Nothing spectacular. Taking a break from an image I'm working on. I did like this one though - again from a visit with Rex and Nora. I liked that cloud ....

I like it. Very pleasing composition and your usual great B/W tones. This vantage point gives one a very good feeling of the lofty position of the castle. In contrast to Corfe Castle 1, this one gives the feeling of the ruins tumbling down the hillside rather than sinking into the hills. Such a different feel from the very same location! (But the same end result, I suppose, with the earth reclaiming the castle.) This looks like a place that one could spend hours at. Hope you have some more views to share.

Nice image of a castle, that seems to have gone through a lot during time. I like the pov. and compo.

"Nothing spectacular"

...but I think it has some Z-en, Eugene. I like the 'Z' of the composition: cloud; castle; slope (or base of image if you like). The dark patch of veg' in lower right punches above its weight and forms a nice balance to the other elements, as well as making your sig more prominent. Yes, not every image can be a cracker, but this is still very good indeed. If anything, I'd go hard on selective sharpening on some of that diagonal wall to bring out the gritty texture and contrast it more with the grass. You've shown restraint in the upper sky and I think that was wise.

Looks ...

really nice Eugene. Impressive POV and I like this cloud too :-)) And sometimes this kind looks much better then a spectacular one :-))

Wish you luck with your picture, from which you must take a break, regards,
