Great use of the added figure to focus the eye, though even without it I feel there is enough detail in the shadow, light and texture of the stonework, to draw us to that part of the image SmileSmile

A well balanced image with lovely warm light on the stonework, Neil. The figure worries me a little in that her size looks a bit out of proportion with her position on the path and the shadow on her is opposite to that on the walls.

A well worked image, however as Dave so kindly pointed out the imposed figure seems to by out of sorts.

Dave thanks ,i messed with that light so much it was ridiculous , the shrub at the front has light coming bottom left to upper right but the big arches give it the other way,re the perspective i dont know,but thanks for looking in detail and the honest opinion its what i need, i will try again and see how it works.SmileSmile

I don't recall ever seeing McCaig's Folly feature in any images on site here before, Neil, so that makes this one quite original from that viewpoint alone: nice bit of extra manipulation to make it that bit even more different.

Though I've been in Oban quite a few times, I never made it up to McCaig's Folly Neil, so thanks for showing me what's up there, certainly well worth a visit judging by your fine shot, of course your manipulation is a fine bit of icing on the cake, well done and good luck in getting the CPAGB qualification (whatever that is Wink)

You are too busy, Neil. She is wondering where you are, and what happened to the take-away you said you would buy on the way home.Grin
Quality work as usual.

Real good work Neil .

I dont think the multi-directional spoils it at all , adds the surreal.

Perhaps crop to lose that sky in the far right arch might balance it up a bit ?

Now , teach those mentors a thing or two Wink
