Looks nice and sharp up front and the light is lovely. It's the perfect time of year for late light at Dunstanburgh and this shows it off a treat.

Lovely contrasting cool and warm light between fg & bg; nice warmth on the castle to draw us in across those shiny, cold stones.

an incredible image, the composition is strong, but the real power in this image comes from the foreground, those rocks glistening like polished jet, and the water looking like mist between them, a wonderful image
