This is a lovely shot. My only criticism would be that it doesn't seem to be framed quite right -- I would want to get the entire sign and entry roof gableat the right, the full gable at the top, and posibly lose the downspout on the left. So, if you moved up (or better, back -- so you wouldn't lose any of the botom, either) and right a smidge, you'd have it spot-on.

A tighter shot without the sign to the right or step back and include the whole building.

The shot itself looks good but not great due to the comp being a bit off.

Alex,

That's a very attractive scene. It makes me want to step inside for a noggin - and probably take them up on their offer & stay overnight!

My first thought, if you're looking for how to improve it, was that the picture makes the building appear to lean backwards a bit: but on the other hand it also gives me the impression that the street is on a slope & that we're looking uphill.

Ar any rate, here's my attempt to make everything look more vertical. But if the street does slope upwards, maybe I've made it look as if the street's entirely level?

Hi Herb yes the pub is on a very steep hill which is called mars hill, the whole village is built on the side of a mountain, with very steep roads eather side.

Thanks Alex
