Photographer's Note

This classic Scotish castle turns out to be a modern reconstruction of the original 13th century castle and a total tourist trap.
I wanted to shoot this picture postcard castle from the less usual south side to place it in it's context as guardian of the intersection of 3 lochs but especially to emphasise it's diminutive size within the landscape(and to keep away from the 30 or so other snappers shooting the north side).
Tech: spot reading off of the castle and used a 1.5stop soft grad to pull in the sky plus a 1 stop hard grad upside down for the water.
In PS I pulled the curve to get all of the detail out of the sky.
