This was an evening shot of the twin gates of Rothenburg. The photo is not tilted but the building in the middle is.
Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a town in the district of Ansbach of Mittelfranken (Middle Franconia), the Franconia region of Bavaria, Germany. It is well known for its well-preserved medieval old town, a destination for tourists from around the world. It is part of the popular Romantic Road through southern Germany.
Rothenburg was a Free Imperial City from the late Middle Ages to 1803.
On the left side is the Siebers-gate on the right the Kobolzeller-gate.
Photo was taken during a Christmas Markets tour in 2012.

Hi Asa. best time of day when the city acquires that special glow from the setting sun and the artificial light while the sky is still nicely defined. Wonderful atmosphere as if I have stepped into a fairytale. Regards. Klaudio.

splendida esposizione e bellissima composizione.
Le luci sono ben dosate e creano un bellissimo clima, le due torri dominano la scena, ma sono molto belle anche le facciate.

A superb night capture . It looks like a village from a fairytale . Perfect composition and framing .

A nicely exposed composition featuring this pleasing Christmassy scene. I like the animated atmosphere and the warm / cool tonal contrasts. Very good sharpness for an ISO of 3200.
pierrefonds (55676) 2014-07-24 4:12
The presence of the people and of the cars is animating the scene. The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is hsowing the details and the colors of the towers and of the houses. Using an ISO of 3200 has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Germany has a lot of these nice fairy tale villages, certainly in the evening or the night
Middle of the winter, but you took a very nice picture, your light and street view are pleasant to look at.
Nice depth and perspective picture.
Excellent composition, nice presentation, also pleasant of colours.
Very well done, TFS.

Nice photo with "timbered houses" and the lighted towers. Very nice composition and perfect exposure that allow us to appreciate fine details all well contrasted. The sharpness is good too. I do not know this German town, but it really looks nice. Best regards.

Une très belle photo à l'heure bleue. J'aime bien la teinte que prennent les lumières à cette heure du jour,.J'aime aussi les maisons à colombages, même celle qui penche un peu.

nice the view of this ection of the town during the evening light with the lights to turn on making the scene even more effective.The two gates in the same photo and the timbered house in the middle are excellent presented.

Fine view of classical Rothenburg, enhanced by the twilight and golden light highlights, with the cobblestone street, half-timber architecture, and the dominate gate tower.
I enjoyed visiting and staying several nights here a few years before this.
Thanks for sharing,
emka (75011) 2014-07-24 18:31

Hi Asa, Beautiful blur hour scenery of these twin gates captured with great POV. The length of the street gives sense of depth to the composition. Interesting houses and the people add life to the scene. Thank for sharing
bema (26289) 2014-07-26 12:40
Hi dear Asa,
"the Plönlein", so this outlook is called in German, and it describes the small building in the middle (the tilted one); a real fascinating postcard motive at all, i´ve seen it with my own eyes several years before, but not in such a charming light!
thanks for sharing, see you around, cheers Bernd
ktanska (24398) 2014-07-27 4:31
Excellent viewpoint for showing those old gates on different levels. That old town looks fantastic and I'm sure it is especially romantic at christmas time with all those decorations. I like warm glow of those lights. A little later blue hour light would be even better I think.
Silvio1953 (118187) 2014-07-27 5:34
Ciao Asa, great view of fascinating gates, excellent exposure, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio
ikeharel (54087) 2014-07-27 6:17
Marvelous dusk scenery on the beautiful town, Asa.
Old architecture's is lit fabulousely, and from position taken we see the two towers which are very similar in style.
When we were there it was pouring rainy day, and we did not get this far side from the center. Almost not noticed the tilted house, only when reading the note.
Fine photo, charming lights.
Graal (95974) 2014-07-27 7:47
very nice old town in Bayern. I like the 1st lights in windows and details of architecture. Good presentation.
Have a nice new week.
Cricri (102973) 2014-07-28 10:30
Très belle réalisation a heure bleu, magnifique avec les éclairages artificielles, le POV sur les deux tours, très belle présentation
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-07-28 14:19
The curving cobblestone road adds fantastic lead in lines. Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue grey and yellow colours. The people add scale and animate the scene. The arch through the bg building reminds me of the old 'rathaus' in Munich! Tfs!
adramad (36261) 2014-07-30 8:56
A superb composition of this wonderful place, which seems like a fairytale city, perfect pretty facades and the two towers, and with night lighting, put a great charm to the image.
Nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I like it
Enjoy a nice day.

LOVELY HOUSES AND LOVELY LIGHT..WELL DONE...

Charming street view,perfect composition and framing, beautiful light and atmosphere.
All the best,
ourania (28278) 2014-08-02 5:55
you are presenting this fine urban scenery in a well considered composition that uses an attractive perspective and fills the frame with interest. I like very much the rhythmical alternation of patterns and details across the frame. You achieved great clarity and exalted the effects of both the natural and the artificial lights. The colours are delightful and the atmosphere heart-warming. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
SWEETFREEDOM (21994) 2014-08-02 23:05
very good exposure and natural colors. good details and interesting building.
ahmet54 (3039) 2014-08-03 3:31
great shot of this romatic medieval city. I like those decorated and lit half-timbered houses. I have been there only two times. Last visit is 38 years ago. I think I have to go there once again.
Thanks for showing.
adores (35040) 2014-08-03 16:09
Good scene with the buildings already illuminated and everything decorated for Christmas. It's a very beautiful street with many nice old buildings and you captured very well the atmosphere.
mayjayne (3171) 2014-08-07 22:20
Superb light management and sharpness, which is difficult during the blue hour. I like the glow that you have created in this composition.
stego (23578) 2014-08-08 13:58
The POV looks the better one could imagine of that wonderful place. The light and colours, with that mix of natural light and artificial lights is beuatiful.
Tue (27374) 2014-08-09 13:22
Such a lovely view of this charming village. I love the golden light in the shop windows and the towers. Good composition too.
Angshu (55035) 2014-08-20 0:43
Nice light and effect of the street lights as well. The dual perspective has been well shown from this POV leading our eyes to the two gates at two different levels.
mkamionka (29732) 2014-08-20 5:20
great time of the day. it seems they illuminate the town quite early and you have well used this opportunity here. Nice perspective showing two gates on two different levels it works quite surprising when one think about it.
I had a pleasure to visit this wonderful town long time ago. It seems to be one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe. And the Christmas shop is open there all year round :)
bona (12387) 2014-09-02 7:31
nice photo of this village. When I think about germany and other close countries the imagine that came in my mind is like that you show here. The characteristic architecture, the colors, the cold weather.
thanks for share.
boa (5845) 2014-09-18 11:20
there are a beautiful light and a pleasant mood in this scene. It looks like you have captured a part of the soul from Rothenburg ob der Tauber with the beautiful illuminated architecture at Christmas time(but no snow)A sharp and clear shot, tfs!
Have a nice evening/
ecmel (1127) 2014-09-25 8:05
An excellently composed of this medieval old town. The artificial lights on buildings are enhancing the picture.My compliments.
Hansaphotos (6541) 2014-10-01 8:09
What an excellent shot. A fairy tale place. Well chosen lighting and a great choice of POV. Beautiful architecture and a nice effect of thet tilted house. Excellent! TFS.
pamastro (7288) 2014-10-09 21:32
Good point of view for both gates. Both streets angle nicely from here to direct us around the scene. I love all the buildings that all seem to tilt and their own angles, including the two towers. It has a cartoonish feel of an idyllic old village scene. I wonder how the scene would look if you were in the center, along the railing, if the split would look stronger. Although the way the two roads converge from this point creates a strong feeling of two different places mashed together, which I like.
