Photo: Do This With Your Moat!
A nice back (or is it front?) garden.

This is from April 2006, but newly processed.

The castle side of the disused moat around Windsor Castle is now a beautiful garden filled with lush greenery and several little waterfalls.  A few moments before this it had been sprinkling rain, but the sun appeared briefly to create sparkles on the plants and rocks.

I bet it's hard to heat the place up in the winter!

Windsor Castle - April 2006. The Royal Family does not actually reside in this part of the castle. That's up the slope somewhat.

The tone processing consisted of basic adjustments in Lightroom 4 followed by application of custom b/w settings in DxO FilmPack 3, which included a deep orange filter to darken the sky to bring out the moon and castle tower itself, as well as a "large format" grain setting. I also did a bit of cloning and content-aware fill to get rid of some antennas, cables and other distractions.

Who's buried there?

In April 2006 I visited Windsor Castle. In the lower ward sits . . . or rather, stands St. George's Chapel. The original chapel was constructed in 1348, and has been plundered, repaired, expanded and remodeled a number of times. In various corners throughout the building are buried several historical royal personages, most notably from the last century, King George VI, Princess Margaret and The Queen Mother.

This photo was taken with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 camera before I knew any better about RAW vs. JPEG photos. My budget minded decision was to take a 1 GB SD card and stick with JPEG. There is a bit of Topaz, some NIK HDR Efex Pro 2, and . . . some other stuff.
