Same farm as my last upload but a different wider composition, taken on my way back up the hill behind the farm (I was parked a couple of miles away on the other side of the hill). I shot this because of the layering again, lacking any lead in lines that went into the frame, I thought the zig-zags of the wall might suit a landscape orientation and I liked the light on the slope beyond the farm buildings.

Lovely light again here, but, and I know this is going to sound a bit, well, up its own you-know-what, the wall is acting as a bit of a barrier to getting into the image. Its so pin-sharp compared to the mistyness of the rest of the shot that your eye is drawn to it.
Having said that I agree about the zig-zag's they work really well and it is still an excellent shot. I do talk some old guff at times. Andy

I rather like this composition, certainly one which starts off in the right direction, yes the foreground is somewhat too sharp, however in does provide me with the opportunity to look more intently at the foreground before hopping off over the wall, and into the misty fields and dales below.

Now, if you could have removed half a dozen or so of the rocks from the middle of the wall to leave a 'v' nick in it......

I did start to agree with Andy re the wall, but the building is quite prominent and it pulls you over the wall into the image, and reduces the barrier effect. I like the more saturated and sharper foreground as a balance to the mistiness of the hills - a very natural effect, and you've reduced the blander sky area well. Another lovely landscape image, Al.

Thanks very much Andy, Nathan and Dave.
Andy, it's not guff when you offer constructive criticism like that, it's gold! That's the reason epz is so great and has helped develop my skills, through the generosity of individuals like you who take the time not just to compliment but to critique! Nathan and Dave also saw what you meant so you are in excellent company! Thanks again. Smile
