Technical aspects: It takes a beer or two to find a nice view on the main tower while you can still see the old ruins. I finally found a spot where you still can see the fine architecture of the old church and in the background the maintower part of an used area.

Postprocessing: PhotoShop, rotated until strait, finaly some L, CB and a bit USM.

Conditions: cloudy day, lightspot on the tower

My Goal: The place has its own brewery, they do have a very nice beer there. Whoefff...
Catch a steady and nice view on old and new.
Cheers!
