Well-chosen viewpoint, showing how the castle dominates the field in front of it (and the village).

I think this may be a tad overexposed - the cloud highlights look as if they were blown, nad have been pulled back, lowering the overall contrast. The exposure seems a bit generous for bright sun in summer, despite the minus 1 stop compensation. It's jsut right for the dark foliage, but the sky suffers for it.

I'm sure the digital gurus have ways to deal with this (short of HDR, which I jsut don't understand!) - I think I'd have played around with more minus compensation, and then fiddled with levels to improve tone in the vegetation.

Happy holidays there...
