I like your composition change. I shot as wide as the lens I had at the time would allow, but it didn't occur to me to extend it in post. I could also have taken more than one frame and combined them as another option but I didn't do that either!
I noticed your changed the perspective as well. I did try this but it meant cropping more than I liked, as I said I didn't think about adding to the edges of the image, you've certainly given me food for thought.
Thanks for the inspiration Jon. It was my first visit to Bolsover Castle where I was able to take a look around. I have been a couple of times before but was stuck inside a tent demonstrating woodturning for the Crafts Exhibition at the food fairs they held there.
