    here's y shot i took a few days ago while I was walking my dog... This shot was taken inside an old castle here in Luxembourg (the castle of Bourscheid). I had to lay down flat on my stomach to get this POV.

    I converted it to BW, and merged three different versions of the same shot to get the exposure right in the sky, the foreground and the castle. afterwards I used the transform tool to get the foreground to pop out a bit more... I'm quite pleased with my result, but if there are things you think I could improve I would reall appreciate any help!


    thank you for looking!

    I love this shot! Nice job! It looks like it's very old. I love the clouds, the textures, everything!

    Simply awesome! I wouldn't change a thing. It's very "Castle Frankenstein-ish".
