A nicely composed shot with some nice light. excellen t colours / tones which all lend a very gentle feel to the image . Also very much like the rarher unusual inclusion of a figure in the shot and even better that it is yourself which all adds extra interest .Well done on a lovely image...Phil

So sorry to have missed this one earlier.

It is so lovely - I can see this as the opening or closing to a film or a book cover. The light and comp is so lovely. A bit late I know but shortlisted.

What a great idea! The light on you is beautiful and your clothes are just perfect for it. Unfortunately, the camera seems to be at a bit of an angle, though this may be just an optical illusion from the horizon being a hill and the dam (?) being in receding perspective. A clockwise rotation of about 3° gives a more relaxed and balanced shot, in my opinion.

Maybe I should pack a summer dress and straw hat in my camera bag, too? Or maybe not — this angle of lighting would probably be unflattering to my hairy legs. Wink
