Private Playing Field

By DicksPics
Today's images were taken in August 2018 on a sunny day in Oxford. I was free to visit the delights of this lovely city whilst my wife re-united with some of her college friends to celebrate a mutual and significant birthday!Smile

The playing field, which is named 'Merton Field', belongs to Oxford University's Christ Church College. Merton College is the building which features most prominently in most of the images.

The spire of Christ Church Cathedral can be seen to the left of V2 and behind a clump of trees in the centre of V3.

Many thanks for all votes and comments on my 'Himley Reflections 2' upload - very much appreciated, as always.

I like the pov in the lead and the lead is my favourite. It's almost as if the significant parts of the photo follow the curvature of the fence. I don't think you used a fish eye but somehow that's the feel of it.

A big playing field for a church, I would think. I love the wide angel lead, Richard.

An excellent set of the hallowed fields of Oxford. The fence is a great base for the image, and leading you on to the fine building in the background.
