There were no crops in the field when I visited Happisburgh lighthouse just muddy fields, so I went for a black and white approach.

This one breaks lots of the rules of composition really, with nothing of interest in the centre and the leading lines taking you away from the main focal point.

I agree totally with your own comments up top, Lee: the bright coloured heather contrasts well against the threatening greys of the clouds.

Heather! you had me worried for a minuteTongue.

I disagree with your description. The grainy mono has made a lovely moody sky which IS the subject, nicely framed between the verticals of the telegraph poles and lighthouse.

What are these rules there are none ,it's a great shot shows the wide open space we all like ,a great sky lots of interest in the empty field lines from the ploughing thoughts of what's to come ,good exsposure and sharpness ,well done keep thinking out of the box

Thanks all, glad you like! Just meant I'd not used the rule of thirds or anything, but sometimes it's best to just do what looks right!
