Good Afternoon

Firstly I would like to say Happy New Year to all on EPZ Grin It's been a while since I have uploaded, and I have made it one of my resolutions to visit EPZ more often.

Today's picture was taken back in September inside Rochester Castle, where you can walk up quite a few steps to the top. The Castle Keep stands 113 feet high and consists of 3 floors above a basement. The views from the top are amazing, in particular Rochester Cathedral below and on a clear day you can see for miles. This shot was taken from the third floor, and although the walkways are safe.... I still felt a little "heady" whilst being that high up Tongue I have also done a black and white version.

Hope you like these, as ever your comments would be most appreciated.

I hope you are all well, and keeping warm. Thank you for looking,

Love Julie

'Heady' is just what I would call the view, Julie. I don't really think I could stand closer to the edge than this!
I think the b&w version is slightly more contrasty, which in this case I prefer. If you were going for the romantic haunted-castle look I would go for less contrast - but this is definitely scary Gothic!
A very Happy New Year to you too.
Regards
Bill

Great viewpoint to see so much of the interior in a single frame, Julie, and good control os exposure with such a range of lighting. For myself, the colour version says so much more to me as there is a great range of colour in the stonework.

And a happy New Year to you and John too.

Thank you for your comments..... Bill, I did a black & white to try and show the depth into the basement, not sure if I pulled it off, but would have to say my favourite is the colour version, there are so many colours on the stones with wear and obviously the weather over the centuries, it was the first time that we have actually been inside the Keep, not keen on heights, but it is well worth visiting, and the views of the Medway Towns, let alone the Cathedral opposite the Castle from 113 feet height is well worth the walk up the uneven stone stairway Grin

A Happy New Year to you and your family, Julie!
An excellent image to start 2014 with - I love the POV.
What an impressive building.

I do liked the colour version with the subtle differences in stone colour, but I prefer the mono version. Always worth trying one in cases like this.
