Exquisitely composed with the subject perfectly placed between the clouds and the grass. Great depth, detail and beautifully dappled light. A lovely image Ian. Hope you are well.

Dhaval from Princeton, United States

Wow.. So artistic! The path created by golden grass in foreground gracefully converges into castle and their similarity of color makes this convergence stronger. Clouds going away helps in making castle a center of attention. I'm so much impression with this picture. Good job.
