This white eagle stands guard on one of the series of steps that give access to all the various levels at the unusual monument that is the Castillo Colomares (Colomares Castle) at Benalmadena Pueblo, Spain. An unusual monument that is dedicated to Christopher Columbus and his discovery of America.

bellissimo scatto, una composizione eccellente, i due soggetti si sposano perfettamente.
Il cielo blu fa da magnifico sfondo e la qualità è splendida come sempre.

Hello Brian ,
An excellent capture of the outstanding castle , with the impressive white eagle in the FG . Superb contrast with the perfect blue sky .

A strange looking monument with a touch of the oriental about it. I like the framing with the inclusion of the eagle, which makes a great foil for the background architecture. Very appealing light and lovely warm colours. Superb rendering of the textural detail. Have a good weekend.

una composizione straordinaria sia per l'accoppiamento indovinato dei sue soggetti, sia per il contrasto dei colori, il tutto con una nitidezza ed una profondità di campo invidiabili e tale da permettere di cogliere ogni dettaglio di entrambi i soggetti.
Caio, buona giornata e buon fine settimana

It's nice, really nice.
I'm thinking that it would be better if the scene is a bit wider, that you were moved back a step, or reduce the zoom?

What a lovely picture, thoughtful photo with the owl and castle on this same picture.
High quality picture with pleasant colours.
Wonderful composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
I wish you and your family a very nice Merry Christmas,

The ornate castle is guarded by a rather fierce-looking beady-eyed eagle Brian! A clever composition which capitalises on texture and the contrasting colours of stone to separate the two major features. Warm regards Rosemary

An interesting and beautiful architecture of this castle with rich details, the structure of walls is very well shown, and this proud bird fits into the castle

excellent catch again, Brian, you got an endless depth here with f/22. Good sharp details and nice clarity. The most admirable field here your chosen POV. Very good composition with vibrant colour tone. Tfs.

Une belle image de cet aigle blanc qui surveille le château rouge dont l'architecture est vraiment magnifique. Belle composition avec un ciel parfait. Très bien fait.

Superbe cadrage avec une maîtrise parfaite de la profondeur de champ. Belle lumière et superbes couleurs sur ce bâtiment à l'architecture très originale.

Bravo et amitié

excellent composition and really superb juxtaposition of two very expressive objects.
Really like the way you placed the Eagle sculpture in the frame.
And finally the quality of the image with all perfectly exposed textures and so lovely,vivid colors.
Have a nice sunday

I really enjoy your composition here with the eagle making a very nice foreground. You have well used it here with the fragment of the stylish castle. It feels almost as if the eagle looked at the tower from above.
Very interesting architecture, its reddish tone goes well with the uniformly blue sky.
Have a wonderful Christmas!
