2nd place
Castle by gr8fulted

corngrowth: Ted,

Thanks for both a wonderful capture (S+F instantly) and an interesting narrative and additional comment with a link.
I like to provide you and the Caedes friends with some additional information as well:
In the Rheinland-Palatinate community Trechtingshausen,Germany there are two castles: the castle Rheichenstein (aka Falkenburg) and the castle Rheinstein (aka Voitsberg or Vaitzburg).

About Reichenstein: this castle is situated on a promontory on the eastern slope of the Binger forest. Today, the complex houses a castle museum with a large collection of historic weapons and armor, and since the end of 2015 a hotel and restaurant. In the castle, the living spaces are still preserved as they were over a hundred years ago. In the castle chapel and the old premises weddings can still take place today.

About Rheinstein: this castle is situated in the upper Middle Rhine Valley. It received its present name after completion of its reconstruction in 1829. The castle has been restored (in more than 30 years) to its original condition. It is privately owned, but is accessible for a fee at regular opening hours. Particularly worth seeing are the largely reconstructed architectural paintings and the restored glass windows from the 14th to the 17th century. The Burgundy Garden is today part of the route of the World Heritage Gardens. At the castle there's a catering business. A tower apartment and a holiday apartment in the castle can be rented. For civil and ecclesiastical weddings the gardens and historic rooms are available as well.

3rd place
C is for COLOR ! by mesmerized

icedancer: Absolutely love it and the colours - right into my favs

jerseygurl: Congrats Pat on taking 3rd place in the contest!!!!!

gr8fulted: Glad you were able to place in the contest!!!

Nikoneer: Some elitist students in my college fine art days, long ago, would have jeered "cheater" for your manner of illustration, but, for myself, the only one of the two dozen who chased a degree in fine art who actually had a career that included art (the next closest was a guy who sold art supplies!), I have always felt that it was your final result that mattered and not the process you use to get there. Kudos, Pat!

+favs for me.

Your lighting is good good here, Laura.

I love how the backdrop fades from the coral pink colour to that of that the light blue/gray. It's a gorgeous gradation.

Composition is strong. Colours are natural.

Thanks for sharing this one with us. And best of luck in the contest.
