The Holy Grail

By robs    
Doune Castle was the setting for, amongst other things, the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It is about a 5 minute walk from my house and is a great place to go and photograph when there aren't too many tourists about!

Not that I have managed to take many photographs since moving 5 months ago... or indeed in the last 18 months due to study commitments....!

Converted to mono in CS2 and given a subtle tritone treatment.

It is just my kind of image -i love old castles and industrial decay - so rich in textures and tones.
Nice point of view and drama in the sky. I would have moved in a bit closer for a more dramatic shot, the top edge of the castle looks a little too burned in. I like it and a click from me.
Nice work

Interesting intro - before reading it I thought it looked more like something out of a Dracula movie. Nice postwork on this image.
