Wanted to get a nicely lit, clean shot of this well-photographed landmark. The weather and sky were excellent so tried to make the most of them.

It was quite early so not so many tourists about, but I still had to zap about 6 or 7 in Photoshop afterwards! Can you tell where they were?!

English Heritage don't let you get too close nowadays, unfortunately. But because the sky and weather were providing such a nice backdrop I was quite happy to show the stones in their full surroundings.

Colours - no polariser and hardly any tweaking in PS afterwards. These fantastic colours come (consistently) courtesy of the Mamiya lens. (Velvia helps, but the lens gives great saturation with other films too.)

Welcome to ePz and I must say this is excellent. Reminds me of the Microsoft one!

Well done
