Looking Up at Chastleton House

By DicksPics
More pictures from Chastleton House in Oxfordshire, still with the wide angle lens!
Versions 1 to 4 are on the 'Looking Up' theme. I think the sun helped to bring out the rich colours of the stonework in V2 and V3.
V5(not on the 'Looking Up' theme) is, hopefully, an improved and less 'skewed' version of the 'lead' picture in my Chastleton House upload a couple of days ago.
I felt there was a limit to how much I could 'unskew' the image - using Lightroom 4.
I wanted to leave enough around the image to enable reasonable cropping as well as leaving the bench more or less untouched.

Again, I like them a lot, especially like the 5th and the nice detain on the side wall, ****. Wonderful shots of a mighty building!

1 & 5 for me too. Could framing in 1 and 5 is a lot better perspective, ****.

Great stuff, ****! A cracking set of images; I particularly liked version 4 which seems very impressive and has a commanding presence. The "new" version in number 5 is an improvement too!

You have captured all the excellent detail in that beautiful Cotswold stonework in this set, ****, and what you have managed in V 5 is so much more easy on the eye than was the previous version.
Just wish we had visited all those years back.......a beautiful building in a beautiful spot, as all these shops have shown.
