Highlander by lucias-tears Highlander by lucias-tears
bending the compositional rules in photography ;)
i did wonder if the central positioning could ever work, but after submitting it to a few other galleries like my flickr i was encourage to submit it here to cos i recieved positive feedback :)
one kind gentleman told me that the unusual composition 'makes it look more like a highland castle and less like a tourist trap' which i think quite a compliment considering how photographed this castle is!

hope many of you will too enjoy this more unconventional view of the famous castle :)

camera: Canon 350d
lens: 18-55mm
location: Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland
PS work: stitch and contrast

I didn't really want to visably mark this one, so I have halfed it's size to prevent it being abused.

This is a fantastic photograph considering this place has a main road and carpark etc right in front of it. Great job :D

This is beautiful beyond words.It looks like it's been taken from a tale.Doesn't look like a tourist trap at all honestly,it looks like a rather isolated area.I love the castle's rusty colours compared to the colours of the lake and background,they complete each other perfectly :)
Anyway,you did very very well and laws/rules are meant to be broken anyway,no?:P
Awesome shot, the bridge, the castle, the water, all come together to make the shot work.
