Wow, that doesn't look real!

That chateau looks so typically French though, and very well captured, I like it lots!

John.

Such a beautiful chateau, surrounded by olive trees and overlooking a valley of pine trees (oh, typical mediterranean!) I think it also has its vineyard on the slope of the hill where it stands..Looks like a good place to raise vine species good for wine!
Some castles may also provide accomodation to the visitors, right? I now can barely remember staying in a chateau in Tolouse called Olivie Chateau when I was a petit child..

I have been completely blown away by your shot its great! I'm really new to digital photography, having owned my first dslr for about 2 months and your shot is really inspirational.

I'm planning on purchasing some photo editing software, probably PS Elements (only a beginner!) and am interested to find out if effects like you have done could be acheived with elements or is more advanced software required?

Thanks for your advice!
