    Alnwick Castle aka Hogwarts

    One of a series of Northumberland Castles I recently completed. Parts of the castle featured as Hogwarts in the first two of the Harry Potter series of movies.

    Lovely image Keith. I like everything about it - the composition and the aspect ratio, the colours, the shadows, the reflections in the water, and the sky.

    Cheers Dave

    Excellent Keith! The reflection really 'makes it'.

    Really like the way you have used the trees to' frame' the castle and its brilliant reflection, as well as having the tree on the LHS 'mask' the buildings behind and stop them being 'attention deflectors.' Nice work.

    I agree that is very well done. Nothing needed in my humble opinion!

    I'd put a wrapper on it Keith, and post to the Mini's so that others can chime in, with votes!

    Have a guess :)

    Re: Alnwick Castle aka Hogwarts

    You've achieved the impossible ...

    Daughter #1 "Awesome"

    Daughter #2 "That's so cool"

    Best I ever get is "that's nice dad" (I think it was the Happy Potter reference that did it!).

    It is an amazing image. It has a mystical feel about it and then the reflection, the clarity, the composition...really just outstanding.

    Well... Colin... capture some 'Harry Potter' for your beautiful girls! But, I bet when they say, 'That's nice, Dad' they really mean that it is 'awesome' and 'so cool' ... but you know teenagers, they have an image to keep up.

    Keith, if your family isn't looking at your images, they are missing out...big time.
