[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Arlington Court is an unexpected jewel on the edge of Exmoor, a complete family estate held by the Chichester family for over five hundred years. The collection consists of treasures for all tastes, from model ships to shells, all collected by the Chichesters’ over several generations. The house itself, built in 1823 and extended in 1860, has an austere facade.

The tranquil estate with over 20 miles of footpaths is abundant with wildlife including an ancient heronry. Two species of bat roost in the cellars of the house whilst the bird hide is a quiet space to view nature at its best.

Converted to black/white tones and then a sepia filter applied.

Ciao Steve, lovely composition with fashinating interior, splendid light and wonderful clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Beautiful architecture but bats in the cellars? I like the ornate columns and iron works. This being an old building I agree B&W is more appropriate. Well done, tfs.

Salut Steve,
une image douce et très rétro , le rendu sépia est excellent

Hello Steve, this is somewhere I have been meaning to visit.
The soft sepia tones are perfect for this shot.
Your PoV creates interest right through the picture.
Well managed light as I can see some lamps lit.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Steve
Beautifully composed and the B/W treatment works really well.

Hi Steve,
a nice sharp image with excellent PP work

Hi Steve,
Wonderful aging process applied to this photo. It has a very warm feeling. Very well conceived and executed.
I also love the POV on the stairwell. Very nice indeed!

Hello Steve

Like the pov and the sharpness. Not so sure about the OE behind the stairs on the far wall. A little distracting.

Hi Steve
Beautiful shot with great light and excellent sharpness. The pp work is very very good. The vertical crop is perfect.

your work on BW and sepia give a beautifull great atmosphere to that large staircase; very british( !)

A stunning image. Gives the impression of a picture having been taken in the late 1800s.
