Nice use of wide angle to create some dangerously tilted angles - everything looks as though it's about to collapse.

Three images at play here: the sheepfold itself with its strong detail and use of perspective, the distant and indistinct background, and the overall composition. Spectacular mono in the microcosm, the lichen in particular, but the context is invaluable. I could return to this image again and again.
Bill

P.S.: I like Goya and Breughel the elder, Man Ray and Dalí too. It helps to view originals rather than reproductions in books, so Rembrandt in the Rijksmuseum, the Rembrandthuis or the Hermitage speaks to me more clearly than Rembrandt in Thames & Hudson. A matter of proportion and presence. Just thought I'd mention it Smile

Thanks for your critique, it means a lot, and I'm really pleased you like the image. I'll come clean and tell you the original straight from the camera was, like the insitu light, fairly flat ( though strong enough to give me burned out highlights top right!!! ). Did an awful lot of work in post, especially burning and dodging in small selections, to end up with something that was closer to how I feel about the place, and to how it usually looks on days of better light.

Re your P.S. I absolutely agree, although I do feel that good Art will, and does, transcend even poor reproduction. Genius will out. My personal favourite set of landscape photographs is the group of images of Bronte country and the Calder valley by Fay Godwin, in her book with Ted Hughes "Remains of Elmet." The quality of reproduction is abysmal, but the quality of the work shines through fiercely.

Thanks again.

Alan.
