Photographer's Note

Since I have been taught some techniques on how to convert to B&W (sepia in this case), I keep experimenting and trying again and again. But to be able to progress and need to show what I have done so far and get exposed to your critiques. This is one of my recent essays and I hope it is not very bad. By the way, I am posting it because I like it. Thanks for your critiques and suggestions. In WS is the colour version.

Sortelha is a medieval village and one of the oldest in Portugal. The construction of the fortified walls is ascribed to D. Sancho I, King of Portugal between 1185 and 1211. After that, D. Sancho II ordered the construction of the castle and chartered Sortelha in 1228. Over the centuries, the defensive structure of the village was repaired by other Portuguese Kings such as D.Diniz, D. Fernando and D. Manuel I, who erected the “Pelourinho” in 1510. The castle was again repaired in 1640 when the Restoration War and gained a status of National Monument in 1910.
