Here we are with a 2007 variation:

même la pénombre ne t'arrête pas, tu captes tout aussi bien ce genre de lumières que celles difficiles des plus mauvaises conditions climatiques.
Une jolie bande de couleurs chaudes bien saturées.
Le tout est superbement cadré.
Best regards from Liège.

Quelles couleurs! Le contraste entre les couleurs chaudes du chateau et celles froides du ciel est superbe. Du très beau travail avec une réalisation technique parfaite.

A fine night compo, with superb exposure and colours,POV and framing are good too... very nice shine and reflections in the lake!
cbrman (21645) 2007-01-11 11:33
Tu as réalisé une jolie composition de nuit ! La vue sur ce chateau est très belle et il y a une très bonne harmonie avec le ciel qui reprend le dégradé avec l'éclairage artificiel du chateau ! Les reflets dans l'eau sont un plus !

A very special moment is captured here, showing us the thin line between the day and night. Very beautiful illumination of the castle, nice sky and reflection in the lake.

Yes, a good photographic realization of the "lake applet" effect, Jack. Good post-work to enhance the mood provided by the shooting hour and the way in which the different lights and illuminations cast a warming glow across the scenery with the waterside castle. Nice shot.
miuky (3335) 2007-01-11 12:50

It took you one year to post this gem.....
Good contrast between the lit castle and the darkening sky,very dramatic presentation.
I enjoy the applet.
A well thought photo.
lilimih33 (9918) 2007-01-11 17:27
Lovely night composition! Beautiful colours, contrast and reflexion! Good perspective and sharpness!
avigur_11 (22081) 2007-01-11 22:36
Ecellent night shot, Jack. I like the strange sky, which makes this image very dramatic. Perfect exposre. I think tat iI'd try to darken the lit hills, to increase the impact.
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2007-01-12 1:04
Excellent light management. The contrast of the sky with the castle is also wonderful.

Nice photo. I really like the effects the light gives the buildings. Nice work. TFS.
Philippe (11836) 2007-01-12 5:17
Hi, Jack. The well-lit castle stands out remarkably well on the grey sky and the dark water. The castle is also well framed between the silhouettes of the trees and the forest on the sides. The light and colours are fantastic.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2007-01-12 5:43
What an incredible picture. The light, the reflection, the colors, all in mixed in a wonderfull show.
jasmis (57906) 2007-01-12 5:49
Really amazing view. I remember this castle from my visit in Norway in 1989. On 2nd of July was birthday of a King and there were 12 shots from the guns. Me and my wife had that day our 12 aniversary so coincidense was quite ezceptional. Regards.

asajernigan (21382) 2007-01-12 21:50
This is a very good night photo. You have excellent color and lighting here with nice shapness and detail.
PixelTerror (0) 2007-01-13 5:11
For us in the far south it's amazing there can remain so much darkness after 9.00 AM, even in winter, but this is Norway and it gives this photo originality, I like the morning touch beginning to appear in the sky as opposed to the strong glow of the castle lighting.
Have a nice day,
balatrek (7455) 2007-01-13 12:05
Fantastic place, the lights are impressive, the composition is very good, I like the intensity of the sky and the colours of the scene,the textures of the water are very pleasant, almost can be touched, good work and thanks to share.

Espetáculo de imagem.

Grande abraço meu amigo
Gregtom (7167) 2007-01-16 2:38
Very nicely cathed landscape with the castle acting as the main object of this scene! I like colors of the castle, illuminated by the lamps, in opposition to the color of the evening sky. Fantastic contrast!
Tue (28264) 2007-01-16 3:42
Wonderful night shot, well composed. I love the warm colours of the castle, that contrast nicely with the colder colours of water and sky. The reflections are nice too. Great work!
dragonslayero (3116) 2007-01-16 4:41
This is a very interesting POV of Akershus festning, or AK as I learned to call when I was a royal guard :)
The conditions here look great, low light and the unmistakable red tint of the morning sun.
I must alsoadmit tha the castle looks good with the floodlighting.
Ok a little fact about me, I almost fell off one of the walls here when I was doing night time partol duty...
pablominto (53744) 2007-01-16 12:43
An excellent night time photograph, with the most impressive colours and fine details!
The warmth of the colours are amazing, and contrasting well the cool sky...
carper (96) 2007-01-17 12:48

capthaddock (28790) 2007-01-21 20:22
Hi Jack - this is definitely my kind of photo, the castle itself is pretty enough, with that sky it becomes phenomenal, adding to my favourites.
Georges (11185) 2007-01-22 14:18
Superbe les teintes nocturnes ici.
L'effet est de toute beauté
coco (30439) 2007-01-23 17:25
This night shot looks really impressive because the lights and the exposure. Also the reflections over the water and the powerful sky makes much more impressive.
Bluejeans (64249) 2007-01-24 15:32

Hi Jack. Great photo. You have balanced the different light sources well. The overall effect is perhaps a little eerie but quite pleasing. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
