I can't believe it Isn't Castlevania

Thought Id give this a try after browsing through some photos on Deviant Art.

Ever seen a photo of a castle or church or something, and think, DAAAAYUM, THAT IS SOME CASTLEVANIA LOOKIN' SHIT. WHERES DRACULA HIDIN' AT.? Well most of us probably haven't in person.

But post those kinds of photos here.

At the same time, we get to see awesome photos and shit.

NOTE: It doesnt exactly HAVE to be a castle or cathedral, it can be general environments and photos that remind you of Castlevania and the land  and settings around it.

Ill start off be posting some HDR photos
(click to show/hide)

Lets see if this idea is successful, or if it crumbles like the demon estate itself.

HAVE AT YOU!

Those are some excellent locales FLAME, and will become good desktop & cellphone backgrounds thanks! I can imagine Gabriel Belmont scaling the walls in some of those, with his Combat Cross Chain Whip, of course.

Here are some cool ones

The first image looks like Ruvas forest and the second one like the Mountain fortress.the others don't look like past esceneries but they NEED to be, they are beautiful (especially those gardens :o)
Take note (Screencap?) Mercury!

My buddy and right hand man, Diplo, used to send me loads of pictures of Cathedrals and stuff that looked like they would fit right inside Castlevania, but... I lost all of those in a hard drive crash : [

Heh, I can remember his words.  "I'm not much into religion, but some pretty amazing things have been done in the name of it."

Maybe he still has some of them or knows where to find them.  I'll have to check.

look up the Deviant Art group "HDR Fans".

You will find much of that.

I fully endorse this thread. I don't particularly have anything to contribute though, but if I happen upon something I will.

That cathedral in the waterfall would work DAMN awesome as a locale for a 3D Vania.
