The Orangery

By AshTree
There are a number of orange trees growing in containers dotted around the gardens at Saltram House. They are all over-wintered in the Orangery, which was looking particularly attractive in yesterday's late afternoon sun.

I've uploaded two views, and I've flipped each one from the original (V1 and V3 are the flipped ones... it's that 'left/right thing' as Moira would say Wink). Let me know what you think - distant or close, original or flipped! Thanks Smile

And thank you all for calling and continuing to comment and click on my sporadic uploads. Particular thanks this time to Peter (LexEquine) for his UA on my Glastonbury Abbey upload, which I haven't previously acknowledged here Smile.

V5 now added to give a broader view of the actual windows, following Bill's (woolybill1) comment.

V2 and V4 for me, I think. Lovely balance of light and shadows, the essential balance. In V3/4 I started off wondering if I would clone/crop away the little bit of foliage on the indoors side of the image, but decided it works as counterbalance.
Thanks for waking my brain up!

I did try cropping it, but like you, I felt it was needed for balance - also I liked the elongated shadow of the white bench, which was lost in the crop.

I'm more taken by V1 than V2 and prefer the portrait format overall. I think I want to see the entire source of those delightful shadows.

Some wonderful light causing those fantastic shadows and lines. The building is so well portrayed the plants almost detract from its beauty.

Excellent set, Theresa - I've seen the common element in this set - perspective - like the natural lighting
