i don't need the map view to see where this one is located :)
really enjoyed reading that note, these castles always seem to have the best histories and read-ups.
If you were a multi multi millionaire, would you purchase one of these Castles? Imagine owning this place!
your shot has that HDR type of look to it, but i guess its the post processing that you've done, the layering perhaps?
the exposure and lighting on the grassy portions at the base of the Castle is A+, love that.
its another winner in my books!
Hey, did you do that plane ride near/over Old Man Storr yet?

I like a lot this picture. Well observed and beautifully composed shot. I like the slight distortion in the reflections in the windows. The woman in red is well placed in the frame. I`m sure the cup of coffe tasted perfect. Fine shot:) TFS.

I could look at these all day long, doesn't bother me at all.
it also brings back alot of fond memories.
nice to see a couple of different colors here too, and also the small narrower patio to the left of the larger patio deck.
warm light, attractive colors and exposure

Magnificent shot this. Splendid colours and a well thought composition. Especially I like how the fine light is projecting the red color of the lamp post on the yellow wall. The glimpse of flowers in the right part is a nice touch too. Excellent - like it a lot:) Thanks.

Here is a fine combination of church and castle and a lovely scenery. Georgia is really a very scenic country. The building to the right with the rusty roof seems to belong to another era in the country's history, which is alright with me. As always you have handled the light and colours very well and found a good POV for the photo.

This spectacular view far into the distance of a richly cultivated area is covered in the most attractive golden light. In the sky I love how the light is breaking through the clouds and the dark clouds seem to be shrinking away above the horizon. It's a stunning view of a beautiful scenery and a very well exposed photo with well saturated colors.

these shots where the Church fills up the entire frame are some of my favorites.
and you couldn't have asked for better lighting conditions in this one. its brilliantly illuminated.
smart choice to move over to the side like this to capture it.

I like these shots because there's such a strong graphic component to them, when you move it up and down the screen it hurts the eyes. Its as if its in full movement.
looking at your shots, i makes me want to book a flight to nyc today! gotta get back

oh...i really really like this one my friend.
there's just something about the color combinations. the two contrasting yellows, the bright red, and the royal blues.
love the overall look and feel to the image, smartly composed too. Cheers

She's not really Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, but she looks very nice and it's a fine portrait. She leans her head perfectly in a very fine light and her bright hijab makes the photo impossible to miss.
PS I still remember concerts with The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix as among the most important events of my distant youth. The Cream too.

This is a lot more than just fine colours, it's also a very elegant composition with good features in every part. I don't have to point them all out, just among them I want to mention the cloud hanging just over the hill and the little yellow buoy which you nicely included. The brightness and clarity is lovely.
Have a nice weekend,

Happy birthday! Beautiful shot and a fine way to proudly display the flag. The movement of the water matches the movement of the flag but the movement is very gentle. Really nicely done.
Best wishes from Ireland :)

I love the almost Baronial style of this castle, it's a big hulking mass, made to intimidate. But there is deliberate and subtle flourishes to the design. Perhaps I am too used to plain Norman castles. Love the little island, when i won the euromillions if buy something like this for the laugh :)

A fine picture from Brussels, Gy. A telling combination of Flemish baroque and Moroccan celebration, and then in the middle the city official in 19th century style clothes and probably speaking French. And then a German car and probably lots of Asian mobile phones. Welcome to the 21st century!
