Part of the August critique 4 critique in the Young-photo-club

Really cool castle :) I like the detail you were able to capture and bring out in the clouds.  In post processing, I personally would have cropped out a bit of the left side, to get rid of the tree branches entering the frame because they are a bit distracting, and it would center the castle a bit more.  In taking the photo, I would have tried to get a bit more of the ground included so you can see the base of the castle.  Lastly, in post-processing, I would have added clarity and contrast to the castle to make it pop out a bit more.  It's a bit monochromatic in comparison to the great contrast in the rest of the photo. 

Very interesting subject though, my favorite things are old and/or abandoned buildings :)

Thank you for your remarks. Unfortunately I don't show more of the ground as there was a disturbing fence that would ruin the entire shot.
Decided to keep the branches just to show also the surrounding but for sure your are right with the castle. I just tried not to process it that much and to show the photo as it was taken.

Looks threatening!

Just stormy, but the sun on the castle gives a bit of a bright mood

Nice, most pictures of that castle are taken from the other side, I think, so this was a nice new view.

Yes, I also have one from the other side but this was another angle and think was quite good

At least much more original and still great!

Diese Stimmung hat sich der Erbauer seines Schlosses wohl nicht träumen lassen.

The first thing I've said when I seen this photo was: "vara che luce!"
Good, really good.

Thank you. I think the stormy clouds were contributing to the final effect of the photo
