This is the first of two and a half huts ( the third one isn't really a hut... more of a shed ) Grin

Look out Alan's found more huts WinkWinkWinkWinkTongue

Nice texture Alan and the wall drags the eye straight to the hut before letting you wander around the rest of the image.

Nice Image Alan Grin

How strange that hut looks in the middle of the wall.
The composition however is very satisfying despite wanting to get a JCB in there to move the hut!
Brilliant mono of course!

I probably would have cropped this differently, and maybe in several ways--- The processing is magnificent!

I find the cropping or the way it is square framed superb, textured effect works wonderfully well with this. I love it.

Fantastic but...difficult. Love the fence and how it leads the eye in. My main concern is the top of the image but I don't see what you could have done different. I want the sky gone. Still, great mono capture my friend and PP is superb!

Very graphically precise. And I do genuinely like the dark edge of the skyline.

I understand Mark's point but I too want the sky there: it relieves the overall austerity of the scene. No need to add austerity these days.
Love the dip of the land, the precise placement of walls and hut within the frame, etc, etc. To judge by the muddy patches the hut is popular with both shepherds and sheep.
Fabulous textures and mono.
Regards
Bill

That's because it is part of the wall Kate. Probably adds to the strength and security of the hut to have it as part of the wall ....... plus it saves on stone.

Going to apologise in advance, because I don't know much about landscape photography, but I'd love to see this in colour!

You don't need to apologize, Alex, but you wouldn't like the colour original... very nondescript, subtracting from the image rather than adding to it. The colour simply had no relevance. Smile

Such a stark and beautiful landscape. The sky has to be there to give it a relationship to the earth. Your very interesting and well done composition is a joy. This has my eye and my mind wandering all over those fields.

The thing that is strange to me, and I have to say.....your pov has made the greggs look a bit 2 dimensional, a bit like a cardboard cut out. Maybe a shuffle to the left to get the side of the pasty shop in view?.................
Not that I am critisising your lovely mono image you understand Blush......its lovely Grin

You're very observant, Diane. But you're forgetting that it's Wednesday.

Very effective image, Alan. Composition works very well, no problem with the sky for me, unusual hut construction incorporating the wall.

Great composition and wonderful leading lines. It has to be mono with beautiful tones and texture. Another cracking image Alan.

I too would be inclined to trim the top off down to the horizontal wall.
For me it would leave the doubt as to where the walls go.
It's a fabulous wall and the poor sod who built it would never have guess how we looked and pored over his hard graft.

PS sorry to be so late commenting on a great image Alan.

The square format, the framing, the composition are spot on, Alan. Wasn't convinced about the texture at first but it definitely grows on you.
