Another photo from Liechtenstein (see also note from my previous post from Liechtenstein).
This small "castle" is situated on steep slope with green hills behind and nice small vineyard in front, high above the Liechtenstein capital, the town of Vaduz.
There is an excellent view to Vaduz and the Rhine Valley from this "castle".

This is a splendid coloured castle , nestled in the greenery and a fine mountain landscape . I like especially the angle of view and the exquisite sharpness .

The tight frame is putting the castle in evidence. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the casdtle. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

you said small castle, but to me this is very big (castles are not common in Brazil). Beautiful place with all this colors. Lovely photo.
timecapturer (49280) 2012-10-26 5:25
a beautifully composed shot that is full of a wonderful mixture of colours and elements that look so attractive and harmonious. A fascinating looking place and your POV makes it look so magnificent. Excellent!
Have a great weekend - Brian.

J'aime beaucoup cette contre plongée qui donne de l'ampleur à cette belle construction qui s'accroche à la montagne. La lumière est belle et sature les couleurs .
saxo042 (37578) 2012-10-26 7:54
Looks like a quite big castle! A good POV with the castle from below against the mountain. A fine colour combination with the green vegetation, the red wall and the blue sky!
maria-v1981 (10814) 2012-10-26 9:15
Thats a lovely and an intersing pov which makes this image come alive and stand out against the greens. The colours and textures are lovely and well crafted and overall there's plenty of impact.
Have a nice evening,

Salut cher Miro
Such unusual architecture and taken at a time of day where the sun can do justice to the colours that abound. Excellent POV, good sharp image and and nice complement to your previous photos in the Liechtenstein series.

A picture with a great composition (I like
that the roof just above the mountains,
that creates a lind of layers in the
picture and that creates a nice depth).
Light management is also great: no hard
shadows and very nice warm and bright colors.

nice summer view of small castle in Vaduz. An interesting place. I like the tower between the green. Good vertical composition.
Have a nice WE.
adramad (38545) 2012-10-27 7:29
Small but very beautiful castle, with this diverse construction that combines stone in his first three floors, ending with a superb half-timbered design, playing white walls, original the pointed roof, beautiful and different the townhouses at the same . A superb landscape with steep slopes of the mountains covered with trees.
Very good brightness and color range.
Enjoy the weekend.
abmdsudi (43714) 2012-10-28 3:46
These elegant buildings and the small 'castle' are neatly captured highlighting the unique local architecture in excellent details, texture and sharpness. The warm light hitting the structure is extremely awesome and oustandingly standout against the blue sky. It' finely composed with the viewpoint pointing upwards makes them looks grand along with natural framing afforded by the vine. I love the setting as if they are so secluded among the green setting and the mountain. Peaceful looking shot indeed, so well balanced exposure, great clarity and colors as well. Congrats. TFS
chrisvek (7001) 2012-10-28 6:33

Petit, mais très confortable ! Ce château bénéficie d'un environnement végétal de premier plan.
Un cadrage finement pensé pour présenter cette architecture originale.
Très bonne journée.

ourania (32031) 2012-10-28 12:59
I like very much your composition, adjusted superbly in the vertical frame. The architecture is most intriguing, with unusual features, textures and colours. You are presenting it with great perspective from a well chosen point of view and making marvellous use of the foreground and background to provide a comprehensive and attractive context and fill the frame with interest. I love the comfortable clarity, the beautiful bright colours, the fantastic quality of the light and the effective contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

C'est une belle prise de vue où domine un paysage naturel d'une imposante et puissant beauté et ce petit château accroché aux pentes abruptes. J’aime la sensation d'isolement. La composition fort bien réalisée.
Merci pour ton commentaire et compliments, sympa.

Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov, vertical format, black & white & grey borders and composition are all excellent and really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
jcpix (13686) 2012-10-30 17:02
This point of view sure makes the "castle" appear very majestic in its surroundings. I really like how it leads the eye right up the imposing mountainside. The strong colors are fantastic and compliment each other very well. Looks like a beautiful place to spend some time!
Waylim (25360) 2012-10-31 11:23
I was in Liechtenstein a couple of year back. I think I saw these castle from the street on the hill. Maybe, it was many years ago.
I love the beautiful sun light you have here, give a very pleasant and cheerful atmosphere with e green vineyard and the grapes.
Cricri (107240) 2012-11-01 5:05

ikeharel (58133) 2012-11-09 4:38
Beautiful built within the green surrounding, and nice contrast collected.
As I see this, I assume three diiferent archi.-styles from three eras, when this edifice was renovated.
Fine outlines and good light upon.
fritzi007 (6047) 2012-11-20 5:13
ein Foto wie eine Ansichtskarte, wirklich perfekt, gratuliere!
thebest (4276) 2012-11-21 2:07
Lovely photo of the castle - wonderful how these beautiful buildings were erected in some of the most precarious locations.
The clarity of your photo is beautiful as is the content.
jmdias (56073) 2012-11-24 0:22
I visited this country in a fast tour and walked for few minutes, to take a photo, this many decades ago.
very nice architecture of this curious castle. the light and the framing are perfect to show its details. TFS.
sacavem (18610) 2012-11-27 9:42
I like very much the castles, great architecture. Good composed photo. Very good colour, contrast and definition.
nota: in Portugal this type of castles is called palacios
photoray (12493) 2012-12-11 14:30
Interesting multiple styled castle and nicely composed with green foreground and majestic mountain backdrop.
A small castle from a small, postage stamp size country, is big in interest.
vjmite (3878) 2012-12-22 4:53
I like the point of view here, looking up to the mountains behind the castle. There is a nice blend of architectural styles in the castle.
gus72 (3719) 2013-01-14 22:03
Hi MIro !!
An interesting mix of styles makes this photo very pleasant to look at.
You have chosen a great POV and frame the shot to perfection.
Miguel82 (24153) 2013-03-25 11:50
Good presentation of that castle, a small state I don't know
Excellent sharpness, good exposition
Have a nice evening
