Circular. Sights.


The other dayI jumped on my motorcycle in order to blow of some steem.
I looked quite like a weird being alone to visit this old Dutch castle. The structure was historically served the purpose of defending us from the French and Germans trying to push us of the already so tiny piece of land we had. (Talking 1200 after Christ and after)

The Castle also had a garden, and using my old Canon FD 50mm wide open at 1.4, and shifting the focus to about 1 meter, I could achieve the above "abstract" architectural picture. Tell me, what do you think about these abstract art pieces? I included an even more impressionistic edit of another picture I shot that day in black and white. I personally could hang that one on my wall, how about you?

As you are used from me I also included a .GIF which shows how I edited the first picture.

Lovely shot and processing, @thi-js - I actually had NO idea what I was looking at for a minute there! And the castle is just amazing. it looks to be in fantastic condition, too. Is that a maze in the foreground? I love the way the (beech?) hedges are colour co-ordinated with the brickwork. Well worth the risk of looking like a lone weirdo ;o) Thanks for sharing and good luck in the contest!

Nice photos. Very creative circular shot and I enjoy the view of the castle a little further away with a clear picture of the details.
