This is a view of Piazza San Carlo in Torino. This has been shot with my iPhone 3gs. The app used to shot the image was HDR Pro, cropping and adjustments were done using Snapseed, further editing was done using Dynamic Light and Pic Grunger.

Here are more fairy tale castles to charge your imagination. These, again, I took from photographs and enhanced the images using Adobe Photoshop filters. I still find it amazing how this fabulous tool from Photoshop can change  a photograph, one by taking two colors from the original image and using them to enrich the background and foreground and/or then adding techniques that give the effects of a work of art.

I found inspiration for the  castles shown below, from two fellow bloggers: Four Blue Hill’ post, “Amazing Castles from Around the World” http://fourbluehills.com/2012/01/20/amazing-castles-from-around-the-world/ and from What the Dutch ‘s post, “De Haar Castle” http://whatthedutch.wordpress.com/2011/09/29/de-haar-castle/. The original photograph used in the last image of my post here, I believe the blogger (What the Dutch) shot themselves. It is so beautiful that just looking at the original photo makes me want to get on a jet and fly to Holland to see De Haar Castle, stone and mortar with my own eyes and smell the roses that grow around it. Well done!
