Sergei, what makes this picture so remarkable is the quality of the light on the castle. Despite the grey clouds all over in the sky, you captured probably a brief moment of early (or late) sunshine on the construction. Without this, the picture would not have been so striking. I'm going to Scotland for two weeks the first two weeks of October and this is exactly the kind of light I wish to grasp. Very well done. Composition: 7 (this is my only criticism, I would have prefered a lower viewpoint to add drama. It looks a bit like the shot was taken from a certain height, boat?). Technique: 10. Originality: 8. Impact: 9. Overall: 8.5.

As everyone else has mentioned, I love the lighting in this photo Sergei. The light on the castle is particularly nice. I also like the beautiful cloud formations and soft reflections in the water. It looks like a beautiful place. Welcome back!

Sergei the light on the castle is beautiful. It is a beautiful image. What a wonderful place to get to visit. Were you able to tour inside the castle? It's boggles the imagination to think of how old this is. Glad to have you home. Take care. Barb.

A fabulous scene, nicely presented,. An incredible old fighting fortress well captured here in fair lighting and fantastic clouds,,.

As it has been said, fantastic light and clouds. I'd like to trim a bit from the right and left.

36 Amuletum ( )   (8/19/2002 8:20:43 AM)
Okay, I'm jumping on the bandwagon a little late, but this is really lovely. As noted by almost everyone else, it's the golden glow that makes this shot and a very dramatic sky. Interesting you got any light with all those clouds so you must have been very patient. We have an old fort in St. Augustine, Florida that this photo reminds me of and I have taken countless pictures of. Quite lovely, Sergei - and welcome home.
37 Morca   (8/19/2002 9:41:22 AM)
Good composition.
Great definition and lightning.
38 Terry Forrest (Teresa Forrest)   (8/19/2002 11:27:54 PM)
Welcome back, Sergei - so nice to have you back!! Maria would love this, Sergei, as do I. Hopefully she will be home soon and out of the hospital so she can see it. I like your composition, the great sky, the warm light and in particular, the reflections. (9)
39 mortipher   (8/20/2002 6:19:44 AM)

Fantastic light and compsotion!
42 Terry Forrest (Teresa Forrest)   (8/26/2002 8:13:42 PM)
Maria said "It's Sergei's. You can't give him less than a 9! Very pretty! Looks like something out of Camelot."
43 Bill Taylor   (8/26/2002 8:32:25 PM)
You can give him a 6 Terry, he won't know the difference :-)) , or would he.. Very nice, Sergei , good for at least a 9
44 Terry Forrest (Teresa Forrest)   (8/26/2002 8:37:17 PM)
Bill Taylor, you rat fink!! (Maria was thinking the same thing!) I hardly ever give anyone a 6!!
