This is another photo of Castle Hill... I submitted a similar one a few days ago, the general consensus is that it was too saturated. I'm interested to see what people think of this one... still very saturated but I think looks a little more natural. If people don't like it, I'll post one with less vivid colours.
Taken with a circular polariser.

It is awesome ! I always liked castles, and I liked sunset... That's a winner combo !
The sky going from red to blue is unbelivable !
My only correction would be to clone out the antennas on the top of the tower.

Fantastic photo! Marvelous sunset colors, exciting lighting! Extra fine composition! Bravo!

I love this shot! The colours are absolutely stunning and you composition great. The sky and light is beautiful. Excellent details and sharpness. A magical place, looks like it taken from a fairytale.

I find it beautiful. Very saturate with a nice contrast between left part and right part of the photo. Nice lighting on the castle. Nice!

I think this great, amzingly moody, with a large range of colours.

maybe it's more saturated but it's amazing
damsmad (173) 2004-09-23 7:12
Can't believe my eyes, they must deveive me... what a shot! Brilliant, marvellous, amazing! Wipe that antenna and you've got a perfect wonderful picture.

Bob, I prefer this shot as the other one you posted few days ago. First, I prefere the horizontal framing, I thing that it gives a more perspective view.
About the colors, they are great indeed. The clouds are greatly managed and the orange color and the right part is terrific.
How can you have such result ? With a filter?
SophieL (6038) 2004-09-23 7:25
The colors are so unreal that they could very well be real! :)
I missed the first posting and I think I like this one better, the horizontal composition giving more room to the clouds. Colors and light are beautiful, especially on the clouds and tower. It feels like a set for a fantasy movie (quite a "lord of the rings" atmosphere! :).

Le contraste des couleurs, vert et orange, est une solution gagnante car orange est la complémentaire du vert. Beau sujet, couleurs magnifiques, belle photo. Bien vu.
The contrast of the colors, green and orange, is a gaining solution orange bus is complementary green. Prone beautiful, splendid colors, beautiful photo. Well considering.

Bob, this is nice shot!
Wonderful picture and excellent composition with great colours and light! It is very impressive shot.
I like lighting on the castle and colours clouds. Excellent details and sharpness. A magical place, looks like it taken from a fairy story.
Thanks for sharing !

Intriguing composition with strong colors and amazing clouds. Fantasy atmosphere. I'd like to see also the untouched version.

Felicitations Bob, les couleurs sont magnifiques, le paysage sublime et la composition supeberbe, encore Bravo pour ce cliché parfaitement réussi.

Where are the warriors ? it looks like a XXVII th century war scene, without the soldiers but with a fire burning in the background. One could image a lot of stories just looking at this pic.
Very good postprocessing job, I can't imagine that these colors are in reliaty as saturated as shown. Nevertheless there is something very smooth about it that I like a lot.
It sure makes a stunning and beautiful image.
igor_wo (4) 2004-09-23 10:52
it is almost seen with a painters eye..
I like it very much even though its worked at,.
Jeppe (18654) 2004-09-23 13:38
Truly an amazing sky and a fantastic light you got on this great capture - thanks for sharing this wonderful work.
natlo (209) 2004-09-23 15:15
I like it a lot like that with all these colors.
bibiweb (8) 2004-09-23 16:01
I love the colors... almost like a painting!
Thanks for sharing this with us Bob.
Carma (2440) 2004-09-23 16:29
Impresive, espesially in colours. More like painting.
Auslander (353) 2004-11-25 7:54
I love the effect. So awesome. Looks like it's almost real .
johnhopkins (866) 2005-03-01 20:08
As many have already said, the colours are wonderful. The tower reminds me of scenes from Lord of the Rings.
frankisch (51) 2005-05-19 4:27
à première vue on pourrait dire une peinture
très fort dans les couleurs
alekpet (4663) 2005-06-16 10:11
I think that you should keep the colors as they are. I like it a lot! All colors of the rainbow are there! Only a rainbow missing :)
jsec (2154) 2005-06-16 19:41
I know I slated your mother and son image, but I would like to say I admire your work, especially this. Great job.
mayabee (374) 2005-10-02 15:29

it doesnot matter about extra saturation. You have done it so carefully that no colors mix with other. Such a wonderful work Bob. Its fantastic
dipak (257) 2005-11-15 18:06
You really have captured the beautiful color. Sky is amazing. Very nice photo. Well done.
beatak (578) 2006-08-04 13:10

I Bob, i like the result very much. This sky is spectacular.
Nice composition with a great contrast of colours and POV.
Thanks for sharing and note.
jirivrobel (542) 2007-06-03 15:34
It must have looked like that. Nobody would be able to invent anything like that :-) Great photo.
bend1k (934) 2007-06-05 8:28
i like the colors but i think i see some noise on the orange clouds
dilane (861) 2007-06-06 5:35
je ne sais plus comment je suis arrivé à cette photo, mais elle m'a interpellé par son côté fantastique dû à une bonne dose de saturation. Personnellement j'aime.
korbee (6619) 2007-06-10 7:33
Although nearly all of your gallery is great,this one knocks all out bob.
danyy (0) 2007-06-12 16:59
il y a pas mal de photos impressionnates dans ta gallerie et celle-ci me plait vraiment beaucoup.
Les couleurs sont fortes, les jeux de lumières puissants.
Pas de défauts dans le cadrage et la mise au point.
De très bon travail.

abulafia (4900) 2008-02-28 4:46
Wow Bob, even better!
Great colors (not that i have any complaints about the other one) and this thick orange sky looks more like heavy smoke blowing in.
coco (30439) 2009-01-06 23:55
The light of the photo is a golden one and the colours are really beautiful.
Very well done.
