This was a bit of an experiment with HDR software Photomatix. It was generated from a single RAW file and resulted in a psuedo HDR image. I was quite happy with the result as the original photo was a bit flat, taken on a cold day before Christmas. The clouds in the sky are perhaps a little bit exagerated but I think it adds to the general scene.
The subject is Linlithgow Palace and St Michael's Church (with the modern sculpture on the roof) viewed from the opposite shore of Linlithgow Loch. Linlithgow is situated in West Lothian, Scotland. The Palace was the birth place of Mary Queen of Scots and all of the Stewart Kings lived here at one time. Well worth a visit. I live a few miles away from the town but it is a favourite walk around the Loch.
