...Loads of castles where I live.
Snapped these ones of Moyry Castle near the North/South Irish border.
Opinions/suggestions (I don't have Photoshop :()?
EDIT: I just changed the images to the ones Photoshoped by Cliff...
It looks like a little square-shaped wimble person with arms by its sides.
ha, ha, the round corners are unusual for a castle of that era apparently.
Makes it very photogenic I think...
Are there any Photoshop pro's out there that want to play with the original files. I'd like to see the before/afters as I'm a novice.

The top one looks OK to me, although the blue sky could be bluer - you might want to try a PL filter next time. Failing that a little curving and sharpening might help which you can do in Capture NX - 60 day trial here (http://nikonimglib.com/cnx2/index_en_nsa.html#os-windows)
Feel free to PM me a link to the original RAW file if you have it.
I only have them as jpegs'...told you I was a novice.:)
I must admit I am a wee bit of a castle annorak and want to get a collection of photos together to get framed.
