30th place (joint)
Castle photographed using a tripod, shot at various exposures, and combined into HDR. (Shown are 2 versions, there were several others.) Returned a few days later, and photographed Princess where we had our picnic. Took crown from another photo, and grass from a different one (not shown). Merged it all together in Photoshop Express. My Princess loves this memory of a wonderful day!
