Photographer's Note

I am sure someone will point out here: “Why didn’t you show the wider view of this lovely place to incorporate more of the charming reflection!” I did it already, I have uploaded the full picture of this lovely view a while ago, to see it please click here. While checking my old pictures from Germany I came across this photo which was taken from a similar POV yet showing the towers a bit closer, and I really liked it. Having the red towers closer results in a nice contrast between the blue and more abundant red.
As mentioned in the note to the previous version, Malerwinkel in German may mean either a picturesque angle or a corner for painters both of the meanings are quite self explanatory when one sees the view. I have recently mentioned that Lubeck is sometimes called a town of seven spires. It does not mean that there are 7 churches there. The tiny island which hosts the old town had once many more towers but sadly not many survived until today. Two of the churches have two towers so we are talking about 5 beautiful churches with sharp spires. In my recent uploads I have showed two churches = three spires. Here we have three more towers: in the left, two towers of St. Marien Church and in the right: St. Petri Church.
