Took this one a while ago, it's of the old fort at Tenby, in Pembrokeshire. As I live only a few miles from Tenby, I seem to have a lot of images of the place. Trouble is, the whole place has been photographed a million times by all the visitors, making it difficult to get an original shot. Please view the large version if you have the time.

Thank you for taking the time at looking at my previous uplods.

I like the way you've used the plants to frame the fort. I'd like to see the whole of the tree included but perhaps it wasn't possible.

I'm going to return to re-shoot this one, as i was using non wide angle lense, so couldn't fit as much detail in to the shot that I would have liked to.

Hi Stephen,
Love the large version,this one is like a painting and when you look at it it has your eyes rambling all over looking at the different types of flowers, lake, gull flying, great timing,movement,colour/tones,exposure and textures.Classy and elegant.Take care.AnnSmile

Framing the fort like that between the trees works well, the sharpness and detail almost leap out at you.
Delightful spot and you've showed it to great advantage.

Great image... well composed and captured. My only slight niggle is that the selective exposure adjustment you have made on the fort itself is a little noticable and would pobably benefit from being done again with just a little more care. Smile
