Paul, I love that white house by the church and I like that neat narrow strip of the brown patch between the green fields and the trees on the horizon! Well done!

....and to the right of the white house is the base of an old windmill which has been a home for a number of years. I just wish that I lived in it!
Thanks Nezih.

Following on from the horizon discussion on my joke offering of 'Sunset Swans' (banned subjects on another thread), I noticed this pic of yours.

You have two competing horizontal lines, the true horizon and the band of green. You could be forgiven for aligning either to be horizontal. However aligning to one will accentuate the tilt on the other since they slope in different directions.

All I am saying is, it is difficult to pick the best element to work with sometimes. The eye is drawn by what feels most natural at the time of shooting and maybe this is a case-in-point for post processing (which I try to avoid, get it right in camera).

I spent ages on this one! The "horizon" was sloping down to the left and thus I tried to base the whole alignment on the church spire, but I still think that actual slope was far greater than I have portrayed. Debatable subject though.
