    Thank you all for votes and comments !
This image was shot with the Pana 7-14mm f4 lens which I love.
It's true that it looks better in B&W that in colors...
Many thanks for the tips to enhance the image, I'll try to correct the vertical orientation.

    Great subject but almost too textured. The fabulous but busy sky plus the busy water and stonework are a bit distracting

    I have seen this photo taken in colour - I'm amazed at how much more powerful it is in B&W. The turbulent sky really adds to the beauty of the castle and the B&W emphasizes the architecture.

    Interesting view. Good BW tones. In my favs.

    Well exposed and this image has all of the wonderful grey tones. IMHO I would have used the transform - skew to align the buildings in a more vertical orientation. The left-leaning portion of the castle on the right side of the image is distracting.

    At first I thought that it would have been better to use a longer lens or to correct the verticality of the walls. Then I saw the imposing chateau puffing out its chest - look at me! Gorgeous sky, hard stone building and silky water. Bravo.

    Neat shot of a great chateau! A few suggestions:
- The detail in the clouds is dramatic, but here it competes with the chateau. You could use a mask and negative Clarity to soften them. Maybe be lighten the sky a little, too, while you're at it.
- Crop off the bottom at the end of the diagonal pier.
- Usually I'd use Perspective Correction to straighten out the building distortion, but here I might even increase it, enhancing the sense of everything radiating from the central tower.
