Welcome Jachol! Your shot arose admiration in meabout the castle. I also appreciated your setting the metering modeat center weighted avarage. Yet the image looks somewhat blue cast to me due tosome probable misfit of the prevailing lighting conditions to the White Balance setting of your camera at the time of shooting, IMO.Here'smy quick edit tocompare. Hope you don't mind

Hi bahadir, Thanks for your comments, and no I don't mind the tweak, light that day was very variable we seemed to be surrounded by thunderstorms, though we were never badly affected ourselves, because of this I left white balance on auto, I usually shoot with aperture priority. I'll be posting more pics of the castle later and welcome your further comments. ... Jack.
Edit. It may interest you that the crested crane in my avatar was shot at this location.

A couple of other pics of the castle, it's noticeable light was brighter in these shots. ... Jack.
Edit ... not sure how to get more than one shot in a post ???.

These are lovely photos and the colours are more vivid. I appreciate your concern for the foreground (as long as it does not hinder the subject!) Well, to be able to put multiple shots in one post I think you should have an photo albumon the net. Btw, your avatar is so lovable

The castle is on an island in the middle of a lake, to get shots from this side of the castle, it's difficult not to have foliage in the foreground, I do like to show some foreground content to give my pics depth, but not to the degree that it detracts from the main subject.
My main PC is down at the moment so I can't access the files on it, I'm unable to post further pictures at the moment :sad: ... Jack.

I think in the Main Building shot the vast foreground tend to reduce the emphasize of the edifice. Some cropping or, if possible, a retake whose pointof view is lower than the eye level would do some better. And for the wishing well, funny, butseeing your photo, I alsofelt to throw one! Well,not because I believe in its luck but at least to enjoy the start up ritualof a dreamto be realized For a Canon XTI perhaps! Thanks for sharing, Jack.
