I came across this break in the wall whilst walking at the weekend.
Its a shame how the break in the wall is filled in by a wooden pallet and old gate and not repaired to its original state.....can't complain, its added to my picture!

Technically there are a lot of plus points in this - foreground interest, the break in the wall leading the eye into the scene, the vertical height of the tree drawing the image together, middle distance interest in the field patterns, the trees and the wall creating strong diagonals but the lighting is flat making the image not very inspiring. If you were to re-visit this scene with the fields being lit up by the sun with a stormy sky, or a 'golden hour' shot the image could be very good. I would be inclined to yank the wood and iron out of the way as well (or edit it out).

Most landscape photographers producing great images re-visit a site many times to get that 'perfect' light.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave, Thanks for your comments. I'd revisited this spot 3 times over the 3 days I was there and the light was awful each time, but have uploaded what I felt was best. It is due a revisit next time i'm there. Thankyou for your comments.

Works for me mate. The foreground really draws you into the shot.
