I really think this view, which shows the island setting of the castle, adds a sense of lonely romance. It sort of rekindles memories of childhood stories, where maidens were locked away in a turret of a castle, waiting to be rescued!
You have composed the scene well and handled the light successfully, to give a sharp exposure. The umbrella obviously did its job, too.
In many cases, this is natural for Scottish castles, the weather can be overcast and wet quite often!
My warm regards,

Ciao caro Carlo,
This is delightful!
The colours are all so strong and relate beautifully to one another in this well composed photograph.
Though the feature is simple, it makes a superb focal image which benefits from the reflections and the textural details.
My warm regards,

I could easily say this was taken in Israel. There is a small part in our country, near the sea-of-Galilie that is very similar to this landscape.
Mingling colors and light upon made so attractive picture.
Bom fim de semana,

There are no less than 5 diff. architecture' styles on one photo, and each looking with bright shine and vivid colors. Chosen well to add the black iron-wrought bars on left, though it was impossible to avoid the garbage trollies. The strip of blue sky is a nice added coilor.
Buen fin de semana,

Indeed a different glow, Ourania.
The colors are marvelous, vividly appearing and there is a good view across the bay. Nicely combined with the corner wall on left and the tree on the other side, with good view through.
Kalispera and a nice weekend,

Most magnificent night pic. of Manhattan, superbly taken and allocated from sea to city and sky.
Long shutter setting made the water with a silky look.
Bravo for that immaculate photojob.

Colours, detail and clarity are most pleasing, adding more depth and interest. The chopper on top and the visitors stand out as strong and catchy focal points.
I can see your point there. Excellent angle, spaciousness and love the treatment, Thanks to your explanations.

Your shooting angle echoes the extensive view of the harbour and the proud looking galleons with jutting masts reaching out the sky. The soft blue water and sky give us the extra contrast with some bright colours included. I think you've caught the real moment there. Congrats

I Love how you've captured this shot. It's so cool 'cos the horses and the carriage are so clearly the subject here and this is reinforced by how the 'not-so-happy-man' is looking at or into the camera. It seems to fit the scene really well with a nice range of tones and contrast...

Look so calm!
Great to see that ferrying system is still in use there, i guess this must be a rare sight but it makes an interesting part of everyday life. Compo is always supreme, elements are cleverly laid out and richness in color with excellent reflections are the strong keys to this successful picture.
PS I had the same experience in 2003 on this type of cable ferry pulled manually across Breede river in Western Cape, South Africa.
