I have never been to this region and yet Bacharach sounds familiar I don't know why.
Great location of this castle on top of the hill with the church just below. Your reportage really encourages me to visit this region someday.
Very well done,

Superb composition, this very ideal location, on the Rhine, with the waters of the river in the foreground, the image shows fine, its magnificent church tower and the impressive castle on the top of the mountain, that looks lovely, surrounded by abundant trees, beautiful sky contributes to the success of the image.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.

this place is beautiful and fascinating. The castle on the hill looks very impressive and imposing, we also get a glimpse of the grand cathedral and the picturesque town. The river in the foreground and the luscious hills provide a marvelous context. A clear and very interesting view. The colours are lovely and the atmosphere romantic and dramatic. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

A wonderful image of these densely wooded steep hills along the river side.
The church tower points nicely to the castle on the top.
Nice alternation of light and shade on the greenery.
Best regards, Paul

The forest is framing well the castle and the city. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the buildings. The luminosity is giving a good rendering to the colours. Have a nice day.

bella composizione, partendo dal fiume, si sale alla chiesa e poi su fino al castello.
Un ottimo pov, che ci da un senso generale sul posizionamento del luogo.

Excellent up to nice church and the the castle on the top of green hill. The ship has given you a perfect viewpoint. The scenery is in excellent light and nice color contrast.
Very well done.

Super Pov, on to this gorgeous Castle, and the town of Bacharach.
My wife and I have done this trip staying on the boat a fantastic area of Germany.
Well managed, Tfs,

A splendid picture with a lovely panoramic view on these area.
The river, church and castle make the picture wonderful, also the clouds to the sky be superb.
Very well composition, nice presentation, TFS.
Have a nice day,

I have a feeling that I have seen this castle from the Rhine. I will have to scrutinise my archives!
The castle is very well situated and your pov uses the church spire as a very good guide. Fine composition with pleasing horizontal layers of differing colours and textures. The dense woodland, with its varied green hues, is particularly effective.
Have a lovely day,

There are indeed an abundance of castles along the Rhine. This picture also shows an impressive church and a pleasant view along the river.

Germans are well known for their zeal in preserving natural resources. Good capture of this castle surrounded by green forest. Nice pov and good details. Well done, tfs.

I see that the weather is as good as it gets in central/northern Europe. Refreshing, lush greens mixed with sunshine is the picker-upper of the human soul. Excellently rendered!
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-04-02 23:22
very lovely view taken from properly chosen POV to ensure wide framing. I love the architecture shown: the church's tower peeking over the trees and the castle above it. The river included in the composition adds very nice element to the whole image. Pretty and natural colors and perfect sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy a day ahead

A nice juxtaposing of the fg church spire and the bg hilltop castle with the fg Rhine River adding depth. Nice repetition of the flags along the riverbank at left. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. Good to see the thickly wooded hills and greenery. Have a nice weekend!
jcpix (13820) 2014-04-03 15:53
A seemingly never-ending bounty of picturesque scenes up and down the river...and this is certainly no different. You must have filled up the memory card with pure joy. :) I might even think there's almost too much to see...how in the world can you ever concentrate on one thing at a time? lol I really like the softer shades of light gently touching the hillsides, letting us know the sun is out there amongst the clouds. Beautiful color and detail as usual. Another can't miss attraction, captured and presented ideally. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
kato (11630) 2014-04-03 23:23
You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the historical village with the church with spire and a row of old house along the calm Rhine, and the castle on hill with the lush green. It's a tasteful landscape.
Miguel82 (26869) 2014-04-05 9:03
Ike, a beautiful panorama of Rhine river, a tower of church, fluvial boats, the green forest on the hill and houses with roofs made with slate, good pov, a brillant picture, good saturday
UlfE (14641) 2014-04-06 11:37
A really fine composition with the castle on top of the hill in focus and the Church beneath it is an extra bonus. I note that you had some luck with the weather here and the lighting is indeed very good here. Seems to be a popular place. I note that there are three jetties where boat could stop. TFS and havea fine week!
Didi (59144) 2014-04-07 0:26
Nice view indeed
Lights are strong
The view in in East direction, the best way is to wait between 17:00 and 18:00 for more soft lights
But it's not simple to manage your time
dip (23872) 2014-04-15 7:31
Bacharach is indeed a beautiful place,I like the chosen point of view and the composition,
thanks for sharing,
jmdias (59190) 2014-06-04 6:51
a very beautiful view with that castle and the church in evidence in the middle of this green area. nice job.
berek (44363) 2014-10-15 20:13
Dear Ike , Good morning.
A nice overview of the church and the castle on the mountain well around the green vegetation good point of view from the river
danos (91070) 2015-08-18 1:02
great the view as the presentation of the castle on the top of the hill with the church on the bank of the river.The verdant hill between them make the image even more effective.
