I like it, Frank, especially the shadows of the railings. I am wondering how much symmetry you were aiming for. It looks as if you were standing in the middle of the path, but the railings are different either side.
My first impression was that it's not straight. Although the top of the fort is straight, the bottom is not. Maybe it's the slope of the sand? I tried a quick bit of perspective correction using the bases of the front railings for the bottom line and the fort roof for the top line, and I think it looks better. The tops of the foreground railings are at the same position on the vertical, too. What do you think? I also did a simple Smart Photo Fix on it.
Pamela.

I like it too - breaks a lot of compositional rules for you! Pleased you did - it works well. Strong and well composed - for ME - to lift from a very good record to a pictorial image, would need my standard figure on thw walkway.

Hi Frank,

I like a break in the compositional rules it makes a change to see it now and again. For me I think the time of day lets this one down is the shadows of the railings, I find them such a distraction from what should be leading lines straight up to the front door of the castle/fort. What i had in mind is one of those stormy dark days with a thunderstorm looming behind the fort but with clear skies and the sun still shining behind you to light up the fort against the stormy backdrop.

You'll just have to jump into the car when that happens or camp out and wait for it, should only be a few months wait.....lol Smile

Being serious again I think it is just the time of day that makes or breaks a shot like this.
