Ed, I am a fan of bright and particularly contrasting colors, such as the autumn oranges and colored buildings and rooftops and the blue sky as in your image, so I immediately was drawn to your image. It is sharp in the fact that your image even displays the eddy and its downstream (or upstream, depending on which way you're going) 'V.' The river itself is somewhat of a leading line and gives a center to your image, making for good composition. You don't say what lens setting you used, so I can't comment on the depth of field, but it's still a good image.   Posted: 02/01/2024 06:55:08

Ed, Your image is beautifully composed, where the leading line of the water takes the viewer into the scene. There's a sense of balance, with both sides of the water contributing weight from the buildings. A very colorful image. The point of view you chose, with the castle's tower off center is well done. I do find the photo over saturated.   Posted: 02/01/2024 10:10:18

Doc, this is a very nice land/city scape of the town of Krumlov, and with the Vitava river working as a leading line to take you into the city. The castle in the background stands up. It is obvious that the image was created from a high vantage point. The local architecture of the old buildings enhances the image. It is sharp.   Posted: 02/01/2024 13:33:22

Ah Český Krumlov! One of the neatest little towns in Europe, right after Rothenburg ob der Tauber! Beer is great too. Great picture, photographed in the fall with those golden leaves. I agree with Susan. I suggest you reduce saturation to give it a more natural look.   Posted: 02/04/2024 17:30:46

The degree of saturation is a problem to judge, because in magazines dull colors don't go over well   Posted: 02/05/2024 16:11:49

Well done. Love this town, the photo showcases the castle, the church, the river as well as the color of Český Krumlov.   Posted: 02/09/2024 00:15:19
