Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Stormy Sunset over Bamburgh Bay

Taken November 2015

Some say there should be more space to the right of the castle, but the ground there was flat and featureless so I reckoned it would detract from the overall drama, in addition I would have lost some of the Farne Islands on the horizon. What do folks think?

I understand what you are saying.

But the composition works well for me.

A very good, atmospheric shot.

Great image - Bamburgh Castle is central to Bernard Cornwall's books now called The Last Kingdom which can be seen on TV. Danes v Saxons plus a few Irish and Scots thrown in for good measure.
