A well composed shot of the Castle, a nice blue sky and nice reflections in the river, well done Helen.

Nicely composed image Helen and as George says the reflections in the river work well, only one small point I would be tempted to lighten the shadows a tad

Sorry late with comment Helen, have looked at it a couple of times and agree with above comments.
Not intending to be negative but trying to be constructive, you can usually get better definition from a lens if you use it around it's mid f number i.e. f8 to f11 here. You have a fairly slow shutter speed here so dropping to f8 would have increased that, therefore less chance of camera shake, important as the subject is quite a distance away.
As Steve has said perhaps the shadows could be lifted a bit, and for me just a tad less blue, nice shot though.

Sorry for my late response Steve & Jeffrey. Thank you for your comments. I have taken note of what you said and I have re done it so hopefully shall re edit it into the gallery in a few days when I get a bit more time.
