One of my favourite subjects, Dunluce Castle. Again, (taken same day as Dunseverick) I used an ND filter and a 0.6nd nd grad for the sky. Vignetting was quite severe because of the wide angle lens/nd filter combo, corrected this in photoshop but not completely removed as I think it looks nice. I was lucky the clouds were moving into the frame rather than sideways as it seems to have focused attention on the castle. Thanks for looking!

Nice wide angle shot Douglas. The vignetting is not bad, and I think you're right - a little is nice. I also love the blur from the water and clouds. How long was this exposure? Great shot. Well done.

I like the wide angle in this shot. the sweep of clouds over the ancient castle makes for quite the dramatic scene. Well done!

Nice photo Douglas,
I agree, the movement of the clouds towards the castle really adds to the photo. Nice composition of the jagged coastline. TFS

i undestand that it's one of your favorite subjects, the place is magique !! and your shots are splendids. the 0,6 ND make a very mysterious sky and sea

A fantastic view, romantic and wild. The sea and the sky all seem to converge to the castle. Great depth by including the rocku foreground.

The composition is very good and I like the strange effect of the long exposure on the clouds.
The castle is not sharp enough (it seems to be blur), but that's a good picture !
