After the shot yesterday I went back to see if I could get a better one with nicer light and sort out the background. The light was better to an extent but as the building is in a valley the lower section was now in shadow, however I think the overall result is better. I used an ND grad filter to help with the sky. What do you think of the results?

Agreed that today's post is a nicer result. I especially like the second one and the eye is lead from front to back of the photo, but the subject is obviously the building. Looking again I really like both shots--the side lighting is great.

yes Mark a better composition and i dont mind the shadow one bit, it addsintrest,

I see that you took it at1.20 pm, it would have been nice to see all the shadow of the building on the ground and see where it went too. Can i suggest you try it with the sun on the left (sun rise) at the same angle as #1 and the shadow running into the rough on the right, it might also give higher contrast to the building,see if that works better. But what do i know.

Thanks.

Ooops, it looks like the camera reset the time (don't know why as there was always one battery in it), I actually took these at 7.30pm

LOL. It is a pain and will remind me that I need to check the time on the camera before a shoot. Especially now that I'm using 2 bodies so like them to give the same time so I can sort by time to get shots in the correct order. Another lesson learnt.

nice light, i gather you are in summer, we are a day off the start of winter, but still getting good light up until 4.30 pm. I never looked at the other shots but these are very nice.
