Flower decorations of the famous Kapellbrücke in Luzern.
Kapellbrücke was built in 1333 and is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe. Most part of it was burned though in 1993 and rebuilt next year. Every summer it is decorated with flowers in typical Swiss rustic style.

A nice shot of this interesting scene. Like the way you composed it with a good use of DOF and sharpness. The visual effect is great! Well done.

Wonderful picture of that beautiful urban spot!
Sharp fg, blurred bg, colors, exposure, chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities!

Hello dear Kari
I always accuse Malgorzata of having itchy feet, but I think that accusation could equally be used on you! You are always moving, perhaps you were a gypsy in a past life? :) Anyway, this photo tells me where your itchy feet have taken you to. A very original POV and Theme. It's very arty and I love the perspective and curves created by that original POV. The strength of colour is remarkable and I like how they contrast with the more neutral tones of the wood. Excellent shot.

You have managed to show a well known Swiss Icon to us in a totally unique and different light. I would call this a documentary artwork. Very well done and Thanks for sharing it.
Have a nice day,

Nice close-up photo of Cahle Bridge in Lucerne. I like the composition with the transition from sharp to slightly blured area. Well done.

Very artistic in nature with superb curves and colors. Your POV is very well thought out, and I really would love to know exactly how you took this photo, was there a walkway or did you just hang over the edge? Excellent clarity in the FG and perfect blurring in the BG, great job here Kari!!

I like the depth and perspective of that POV on the line of flowers. The depth of field is also well set and adds to the effect.

Soft charming capture in a high technical way. Interesting result, well taken.

these composition has a great graphical power and a few beautiful colors, because of the flowers in foreground and by the fantastic perspective of the famous Kapellbrücke in Luzern.
I like the grand optical effect created by your perfect management of the field depth, with all the blurry elements, except the flowers in foreground, that they are the authentic topic of your composition. Excellent photo.
