Any one remember this? Yes its the sad old ruins of Ballyadams Castle in County Laois, which I was lucky enough to explore with the land owners permission earlier this year. Dating back to the 15th century, much of it is in quite good condition for its age, unlike the manor house which was built on in later years. As it stands this is one of my favourite Castle ruins and with my ever increasing habit of messing with layers I decided to see what I can do. I think that this is the first B&W image that I have used for a re-work so I am undecided between it and the re-work??? Here is the original image in black & White, what do you think???
So again I started messing around with some layers and ended up with this as my final image. Hope you all like it 🙂 As always any thoughts or comments you may have would be greatly appreciated.
