Yes...I like your framing, it fits very well to the image enhancing colours and light, very beautiful view over the castle, extra point of view and great definition indeed!!
Have a nice day...

Hi Gyorgy, welcome to TE. Lovely view of this beautiful composition with the castle ruins on the cliff and the beautiful sea that surrounds it, very well captured with a great POV with excellent and beautiful photography. An interesting and beautiful image of a beautiful place, taken with good sharpness, nice color and light. A great job well done, congratulations. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Best regards from southern Spain.

Colour this time, which Scotland doesn't always lend itself to, being often damp and dreary, but you've managed to find some lovely light here, and a stunning location. My only slight concern is that you appear to have been a bit too enthusiastic with the saturation, most evident in the sky, though the cliffs and sea look a little over-cooked as well. I guess this is a crop, judging by the aspect ratio.

Hello Gyorgy ,
I've seen with your previous posts that you are a talentuous photographer , but only with B&W Pictures . I love sun and colors , so I'm happy you post this kind of view . Amazing light , sky and colors , for this wonderful presentation of this old ruins in a splendid seascape .
I don't agree with Will : In my opinion, colors are not oversaturated , but this is a matter of taste . I like the heavy balck Framework , too .

hi györgy. the colors are obviously saturated but not too much (could even be a little bit less, imo), just enough to make this view more appealing to some than it probably was in real. in case of "showing the truth" in photography, saturating the colors are equal to monochrome treatment: they are both "cheating" in my book. and i love cheating which is done in acceptable limits. the truth is, these acceptable limits are quite variable from people to people, and there is nothing more normal than that...
anyway, the scots found a great place to build the castle and your vantage point was the best to present it. how i wish i was there, and a photo is a success when it makes people say so :)

Hello, an absolutely stunning image of the castle and the sea. Good framing too. Excellent quality throughout and a good view of the castle from the other side of the cove.

Hello Gyorgy - The battle rages on regarding saturation and what is too much. I see photography as an intensely subjective subject where rights and wrongs shouldn't exist. To me what is important is the photographer's vision and intention. As they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder Personally, I may drop the saturation a knotch but I love the composition and you present beautiful Scotland at her finest. I look forward to seeing more. Warm regards Rosemary

Early autumn light in Scotland is best time for photographers, Gyorgy - and this picture shows it superbly.
Amazing green rocky cliff with old ruins atop, superbly taken from an even higher POV.
Have a nice weekend,
