It's the château de Chillon, with Lac Léman.

Unfortunately I was there a bit too late and the sun did not illuminate anymore the more photogenic side, known from the postcards.

The contrast in the background seems a little milky...i would have tried a longer lens to prevent the inward lean of the castle.

nice shot. Intersting building and background scenery. I do feel the building is "floating" in the image though. It feels like it needs something at the bottom of the picture to ground the image.

I really like this - my only fault with it is the tilting down on the left. For me it is really important to have level horizons the shoreline on this is drastically low to the left.

Very cool. I like how the misty mountains add a bit of story to it.
