Photographer's Note

This is a view of the town of Český Krumlov with, in the background, the town's castle with its Trompe l'oeil painted walls and, in the foreground, the former Church and hospital of St. Jodock (or St. Jost)and other buildings of the town.

History of Český Krumlov Castle:
The tall rock cliffs jutting out over the Vltava River were populated long before the oldest parts of today's castle were founded. The first settlement of the castle promontory dates back to the Bronze Age.
The original Gothic castle was founded by the Lords of Krumlov some time before 1250. The current chateau dates from the 18th century. The present chateau complex is one of the largest in Central Europe and became a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1992.

Technical: Cropped, saturated, sharpened and noise reduction applied. I am not very happy with the way the sky turned out. Can anyone suggest what I did wrong or how to improve it?
