Hi everyone,

This was taken at the Valley of the Rocks in Devon............a really, really magnificent place!! The setting sun seemed to be just out to highlight this rock........

Thanks for looking,

Love the balence in this photo, the rock,fence then cloud are right on the rule of thirds then the clouds pulls you to the right hand side of the frame.
Lovely lighting too.
Well done.

I like it but I'm not sure about the RoT in this case as there is not enough interest on the right to balance things. I'd be tempted to crop square from the right and place the rock and gate right on the vertical axis of the frame...

Beautifully picked out in such lovely light. I understand what joolsb is saying but for me this shot is about peace and having a large area to the RH-side does seem to give the viewer somewhere to look whilst resting on that beautifully lit rock. OK waffle over - lovely image Debbie

Hi Debbie
Just recovered from the shock of seeing a picture of yours with no sea in it.....LOL. I think Dave is right (but then Dave's usually are) Smile, it is all about the light and you've captured that perfectly. Great to see you working outside your comfort zone. I might have to take a few seascapes to try and compete!!

Lovely warmth in this very pleasing composition which makes the viewer want to walk past the rock, through the fence on onward up to the brow of the hill to see what other joys are awaiting.

Very nice indeed Debs!
