Just uploading this for the atmosphere, not for the quality of the photo.

Post-processing: I upped the contrast and lowered the saturation. The blueish colours come from the whitebalance.

Location: a town (I hate myself for not being able to recall which one it was, we just visited so many in a row) next to the Moselle, Germany.




My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules [link]

Wow, this is a really nice capture, and the whole aura it gives is sort of mysterious and spooky like something you'd find in a storybook or movie. True, the quality isn't exactly top-notch, but altogether the shot is really beautiful in its own way :)

It's Burg Metternich, in Beilstein,Germany in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. It's not too far away from Luxembourg (I think like an hour or two, can't remember.)

And from the Queendoms hallowed halls, so she spreads joy and wonder to all. Those who covet, are jealous and small . Yet with pride and beauty, she stands tall. Sharing peace and serenity,for the good of all. Those crass and grasping, stand in thrall. For they get it not, not at all.
