Love the wibbly road and stone walls, great pov.
"The long and winding Road...."
If I had to find something that detracts the eye a little, it is the sheep pen on the right - it loses its effect of barren a little bit for me - but lovely capture
This kind of shot works very well foreshortened through the long lens and the vertical letterbox is an effective composition. All I would suggest is a slightly different crop. The wall comes very close to the right-hand edge of the frame, so I'd prefer to see a bit more space there. I'm also not a big fan of the road disappearing from view and coming back again — it obstructs the viewer's journey through the frame. So I'd also crop off the bottom third or so, so the road makes a continuous ribbon through the photograph (this would also remove the sheep pen that Andy's not fond of). With that crop, there's not a lot goingg on to the left, so you could narrow the frame down to about the aspect ratio you have here.
An extremely interesting composition - Oh! for one man and his dog walking along suitably placed. Possibly needs to be a little darker.
Like the idea with the long lens giving an individual image,maybe could be sharper and ajusted in levels...JT
Well seen shot Rob, made a mod in P/S enhanced the colours and contrast,a little sharpening and a crop.
Hope you approve.
I like this image, it is different and that's why I like it. Most people make their mind up about an image in the first 5 seconds of viewing it and for me it was the reminder of what I miss about England, the Yorkshire Dales. So for me it had the desired effect.
I have that same lens that you used and it has flattened the image out somewhat but that for me doesn't really matter. I think because I lived in Yorkshire, my mind knows what this is like in reality. I don't mind the wall coming close to the edges because one side balances the other out and the walls make those 'S' and 'C' shapes that we all crave in our images which is a good thing.
I also don't mind the road disappearing but these are subjective and Dave above has commented differently to me. The image is possible a touch too bright but for me the biggest problem is the road leads me to the top of the image and then all I get is a patch of blue sky and the road is gone. I think that this is an ideal opportunity to get your mate in his red coat and on his pushbike just coming over the hill just below the horizon so my eyes have somewhere to stop when I get there.
Otherwise, great effort, well done and I hope that my comments are helpful.
