A breathtaking view! Very well composed, and I may have to go visit that castle - looks amazing. I really like the gradation of the tones, too.

Very good range of tones in the background, and an interesting story in the foreground. I also like the effect of the long lens projecting the foreground into the vast expanse in the back.

very nice. i'd love to know where this is. The only thing i don't like about the picture is the houses on the far hill, but i won't fault you, i'm sure you didn't build them. ;)

Wow that's very impressive. That patch of grass looks greenish to me, is this a duotone or a b&w? 9
