|Urquhart Castle dominates a rocky a rocky promontory jutting out into the deepest waters of Loch Ness. I was up visiting my son who at this time lived in Inverness and on the way home popped in to this beautiful castle. It is one many sites looked after by Historic Scotland and being a member means no cost, a perfect price for a canny scot.|
Thanks for the critiques most appreciated, didn't notice the water was slanting down.

The slant was noticable before, this is heaps better. I visited this outcrop a few years ago and fell in love with the area, we drove all around the Loch, takes a while i know. You show the contours of the land next to the water so well, a Scottih sky brewing in the background giving depth and appeal. Good rustic, tones and pleasing frame, tfs
Hi Jon. Nice photo taken on a very dull day. The composition using the portrait format is ideal, and the use of thirds is good even with the castle in the centre of the pic. The sky looks grim!!!
Hi Jon. This is a fine shot. Scotland is one of my favorite places having lived there for 5 years many years ago (as a child) I think the overcast skies give the land character and I dont mind providing the rain keeps off :-)Good pov and nice composition.

You composed this nicely. The zig-zag lead-in from the stairs and stone wall is very nice and the clouds create a nice, moody scene suitable for an old castle.
A well taken shot of the country side with a historical ruins located at far make a wonderful site to enjoy, Jon!
Good details and well caught contrasts against a cloudy sky,
The sharpness and DOF are excellent, and light is very well handled.
Thanks and regards,
A lovely composition well captured. Good natural colour and sharp detail in the stone wall. Interesting dramatic sky and I like the view across the water. Typically scottish colours I would say and a nice landscape shown to best effect with the portrait format and plain white border.
