The city of Braubach has an antiquity of 725 years and she is in the heart of Germany, where there join the rivers Rhine and Mosel and Lahn.
Braubach, the town vinícola and of the roses, is the most northerly of the towns that arose in the vales along the bank of the Rhine. It is characterized by his houses with the frontages entramadas and his alleys. The town surrounds falciformemente the hillock Burgberg and the castle Marksburg.
The castle Marksburg is characterized by his place and by his unassailable construction. Of all the castles placed in the high places of the mounts along the average Rhine, it is the only one that has come intact until our days.
Monument of the warrior:
This tower construída with old stones, it is located in the public garden of Braubach and remembers the fallen citizens of Braubach in the wars of 1870/71 and 1914-18.
Two WS with these architectures separately.

muy buena composition. buena DOF vertical, con el castillo en la punta de la colina en perfecto foco. Me gusta los coloures suaves y el contraste con el cielo

This is a great shot including the monument and castle. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. The deep blue sky forms a nice backdrop for the castle.

Nice work, I love the fact that the main motive on a steep hill, creating some suspense. The little tower contributes much to the composition. Nice colors, sharpness and clarity.

Hello Charo. This lovely landscape is worth seeing. I was of course several times in this area, however only on the Marksburg. Your photo shows an in any case wonderful view to this romantic landscape. Very beautifully. Informative text. Best regards, Wolfgang.

Very nice well balanced composition. Good juxtaposition between foreground tower and the castle on the hill. Very nice light and colours and excellent clarity.

This is a superb composition with the two main subjects well placed in this scene. The exposure is right on as it would be esay to blow out the castle. Well done.

Magnifique cette vieille tour et les deux arbres qui ne semblent pas jeunes eux aussi. Belle prise de vue et bonne composition avec le château sur la montagne. Beau travail et bon rendu des couleurs.
Bravo!... et bonne fin de journée,

difficult light and well kept clarity and sharpness for a good postcard view. The gate tower is well placed to balance the castle and fine framed by both trees. Did you make a try with a different f-stop/shutter speed combination?
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Beautiful old castle seen proudly sitting atop the steep hill contrast wonderfully with the vivid blue sky. The old foreground tower is another fine element to this photo.

Le point de vue est parfait pour montrer à la fois les deux construction historiques. La réalisation de la photo est parfaite tant en cadrage qu'en exposition. Un joli travail.
Bonne journée et bon week-end

There are many interesting places along the Rhine with examples of the most impressive medieval architecture!
The location of this great castle is typical and well captured with the blue sky as a lovely background...
The inclusion of the strong foreground interest adds value to this fine composition!
