[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi everyone, have been missing for about a week, pressures of work and family visiting so TL took a back seat.

I posted a photo of Stoney Cottage a while back and there are several derelict outbuildings on the site.

This is one of the sheds, I love to photgraph these old bulidings, I like to ponder on their history and what stories they might tell.

Thanks for looking.

nice prespective
good sharpness
good composition
well done

Hi Ralph,
A strong imgae using the low POV. Excellent contrast and brightness. Wonderful composition with the tree on the right hand side. A fine posting my friend!

Great effort with the dull lighting!! I like the low POV combined with the wide angle - works very well here.

Nice one.


Good shot. I like the subdued light, the mellow colours, the ruin and decay of the old barn. Dynamics work well.

Hello Ralph,

You must be producing a distinctive stile for I knew this was yours before I read the name.
Lovely sharp exposure and from an angle which works so well; from high to low, the building appears to be collapsing under our eyes!

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)

Hi Ralph,
Nice low PoV with good sharp detail and colours, this has a moody feel to it like the barn is going to breathe it's last sigh and collapse before our eyes. Best wishes

got to agree with the previous comments Ralph.

All round, a nice moody shot.
The light sympathizes the dilapidation of the wreck.

Good detail, good definition, good work,
