[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Walk out of Belstone village on the western side, go through the gate and out on to the moor, then make your way towards Belstone Tor. Near the base of the Tor you will see a stone circle or cairn erected to surround a round burial barrow from the Bronze Age, or kistvaen, as they are named on Dartmoor. On the Ordnance Survey Map the stone circle appears as Nine Stones, but it is more widely known as The Nine Maidens.

A beautiful capture with mythical positioning of the stones with well sharpness and nice management of light, Les!

The B/W treatment to the picture gives the work an exceptional look.
The POV and DOF are well done, and a thick-black frame suits well to the overall scene.

Nice composition all in all.

Best greetings,

Hi Les,
I like this composition and the panoramic frame but with regards PP work is not to that standard!
I wish I could have seen more contrast, there would have been more depth into the perspective and the sky would appear more dramatic.
The thick black frame is a little too overdone, a nice thin black margin would have suited more the presentation.
These are all my suggestions, maybe you agree/disagree!
My best wishes.

Nice use of the pano format. Conversely I like the thicker frame!

I do feel that a bit more contrast would be nice, especially in the lower half of the image. Nice view, interesting subject with good sharpness.
