Hopefully this looks a bit more realistic now. Changes are as follows: Tried to add a subtle perspective to the towers as per prismmagics advice; added shadow to castle wall behind trees; did a bit more "gardening" by cropping out bright bits of trees; added support structure to tall tower room; used filter to add more texture to castle and signpost; added the small guardtower. Feedback please!

More images and prints available in my Deviant art and Redbubble galleries.

Much better... all you need now is a knight in shining armour riding a white horse.. hehehe
I think you need to put something on the grass eg. Medieval fair or jousting ... just my opinion...

i does look better , but (a small one ) i think you could a bit of rock texture to the castle to give it a more wornout look.
Still good work.

Even though the changes may look small, I know you put a lot of work into making them. Time well spent, in my opinion. Very nice job.

You always do good work, and if you have to edit yoru work, your do even better. This is a real gem. Well, yes a Knight in shining armour would almost be nice..but not sure about it.

LOL @ Ann .....Nicely done Sam. Now what you need to do is cut a window high up in that front tower & show Rapunzel leaning out to her prince, with her long, long, hair.

Agree with all above. This rendition is much more realistic. I must ask the same question as MORWYN, let me know when I can check-in.

That looks better now . The perspective is better and the angle of the shadow is good, but it would hlep to good extend and be mearge it with a tree shadow, lightly on to the forground grass in another layer then blured to soften and then stretched and faded to the left side of the image..

Art is the perception of the creator. Meaning is the perception of the viewer. acceptance is the perception of society.

I think this looks really good, and the touches you've added have given the castle a the look of belonging in the scene. Can I be bold?? A suggestion, have you thought of adding a pathway from the foreground (post) sweeping around to the castle - say around behind the bushes in the mid-ground? Love this picture overall - well done.
