Perfect. A little sign of homely domesticity in a wilderness.

Have just read a book called " The Lewis Man" by Peter May in which the conditions and landscape of Lewis and Harris is marvellously portrayed, and this image fits in so well with the descriptions of the situation there.
Many deserted and decaying homesteads scattered over the landscape.
Difficult to pick between the two versions, but the crisper V 1 possibly just makes it for me.
Ronnie.

(PS. "The Lewis Man" is the second book of a trllogy, the first being "The Bleak House"...........good stories and worth a read.....R)

V2 for me, Ann. Nothing to do with the haloing, which I hadn't noticed, just the feeling that the red wall in V1 is just a touch too sharp and conflicts with the stars of the show Smile

A stunning capture, in probably the most photographed location in the UK. Simply superb, an almost 'Land that time forgot'.

I wonder how long those pegs have been hanging there, Ann? Enjoy Great Dixter, a wonderful place to visit. Carol

V2 for me too Ann, nicely captured.
Pin sharp...sorry about that Ann, Sad

I think I prefer the softer of the two, but on the other hand maybe...

Dougie

PS I've never been to Great Dixter is there a less great version too?

A statement of current conditions, of desertion and dereliction... or an exercise in selective focus and composition. A thinking image, Ann, and very effective, and v2 for me.

Yep...V2 works better for me. Not because of any haloing (I didn't notice any but maybe I don't have a very discerning eye...lol...doh!) but V2 is just nice and soft, s'all.

And those are two very knackered pegs, aren't they!

Well shot, Ann Smile

My feelings have been echoed by several comments above. I thought V1 was fine until I saw V2, more subtle and the pegs seem to stand out better too.

Beautifully seen and composed. Those pegs are just so right against this old hut. Excellent.

This image is so much more than the sum of its component parts conveying as it does lives once lived there. Very clever. Both versions work.
28 Jul 2012 11:27AM
A brilliant bit of thinking and creativness. Nice depth of field.

Nice one.

Excellent composition and do Ann. Has a great sense of atmosphere and timeless quality.
Notice you mention visiting Great Dixter that day - bet the gardens are even more lush than usual with all the rain.
