Really like this Alan. I love the way the murk of the wall takes the eye towards the light at the back of the image. Cracking!!

no upload yesterday.. but this one is as good as it gets.. beautifully composed..
as though everything has been done justice.. well balanced.. the amount of drama and sedation perfectly balanced.. and it's all about balance.. and it gives the statement, 'you go ahead mate, i want to see it from here.'

An area but little known by the great general public. Let's hope it stays that way as I'm almost seeing it now through your eyes rather than mine.
Superb image, Alan.

A landscape where even on a still day you are always aware of the dominant wind direction.

Nicely done Alan...the splash of light on the hills at the back is beautiful.

I love the old stone walls, if only they could talk there'd be many an interesting tale!

Everybodies really said it all Alan. I like the leadin fromthe wall which sends youto the bright spot in the distance. Really nice composition.

The light in the distance beckons us but I'm buggered if I can be bothered to walk that far. Looks good from here so will save my legs, Alan.
Top-notch comp.

Your composition is excellent Alan with a strong lead in via the wall and the sunlight on the distant field acting as focal point. I think this works well as a mono.
Perhaps darkening the sky with a gradient would balance the dark foreground a little better.

Thanks for your input, Derek. I'm unsure about the gradient, but I'll try it and see how it goes. Cheers.

works really well Alan , beautifully toned and exposed and I like the clump of trees as it leaves the viewer wandering what the landscape is going on behind, the toning is seriously good.....LOVE IT

Bleak and beautiful, Alan. I like Derek's suggestion, the bright sky at the top tends to pull the eye up the image. I think the brightest spot should be the valley where the wall leads you to. Maybe just crop to below the bright cloud in the right corner? (Thinking out loud now)

11 Mar 2014 10:48PM
Cheers Dave. Not at all sure about that crop though, I think it makes the image a bit too tight. So I'm keeping things as they are... haven't decided about the gradient.
Good to get others thoughts though.Smile
