this is a secret way in the Bran Castle (aka "Dracula's";)

I feel this one very intime, I don't know why, but it remainds me of a heart (I don't know the medical word for the 4 "rooms" of the heart, but it's what I thinking of), for that reason I tryed to do some PP: incresing the contrast and crop: for making it more "alive":)

... so, can you hear my secret?:)

Hello Anca,

Excellent PP, very luminous for a photo on the Dracula's castle.


Fantastic combination of colours.
Red and yellow...
The white piece on the left wall, you could clone it yellow to.
Your secret ? Felt your heart in your neck ?
A bit of fear ? Groetjes, Giuseppe.

I must say that I don't see (or hear) a heart - I see a gaping mouth with four teeth at the top and not one of them belong to Dracula.
A weird picture ... almost scary but not quite.
This also qualifies for the Theme - Sunset with no sunset.
The Manila Jury sees this as ... creative to just short of insanity (= almost genius level but don't tell anyone I said that!) 8.5/10 for no fangs!

intersting work on colors Anca and a good idea for this place... Well done

Hi Anca,
This is a very beautiful composition, the PP work is really great and these colors really emphasize the mood. Great shot.

looks very surreal, M, (*_*)

it's pulsatory, indeed.

nice work, congrats!

Hello Anca,

This is a very moody and eerie image. The colors are fantastic and the high contrast works well to bring out those incredible wall textures. Very well seen and presented Anca! Tha thump. tha thump. tha thump.

Peace and Love to you always!

Hello Anca,

I see lot of TE members here too, I just joined yesterday.

This is excellently captured, The firing colors are excellent. Like old vammpire picture. Scary...


This is an awesome creation, Anca!
I like the way you push contrast to achieve an effect... Composition wise the perspective is still there and guiding us into... what? Scary, I would not go in there alone, hehehe... Well done!
Pablo -

Its the colour and spooky mood I like in this picture, Anca. Nice job and TFS.

Best regards,


Dracula castle?! wow! thank you for sharing!! I love your PP work here, it certainly creates the dark mood which was surely already there in the original as well, congrats!

Hearing and smelling too! It's look to be a mouth of the past! She look very old and proud of the legend. WHo will dare to sleep here tongight... Just one night... Haaa.. come on... It's just a legend... You won't stay just one night? Chicken!

Diabolique de la porte de l'enfer …
Tu n'as pas eu peur, Anca ???
Il aurait pu t'arriver malheur …
Perdue, seule, dans ce grand cœur !!!


Bouh j'ai peur!
Je ferme les yeux!
(Nan, pas une bonne idée quand on veut commenter une photo, j'ouvre un oeil alors)
Exactement le genre d'endroits où je n'irais pas toute seule, moi et mon courage légendaire dans le noir et jaune!
Bien vu Anca!

Très belle photo avec un traitement parfait, Anca, pour créer tout un atmosphère qui fait peur et qui illustre bien la légende de Dracula. Belle composition avec ce tunnel qui va vers l'inconnu. Mon seul petit bémol est la tâche blanche en haut vers la gauche - je l'aurais possiblement recouverte de jaune & rouge après le traitement que tu lui as donné. Mais autrement un photo qui a beaucoup d'impact. Bravo!

wow! super ideea. ventricol sau/si atrium? nu mai stiu care cum. foarte buna ideea cu pp-ul. ai nimerit-o. ai transformat subiectul in forme abstracte. e tare. bravo!



I like this abstract very much dada!

Great textures and colours. Very striking, emotionaly stirring, makes me feel a little bit scared maybe!

Good Luck!
