While I like all of the pictures, I agree that the approver's choice is properly given to this composition which balances the green Rhine, the snow on the branch and on the houses, and a bit (tiny) of blue sky. It shows a real eye for composition.

Congratulations on a well-deserved recognition!

Really a nice shot, Bernard! Love the snowy
branch in front and the green color of the water,
too. The snow on the roofs really shows all the
little architectural details! Beautiful and well
worthy of your new AC!

About Hotzenwaelder

Hotzenwaelder

Although born, reared, and educated in the United States, I have been living in Europe for well over half of my life – primarily in Germany, and the pictures I submit are for the most part from the southern slopes of the Black Forest in the Rhine Valley between Germany and Switzerland. I have learned a great deal about photography from all the excellent posters on this site, and I am very thankful to everyone from all over the world for the help.
