Very frustating, living in one of the most beautiful places in the UK and not being able to photograph a nice landscape due to rain, fog and rain. Only the morning of the last day before rollover we had only a few hours of sunshine, barely enough to grab my camera and drive to the more interesting parts of the island, so I decided to just take a snapshot of my backyard, beautiful as it is!

Not a bad backyard. Perhaps you could try to crop out more of the sky to put more emphasis on this very interesting landscape?

Wonderful shot, my only critique is that the contrast in the bush on the right is a bit extreme, the edges of the shadows on those branches are sharp!

A well composed landscape but with nothing much else to recommend it. A harsh judgement I know, but even allowing for the fact that most landscapes are boring and passive, this one is still resolutely limp and lacking in any hint of originality. Can you really be satisfied to do nothing more than what so many have, alas, done before? It's a safe landscape, ticks most of the landscape boxes, but they're all empty. 5.

You are very lucky to have a backyard like that. Wonderfully captured too.
