un castello molto bello, immerso in un paesaggio splendido, dove natura, coltivazioni e il fiume, creano una piacevole visione.

The distance between the village and the castle is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Burg-Stahleck castle. The light is making the green colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

TFS - congrats,

It is very impressive this castle overlooking the village below and installed in a commanding position above the river. It sits well against the surrounding vineyards. A well framed composition with appealing light and colours.

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the tasteful castle above town along the Rhine river, compartmented farmland on slope and rich greenery. You also catch well this castle from two angles in WS.

very nice the panoramic view of the place with the castle to dominating the greenery hill.I like the excellent light and colour management with the houses and the other constructions on the river side to make the image even more effective.
PS thank you for your wishes about Christmas

Very nice capture of this castle and the different types of vehicles to travel as I see a lot of RVs in the park. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Très beau point de vue sur le château et son environnement de verdure au-dessus du village. Très belles couleurs. Bien fait.

This is a magnificent castle among greenery, TFS!
UlfE (14449) 2013-12-22 23:59
You did an excellent photo-job when you took this photo. I was not easy to include both the river and the castle on a high crag on the river bank. But you found a very good compromise and it resulted in a very attractive photo. TFS and Season's Greetings.

A very pleasant and very green scene, a picture to enjoy now at the darkest time of the year. An interesting castle in this beautiful valley.
krzychu30 (14346) 2013-12-23 2:41
Pfalz landscape from its most beautiful side!
The location of the Castle,but also your presentation and POV you chose capture perfectly the uniqueness of this region.This vivid greenery adds a lot of liveliness to the scene.
Wish You a nice and peaceful Christmas time and all the best in New Year
jhm (130620) 2013-12-23 2:55
I find your "Altered Image #2" the most beautiful picture or the three.
But also these picture is very nice through the green foreground.
Colours and subject makes these picture attractive.
A nice composition, excellent captured
Very well done, TFS.
Merry Christmas to you and your family,
ourania (21414) 2013-12-23 4:39
a superb presentation of the gracious castle and the imposing place it has in the landscape. I like very much the point of view and framing you chose, the castle is placed high in the frame and the view behind it completes the composition excellently. There's a 3D effect of the castle and the hill it stands on. Very fine details describe the natural scenery and the architecture effectively. The green tones and the atmosphere are lovely. The workshop pictures are interesting and pleasing too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a wonderful Christmas time,
Royaldevon (23402) 2013-12-23 6:26
This is so characteristic of Germany, the steep slopes rising from the river, vineyards planted on the slopes and upper regions surmounted by a castle. You have captured it well, giving the castle a strong position in the frame.
The orange vans add a splash of colour, drawing attention to the river and making a good starting point to climb the slopes.
My best wishes to you and your wife for a very happy Christmas,
Waylim (24338) 2013-12-23 10:12
It is a beautiful scenery with all the whole image in deep green, so full of energy and spring and summer like, the setting is wonderful, river, hill, castles, jsut waiting for the prince and princess.
Good quality photo and good choice to leave out the sky that is too bright.
nikkitta (10418) 2013-12-23 14:05
I suppose that here the main protagonist is the castle and the sorrounding what I supppose must be winegards
Very good the the ones on the WS , prefer #2
Good to add the river at the front for contrast
Greetings and all the best at this time of the year for you and familly
Miguel82 (16568) 2013-12-23 16:27
This is a fantastic shot Ike, bravo, a magnificent castle on a hill and fields, I like the different layers of landscape,excellent hues and high resolution, good view of Rhine river, thanks, warm regards
delpeoples (50263) 2013-12-23 23:39
A beautifully composed photo, I like how you almost completely cropped out the sky and allowed the green hills to dominate. The textures of the greenery are lovely and the castle is the star of the show. Superb work.
adramad (32851) 2013-12-24 7:20
A wonderful composition, which combines the charm of these hillsides covered with arable fields and woodland, the castle on top of one of the hills looks splendid.
Very good color in natural tones.
Magnificent .... both brightness and sharpness.
Well captured. I Like
I wish you a Merry Christmas in the company of family and friends.
All the best to you.
mkamionka (28031) 2013-12-25 12:28
one more location in Germany which is completely unknown to me and it seem so interesting from your presentation. The castle has a lovely setting on top of the hill and here also the hill makes a diagonal across the frame and another hill rises just behind making a nice geometric effect. The weather was not perfect but you still managed to capture so much green color here.
Silvio1953 (109249) 2013-12-26 1:53
Ciao Ike, great view of fantastic castle in a beautiful landscape, excellent clarity, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Given the mighty 'sovereign' that reigns over vineyards on the hilltop, I have the impression of a toy town lying down below and that judicious setup is quite informative of a serene grandeur.
jmdias (49653) 2014-01-03 15:27
very interesting view. the small plantations look like squares of the fabric drying in the sun. nice inclusion of the beautiful castle. TFS.
wolf38 (29666) 2014-01-05 7:26
Hello Ike. An interesting photo from Germany. I've never been to Bacharach. So I have to look at TE to get an impression of Bacharach. The photo pleases me very well, because it contains so many details.
Best rgds, Wolfgang .... and a happy NEW YEAR
Kamilutka (5683) 2014-01-07 1:31
Now this is a cracker, Ike!
What an amazing place with the green hills and the castle dominating the scenery. Good that there is not much sky included and a little bit tighter framing serves the composition very well.
Church and the river at the bottom add to the whole image.
mirosu (10128) 2014-01-21 0:38
I do not understand how I managed to miss this excellent photo. I like the composition with the castle on the top of the hill but not omitting the houses near the river and small ships on the river. The vineyards in fore- and background add nice contrast to this beautiful image.
Wish you a very nice rest of the week.
