From our holiday cottage in Cumbria a few weeks ago...
I generously allowed Bill to upload first, this is my take on the subject.
Thanks for looking,

Same place, rather different take... I can't draw conclusions, really, about individual styles - I just like both approaches. This retains the geometry, but is less stylised, perhaps, than Bill's view?

Thanks guys and thanks to Keef for the UA.
The main differences between mine and Bill's are format and my decision to include the wood panel on the left. I considered a square crop, which would have given a more stylised look. But I like that negative space on the right...

perfectly composed with the negative space and the tonal nuances are so well recorded

Mondrianish. A good composition, Moira, the picture as a pivot between the two sides of the image.

And a very good take it is too, Moira.
And you can take it that I've given you my award.Wink

Excellent composition! I love the simplistic nature of it...the lines, tones and the geometric shapes. I also really like the landscape format for this, with the wood panel strip at the left gives nice contrast! Smile

A good play on straight lines, and almost pure black and white tones.

I prefer Bill's take on this, and for one reason only. The wood panel does not match the interior design of the rest of the frame, and in my eye is a foreign body in an otherwise clean, almost pure, landscape.
I think if you cropped out the panel, then the inclusion of the so-called negative space to the right would sway my vote from him to you...

I like the plainness of it, Moira, and the lines and angles. The picture on the wall at the back makes us want to proceed forward and investigate further 😃👍
Re your comments on my upload, yes I noticed immediately on looking at the poster that someone had added '& Frank'! 😁 He certainly was a legend in Wakefield and can remember many years ago Frank 'Heppy' Hepworth, and his out of town fish & chip shop, then the most famous one in the city centre complete with a night club at the rear called ‘Heppy’s Fish ‘Ole’. 😃

Looks like a place I would like to play about with, different crops and processing! There is nothing there but there is so much!
