Picture of Windsor Castle on a pleasant day. this is the first time i actually employed black and white to an image (a dodgy sepia once doesn't count). not entirely sure if this says "deep" depth of field, only that i don't think it's shallow. so ergo, etc. used curves, crop, gradient map (actually a satisfying way to B&W), cloned out a couple of heads in the vicinity of the bushes at the back, a bit of distort (bent tower for some reason) and that's about it.

Wow- I wish I had a castle by my house :( *tear* The texture on those bricks are amazing! and that sky, good lord that's cool. I hope you win buddy 'cause then you can take me for a ride in your moat and I can have fun in the jousting area. 10 10 10

Good work on the DOF. B&W use is good here. Some of the darker portions seem to be a bit too dark.

Nice example of DoF. Sky is interesting and much better than a bald white one. Composition is effective although it does seem like the near wall is leaning our way. Black and white was a good choice.
