It is a decent enough shot technically of the ruins Katie which look interesting. But for the shot to come alive you need better lighting - it looks like one of those horrible grey days. A bit of atmosphere would work wonders - possibly mist, frost or snow. Shooting early in the morning or in the late afternoon would be better if there is sun around.

I might try and move back a bit as well so we get to see something of the surrounding coutryside.

The shot has tremendous potential but it is a question of choosing the right day to get the most out of the location.

Best wishes

Catherine

Franks imported sky has served well to illustrate the need for interest in that area.

we all have the need to take images whilst we are there but the light is not, and i am no different but to be sucessfull directional light and an interesting sky are pretty much necessary elements. you do of course with a sky this white have the relative ease of making a selection that makes importing a sky as straight forward as it can be.

the central tower is a little central but the right hand free standing coloumn is acting well as a stopper for the eye. pulling back a little to give more space could well have been advantageous.

so overall the building is nicely captured but the totally bald sky makes this just a work in progress. why not use it as means to experiment with different skies.

best regards
Phil

Always worth trying a B&W conversion to see if it improves the shot (mod uploaded to illustrate)
