The original photo wasn't sharp enough...this is all I could do. It is one of the three castles standing on the hills around San Marino.

Hi Marija,
Very nice. Good off centered composition that includes the stairs that lead up to the castle. The exposure looks a little bit over, as the clouds in the sky are so bright, but, not so bad, in my opinion. But, the tone of your image is nice...somewhat blue...adds an certain "flavor" I can't describe but I like it. I think you did a decent job sharpening. Good job!
And welcome to TL!

When the original picture isn't good enough, you always can create something for TrekLens and you did, not bad at all. It gives some mood, something mysterious, something dramatic, medieval, and I like it very well. Maybe the picture is a little levelled, but okay, really every picture has a problem, how small it is:-)) And your first one, so, I'm sure, you will learn a lot from other members here, welcome with us, Marija !

Hello Marija, welcome to Treklens. This is a very beautiful photo. Very nice castles. Very well done.

Hi Marija!
Fantastic picture!! The form of the mountain and the inclination of the castle with light from behind give to the picture a very intense force. The sky was fantastic for the occasion. Great!

I like the photography very much. I think the composition is just right. I would try to straighten the picture though, it appear to be leaning a little to the right. But this can be easily fixed. Good job.

Back to your very first post in TL :) great mood with great sky along with it... i like the not centered compo.

I also like your "grainy" conversion to B&W


Wonderful photo Marija...it looks from a fairy tale.


I agree with Jos it is a just a fairy tale...

Johannes ;)
