Urquhart Castle

I was driving back from the Camera Club meeting in Fort Augustus tonight and the Castle caught my attention.
I photographed it at night last year or maybe even late 2011, but this is a different angle showing the lights of Dores and the glow of Inverness:

Some blown highlights where the lights were angled awkwardly (for my purposes anyway) and a lot of black (I trimmed off plenty with the crop), but overall I was pleased with the result from the E-PL2 and 14mm pancake.

Re: Urquhart Castle

I personally, really like this a lot, the dark areas don't bother me as they reinforce the fact it is night, the lighted castle really stands out and the lights on the horizon give the whole thing depth.

Re: Urquhart Castle

I like it too....I think the crop is right for the shot....sometimes the sensor shape does not suit the image so a crop is the only way to go, I much prefer this to a multi shot stitch approach.

Re: Urquhart Castle

That's a good, striking shot. You and the camera have done very well in a difficult situation.
