On reaching the top of Church Hollow, the road leading up to Godshill church to the left of the Bat's Wing Tearooms shown in my previous upload, you are met with this, Hill Cottage, which looks out across to the church. I could live in a cottage that! V2 is taken from the other side of the road on the path leading up to the church.

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 4 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

What a picture postcard of a cottage, Trev, beautifully captured and processed, as always. Carol

Picture postcard it is indeed and the epitome of the English rural scene, as I understand it: love this sort of architecture and roofing.

It's a gorgeous cottage, and the way you've photographed it and processed the images really adds to the effectiveness. Both of these versions I could see as jigsaw puzzles to be honest (and that's not meant in a negative way!). I could spend many happy hours trying to piece this wonderful scene back together in several thousand pieces Grin They really remind me of Thomas Kinkaid's paintings.

On balance, I prefer V2 personally, although they're both beautiful.

both fine and well processed Trev you have the levels spot on again V2 is my fav the angle of capture wins for me and the inclusion of the people gives scale to the cottage very nice indeed

V2 for me Trev, it minimises the impact of that horrible, out of character concrete post and chain fence.

Such iconic English architecture. I love those incredibly complex thatched roofs. It does remind me of Kincaid also. First class image.

Two very beautifully processed images. Love the look of these thatched roof cottages. Makes me smile when I see the satellite dish on the wall. Shows it is now, not back years when these were originally built.

I always think these satellite dishes look a bit out of place on buildings like this Trev !!
Good shots.

Classic thatched cottage style but grander than most. Two exceptionally good views; I find V1 the more imposing.
The satellite dish is of course not a tv receiver: it is a teleport transceiver, ready for Scottie to beam it up into the unforeseeable future Smile

So beautifully taken Trev, if this were mine I might crop the road from V1 which stops the image being cut almost into 2 it it's a great shot anyway and if you like it that's what counts
