Assmannshausen is a picturesque small town along the Rhine river: 49.988, 7.865 on the map. The forest on the hills above town is part of the Niederwald, that stretch till Rudesheim, and the Ehrenfels Castle midway on its slope (Will show photos about this castle).

The town is beautiful with the typical architecture, and the German flag really stands out in the composition for its strong colors, which makes the picture much more interesting! Beautiful job!

I would have to agree, this is a rather picturesque stretch of town along the river. I would imagine this was taken from aboard the ship?? The heightened position helps give a wider view of the buildings and background hills...plus, you were able to get the German flag in the shot for added emphasis on locale. :) Nice, soft light and sharp detail has made for a pleasurable photo...it all looks quaint and welcoming. Have a great day ahead. Thanks for your notes today, appreciate the sentiment.

There's an abundance of therapeutic green in this photo. The warm colors of the German flag in the f/g complements the rest of the scenery well.

hello Ike, I do not remember this nice village. But I went for Rhine cruise thirty years ago. beautiful houses with half-timbered elements. Quite many people are waiting for the trip on the shore. Nice hills behin with vineyards.
I am afraid I will have the weather like you, it is raining :(.

Nice scene here from this little German town along the banks of the Rhine. Nice composition with the flags in the foreground and the green half forested hill in the background .
ChrisJ (114565) 2013-09-12 4:39
The German flag features prominently in the fg. Good sharpness and excellent choice of a wide angled, panoramic format. The people add scale & context. I like the distinctive Tudor style architecture along the riverbank. The bridge at left adds good lead in lines. Tfs!
pierrefonds (66841) 2013-09-12 4:44
The distance between the bridge and the summit of the hill is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

Germany has a lot nice places and also big rivers with nice castle and scenic places.
Perspective and depth are perfect taken.
Excellent captured, lovely composed.
Very well done, TFS.

Nice view down to the small bridge. I like the background with beautiful building/houses, vineyards on the slopes and the forest on the top of the hill. Beautiful landscape photo in excellent light. Well done.
bayno (18344) 2013-09-12 5:19
really nice and typical village, in love this kind of architecture, you chose a nice POV to create a good perspective and diagonal, the details is ok....the tones little strange...maybe the light was not so good...
mkamionka (37147) 2013-09-12 8:07
lovely town with a unique architecture and it seems to have a great location, I like the shape of the mountain just behind the atractive buildings. It is really a good idea to make such trip along the river, one can discover plenty of small charming places without changing hotel every night.
ourania (46192) 2013-09-12 8:19
a very picturesque town at a beautiful location. Everything about it looks so fine and neat, even the natural landscape. The people's presence is intriguing and animantes the scene, the flying flags offer agreeable vivid colours and a delightful sense of movement, even more eye-catching for being in the foreground. Your perspectives are nice and neat too and you've achieved excellent definition all over. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Nice capture of this riverside town. It would be wonderful to explore the forest behind it. I like your pov and it has good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

wrong chapter! Assmannshausen is not Rhineland-Palatinate but Hesse. Rhine river's right bank is hessian from Lampertheim (opposing Worms) to a point north of Lorch, 11 kms from Assmannshausen.
Have a nice weekend!

Hi Ike,really nice and original this place,the houses seems made whit the lego bricks,very nice architechtures close to the river and an excellent capture despite the cloudy day.Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
kato (11630) 2013-09-14 2:24
You're capturing well this beautiful scape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Rhine river, historical/tasteful houses standing in a line along the river and hill with forest. Surely, here looks like the picturesque small town as you note. And, the national flag draws out a strong impact in this image.
nikkitta (17066) 2013-09-14 14:35
Well taken capture where you manage to show from the ship? both the typical timbered houses along with the very green fields at the very back
Good to add the flags, at the composition
Enjoing your trip along the Rhin

Lovely image with this beautiful population along the river, the German flag in the foreground, and indicates its location ... the houses are charming and pleasant hills behind are a nice background.
Beautiful colorful natural.
Magnificent both luminosity, as sharpness.
Very well done.
I wish you a happy start to the week.

A successful image Ike with the German flag as landmark,
your frame includes the Rhine river and a landscape with hills, forests and a village
It's a remarkable architecture somewhat close to the one visible in Alsace, good colors, sharpness and pov

So you took place on the lookout post of your cruise ship for a better overview of this small town adorned of romantic-style dwellings!
I can see on mountain slope the forest cutting, trail for the high-wire chairlift described on Wikipedia.
Given all the greenery, that's for shure a refreshing and pollution-free piece of town.

nice details of architecture and the rural landscape ahead. the little towers in the buildings and other details remember me the german buildings I saw in Namibia.
Cricri (120119) 2015-05-24 23:51
Belle vue sur les habitations et ces collines verdoyantes, la passerelle en diagonale et l'inclusion des drapeaux, belle présentation

Your photographs bring back memories of our cruise down the Rhine. I will have to locate my archive and see if I can find anything interesting to share!
I like how you have included the German flag in the f/g; it immediately informs of the country, as well as anchoring the f/g.
The locked gate suggests that these people are queuing to join a later boat, but they are useful for your purpose of giving human interest and animating the river's edge.
Aren't those houses lovely! If I remember rightly these were characteristic of much of the riverside hamlets. Thank you for reminding me!
Have a lovely day,
