The Bran Castle - Mono - Color - Sepia

in photography •  23 days ago

Today my subject is the Bran castle, situated in Bran, Romania, which is now a museum where you can see Queen Marie's amazing furniture collection. If you'd like to see the interior of the castle, please read my previous blog -> Bran Castle or Dracula's Castle .


It's build on a mountain top, if you have a closer look you can see the rocks under the castle. This was a strategic decision, the only way you can go up is by foot and this way the whole valley was visible from up there.


Visiting the castle is like a trip back in time, everything is restored and you can see how these royals were living.


The sepia version is more appropriate here I think.

Feel free to let me know in a comment which one is your favorite.

Thank you!

I agree that the sepia fits it well, adding to the general thought that it is an old (which it is) spooky (which it is! ) Castle. I think the tone glorifies its age and the textures of the materials used to build it.

While, I am not a huge sepia fan, although, that is mostly because I do not use it much, I appreciate a well-done shot. When I say I am not a fan, I really mean that I don't always know which kind of shot will work. But, I am getting better. :)

Nice image of that famous place!



I agree with you on that! I have a postcard with the royal family and it's sepia if I'm not mistaken. Wanted to post it but could not find it.
Sepia always works when it's about something old and also works on buildings. You can't go wrong with a sepia or monochrome building. You'll learn, don't worry and besides, there's no right or wrong as we are not the same, each of us has different preferences. 🙂
Thank you for your support and have a nice day 😊
