Photographer's Note

"Dobó square is the most unified and closed square of the town. The statues of Zsigmod Kisfaludi Stóbl and Lajos Strobl commemorate the heroic victory over the siege of 1552 against the superior Turkish army. The Turkish army counted some 40-50 thousand people while there were only 2000 defenders in the castle. Captain István Dobó and his fistful of people swore to protect and not to hand over the castle. After the 40-day siege the Turkish army gave up and left the area. It was the time when the defenders of Eger, the castle that was the guard of the northern areas, managed to stop the Turkish advancement."

I used Kodak film. Photoshop: desaturate, levels, smart sharpen.
