Since every other EPZ 'tog' has apparently, at some time, uploaded a picture of Eilean Donan Castle, why should I be left out? My claim to uniqueness is that it is an unplanned panoramic, having been created from two (slightly mismatched) frames taken from very slightly different viewpoints. Can you see the join? Wink. The distant mountains of Skye are visible, I think, just to the left of the castle.

Must be viewed BIG Smile

A nice shot and the join is well disguised!

Would have liked to see one furher frame to the left of the castle, that would then put the castle on a third rather than in the centre of the frame. Great shot as is. Mike

Well i feel left out now Wink never had the pleasure of seeing this castle John! Wonderful colours both in the sky and fg, like the hint of reflection too.

Mike, I wish I had that frame too, the mountains behind are very impressive (although you might have had to scroll to see it all). Unfortunately this was not a planned sequence. The visit was in Sept. 2003, I know better these days & have a light weight tripod & pano. head (& a D200 that's streets ahead of the D100 Wink).

Thanks, everyone else too, for c&C so far.

John

A wonderfully balanced image tonally, and I think the castle
in the centre of the image really works too.
My only minor caveat, is the rock in the bottom right hand corner, seems to distract a little, and add nothing, perhaps because thee is not enough of it, but I like it very much nonetheless.

Great work John, I'm still not sure where the join is! I often find it is the sky that gives the join away but not here.
Excellent!

Unplanned or not it's come out very well with excellent detail and clarity throughout!

Never been there, never done it, never got the Tshirt.
But I do like this image, especially the arched bridge, reflection and clouds.

Perfect time of morning for the shot, wonderful clear conditions, and no, the join isn't obvious to me.

The most photographed motif in Scotland - but who wonders? Superb shot of a great scene.

Isn't this such a wonderful setting for a castle! I don't care that it is a reconstruction .... it still takes my breath away . You have done a great presentation of this most loved monument ... and no, I can't see any join!!! Excellent work John.
