Eilean Donan castle is one of the most famous in Scotland. When we arrived the rain stopped for while. Unfortunately the light was against me.

O castelo de Eilean Donan é um dos mais conhecidos da Escócia. Quando chegamos a chuva parou de cair por alguns minutos. Infelizmente a luz estava contra a câmera.

Hello Jorge

A magnificent view here with the castle placed perfectly in the POV. The drama in the clouds help with the overall ambiance of the presentation. nice work.

Hola Jorge
Belle version pano, une vue superbe du château et les reflets, un paysage de montagnes, un ciel dramatique bien capturer, belle composition

Hi Jorge,
Good presentation with a nice panoramic format, well composed you view with the castle in a focal point of your photo, nice also these water reflections, tfs.

ciao Jorge,
it's unusual seeing a view of this castle made by a grandandular objective. Very good view, but the horizon isn't straight,
ciao, Giacomo

Hello Jorge, Finally the most beautiful, anyway the most photographed castle in Scotland, Eilean Donan. The light was not so bad and at least there was water for some reflections. When I was there it was low tide. marvelous wide panorama. Magnificeent presentation.

Have a nice day

Witaj Jorge!
Excellent panorama, interesting castle.
Good colors and light.
Photo has atmosphere.
I like it.
Well done.
Warm regards.

Hello Jorge,
It seems nothing was ever perfect in Scotland...;-)In spite of the not ideal light you managed a good photo. It's a great view of the castle by the lake. You placed it slightly towards the side where it is nicely connected with the mainland by the elegant bridge. It is perfectly reflected in the water. The hills on each side give the photo a good balance. The panoramic shape suits this view very well.
Kind regards,

  • Great

Hello Jorge

It looks like castles are all the rage on TE today. I like the wide angled panoramic view and the fg reflections in the water. Looks like the tide was on your side. Tfs!

Hello Jorge,

The castle and bridge give a nice addition to the picture.
Pleasant panorama image.
Composition and presentation are superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,

Hi Jorge,
this is a place which I would like to visit someday in Scotland. Very charming castle and having a great setting.
The light was quite challenging indeed but you did a great job under the circumstances, although I would probably cut away the left part. The fragment with castle itself has a much better sky so if you would discard the left side the quality would improve.
Spectacular sight, very encouraging to visit,

Hi Jorge
Slight overcast and atmospheric, just goes to show that you don't need light to capture the drama of this archetypal Scottish landscape. Well done.
Best regards

Ciao Jorge, great view of fantastic castle, fascinating reflections, romantic atmosphere, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Helo Jorge,
Nice this panaromic view from Scotland.
Good sharpness and ligth management.
TFS and best regards

Hello Jorge,
A great panorama photo of the famous castle and the beautiful landscape surrounding it. You were lucky that the rain had stopped and some blue sky had appeared. You handled the light skilfully.

Hello Jorge,
The view is wonderful but the light is such that it needs some postprocessing to bring the colors out. I tried with limited success and uploaded the result to the WS.
