Thanks for your interest on my picture.
I read your workshop with great interest. I might use your technique to improve the quality of my pictures (although not to such extent).
Can you describe the operations you used to acheive this effect ?

Thanks in advance.

Basically, all landsaping pic almost facing same problem: we depend totally on naturall light (the sun), weather, and the angle (point we stand). Not all the time we have enough luck to get ideal moment.
Then we need to made a little retouching on the pics.
Like i said, your pic are perfect: the castle were great, the area surrounded also great, but too bad the naturall light were not so good.

Open your Photoshop (PS) and placing this pic on it.
- Use BRUSH TOOL, find sample colour of blue for filled the white sky cast. U can made many adjusment the OPACITY on top of the window (lighter or deep blue as u wish).
- Finish with that. Now click BURN TOOL, set the opacity many times as u willing. I had burn the blue sky on BG to get more darker tonal. And also burn the trees under the castle.
- U can also use DODGE tool to give a brighter area. I added more bright tone on castle wall and some of the trees leaves.

Now, everyone are rolled their eyes directly to the castle, because the only bright area only the building, nothing else.

Hope u like my explanation
cheers have a nice weekend.
