To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


f/2.8, 1/75, ISO 100, overcast conditions mid afternoon, no flash. Converted to sepia all but archway, added "sun" w/mystical lighting in archway. Wanted the effect that you could walk through archway to the time when the castle would have been in all its glory, but the rest of the aged portion to show the ruin and age of it today.
