Good afternoon Tamara,
so I do not miss the connection, I also looked at yesterday's presentation, which is very nice. The color choice for today's presentation conveys a sense of nostalgia. I like it very much. On both images, the castle looks very mysterious and interesting. Both representations liked it very much. Have a nice day and all the best. Dear greetings Christel

13 Jul 2010 2:14pm

@Christel: I tried to show the castle in different ways (also the 2 last pictures are completely different). It was very funny to make all these effects. I'm glad you like it Christel. Many thanks for your kind comment ! Have a wonderful day :)

Pravin Patade from Fremont, United States

Beautiful and nice processing. I wish I could see more on the left side, somehow I felt it should not have been in the centre, but hey it's just my thought :)

16 Jul 2010 2:50am

@Pravin Patade: I took a lot of photos that day (many angles) but I decided to process this one because of the nice reflections. But you're completely right, it's a little bit centered... should have cropped or "decenter". Thank you very much for your inputs Pravin, highly appreciated :)
