I like this Doug. The sun through the tree catches the eye first, the castle is then a surprise.

Now that's special - magical light, even better shadows, and enough detail and texture in them.

I like this very much Dougie. Good comp and I like the contrast between the bright sky and the dark foreground.

Hope you're feeling better now.

You have done well to avoid the glare from the sun and as usual the composition is spot on.

Clever use of the tree to trap the strong light. Looks like a great spot. A fine shot.
