Hi all,

just a couple from a trip to Petworth Park in Sussex.








Not so sure about the second one.. hence all c&c welcome as always.

Cheers

Well to tell you the truth I actually prefer the second one - great colours, and I think the rolling foreground works well contrasted against the sky. And I like how the building is peeping out at you.

The first shot is good; it's just a shame the deers were'nt in a better position. If both were upright facing the camera more, it would have been perfect. Though this is of course totally out of your control amd I should'nt criticize you for that. You've done really well to get what you have. I do like the depth of field on it too.

Two good shots liam!

I agree with Bob on both images. The second one is fantastic IMO, I really like it.
I'd like to see a B&W version of this, you have some excellent tones in this shot to warrant it. Nice one.

Another vote for the second one here. i would go further and suggest you crop out the trees on the right, so the diagonal really dominates the picture.

Second one for me too, and I was thinking along the same lines as Peter and was going to suggest a crop.

Hi all,

and thanks for the comments. I tried a few of the suggestions.. here goes...

I had a couple of shots with the a deer being inquisitive.. so here's one of them.





Here's a tighter crop of the next one, ridding the shot of the trees...





and here's one in mono.. I just left a hint of yellow to add a sepia like finish to it.. a bit of old world charm..





Better?

Cheers
