The Castle


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 1 sec, f/5, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

So I seem to be experiencing some fairly nasty technical problems. All of the pictures I've uploaded to my john.stuwee.org site over the last couple of months have simply disappeared. It happened on Friday, but I just thought that there was something wrong with the hosting as they appeared to come and go at random intervals. But they seem to be completely gone. Not even Stu knows what's wrong with it!

Anyway, my johnwaller.co.uk is still working fine, so I'm just using shots from there for the time being. I had a wander around town today - the weather was nice and I was wanting to get some infra red shots done for a change. I must have been out for a good few hours, but only really stopped to take pictures of 3 different scenes! Not a very productive day to say the least.

This one was taken at the start of my wander - the clouds were pretty strange and so I rushed to find something decent in the foreground. In the end I settled for the castle.

I know it was a great morning. I ended up wandering around the tourist sights myself. Unfortuently the battery in my camera died (must have been left on in my bag or something) so only managed to take photos on my camera phone.

Took a stroll down High Street down to Holyrood, so got some nice shots of the Scottish Parliament and the sun rising over Arthur's Seat. Too bad they are all really low quality...

hey john,

i''ve been visiting your blog daily and this is definitely one of my favourites. Pity some details are lost (seems to be slightly over exposed) on the castle but it is such a breathtaking shot!!!

dougie: Thanks - my friend calls the IR filter the insta-snow effect :)

alex: Hey, gimme the link to your shots if you manage to put them up. What time were you down there at if the sun was rising? Gotta get up early one day and get some shots meself.

Is your gallery buggered just now as well? Are you able to upload new shots at the moment?

jcyrhs: Hey, thanks a lot. What parts of the image do you think are over exposed? The only parts that photoshop are showing as blown are the windows on the building on the right hand side. I made sure not to lose the detail on the grass, but you've got me worried now that it's too bright :)

Cheers anyway!

Yup the right side of the castle is the distracting part and the overall photo feels rather bright (maybe the clouds are disturbing) but it's OONLY SLIGHTLY.

don't worry too much about it. It's too great a photo

jcyrhs: That's cool, thanks for the input. Yeah, the sky is quite bright there, but definitely not blown :) Could easily tone it down in PP a bit. Cheers.

Jem: Yeah, was lucky to get such a sweet sky. Thanks!
