Well made BW-conversion. Brave contrast suits the castle fine. The flag on the right gives the scene the needed balance.

Thanks for your kind comments, much appreciated!
The harsch light with strong contrast made a B&W conversion the best choice, I think.

It is very dramatic and well balanced. I agree with your choice of B&W for this.

"There can be only one"... well there's me and some American born, Swiss educated, Frenchman who lays a misguided claim also.

Aye great shot, it's just down the road from me... well 54 miles actually and with our roads here, that's one hour fifteen minutes away.

Thanks for your comment! Yes, the DxO Preset and there is a "moderate" orange filter considered.
