The winner for this week's Reader SunShots series "Europe" is JoAnne Schertle for her photo of Neuschwanstein Castle taken just outside of Fussen in Bavaria, Germany. She used a Fujifilm FinePix camera to capture the famous landmark, which was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty's Castle at Disneyland. Here is a critique by senior photo editor Jerry Jackson: "There were a lot of fine images submitted by our well-traveled readers for this category. The castle in this nicely composed image stands out against the dark background. I like how the photographer chose to frame it with foreground trees."
