You may be right about the castle Al, but the foreground makes up for it. A lovely shot.

The arrow shaped rocks take one out into the waters and the semi-sunken branch then points out the Castle so precisely: I bet this viewpoint took some time to locate, but effective it is too.
Look as if the weather was not too clement, but you have captured the prevailing atmosphere very nicely too and avoided 'tarting up' the image by enhancing colour, contrast, etc.
I feel I am seeing the scene exactly as you saw it, just the way I prefer to capture my landscapes.

Ronnie summed it up well, Al. The triangular shape at the bottom was the first thing I noticed. The natural tones look good and the branch links the front to the back of the image.

I didn't notice the castle Al, the reason being the way the rocks point the way in to the image, followed by your beastie and then the arrow tip of tree on the island giving that last step into the mountains. If your aim was a view if the castle, well maybe it is just a tad hidden, but the overall image is of a wonderful vista with the viewer carried into the shot by a series of subliminal pointers. Very cleverly composed!
