I wish we had some snow to make landscapes a bit more interesting.
I like the second image more - I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think it's because my eye moves from left to right through the image along the wall.
Nice details in the stones and a good depth of field.
Good work Simon, the dry stone wall has some nice leading lines, drawing the viewer into the scene. I would be tempted to add just a little more contrast to bring out a bit more detail but that's personal taste. I do like the depth the image has.
I like the first shot the most, the growths and detail in the stone really add something, and I like the depth and leading lines in the second shot. I think I might have taken out a little of the sky in both of them though
Queen Anne's Monument, Cirencester Park, Gloucestershire
The monument stands in the grounds of Cirencester Park. It was erected in 1741 to her memory by the first Earl Bathurst, whom she had created Baron Bathurst in 1712. Queen Anne, who reigned over England, Scotland and Ireland from 1702 until her death in 1714.
Tall - it certainly is an impressive structure, possible loses some of the effect with the expanse of the ground leading up to it. Whilst zooming in I liked a composition where it was cropped from the bottom just below the main tree line with the statue positioned on the right.
Tall - good subject I think it would look better less central more on the third.
Snappers choice - The Salvation Army building is the most interesting of the two, both colour and b/w versions work but I prefer the colour
