Hi Ian,

this is apicture of a fine imposing castle, but IMo it sufferes drom a couple of faults which could be fixed.
Firstly, it sufferes from converging verticals - common when trying to fit a tall building into a frame. if you use an image editing package it might have a transform or distort tool where you can pinch out these slnating sides back to nearer the vertical. i think part of the problem as well is that there sem=ems to be an overall tilt tover to the right, as seen when you line up on the verticals of the windows. Again this can be straightened with a slight rotation.

My other concern os with the light - it's quite harsh and unflattering, and the picture's a bit overexposed. i think you couldinprove it by darkening and increasing the contrast at the same time - you'd have to experiment to get the mix right.

Anyway,these are just my thoughts, hope they're some help
