Allan: Once again a darn good image. BTW, I would crop just some sky, never the foreground. Have a great time JRP (Nikonian at the north-eastern Mexican desert) My profile Previous photographic journey, before Nikonians: A Brief Love Story
You've got a good eye to spot that - and you're absolutely right. By the way, the original is the full D1 frame: pretty unusual that I didn't crop it, although as JRP says I could probably lose a bit of sky.
Alan, I think because of that flagstick ( or whatever it is on the roof) proportion of the sky is just fine ( need some space above the roof). Anyway, to crop or not to crop it, the picture is very nice, so..."english".
Of course it has that british taste, not just on the subjects themselves, but a clear touch of class in the selection of the subjects and in the composition. It was taken by our Sir Alan, Lord Clifton. Have a great time JRP (Nikonian at the north-eastern Mexican desert) My profile Previous photographic journey, before Nikonians: A Brief Love Story
Personally, I think the wheelbarrow adds that little extra English touch. Aren't they known as the fastidious ones? Just kind of adds that little touch of aristocracy, seeing that someone's so closely tending the grounds.. Lovely picture. How on earth did you manage to get a picture in England when it WASN'T raining?
