Had a wonderful morning photographing St Thomas a Becket church near Fairfield. This grade 1 listed building sits on an isolated rise on the Romney Marsh. The conditions and light were perfect.

Clever comp with the stream as a lead in while the church is such a great focal point being colourful and very well modelled by the side lighting (and holding it's tower on a 1/3 too I see!). The frosty grass is full of texture as is the sky, which incidentally I think you have done incredibly well to not overexpose given the church crosses the horizon. Did you merge 2 exposures? It's a very effective and powerful image, well deserving of all the accolades! Smile
