Baroque Schloss Benrath located at Benrath a suburb of Duesseldorf. The castle was built between 1755 and 1780 by architect Nicholas de Pigege for Charles Theodore, Prince-Elector, Count Palatine and Duke of Bavaria. It is surrounded by a beautiful park. This is the backside of the main building, called corps de logis. The long rectangular pond is called Spiegelweiher (mirror pond) because when there is absolutely no wind you can see the reflection of the castle on it.

You chose a very well angle with the lake before the Schloss Benrath with the ducks together in foreground
You show us a wonderful sharp and clear picture.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

Your POV is well chosen here using the pond to lead the eye into the scene while the trees frame the castle. Too bad the wind prevented a reflection but the ducks are a nice plus. The lighting is fine and the photo has fine color and sharpness.
