I joined up with the frans birthday bash party for the afternoon and sunset so off we went on simon palmers magical mystery tour round derbyshire, roads I didn't even knew existed.

The last stop was Roach End farm and we ended up with tripods circling the farm that we discovered.

great afternoon guys, cheers Smile

Might have only got the camera out for a wee while, Rich, but you certainly made the most of it! Grin

That is some shot Richard. Normally I would be very, very impressed, but at the moment I am only very impressed as I am too busy trying to kick myself to spend any more time on being impressed.

Had I been on this side of the wall I still would not have managed this, but cannot help wishing I had at least tried.

Not trying to take anything away from this though as it as a stunning shot and a very well deserved EC.

A lot of shots came from this shoot and all feature the wonderfully dramatic and colourful sky. I like this for the balance of elements from the foreground reeds to the derelict barn and then sun. I also feel you've done a grand job of retaining detail in the sun which is difficult when shooting direct into it. The barn is well sized in the overall mix so it's neither lost in the landscape nor too dominant.

I used Keiths 50 50 10 sharpen on the photo to bring out the definition, but it's put too much contrast between the tree and sky Sad

Anyway, removed that layer and it looks fine for print now Smile
