    Nice image. I'm trying to think square as well.

    Another vote for the square crop. It just needs a Rook or Raven sitting on one of the branches and it could be a shot straight from a horror film!!

    Yes, those are my thoughts. Looks like a scene from a Hitchcock film.

    Me too.

    I wondered about doing a little dodging on the roof and facing wall of the building to lighten them up a bit and reveal more detail?

    Lucky you got the shot and managed to get away before the Count released his hellhounds.

    Very nice work.

    Re: Old Tree

    Thanks for your suggestions. I also like the square version more than the other one.

    No I did not need to run for my life. It is open for visitors.
    The building in the background is the entry portal to castle Drachenburg.
    http://www.schloss-drachenburg.de/index_EN.html
    It's seated in the Middle-Rhine region called "Romantic Middle Rhine" between the cities of Mayence (Mainz) and Bonn. If you do a trip to Germany that region is really worth a visit. It is full of old historical towns and castles and famous for its wines.

    As Donald suggested here is a version with brighter shadows on the building.

    More to come as time and weather permits.
