@Stu: Thanks Stu!

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

Excellent, the castle seems floating in weightlessness.
Which is a big challenge for a medieval castle !

Ian, love reflections in the water. The tones are great and the water reminds my of the water in the shot I took a few weeks back Wouldn't mind seeing the version in colour.

I love the light in this photo, the ambient light of night and the artificial lights on the castle and nearby buildings. Beautiful work, as always.

The composition of placing the center line a little high and having a long lead in foreground has a nice effect, and of course the lighting and detail are terrific. Great photo.

So considerate of them to tie up all of the vessels to a point just below your feet. They must have known that an ace photographer was coming along needing some leading lines. :-)
An absolutely wonderful composition.
