Broadway Castle in Gloucestershire. A very well known Folly landmark in the area, and now one of my most photographed locations.

Basic Editing so unfortunately I can't remove the very annoying lamp to the side of the Tower that stands out like a sore thumb...

Shot in Raw, desaturated cropped and simple sharpening action.

Very nice B&W. I like that you fill the bottom edge of the picture with the building rather that standing further away (though who's to say you could have fit it all in then anyway eh)... whats the object sticking out the top left side?

A little earth would complete the view better.
