Old Castle by postapocalypsia Old Castle by postapocalypsia
This is a castle I visited on the Austrian - Czech border. I have done some colour grading and digital fiddling to enhance the composition, but it's pretty close to reality.

I tweaked the saturation a little and dropped a faint parchment effect over the top.
Glad you like it :)

Like your gallery, but it had suffered up to this point by a lack of castles.

Don't you just love the ancient ruins of the old world? When I visited Germany & Austria, the age of the place simply oozed out of the rocks, bricks, and mortar. Great photograph!

Wow! We do not have anything like that here!
Well...we have some Native American mounds and cave dwellings...but nothing like this.
Nice reference for another painting? :)

Yes, there may be some painting idea to hatch from this - it is just not quite formed yet.
Thanks for the feedback :)

No, I know nothing about the castle except that I walked through the area and stopped to look. I think it is normally open for visitors but was shut on the day I was there. It sure made for a good subject to photograph though!

Burg Hardegg! awesome edit - like straight out of a fairytale (with a dark side)! :clap:

I knew nothing of Hardegg until I walked into it. The castle was a great surprise! The whole area looked like fairytale material to me, coming from the other side of the world.
Thanks :)

Ah, nice.. Hardegg castle, part of Austria's smallest city. I've been there years ago. It's beautiful. Your photo captures the atmosphere of this place very well. Great work.

I visited Hardegg as part of a walking trip through the forests from the Czech side. It was beautiful even on a cold overcast day - very moody. We have no architecture or scenery like this at home, so I soaked it up with great enthusiasm!
Thanks for the comments :)
