Such wonderful/unusual light, and you've captured it well.

Thanks for voting and the comments. The picture was processed from one exposure, it was tone mapped in Photomatix, but I wouldn't say that it was done with HDR technique. The blue sky cast on the left is how it was at the moment of taking the picture, and it looks the same way on the original. I have to admit that Scotland is a beautiful place, and very photogenic IMO, a highly recommended spot for a photographic adventure.

Amazing scene, fit into the frame perfectly, looks great with HDR too.

I've been here and shot this landmark from many perspectives. But your photo is about the best I've seen of Eilean Donan. Thanks for the great photo ... and for the nostalgia trip.

The POV and tones are beautiful. Great PP too. Stunning... 10
(only suggestion is removing the spire next to the tree, but that's REALLY nitpicking!)

Gorgeous view - really nice use of the foreground elements.

I absolutely love the soft feel of this shot! It's so perfect. I wish the top of the castle was a little brighter to fit with the front side of it, but that's minimal. The water looks very good!

Nicely composed with good foreground interest. The blue area on the left side of the sky is a little bit weird for me, especially as it seems to be extending over the hill area.

lovely...good drama in the clouds...I am not a fan of central horizons in most cases and here is an image where I would have preferred a differnt composition...good overall 7
