There's definitely been plenty of lockdown traffic through there. I might try a crop into the gate and puddle and a wee bit of straightening to lift it?

The signs should say 'park open as long as you can get through the mud'.
Dirty, dirty, dirty.

If i tried a pole dance around the gate post you can 100% guarantee i would fall face first into the muddy puddle and sod`s law there would be a audience to see it take place

I think you may have cropped a bit too tight there, but certainly anyone going through that gate is going to get dirty.

Week 3 Theme Rock / Stone.

Seem to struggle with this theme as well as the previous one.
I was hoping the snow would add something to the image of the wall, PABD is the phrase i believe :rolleyes:

I think the snow does indeed add to the image otherwise it would just be a lot of stones. It is very difficult to make stones interesting but this is as good an attempt as anyone's.

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.

Looks like a wall with lots of potential, might benefit from more contrast. I'm wondering what the image would with the wall straight ahead and some of the background would look like?

First for me - shame about the sky,, but not much you can do about that at the time.

The wall itself looks like a really interesting subject - lots of lichens and textures there.

I like the first ... close-up detail of snow/stone contrast.

Good leading line, lots of detail in the stonework.
Have you tried a black and white conversion, i think it might work.

Nicely shot bit of wall. I'm for black and white too as there's not a lot of colour there anyway.

Good shout for converting it to black and white, I hadn't considered that option

I like the first one with the close up on the moss and lichen

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

It's certainly tall! Not entirely sure we need so much of the grass in front?

Stone.. nice all and looks great with the snow. I would be tempted to convert to mono.

Tall.. that certainly fits the theme. I feel like I would move to the right a little and zoom in to get more of the statue and one tree behind.

I think you could lose a little off of the bottom. A nice pastel blue sky.

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.

I like all that FG and distant trees. The column is well exposed ... but what an outrageous thing to find in a sleepy Cotswold town!

Nice monument and very much on theme though the composition could be better

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

The colour version works for me too. It has more depth than the mono conversion.
