    This is the Wasserschloss Westerburg near Huy in Germany. Now lovingly renovated and converted into a lovely hotel. The inner courtyard by day:

    and at dusk:

    Thanks Hyubie! If you pixel peek, there's a fair bit of noise (ISO 1600), but for 1/6s handheld, it captures the atmosphere.

    Thank you all for your comments. I was a little apprehensive about posting, since I'm a rank amateur with just 4 years experience, but I hoped the subject matter would prove interesting. Thanks again.
