On the cliff top.
Roedean school for girls stands alone on the cliff tops in 40 acres of grounds.
Built in 1898 by three religious sisters, who at the time considered it far enough out of town to
isolate the young ladies from the sinfull distractions of Brighton, the some miles to the West.

nice shot, shame the subject looks a little soft (mind that could be my work monitor)

Excellent, love the cliffs wandering off into the distance and the grey buildings caught betwixt blue cloud-streaked sky and the cliffs and sea.

Nice and peacefull and well isolated.

To me the cliffs are so bright that the building is pushed into second place, which, in this case, defeats the object. However, as a composition it is very good.

An isolated school, but unfortunately not isolated in the image. Even though, it's an interesting interpretation of the assignment.

Good shot like the open feel to it but no isolation of the subject

A pleasant composition but perhaps a little too colourful to convey 'Isolation.'

Nicely done but there isn't the isolation

Love this shot but sorry not enough isolation for me

Almost hits the sweet spot for me, John. It's obviously isolated, really isolated, at the front and sides but not seeing it isolated at the rear takes away some of the punch. I agree with Barrie about the over-brightness of the cliff face detracting a little from the real subject.

Great shot. And I agree it would be nice if the subject was brighter than the rest of the picture, but I think this also works. Bright sky, bright cliffs, and bright reflections on the water, makes the darker subject standout, but in an ominous sort of way.

Like the shot the saturation and balance work well... It may not be pin sharp but but it doesn't need to be... I have to agree with Tripod with all those roof tops it just doesn't look isolated enough for me... Still... a good shot all the same.
