Corfe At Dawn

By Legend147
A brief visit down South and I just had to photograph this iconic castle. Just a slight bit of mist occurring.

Shot taken from the East side looking West. I had a closer viewpoint which meant a drive (but shooting into the sun) instead I opted for the half mile walk from where I was staying . Giving me a view between the gap in the hills. I was however positioned 2kms away on a hill side and only had my wide angle lens at 35mm. Knowing I would be able to crop in during post processing to get closer. The final cropped image is approximately 20x smaller than the original frame. Today√‚ís modern sensors allow this. I liked the light on the foreground trees with an some early colours of autumn. I think their close proximity also provide depth throughout the image. Just one exposure no filters used.

Thanks all for the awards/feedback on my last image-Andy 🙂

Glorious light and colours; the 'poster' effect referred to above is very appealing. SmileSmileSmile

So very interesting to see this iconic castle in the wider context, Andy. Well done for that. We see so many with the surrounding countryside excluded!
Your notes reveal that you can do wonders with the 'wrong' lens!
