An excellent part played by the beech leaves.

It's a beautiful shot, but I feel that strong light area at the top draws the eye and could be cropped out.

Very nice mate. I was up the top of there a couple of months back, trying to persuade some canoeists to go over the edge Smile

Gonna be back there next week.

Wow, you really nailed this one Dougie! Every small area of this image has interest and the composition flows well, literally and figuratively. I see what Anne means, though it is a small bit of the frame and you could always darken it, if it would be distracting in a print.

Well done Douglas, the scene is well captured and photogenic, with the autumn colours an added bonus.
Did you consider cropping out the sky?
I know the area where you captured this though not this particular fall.

Nah this isn't a walk, it's a little stroll!! Go on to Sgwd Yr Eira, now that's a walk Wink Depends where you park though, if you parked at Gwaun Hepste, it's a fair old walk. If you parked on the common near Ystradfellte then I reckon it's about twenty minutes. Very nice capture of a beautiful place that I have never taken a single photo of I am happy with.

Couldn't care less about the sky, it doesn't bother me at all. This is a gem Dougie, it's like a great jasper water slide.

Sky? Where? Oh that itsy-bitsy piece at the top? Couldn't care less what that looks like, it's too small for me to care.

This looks great, Dougie!

And I like your title - none of that "Let's come up with an easy English title that everyone will understand"-stuff, but the real thing!
