Wakehurst Place

By mattmatic  
A shot from the lovely Wakehurst Place earlier today.

Polariser, f/7.1, 1/13s, ISO200, 24mm, handheld.

Found out two of my Cokin Z-pros have gotten scratched - what a pain! But, hopefully the set of shots I got with and without NDs make up for that disappointment...

Oh, and this was a complete nightmare to compress, so you'd better take a look at the large one first Smile
(Edited on a lappy that's long overdue calibration.)

Comments welcome!
