Artist's Description

Wismar is a small port and Hanseatic League town in northern Germany on the Baltic Sea, in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, about 45 km due east of Lübeck, and 30 km due north of Schwerin. Its natural harbour, located in the Bay of Wismar is well-protected by a promontory. The population was 45,414 in March 2005, more than doubled from 21,902 in 1905.

Representative of Hanseatic League city brick construction as well as the German brick churches, the city has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 2002. (taken from

The square’s focal point is the Wasserkunst, an elaborate wrought-iron fountain imported from Holland in 1602. (from

PP: I used layers and desaturated the background around 50% because the light conditions weren’t too good as it was late afternoon when I took the photo; desaturating the background brought out the structure of the fountain much better; cropped away some of the cobblestones in the foreground to concentrate more on the fountain; cloned out some advertising signs on two buildings and a man passing by; cloned out some signs on the Wasserkunst itself and cloned out a large fuse box right in front of the fountain;

Maybe this place doesn’t look like exactly as in this image but it is worth to be visited.

Thanks for having a look. Any comments and critiques are welcome. Kindest regards, Britta
