I admit, nothing particular spooky about the picture... One can easily change a "Morning in Wonderland" type of image to a Hallowin decoration using digital editing... The temptation is always there. That being said, Middle Age castles were not built to look beautifully. To me they generally look intimidating...
... To partially redeem myself I must say I did not mean to "spookify" the image in the first place. It happened gradually.

Just listened to the midi. That's a beautiful melody! You folks in the British Isles have a way with beautiful and poignant melodies. "Danny Boy" never ceases to stir great emotions when I hear it. Have you heard it by the American John Gary? And the Irish Tenors and their rendition of "Ireland" will reduce one to tears.

As for the images...same technique used on all. Buzz & Lucis filters with
"hunt & peck" tweaking. And auto saturation used more than once on some.

Thanks for the comments and the info on the song.

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

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