Thanks for your comments on my Neuschwanstein image, April! Great POV from the bridge. I remember seeing this bridge from the castle and it looked pretty scary. I remember correctly it is a suspended bridge over the gorge. The motion of the bridge probably caused the slight blurr on this image. A bit of PS sharpening might remove it. It is a great shot! #4406564

this is a great shot and I think it took some doing because castles are not the easiest things to fit inside a camera with all their quirky angles and shadows and just finding a good position to shoot them can also be very tricky

really nice shot. and everyone above me thinks so too. #4418611
