You have done well here Stuart with a handheld shot. I like the yellow and brown/black effect, it gives the shot impact. Not 100% sure about the composition. I might have preferred it in the centre for a symetrical look or more obviously off to one side.

Best wishes

Fully agree with Catherine, - well done for a hand held. The depth of field does fall off quite a bit as it rises, - expected with a wide aperture, - but still a good effort. Using ISO 800 and f/8 might have been an option, - but its not now Im sure!

The composition is strong and the fact that the picture is sharp at all is testament to your hand holding skills. However, it needs a longer exposure to brighten it up a bit (typically 15-30s) and blue in the sky to stop the darker areas appearing brown. You can sort out the colour issues by making it mono, but the long exposures would need a tripod and a remote release cable (although you can get creative with bags, walls etc and using the timer with mirror lock up - to stop mirror slap vibration).
