    ... well the remains of it anyway!

    Hmm after much debate over which gallery to post these in I settled for Landscape and Nature, no idea why, but anyway, here goes...

    I spent a while here trying to capture a few different images of this old castle... getting into shooting in RAW and using manual mode a lot more so trying to 'up the bar' with my photos so to speak. Hopefully these are a little better than what I would have been producing a few months back.

    Feedback good/bad/ugly appreciated!

    Hey there, thanks! Beginner schminner! Everyones got a point of view!... thanks for the comments!

    You're probably right about the 4th, I've noticed quite a few variations between my pc monitor and my laptop... and I processed it on my laptop where it looks quite different to now on my pc monitor! I may give the sepia a go too, thanks!

    Edit: Cool you're from Belfast too, hello! :biggrin:

    great shots becky, love these. my fav is #2, just love the softness of the grass/clouds and gentle slope of the hill contrasted with the hard edge of the remains. the pov and comp are outstanding in that one.

    #3 is a close second for me, really great shot with the foreground/background as already mentioned, great eye on that one... is it tilted a little or just the natural slope? the remains in the background appear to have a "leaning tower of pisa" thing going on... was there some shade falling on the 'shrooms? some of them seem a little dark, not sure if burning would help 'em or not...

    awesome stuff... :thumbup:

    Hey, I have only had my morning coffee and I still a) like the POV of the "mushroom invasion" photo very much, it sure is something different, and b) I find Tim's interpretation/description very apt. Well seen, Becky. Well commented, Tim :D.

    And I also like the light in Photo 1.
    Have tried RAW before ... but only twice so far. I would need to get myself more memory cards if I really wanted to explore RAW-shooting more, I guess (but ok, I don't go away from home for 12 days ALWAYS, and could therefore easily come back and unload my card content into my computer ... :scratch: ... so more RAW-shooting you say?)
