Bernkastel is one of the picturesque towns along the Mosel river. The old quarter typically built with these wooden houses. In one corner, beautifully mingled architecture-details, has an originally tilted built-houses, also shown on the attached WS from a diff. POV.
Best Strudel place was in this lovely town.
Location of the Rathouse square, where taken under my umbrella: 49.9155, 7.0758

Shalom Ike. Those cloudy days that also have substantial glare are a pain for a photographer, especially when one is presented with a shady foreground.The details of the buildings and life between them are clear and true in colour. Fascinating place that takes one back in time. regards. Klaudio.

Excellent detail architecture photo from German Rheinland. I like this type of housing, very typical for Rhineland (also South Germany) and also French Alcase. I like the tight crop, enabling to see all the nice details. Thanks for posting it.

You're capturing well these archichtectures by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the buildings with the wooden structure and unique design in medieval times. An outer wall seems to emphasize primary color contrast, and it's also impressive in many windows per building. It is visible to the simple and sturdy building showing German disposition.

The tilt is giving a certain charm to the houses. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colours of the architecture of the houses. The light is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

Buna zuia Ike,

ourania (18704) 2013-09-16 8:27
an effective composition with which you've managed to bring us very close to the buildings, show us clearly and thoroughly the elaborate architecture of the tall facades and give us an idea about the atmosphere of this picturesque town. Details and colours are interesting and agreeable despite the gloomy day. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
eldancer1 (20824) 2013-09-16 9:29
I like those old architectures, I think are more beautiful than the new ones. Nice capture of this tilted building with good details. There are a couple of high rise condos in Las Vegas that were built tilted also. Good lighting in spite of what looks like cloudy day. Well done, tfs.
cornejo (22568) 2013-09-16 9:55

Silvio1953 (105599) 2013-09-16 10:32
Ciao Ike, great view of lovely houses, excellent clarity, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Royaldevon (21517) 2013-09-16 12:00
I love how you have collected and shown the wonderful details of these quite amazing buildings. It is difficult not to feel disorientated when you look at them, with their curious angles! (I remember that feeling when I saw them a few years ago!)
This was a difficult composition but your inclusion of the three buildings has worked extremely well and there is a nice feeling of depth from the passageway created between the two f/g buildings.
My warm regards,
Kugart (1774) 2013-09-17 1:35
You have taken this shot from a very good angle showing three buildings in close proximity with each other and really capturing the atmosphere of the place, I almost feel as if I'm there. Lovely colours framing and perspective.
ChrisJ (91292) 2013-09-17 9:29
Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue and red with excellent shadow detail and a soft diffused light. Good graphism & splendid sharpness and framing. Perspective has been well managed here with the vertical in the centre dead even. Tfs!
adramad (30951) 2013-09-17 10:31
An image that is a luxury in this wonderful decoration of facades, great POV with these two houses on the street corner, framing the equally lovely we see ahead.
Good management of light and sharpness.
Have a good evening.
mcmtanyel (5295) 2013-09-17 11:11
Beautiful, intricately decorated houses. The light was definitely hard on your camera. I wonder if the sky could be painted blue with postprocessing or if it would look artificial that way.
jcpix (6596) 2013-09-17 20:47
Wow, how do they do it...cram so much beauty into one little street corner of town? :) An intriguing tight knit composition, almost overwhelming at first, but it only takes a second to appreciate what you've put together here. So much to admire with the stunning architecture and quaint cobbled streets on this compact arrangement. A lot of design, patterns, shapes, atmosphere...I love it! Picturesque for sure, and a feeling of that old world charm. Would love to be there now wandering around and soaking it all up. Have a great day ahead. Take care.
mkamionka (27089) 2013-09-18 4:44
beautiful architecture, well preserved. You have spoted a nice narrow street. The buildings come nicely close together. I like such busy compositions. Really pity that you had such a bad weather -the sky is a bit dull. It reminds me my day in Frankfurt, houses had quite similar style and the weather was the same. It impacts the colors as well. I bet it looks quite differently in undisturbed sunlight.
Very well done,
fabbs99 (11190) 2013-09-18 10:04
Nice bright colors and lots of structural designs on the buildings.Very well presented. Excellent composition with some lovely colors coupled with nice light management and presentation. TFS.
Regards ~ Farhat
jemaflor (74108) 2013-09-18 10:56
Interesting architecture well framed these old houses, good angle and vertical format.
UlfE (14140) 2013-09-18 12:52
A really fine architectural shot. The weather was not very good, but the houses and correctly exposed. Such weather and lighting conditions usually mean that the sky is a little bit over-exposed. This has no or very little significance for the impression of photo. Your photo is excellent as it is. TFS and a nice evening!
P.S. I enjoyed your reply regarding to change colour of the sky and I share your view completely.
nikkitta (9003) 2013-09-18 15:02
This kind of house are also very common in Alsace ( must be near)
Good to show details of the wooden ornaments from a good POV (lovely alley) at the back
And Strudel is one of my favorites desert
Congrats for taken such a good capture under an umbrella
Gigidusud (10302) 2013-09-19 13:57
Beautiful typical façades with nice details well framed. Well done!
emka (64182) 2013-09-19 23:06
Hi Ike, Very nice composition of these old half=timbered houses. Here in France I see also many similar construction (I love them ) but they are a bit different.Good shot with so many details to see. Warm regards Malgo
maloutim (9479) 2013-09-20 0:19
Germany is the best country to preserve its old buildings, or rebuild them exactly as they were originally !
Very good presentation of this fact here, with the sophisticated half-timbered houses.
I like the narrow house in the middle stuck in the little street between the bigger ones.
I wonder why they used to build tilted houses ? So that people could shake hands across the street :-)
Thanks for sharing and have a good day.
josepmarin (56489) 2013-09-20 8:26
I like this kind of traditional wooden architecture, which always offers us its great graphical wealth and its beauty.
A nice composition, in a good photo.
Cricri (92249) 2013-10-02 11:35
Un cadrage serré parfait sur ces immeuble aux détails et couleurs intéressante, belle complémentaire en WS
jmdias (48373) 2013-11-11 15:33
very beautiful slice of this urban landscape. I liked these details of architecture in many different buildings. nice framing and light even under hard conditions.
NorthernLight (1163) 2013-11-14 1:47
a medieval town center ideal for strolling. Despite the dark rainy weather very beautiful and interesting.
The picture pleases me well and makes me curious.
Have a great day
