with the same red roofs. Very nice composition.

It's an excellent panorama and quite a huge view with the old characterful town by the river grabs attention as main attraction. I can appreciate the much details rendered here, taken from vantage point, exposure works fine offering subtle clarity, pin sharp and colouring is vivid with great overall contrast. A graceful shot thoughtfully taken, Congrats, TFS.

fascinating the view of the roofs of German Laufenburg that is established on the banks of Rhine river.The dense greenery on the baxckdrop with the brilliant light management enhance the vivid colours as the details of the scene.Well done.

Such beautiful buildings. This is again like a village from a fairy tale, I guess for me it's because I don't see this style of architecutre often. The light is falling all across the buildings in a very fine way, showing up do much detail in every element.
Thanks as always

Très jolie prise de vue plongeant notre regard avec ravissement sur la ville aux façades colorées et aux toits à pentes fortes. La vue du fleuve augmente la beauté d'ensemble.
Photo très appréciée.

Salut cher Miro
A marvellous high POV of this delightful town on the river. The colours and contrasts are very eye-popping. You achieved a superb definition and depth. I love the curve of the river and it's curious colour. Well done. Thanks for your words on the Reef. It's is a terrible crime being committed - and it's all supposedly legal.
ikeharel (60557) 2014-07-28 8:02
At first, Miro, I was sure this was bern, with the curve of the Ara river.. Than reading the note that beautifully describe the place, and the typical building style, realized the differrence.
excelent photojob from a prominent point above town.

Impressive view of this picturesque town the sharpness and depth are perfect, beautiful light, very well captured from a high POV
Cricri (109851) 2014-07-29 5:34
Tout bon le POV sur la ville et la rivière, beaucoup de détails et de jolies couleurs, un tout bien cadrer et présenter
Pas de souci pour les critiques, profiter bien de vos vacances

I like the overhead pov of this village. Beautiful architectures, nicely captured with sharp details. Well done, tfs.
ourania (34583) 2014-07-30 8:24
view and composition are exquisite, you used a very effective point of view from above, the layout is dynamic and elegant. I like very much how you divided the frame between town and river, the compact cityscape looks 3D and its details and colours are so attractive. I also like the sense of open space on the right and the bold, natural colours that make the scenery so vivid and atmospheric. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
npecanhuk (68306) 2014-08-01 13:58
Very beautiful, attractive and pleasant-looking picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

I like the pair of photos you've submitted from Laufenberg, here the incredibly dens field of roofs on the German side, along with the view of the Rhine. You had a perfect vantage point for both photos.
Have a good Sunday,
jcpix (13724) 2014-08-03 19:45
Hope you're out there having a great time right now! :)
A fine follow-up to your previous picture, this wider perspective still shows the compilation of rooftops, but also allows for the surroundings to play a part in the over visual...which also leads to a better understanding of scale.
A great position you've obtained, pulling together the town and river, as it snakes around the framework. Sharp in detail and focus, and the colors being enhanced by the sunlight make it all the more attractive. Continue to travel safe. Looking forward to the next. Take care.

Very nice capture of this medieval city in Germany.
Taken with good pov and light management.
Seeing the color of Rhine it seems you had heavy rainfalls there.
TFS and best regards

Your POV is well chosen giving us a nice overview of this pretty town. The river is used nicely to lead the eye through the shot. The church adds a nice point of interest for the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness.
