Some lovely light on the castle but only after I had sat through a hailstorm!
Not quite sure if there is too much foreground?

I'm with Barbara - the foreground works. The way the rocks lean towards the light in the background fits - almost like they are bowing down to the light!. The deep colour and textures of the rocks add to the image for me. Lovely capture,

I think the balance of FG is spot on and despite no directional lighting, it is full of detail. The castle is excellent and thrown into relief by the light. I wonder if it would benefit from not being as bright on the water to the left of the castle as it's slightly distracting? Could be toned down in photoshop using some selective curves or levels.

Thanks Jacqui and Barbara - Al - I agree with you - the light was quite intense and I have already toned it down a little but maybe I could darken it a little more.
Thanks
Geoff
