Nekarstaden in Heidelberg on yet another view.
Inspite of the heavy rain, I was intrigued to take the beautiful view across the flooded Nekar river, and the waterfront promenade on the foreground.

Previousely on the Hochwasser in Heidelberg.

Bonsoir, cher Ike,
En principe une photo ensoleillée attire le regard, mais, ici, la prise de vue interpelle le lecteur par sa présentation.
Le sujet est fort bien présenté, nous avons vraiment l'impression d'être sur place et de vouloir nous protéger de la pluie.
De plus, le sujet en lui-même est intéressant.

Well managed backlighting with excellent sharpness and punchy light contrasts and graphic elements. Good colour and saturation. The diagonal fence and road both add good dynamism and perspective. The bg bridge makes a good focal point. Good reflections in the wet pavement. Tfs!

Ike, from the other side of the road, a rainy day in Heidelberg, the urban equipments are visible, the river, a bridge and many houses, perfect sharpness, regards

The distance between the two shores is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the bridge and of the buildings. The rainy weather is giving a special mood to the scene. Have a nice day.

beautiful rainy scenery of this section of the town of Heidelberg with the bridge to be placed perfect in the frame.I like the foggy environment as the charmy of the place.

Hello dear Ike,
Allthough rainy and not easy light conditions, nice capture from Heidelberg with perfect pov and layout.
I can even hear the melody of the famous song "I lost my heart in Heidelberg" !
TFS and best regards from İstanbul.

mi piace l'atemosfera malinconica che hai saputo imprimere alla fotografia.
La giornata di pioggia, le strade deserte, la stessa foschia che incombu sul fiume rendono sfumati in maniera particolare i colori e fanno presagire il resto di una giornata dominata da questo tempo triste.
Gradevole la composizione che fa perso sul bel lungofiume contrassegnato dalle pozzangheri e relativi riflessi.
Ciao e buona giornata

A lot rivers his one year ago burst their banks, with sometimes very heavy effects.
Nothwithstanding the rain is your picture very well.
What a quiet picture with lovely misty atmosphere and clear colours.
Also a wonderful panorama view about these area.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Une journée de pluie qui ne n'empêche pas que cette image est bien présenter, j'aime le feuillages des arbres qui coiffe une grande partie du ciel gris et brumeux, les reflets dans les marre d'eau, la prise en diagonale du pont, très belle réalisation

Despite the rain, a lovely picture with a nice POV, which captures foreground backlight of the trees and the gate of the river, at the bottom of the bridge, and the wooded hillside, with lots of character houses, create a beautiful set.
Very pretty color, despite the day.
A magnificent brightness management, sharpness also
Very well seen and well taken.
eldancer1 (32756) 2014-04-10 7:39
I like the effect of the mist on the mood, I can almost feel the humid chill in the air. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
kato (11630) 2014-04-10 10:31
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it'a interesting and impressive to see town scape of Heidelberg in wet day. I can see msny beautiful buildings of the medieval-times style along the route of the other side of a river. It's also tasteful for wet promenade in FG and red histotical bridge over the river.
ourania (37324) 2014-04-10 11:13
I like very much how you composed this picture opting for an interesting daily life scenery instead of a postcard view. The foreground frames the background very effectively, the mist adds a sense of romanticism and mystery to the elegant setting, the deserted street evokes a melancholic feeling. The reflections balance the lighting in a fine way, the colours and the atmosphere are natural and appealing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
Royaldevon (33787) 2014-04-10 12:32
No matter what the weather, photography is still possible! The f/g puddles and the misty b/g, help to explain the nature of the day. Despite the poor light, your f/g details are remarkably clear, whilst the well chosen viewpoint, creates a strong, angled view.
My warm regards,
marina7 (8055) 2014-04-10 13:49
it's a beautiful photo, I'm longing for a heavy warm rain right now!:) Lovely diagonal and misty background, great mood.
nikkitta (17018) 2014-04-10 15:13
How good of you to insist and take so creatives captures despite the rain and fog
May be it could improve with blue sky but this way and taken with great sharpness, lets admire lot of details, like the iron fences as akind of frame and the city at the back

Ciao Ike, fascinating misty composition with nice reflections, excellent perspective, wonderful soft colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
UlfE (14641) 2014-04-11 12:05
A very good example of that is possible to take excellent photos on rainy days. I really like the mood created by the light fog in the background that makes lamppost and tree trunks in their dark colours to really stand out against the background. The composition is also very good with the lamppost in focus, the foliage that forms a diagonal and the puddles in the foreground. TFS and have a nice weekend!

I think you capture the scene perfectly - I can feel the cold & dampness of the day the fog drifting in over the town & not a soul in sight...
A well composed photo - natural colours & excellent clarity.
Nicou (131358) 2014-04-12 1:43
Très très belle iamge sous la pluie le rendu au sol brillant fait ressortir les éléments en noir et l'arbre avec la lampe ce pont en fond et la brume quelle ambiance.
Bravo et amitié
mcmtanyel (17179) 2014-04-12 22:07
Foggy hilltops framed by trees of the foreground make for a very romantic photo.
Kielia (24073) 2014-04-14 4:31
what a spectacular situation! You have chosen an excellently working POV to present this well known place under these extremely difficult conditions. The composition is excellent; my compliments!
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-04-15 23:10
some new pictures in your gallery which I missed because of my recent traveling. This in particular is very pretty with the rainy mood all over the photo. The clearer foreground gains by contrast more interest from very nice background which has subtle tones and some bits of mist. The wet road and muted colors enhance the atmosphere and the whole composition seems to be very well thought through.
Thanks for sharing and all the best
jcpix (13820) 2014-04-18 20:56
You've utilized the drizzly atmosphere to your advantage here. Without any particular focal point or subject, this plays right into the strength of the conditions. With the misty haze and wet pavement, the natural elements play the role of main attraction. There's also a hint of mystery due to the low lying clouds, making me wonder what lies in the hills above?? :) Enjoy the new day. All the best.
adores (41618) 2014-04-27 6:44
I like this, the compsition and specially the atmosphere, with the wet ground and the mist above the river. Very well framed!
jmdias (59190) 2014-06-07 2:07
I liked the way you used the trees in the foreground. the aspects of the town ahead are fantastic and even the mist and the bad weather don't spoiled the view. nice compo.
outside of my home we have the same weather at this moment, we had a so huge amount of rain and there is more to fall.
abmdsudi (47542) 2014-08-17 4:39
A very view point I think, which creates an interesting composition and rain or no rain an avid shooter seems not to be bothered by any weather conditions. The beautiful bg across grabs attention immediately as strong focal but nonetheless those extra elements in the fg effectively complement the shot so smoothly. This arrangement looks just great as do with the exposure and overall colors rendition. The joy of misty wet day with this productive shot, something which has to do with your fine photographic eye. Congrats
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-09-29 10:47
Very lovely and mystic view, the trees and river were clear but the background houses were foggy, an excellent composition with good framing, I liked its perfect exposure.
warm regards and thanks,
berek (44363) 2014-10-09 22:12
Good morning Ike,
its a gray day. I like the foliage of the trees which covers much of the gray, misty sky, the reflections in the water tired, taking the bridge diagonal. well framed picture.
Matyas (9882) 2015-06-28 1:31
Shalom Ike! Do You have umbrella? Fine take. Fine lightness and sophisticated colours. Superb contrast and sharpness. Original work. Regards!
