The weather wasn't co-operating, but I was able to set up my tripod and use some graduated filters to bring out and color the sky. There has also been some post processing here.

That's a very colorful capture. The sky was brought up nice with your Cokin filter. To me it almost looks like a miniature set. Great shot and TFS.

Could you elaborate on the post-processing you've done?

Very nice colors and PP. that's look like advertissing for whisky. really nice .

Guy this is very mystical. I expect to see a knight cross the bridge at any second! Very pastoral setting here and you did a great job regardless of the weather. b

I really like this photo. My only nit-picking thing is the uneven exposure on the mountain and sky. I really do like the contrasting colors, though. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice shot! This blurness that your photo has from the filters is ideal. Very nice!

Nice effect. Looks like an oil painting suitable for wall hanging. Well done.

nice one!
it looks like it's been taken in the midlle ages...
i like the compo and horizon.
good job!

Une photographie qui donne une impression de relief. Une belle réussite Dan.
Very well done.

I have seen this one already, I think. Or I has just a dream... about it.
Very nice scenery Dan. Looks like a Age of Empires Mythology. ;-)
Very well done.
Regards, Don.

This is a wonderful shot, Dan. I like the sharp castle and the blurry surrundings, this just like a tale. Amazing shot, and good pp.

Like a scene from the Lord of the rings. I like it. Regards, Djenno

It looks like a fairy tale! great effects!I liek the contrast between the god/yellow tones and the green landscape!

The effects of the filter has really given this image a magnificant effect. Good use of the gaussian blur, as it has resulted in giving this a very theatrical feel. Well done, Dan.

truly magical shot Dan! oh my goodness.. Eilean Donan is one of my favorite castles in the world and this is such a great photograph of it... it had to go straight into my favorites! be interesting to know what PP work was done.. the lighting and colours are just hypnotic here.. love love love! thanks for sharing this gem :) i'm in dreamland now.. - Ayda

Quelle merveille que tu nous présente! L'image démontre un spectacle fabuleux accentué par l'excellent travail de pp! Je meuis pendant un instant évadée dans un bonne de princesses et de princes. Merci, c'est cela la magie de la photo!
