I am in awe

of those dark and thunderous skies above.

Blood red, cold steely black, clouds which hold the the promise of storms that mere man cannot control and a castle whose stones have been there 600 plus years.

In New Zealand, such places can only be imagined and one day, I should so love to experience 'feeling' those environments.

Thank you palms1

I elarnt that a limit of 100k really means a limit of *under* 100k. I was so proud of the perfect 100 until it got rejected far into cyberspace!

*grins*

Glow in the dark castle and one to fool the enemies


Leanan'si you get used to the limits but doing it this way the posts are always there so you can look back and not find red crosses or image missing etc etc as you do on other forums

Second photo,

I was distracted by a bright white area within the arches and started to clone it out when I thought about it and realised that it looked like an area which had disintegrated and the daylight was coming through. I changed tack and used an omni light (about twenty zillion variations) to try and make light the feature of the photo.

I've been exploring Virtual Photographer as extra filters and used 'radiant' to finish.

I'd like to say a big thank you to those who give us these photos to play with, who contribute and who comment. It's giving me experience and a widening of horizons which I never expected to enjoy when I came here.

My own stash of personal photos are currently locked away on a hard drive which refuses to boot up .. but I will keep watch for some in future photographs I take.

Thank you all again,
leanan`si

Posted some images, but couldn't come up with a "ditty" for this one. And you'll have to enlighten me re. "Men of Harlech."

Steve i like the way the bricks look metallic, is it the same technique on all three ? weird if it is because i think it looks billiant on the third one ( not meaning it dosent on the other two )

Just got your next message, The song is almost a anthem for the welsh people it is quite a stirring battle song ( needs to be heard by a welsh choir sends chills up your spine ) but what i didnt know until just is that it appears in the film zulu

for any one interested here is a web page about the song, film and connection between the two
http://www.data-wales.co.uk/harlech.htm

And yes you would know the tune which if it is getting to you, there is a midi file here

hope i havent bored you all
