Challenge: Fall Foliage 2015 (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D3100
Lens: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G DX VR
Location: Stourhead, Wiltshire
Date: Oct 31, 2015
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/160
Date Uploaded: Nov 8, 2015

Taken at Stourhead in Wiltshire, a local stately home owned by the National Trust. The shadows started to lengthen but was able to catch this. Interested to know if the rotation worked or not- I saw a bottle with champagne/flowers but others might just see a blur.... I also had some with ducks but though the reflection distracting; again wonder if wildlife would have added interest or not..

Hello from the Critique club

An interesting image that meets the challenge

Well, I have to commend you for attempting to inject some originality into the presentation of your entry but I'm sorry, it doesn't work for me. Also attention to the small details is always crucial, your rotation is not level it is leaning to the right and symmetry is important here, your crop is not equal left to right. Having said all that I do acknowledge and welcome your creative vision in looking and seeing beyond the norm that you have before you. You ask if the inclusion of wildlife would have enhanced it, in my opinion, yes it would if it were a normal presentation but in this form, no, I think it would have been a distraction. For this image to work at its best you need a very strict symmetry throughout.

Well done for your originality
