Goodrich Castle: Capturing Ruins

A recent trip to Goodrich Castle led me to experiment with different textures and lighting effects from both in and outside. Interesting angles revealed parts of the castle that had been somewhat forgotten, adding to the idea of a historic ruin, abandoned hundreds of years ago.

When at home, editing these photos, I found that cranking up the contrast and adding a pinch of warmth led to a vintage look whilst also pulling out the smaller details and textures. To add an even more vintage twist on the photo, you may decide to resort to the cheesy, but effective, vignette. Finally, by brushing away a small amount of saturation, the image would look less like present day and create some surrealism.
