A change from the EPZ meet photos - and back to Ardnamurchan over on the west coast of Scotland.

This croft was next to where were were staying when we went on holiday. There was nobody staying there the week that were were visiting so I decided to get some close up shots and try to capture some of the textures etc.... not sure if it works but I like it.

1/1250 sec @ F/2.8, ISO 100. Circular polariser.

Yup it's different and good for it!

Personally i'd like a bit more space above the window -- it'd balance out the green at the bottom -- but it is still a nice shot.

Lovely texture in the wall Jeanie, well spotted. Tend to agree with mark, a little bit more space above the window would balance out the foreground - but still a lovely image

Thanks for your thoughts Mark and Chant - there was no space above the window - the roof was there - gutter and black roof so I wanted to take the pic without that.

Accentuated the wall texture by D&B - it was a little subtle for me since I'm a bloke - converted to B&W with a green filter to keep the grass the same tone and uploaded the modified version after you went offline so you couldn't shout at me 'cos I left the 2 little white lines dark.

I left the lamp in on purpose.

The 3 'things' in the window give you a triangular area which rests easier with the eye as you explore it in a circular motion rather than 2 points of interest which cause the eye to rattle back and forth.
