Post: Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments. 60 comments one on shot is a record for me :-)

This shot was an out-take from my ribbon-winning Wealth Shot last October.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/936/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_732762.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/936/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_732762.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I actually prefer this shot to the one I won a ribbon with, but I couldn't get it to come out right in basic so I went with the other shot. Possibly a correct decision in hindsight :-)

nicely observed, but looks a little flat.

Great shot. The placement of the manor, offset by the tree, with wonderful clouds floating by.

Postcard quality. Gorgeous.

nice capture, I'd have been tempted to crop more tightly on the rhs, and to lose a little from the top too

Wonderful composition. The cloud capping the tree is just perfect. I love the way the clouds lead me to that tiny hovel of home. Very well done.8

very impressive place and and excellent picture of it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:05:02 PM
I loved that show! Still watch the reruns. Crisp, clear, just not sure about the crop, feels like a little to much on the right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 05:27:53 AM
good background of clouds in the capture, 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice combination of colors and the shadows add to it. It could be darker.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 06:20:05 PM
Very pristine. The diagonal drift of the clouds really frames the shot nicely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 05:52:21 PM
This is beautiful.....must be England. You had a perfect sky for it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 03:57:27 PM
Hm. Maybe a little tighter crop from the right is all I can think of. Right at the edge of the big tree. Nice tones/colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:34:22 AM

The clouds provide a wonderful leading line that draws the eye right into your subject. Nicely lit and well seen.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 04:40:45 PM
Very stately. The cloud adds volumes. Might have cropped a little more of the sky out but still a nice shot.

This is picture postcard stuff - nice shot. Just a little too much blue sky? Maybe a little tighter crop?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:53:52 AM
Hmm, this one looks familiar. Where's the guy in the guitar?
