Superb image and presentation.
Excellent composition like the way you have used trees and forground to form a natural frame.

The light on the priory is excellent creating a lovely reflection on the still water. Nicely framed with the trees.

I might have cropped the right hand side off a bit to make the building less central but WOW. Lovely shot. Click. Ali.

Love the light and reflections. I agree with Ali it would look even better with a bit cropped off the right side. Click

Very classy shot

Thanks Mark, Ali, Helen, Steve and Tony. I know what you mean about the central position of the Priory but I thought that if I croppped I would lose the natural framing of the trees.

Wot, no stag? Or is he in hiding? I think I see him in the far distance!!

Beautiful image Gareth, like it as it is, no need to crop. Lovely lighting and reflections, and very well framed indeed.

I've only just seen this. I think you've done well here. I know this place well (I live quite nearby) and there isn't great access.

I've long been meaning to have a crack at this, well done.


ps. do you live locally?

Thanks very much Steve. It is hard to get to, isn't it. To take this one I had to hold my camera almost at water level and hope it was pointing in the right direction. I did consider going over into the field it's in (and I probably will next time because, despite all the "private property" signs I can't believe that anyone would do anything about it) but, as you can see, there wasn't much light left.
I actually live in Teddington, so not next door but not a million miles away either.
