That`s a beautiful shot Joan, like everything about it. The young lady sitting down and just looking at the great building, plus a good sky too.

Wonderful image Joan!:clap:
Expertly composed, clever cropping, with terrific colours and a great sky too!
Couldn't fault it, even if I wanted to...which I don't!!:giggle:
Superb start to the challenge Joan, really looking forward to some more gems from you over the coming weeks/months!

So that's a selfie is it Joan? :)
How did you do it? Tripod, 10 second timer and run, or Tripod and mobile phone trigger?
As Jim say's you caught some nice light, and as others have said, good effective use of the letterbox crop (y)

It is a stone folly built in the late 1700s when pineapple growing was still a black art - although the pineapple was/is a symbol of good luck. Currently belongs to the NT and the buildings underneath and to the side can be rented in the summer. The stonework is fabulous and has been designed in such a way that water doesn't lie in any of the crevices and cause frost damage. They sure knew how to build back then.

Nice and colourful, bang on theme and decent sweets too (we've a couple of boxes of those we've been working through since Christmas :) ).
Quite shallow DoF, which I don't think it needed to be, but that's purely an artistic choice and doesn't hurt it either.
Gratz on getting week2 in first !

Pleasure. Great colours in this image and as a diabetic they are certainly a guilty pleasure for me too!
