Default Bodiam Castle

Had a little time this afternoon and was looking at some old trip shots. Found these of Bodiam Castle but they were all shot around noonish on a bright day, washed out and uninteresting.

I tried to bring them back to life adding a little mood to the shots.

Did it work...????

One more for your perusal. Made for a nice day out, nice café on the grounds and "The Castle Pub" right outside the gate...of course..

Bodiam Castle
Bodiam, Robertsbridge, East Sussex

I didn't want to go in competition with the postcard guy there.

Some very nice experiments Ken!
They are a few that springing out, overall I like them all.

Are these HDR experiments?

Thanks for the comments guys. I know they're not great in the classic photo sense. Just a little added interest.
Yes Steven, great day out for families. Boys and girls can let the imagination and their bodies run riot around there with few restrictions. There's plenty of places to climb the wall or ruins or just hide inside.
Or just lock them in the stocks.!

With a bit of luck they'll never be found again. It's just not Disneyland..

I don't understand why no one has spray painted their names on the walls. That just happened to a brick wall of our office building, which is in the middle of an office park.

I like shots like these, I always wonder when I look at them what went on when the place was being lived in. If we could only view the past.

Um, you're kidding, right? Unless you were the Lord in charge, you really didn't want to know what went on in the Middle Age castles or manor homes.

Life is better now. Trust me on this - those "romantic" old times weren't very romantic unless you were wealthy. And if you were, rivalries and avarice tended to shorten your life expectancy anyway.
