Hever and Heathfield

Two of my favourite, often revisited garden destinations, Hever Castle (Kent) and Heathfield House (nr Croydon).

I have found a number of my DNG files from these places not yet used, as I explore the back catalogue and continue to edit on the go and on mobile, using the Snapseed App on my Android phone.

All with the K7 (what else? ) and the Hever ones use the DA18-55 MKII, while the Heathfield ones use the D FA28-105.

Nigel, in general I like these compositions. For me the Heathfield photos look the most natural, whereas the Hever images appear rather too cool and somewhat darker than I would have expected for a bright spring or summer day with the sun well above the horizon. However, they are your images and perhaps what you intended. After some adjustments my choice would be the one with the rowing boats.

The first of the Heathfield images is the one I'd choose out of this series, particularly for its use of colour - and 'popping' colour at that! A well-thought composition, too: the green blades in the foreground bringing my eye to travel beyond it and explore the rest.

Lovely set, Nigel. I particularly like the Hever Castle images - not too dark for me and a tribute to that lens.

Every day's a holiday!
