Grim and gritty. The force is strong with this one.....

Mmmm!... Magnificently mean'n'moody, Malc. Might mean many more medals.

I like those two sunlit sheep on the right for balance.
My instinct, and I suspect Alan's, would have been to crop the right side off, but it would have lost that more relaxed feel.

Quote:that more relaxed feel

The image is in keeping with the entire holiday, then, for so it was. Though the holiday was far from being in black & white Smile
How about 'grittily pastoral'?

I also like the balance of the house with those two highlighted sheep, a lovely scene of rural Britain, the most i like is the processing which is creating tons of moods in this otherwise simple landscape, Excellent...

Very nice.

Your processing has given a very distant feel to this one, Malc. An ideal scene for your working of it.

Its your presentation and composition that attracts me to your image. You usually see this scene with rolling green fields and sunlit stone dykes which makes yours more attractive and different.

Fine processing too!

Good lead in with the wall but it would still work for me cropped to the bright line below the building.
Superb mono processing Malcolm.

As my comment on the previous peak image was a bit 'left field' i'll
just go with the dreaded 'Nice image', Malc. even if it's clearly the
field on the right. A very satisphying concoction Blush

Superb image

It's a long time since I walked around this area! A very striking image and I'm intrigued as to how a picture which at first seems so 'understated' can have such astonishing clout ... but it does! The eye is very nicely drawn into the softly illuminated central area. It makes me think of a wood block engraving. I think that second row of gongs needs finishing off otherwise it will irritate me.
Yours exactingly, Hercule Poirot. (Or as you may refer to me in Norway, Hercule 'Norwegian Blue' Poirot. SmileSmileSmile

Sorry Malc - owing to a technical malfunction I now realise that your UA did not materialise as promised last night. Having just returned to the image for the purposes of further fawning admiration I found that the second row of gongs remained incomplete and I am now aware that an unintended delivery shortfall has been identified by our client focused **** up matrix.. Here at 'UA's for You Dot Con' we take these matters very seriously and assure you that lessons will be learned; robust and rigorous policies will be made up on the back of an envelope and implemented without fear or favour, come what may, going forward. We trust that you are reassured; we certainly are. We've got a big box full of similar highly original cliches and we aren't afraid to run them up the flag pole and see if they flutter. If you have been affected by any of the issues please get over it.

Yours, Tarquin Smooth, Customer Relations and Client Satisfaction Facilitator.
