That's much better Helen, even I can see that, the blue in the sky, and the greens are improved. I have tried flicking between the images to compare them, and this is a big improvement.
As said a great POV and some excellent detail, and now all the colour tones are there to enjoy, so well done.

Much better Helen, well worth the re edit, I like it even more now

Thank you both for your comments. You can take the thin steps that twist around to the top Jeffrey or you can walk up a hill to get to the point where I took this photo. It certainly is a lovely place to visit when all the Rhododendrons are out, & there are also lots of different paths to explore.

Was going to mention about the colour cast but beaten to it
Much, much better now Helen.
You've certainly done the old house proud here, the lush greenery and lovely flowers, a gorgeous vista and the two seated GU adding a nice touch of scale.
Very well done luv it.

Thank you George, after I put it on the gallery I was looking at it myself & thinking that something wasn't quite right, but wasn't sure what it was until Peter who had mentioned it.

Beautiful picture Helen, where is Craigside?
Helen  [Jun 15, 2014 at 09:21 PM]
Thank you for your comment Frank. Cragside is near Rothbury in Northumberland.

Thanks Helen, a bit out of the way then unfortunately, but placed within my ever diminishing memory banks.

Apologies for being late on this Helen - it's gorgeous, I love it! Love all the detail and the forest around it - Don't know what the rest looks like but from what I can see, would Love to live there! Idyllic !

Thank you Barbara for the comment. There is a Six mild Estate drive & various paths to explore. At this time of year the estate is covered in Rhododendrons & is beautiful.

I've only once had the pleasure of going here and that was at night! They light light the building and gardens in November for about a week,. Now I see that I must go back during daylight hours as it looks delightful. The first house to be lit by hydro electricity, I believe. I like your viewpoint here with the edging of rhododendrons.
Helen  [Jun 20, 2014 at 08:48 PM]
Thank you Alan for your comment. We went also when they had the house illuminated & some of the grounds. Yes it was the first house to be lit by Hydro electric power & was the country house of Lord Armstrong.
