In my area there is the so-called Karlsaue. I am often there - in every season. Now in the winter everything is covered with snow. The temple in the middle of a pond is of course a photo opportunity - like many times before.
"The Karlsaue Park is a public and inner-city park of 1.50 km ² in Kassel (Northern Hesse, Germany) It was redesigned as a landscape garden in 1785 and Consists a mixture of visible Baroque garden elements and arranged." natural areas ".

This is a very clever composition, juxtaposing the twisted branches of the tree with the temple. The snow covered field and the cool tones evoke a cold winter's day. A fine presentation, I like it.

Ah here you are in your favorite place
We know it at each season but this one is again a splendid one, naturally and originally framed by the tree at FG
The delicate winter light and blue-gray colors are beautiful and bring serenity to the compo
Bravo, have a nice day

Such places are attractive.
I have places in my village which seem to draw me to them!
I love how you have used the tree trunk to make a very original and textured frame through which we see the temple, strongly positioned. The small patches of green stand out beautifully in this otherwise monochrome shot.
Have a lovely day,

Guten mittag Wolfgang,
Lovely quiet picture with a wonderful feeling through the dark tree in foreground and small house in background.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
What a splendid view about these area.
Composition and presentation are pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.
Einen schönen tag,

Cet arbre fait presque de l'acrobatie pour attirer ton regard et malgré tout, il nous laisse découvrir le beau paysage neigeux derrière.

Love the wintry mood here. Good use of this graphic tree for your composition. I like how the little temple is nestled like that.

I love this shot Wolfgang - it is both creative and beautiful. I recognise the temple from previous shots but this one is exceptional. Initially, it is the detailed branch which catches the eye as it stands so well against the snowy ground. It is only later that we see the wonderful background with the delicate lacy branches and the green roofed building. Wonderful work. A pleasure to see. Warm regards rosemary

you have composed this very well to create a great foacl point of the temple which is perfectly sharp. you have used the branches in the foreground tree in a very imaginative way to add a further layer of interest and create depth to the image. a wonderful wonter scene with the snow on the ground. superb detail, depth and sharpness throughout.
have a lovely evening,

nice the Wintry scenery with the trunk of the tree to be a very nice and attractive foreground for the whole image.The presentation of the construction on the right, makes the image more effective.
Have a good day,Danos

erstaml ein gutes neues Jahr für Dich, ich glaube, ich war 2013 noch gar nicht auf Deiner Seite.
Ein schönes, gelungenes Foto, der Cyan-Ton unterstreicht die Kälte und der biszarre Baum sorgt für einen grafischen Vordergrund.

We have seen this little temple before here on TE and here you show us a very beautiful and natural work of art as an interesting foreground. It looks quite cold here but very calm and peaceful.

A well presnted image with the season captured well by the frozen, leafless tree. An almost monotonal shot except for the grren on the tree bark and the templed roof. The cold is portayed well by the overall colour temperature of the shot. Nice near-far effect createdd between tree and temple to give depth. Well composed.

love this! Almost monochrome and strangely that adds to the magic of this beautiful composition. Immaculate detail and DOF and the cold is palpable but embracing. Executed and presented superbly. Wonderful!
Regards - Brian.

Lovely pastel colours in your photo. The strong foreground element contrasting beautifully with the peaceful temple in the distance. Superb photo sir!

This is probably not the famous "blue hour", just the weak light of winter in northern Europe. Nature has provided an abstract sculpture to fill the foreground, the famous temple discreetly seen in the background. It is impressive that you can visit this park so many times and always find new angles for a photo.

Nice composition, with the temple in the background. Nice sharpness and management of depth of field.

Hello Wolfgang, I love this great shot of the beautiful and interesting composition of this beautiful postcard winter we offer here. A charming and interesting image, captured with very good technique and quality. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

Hi Wolf and my best wishes for the New Year.
I can only congratulate you for this exquisite shot.
I really admire the cold colours that are flirting with monochrome hues, with the exception of the green dome. There's an obvious quest for a clever composition with natural elements and the result is remarkable. I like the daring proportions, the way the space is organized and the sense of peacefulness. I am convinced that only your shutter broke the silence of that moment.
It is sometimes difficult to find the inspiration to shoot around our own area and I salute your initiative.

Nice temple framed by branches of the tree.
Excellent presented a cold winter's day.
ryno (6304) 2013-01-17 13:04
Hi Wolfgang, I like the simplicity of this one: the shape and form of the bough and the starkness of the dark wood against the pristine snow. Excellent light helps to illuminate the one colourful note, the green roof of the little building in the background. On the whole, a charming, eye-catching composition. Well done.

une très belle composition hivernale!
Très bon coup doeil!
Bravo pour l'originalité!

auch wenn der Baum die Aufmerksamkeit fesselt, so ist es doch der wunderbare Pavillon, der wieder die Hauptrolle spielt. Eine sehr schöne, überzeugende Komposition mit einer wunderbaren Stimmung - wie aus einem Märchen!

Am 14. Januar war ich am Ngapali beach in Burma, weit weg von Eis und Schnee.
Komposition und Technik sind perfekt hier und Dein Bild zeigt den Winter, den ich hasse von der schönsten Seite!!!!
Gruß und schönes Wochenende,
