Through the garden wall


Photo Information
Part of the formal gardens at West Green House (NT).
Whilst the gardens date back hundreds of years they are are now managed by a Chelsea Award winning gardener who also rents the house from the NT.
It was in the informal woodland garden that I took the shot of the Snakes-head Fritillary, posted earlier.
And on the far wall, high up, is the carved quotation from Pope that I also posted previously

Many thanks for all your nice comments.
I love finding 'Frames' for shots and this view just begged to be taken.
The shade on the left presented a bit of a challenge but luckily Adobe RAW sorted that out.

Thanks again
Peter

I find the composition actually quite clever - I don't know if it was intentional or not but the fact that you haven't centralised the distant monument stops it being symmetrical (which often makes photos a little boring), this coupled with the clear detail and textures, and the porthole framing really make this stand out as a really good photo

Many thanks, Malc & Lenny.

I can add that the off-centre PoV WAS intentional as I too find 'straight-on' shots a bit boring.
I was only able to go a little off-centre however because of the light and the narrow 'window' between the far end of the bushes which would have cut out too much of the monument had I gone much further.
So overall I'm pleased with the result and very pleased that others liked it as well.

Thanks again
Peter
