You're making extraordinary shots and this one is beautiful in every aspect. POV is great and makes "splitting" story, that I like. And of course, I love HDR and you made it great. Just at the edge od "natural" and I love it!
Great work! Goes to favs! :-)

Stunning result of your work with HDR.
Sharpnes, no need to be 'sharper', it should made it unnatural'.
Composition and the reflection in the water, makes it a perfect looking picture.
Best regards, Jan

a commendable effort here, in terms of the exposure.
I think clarity is pretty decent as well.
Best regards, Daniel

Like the composition here. The main building is nicely of centre and the edgy wall act as the miror line between reality and reflection. Superb clear colours. The dark almost purple sky creates a fine evening mood.
Great posting David!
This is a WOW type of image. I love the detail in this HDR. I am used to seeing these types of walls around the Imperial Gardens in Tokyo but the castle is new to me.
I think the reflections and the detail in the rock are outstanding.
I'd probably give a left arm of a right leg for a shot like this!
I keep scrolling up to look at it!! Very well done, is this one going on your wall?
Oh man!! This rocks David! LOVE the glow of the castle, but yet you can see the rocks in the FG! That is what HDR does for you and I love it! The combo of blue and yellow is real nice! what a cool moat! Any gators in there? Nice work!

Non "butch" tripod notwithstanding, the composition and good lighting of this image saves the day for whatever little sharpness might have been given up.
Excellent job; I've seen this in person many times but never with this visual impact.

This is not bad at all - probably one of my favourites you've posted. Sharpness looks fine, maybe at full res it loses a bit. Good HDR to give it that very slight surreal sort of look.

David, You certainly have the HDR combo perfected. This is awesome. I really like the reflection in the water as well as the lighting effect on the castle. Very interesting image. Well done! Lisa

Hi dear friend,
interesting textures in it.
Amazing view and reflections.
I like the contrast between the warm and cold tones.
Nicely seen and presented.
Have a lovely day.

Super reflections in this shot, David. There is a lot of dark and unused space in this image, which in my opinion adds to the mystique. Wonderful interpretative shot! Cheers and prosit!
