Evening Minuetto by barns Evening Minuetto by barns
... in the castle by the sea.
A jewel more radiant than the moon,
lowered her mask to me.

:blackrose:

I had this picture in my head the first time I saw the fantastic stock photo from devilicious So my car & me went in search for a fitting castle. :) It was a lot of fun working on this picture, love to try out something :new: ;)

:love: barns

devil-stock
the original shot can be found here [link]

text from Cradle of Filth's 'A Gothic Romance'
Location: Burg St. Petersberg in Silz/Tirol

Judging my the stock photo from the same place, there could've been some potentially great colour in there, though I must say the image works great as a greyscale image :D

brilliant reworking of the original image. I love the concept, and the monochromatic blue gives it that cold sombre feel to it.

Very nice :)
