title Thousands of Love Padlocks
date2/9/2014 3:52:17 AM
detailsFor several years now, love locks have been considered one of Cologne’s most charming traditions. As proof of their love, couples fix padlocks to the railings on the Hohenzollern Bridge to ensure everlasting love. They then throw the key into the river Rhine below.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice Sunday!

Wonderfull image Elisabeth. Great colors and details. Very mood full and clear image. The movement makes it "TOP EDGE". Big compliment. The only thing that would made an improvement was a bit more sight on the church, but moving a bit to the left or moving the bridge wasn't an option I believe.
So in that case: "my top ten" on forehand for today.
(So other PB'ers: Make me regret this decision:)

#1 Ray Griffiths(I'm building an Ark): Thank you!
#2 B2O: Thank you! A long and thick flag pole on the left made the composition difficult. I cloned it out. If I had chosen my point of view more on the left to show more of the cathedral the flag pole would even more distract the view to the cathedral and cloning it out would nearly be impossible (for me). This is why I chosed this point of view!

I know there was a reason. I did not expect an explanation because that does not matter, but thank you for the extra info although wasn't needed for this wonderful image. Thank you for sharing it and get inspiration for free:)
