Hi there,

upon browsing through my last photos I found one that meets this challenge - this is a monastary, which has the same name as the famous "Notre-Dame" in Paris: "Kloster unserer lieben Frauen".

This is from the backside and for me this is a very rare view, since I very seldom approach it from that side. I was faszinated by the symmetry (so please no "bad composition" warnings - I know that it is a "centered" picture - I think it's ok in that case to even more emphasize that symmetry).

#1 - closeup



#2 - "wide" view. For some reason this looks a tad reddish... hm. Will have to do another try to post-process before printing, but it's ok to show the whole scenery here I think.



You can catch a glimpse on the green citadel too - as I told you some nice buildings are very close together in the city centre.

Enjoy,
Th.

Very nice. A reminder of the cloistered life until death of those monks. Even the windows are designed to let light in, not for viewing the outside world.

Classic lines. Your photo does justice to show how sheltered their lives must have been.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the nice comments - I slowly seem to get the hang on my *ist DL2 - it's completely different from my Oly C770. Also the postprocessing is different.

So I'll be on the lookout for any chance to snap happily away - all challenges welcome

These old buildings are faszinating, aren't they? In a special way they seem to have something common (i.e. a "typical" church-feeling - you can even close your eyes but still sense a church in a way). On the other hand they are all unique.
