Today.s version of Kilchurn Castle carries a lot more impact than the last, Isabella, with the low warm sunlight picking out the Castle nicely and adding a band of warmth across an otherwise cool winter snowscene. I think the composition is fine, and I would not recommend cropping any of the f/g.......I feel you need the grassy tussocks peeping up through the snow to give f/g interest and to provide a good base for the rest of the scene. However, that's just my opinion and it might be interesting to see what others have to say.

The scenery and light in this is delightful and the clarity is great but I don't think the composition is as engaging as it could be. The castle is placed too centrallyfor my tastes. I wish you had enabled modifications then I could have posted some to see what you think.

Oh yes, the castle stands apart from the trees now and side lighting sculpts the shapes much better than in yesterday's take, that's exactly what I had in mind. Properly exposed, exquisite play of colour, very graphic - a pleasure to the eye. I think doing away with about 1/4 of the frame on the right could be advantageous, not only because of the "by-the-book" non-centrality in composition. Also because the snow-capped slope on the far right draws the eye away from the castle, outwards.
