Good Morning Everyone,
This is my second shot of the beautiful Mosel river but this time, we see the pretty town of Cochem.
Cochem is one of those places you just have to visit. It has lovely architecture, relaxing squares surrounded by cafes and bars, an abundance of flowers and an impressive castle, which stands at the very top of a riverside hill, guarding the approaches.
When we were there, there was a vibrant market and lots of the local winemakers had their produce to sample. What better way to chose which wines you are going to buy as presents!
Have a lovely day, Bev :-)

Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

A marvellous blue sky. It would be a minor miracle to have a sky like this in China or Korea! Wonderful fg reflections in the river, & the triple domed church or clock-tower makes a superb focal point. Good colour, sharpness & saturation. Tfs!

Beverley another nice very well composed image from Mosel. Great location. The vertical format allows us to see together the well captured old houses, church and the river water with nice reflections. The sky blue is a bit dark. Nicely done.

La diagonale que forme la rive dans l'image offre une très belle profondeur à l'image. Le village est de toute beauté et le cadrage lui rend bien justice.Une photo de très grande qualité.

Vivid and vibrant scenery, Beverly. The place offer many photographic advantures.
i hate to say - but i think the tower is leaning like in Pisa... maybe i am wrong about.
Great compo., pleasent to see such a place along the river.

Good evening dear Bev
What a great choice of vertical frame you made. I think most would have opted for the landscape format. Instead I think you have obtained alot more depth and also captured more of those magnificent reflections. Lovely natural colours and fascinating architecture. Personally, and this just a matter of personal taste, I would have composed the shot with the church steeple off-centre rather than in the middle. But as I said, this is a personal taste thing where how you've composed it is not "wrong" at all.

Wonderful place with very beautiful architectural details in all those buildings!
Very attractive and interesting picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, black borders, chosen pov and composition with lovely reflections are all excellent here too!
TFS - congrats,

Nice pov, a composition well balanced with the tower, perfect light management for contrast and colors, just a little tilt ...
SWEETFREEDOM (19902) 2012-05-14 10:20
characteristic town, nice house facades and colors. good light.

I'm pleased that you were able to get off the boat and visit this fine place - for a moment I thought that you had just steamed past - that would have been an awful loss not to have visited this lovely place.
A very fine composition indeed and with some lovely vibrant colours and lots of detail and interest. The seafront looks to be bustling with activity too. And nothing like a little winetasting to give you your sealegs!

I am back after my vacation.
Perfect and wonderful image, which show us this beautiful town, but fortunately I know your image and brings me good memories.
I love this composition vertical, from the beautiful waters of the river, with those glare and reflections, leads the eye to the splendor of the facades and the curious tower.
The high brightness and sharpness, gives great strength to this beautiful picture and makes us enjoy even more.
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice day.
All the best.
