This is the castle 'Solitude', which we visit on our mountainbike tours from time to time. It was build in the 1760's and shows the transition from the architectural style of rococo to classicism. Since 1990 it is the home of an art academy.

This is one of the coolest images I've seen in a while. Captivating in the way it is processed. Dennis Rogers @ 2006-April-14 23:05

The composition of this image really initiates the fantastic lines and angles that follow. The varying tones of the exterior surfaces also create contrasts of textures and colour. A fantastic curvature aspect is present also in isolated areas of this image.
The mono-tone attribute gives this image its wonderful overall stark impactual quality. ndiginiz @ 2006-April-15 06:11
this is awesome, great shot and processing ? sìkò @ 2006-April-15 08:54
I like the angle you chose. Quite daring really because sometimes that angle can look naff. Love the tones. The detail is picked up minutely! mooch @ 2006-April-15 13:37
I love the sharpness and contrast of your photo! Like what others said, I agree that the angle works here. gcdc @ 2006-April-15 17:25
some people are trying real hard to obtain similar realities as this one, using sophisticated computer hardware and software...you should teach them to walk a bit around with wide-opened eyes... dorian gray @ 2006-April-16 10:37
This is really awesome. Great angles, curves & architecture. I like your choice of processing in toned B&W. David Kapp @ 2006-April-16 16:37
