Leeds Castle combo

By Jasper87  
To prove I did go to Leeds Castle the other day (although I think I have appeared in someone else's images TongueGrin) here are my three offerings of the Castle itself.

No links to a music video, no quotes from poems AND no tripod. This is me unplugged Grin

You have really captured both the beauty and charm of Leeds castle in this trio of very well composed and captured photographs Dave. I particularly admire image number tow, the Gaggle of Geese adding to the calm and serenity of this idyllic location.

Three very well constructed and composed images of this picturesque location, V2 is outstanding.

Fine set Dave, all well composed,
9 Sep 2013 8:41AM
Very good set, love the colours and brightness of them. v3 is the one I like best. Has a certain sharpness of content, not presentation.

I like the way the light is creatig those shadows in V1.
the geese are a big bonus in V2 and the play of light and shadow is
superb in v3.

I like the punting view particularly, showing how people relate to the castle nowadays. Your timing to catch the passengers looking at the low archway adds direction and humour too! The colours are great in V1 and V3 but V2 is a tad muddy for my liking.

Many years ago Dave I went to Venice and came back with a load of rusty pics.
No one was any the wiser as it could have been rust from Leith Docks !!
Proof that you were indeed here with this set.
Stunning images Dave. My favorite is V1 as the shadows & reflection compliment each other so well.
