Sir Walter Scott's Tower

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 1 February 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

I had a play with this one from our trip to Edinburgh in June. HDR processed with Photomatixs

Canon EOS 500D 1/99 second F/6.4 ISO 200 18 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
