Brougham Castle is a historical building located about 2 miles (3.2 km) to the south-east of Penrith, Cumbria, England. Founded by Roger de Vieuxpont in the early 13th century on the site of a Roman fort, it sits near the confluence of the rivers Eamont and Lowther. In its earliest form, the castle consisted of a stone keep, with an enclosure protected by a timber bank and a wooden palisade.

I like the atmosphere of this but it feels like there are too many things within the frame and the mist means that none of them is particularly prominent. Perhaps a tighter crop, losing much of the sky and the near bank of the moat/river would simplify things a bit? I'd also be tempted by black and white, since the different regions of green, orange, blue-grey and red are also a bit confusing.
