You've created a nice 'textured lighting' if that's the right phrase!

Thanks Andy, yes I think you're right, it's a fine example of textured lighting!

An intriguing picture. Can't decide whether the brown patch enhances or detracts from it. Or whether the foreground at the bottom draws the attention too much. But what the heck, I like pictures that make you think. And this is one.

Great light. I think the brown patch draws you in, The bit I'm not sure about is the out of focus section in the immediate foreground. Is it a result of the PP tools?

Nice one Nigel. Slightly unreal and ominous.

Hello Nigel. If your lens could have reached far enough, the photo for me would have been the equivalent of a widescreen view from the top 40% of the posted image, to comprise those diagonal bands of trees, hedges, sunlit fields, and long shadows.

Thanks all, and I do agree there could be different crops and layouts to explore. I was really enjoying the perspective and DOF effects with the long zoom in such an environment, from that vantage point so was tempted by the wider view showing the various 'layers'.

And the OOF area in the foreground is the optical effect of that being out of the focus zone, which again I sort of enjoyed as I don't do a lot of telephoto shots.

The dreamy quality is the result of some PP playfulness, using the 'glamour glow' effect in Snapseed, which is clearly designed mainly for portraits of young woman, but unfortunately I was on my own that morning up on Farthing Down!
