I waited for quite some time here for the light to play across the Topping but it was not to be. I quite like this as a different view to the norm, I have more to come.

You must have been at some altitude there. You seem awfully close to the clouds.
Lovely shot anyway.

Not seen it from this angle before but it works. Great comp and detail and the sky compliments it well.

Excellent composition. The sky is a little blown, but doesn't detract much.

Hello Dougie, This is the standard I would expect from one who has been 40 years taking photographs...the clarity is much better and the composition has an artistic element to your scene...my only criticsm is the sky which again is over exposed but a filter could have been employed to achieve a better balance in the cloud formation...all in all I don't know what you have done but a huge improvement in your exposure. See you around my friend.
Doug.

Brilliant composition, and the soft warm light enhances the image. I love the way the sky seems to light up the fields in the distance.

Lovely shot, I cant decide whether I like the hill in the gate though. It draws my eye just that little to much. Thats my own opinion though and I am only a newbie.

I agree it should work, but the hill is maybe too perfectly framed by the gate (?) just a thought. A lovely pastoral feel to it and I love the name - sounds like a Hobbit, and it looks like the Shire - lovely

I don't know how I keep missing your superb portfolio, Douglas. You're becoming one of my favourites so I don't miss treats like this from now on. I love this image, particularly the way you have framed the hill's peak between the gate posts. The slightly bleached feature of the sky is a mere niggle and doesn't undermine the many strengths in this image. It's a beauty.
