beautiful photo, where you were your to make the photo. Kisses
Good alignment, Matthew. Impressive place.
WOW .. THATS VERY HISTORIC!
Thank you all for your comments. redi, there is a tower called the 'Great Tower' which is higher than the rest of the castle.
According to Wikipedia, the castle was used as a location for a Led Zeppelin video and a Terry Gilliam film.
This is a great shot, Matthew. Did you shoot it with a wide-angle lens, maybe 18-24 mm? Love the muted colors and brooding clouds.
Thanks Chip. Close guess with the lens, it's 12-24mm.
I've darkened the clouds a little, but other than that there's no photoshop this time.
Great shot Matthew! When I see such great photos I regret having only a compact camera... :(, It does not allow me to shoot wide angle pictures
Thanks Vasco. You have some pretty impressive photos yourself, with 'only' a compact camera :)
Thanks Matthew. As Mr. Chip says: It's the photographer and not the camera that makes a good photo. He's probably wright, although luck is an essential factor with me, also
luck is an essential factor - for me too, until I get the power to control the weather!
British weather? Mmmm.... Luck is INDEED an essential factor!!!
BTW, an amazing angle for a great pic.
Thanks Reynald. I'll go back one day when it is sunny. Of course as the castle is in Wales, I stand even less chance of great weather!
Maybe you can shoot it for HDR processing. Then you can play to get a dramatic image! Clouds look fantastic in HDR, as here or here. I like the subdued effect, not the strong hdr
Good point, I might try faking it with the original RAW image. You're right the clouds in those two look great - I am also not too keen on the 'overcooked' effect that sometimes happens.
Yes. Photomatix software can indeed "HDR-ize" a RAW image. Anyway, subtelty is soooo hard to get.
Interesting angle, like it :)
Thanks, glad you like it. Fortunately there weren't too many steps to climb for the view.
