This is the beautiful town of Rothenburg on Germanys famous Romantic Road. The Romantic road route links some of the most piqturesque towns and cities in Bavaria. Rothenburg is the most famous of the towns and is a walled medieval town perched on the hillside above thr river Tauber. It is a lot more commercialised than some of its less visited neighbours, but is a wonderful place to visit , especially when the coach loads of tourists have dissappeared in the evening. The buildings in this image look a little crooked and its no suprise as they have lasted centuries.

Hi, Paul! Fantastic brightness, colours and light on your shot. Like it very much! The architecture is really romantic and the long exposure for this lines of the cars are very expressive.

Hi Paul. Very nice shot. I like it a lot.
I red your "bio" and I think you have a lot of talent and passion to produce this quality of photo after only one year. I think some of your pictures have too much saturation but except that, it's very impressive. I specialy like your night shot. You are able to put "colors in the night" (maybe we have a good song title here). Ok, your in my favorite.

I discovered your gallery just a few days ago but I am impressed by the quality of your work. I was in Rothenburg about 8 years ago and I remember with joy this marvellous old city surrounded by medieval walls. Here you captured really well one of the most fascinating alleys of the center with the two strees: the one descending and the one on the left going up the slope. The work on lgith is really good here with the stripes of light following the car in the distance. Good sharpness and use of the blue hour.
Very good indeed. Thanks for sharing.

What an amazing shot. Great that you took it during the blue hour. The sharpness is magnificent, almost seems like a painting, or a 3D rendering. Some game maybe.
Lucky but also well done with the car light. Lucky that it went to the left (white light), and the other(?) to the right. Creating nice curves. That's a really superb addition to the shot.
Superb tones, nice colours and proper saturation.
The POV on this road is great, nice depth is created by the framing of the buildings on the left, closing the image there, and creating the depth. Also the shot is nicely split in two regions by the house in the middle, which is more distant than the houses on the far left and right side, adding up to make more depth. Which also is done by the tower with tunnel on the end of the road below, in the right part of the shot.
I just have to say. I really love this shot!
Great work. Would give 3 p*|nts if it was possible! Or 10 if that was possible.
This really reminds me that I have a lot to learn.
Which is fun, and great too.
Best shot from yesterday
