Bodiam Castle
Saw a picture of this a couple of weeks ago and thought it was chocolate box stuff. Decided to drive the 60 miles today and capture it. All the way there the sky was black and it was throwing it down with rain. I almost turned back, after getting stuck in a traffic jam. When I arrived it was still raining so had a coffee and waited. When I left the coffee shop the light was fantastic.

This is a beautifully angled shot Barrie, exploiting the light to the full, so nice I was expecting to see a little burning of the front tower and reflections in your editing, great stitchng wouldn't have known if you hadn't mentioned it, my usual gripe about a dead centre focal point, maybe a little too much vegetation round the frame, that apart its a lovely shot of an impressive building,

What can I say Barrie...Another stunner! Like you stated, the lighting is fantastic whilst I could use the same description for the composition, sharpness, colour and clarity. Great!

Even before I saw the name of the photogarpher I had a feeling it was one of your's, Barrie! A stonking shot very nicely framed by the trees and bushes. I love the reflection in the water and the cloud detail - well captured.
