This is superb. The exposure is so well controlled and the colour muted and natural. Great composition and I love the way the flowers in the close foreground are equally in focus as is the castle in the middle distance.
Just two small queries
- Is there a lean to the left or is that an illusion?
- Have you darkened the sky in post processing? The top half of the castle seems darker than the lower half...

Hi Mike.

Thanks for your comments.

I think the lean is an illusion.
The darkening of the top of the castle is because my ND filter was too low in the frame.
I will edit and re post.
