    A derelict old beach hut stuck in the middle of the dunes at Bamburgh in Northumberland, UK. Got soaked by the large black cloud top left, just after I took this shot...

    James!
    Wow!
    Another of those wonderful photos! Lovely colours again!
    This one is much softer than the ones of the castles, and I am convinced you went for this aspect. Longer aperture?
    And hey, even though I feel sorry for your getting soaked by that big black cloud, I must say that it adds a great deal to this photo!

    I like this picture very much. if i have to nitpick, the abrupt blackness next to the house bothered me. otherwise it would have been perfect.

    That's lovely. I'm impressed by the featheryness of the grass while the house is still so crisp and the clouds don't seem blurred at all. That's a nice effect. The colors are rich and I like that they're distinct in their zones, each obect in the photo stands alone as an entity. The lighting is very nice as well. Great shot.

    Yes! I love the "fox eye" view. I am not a fan of the vertical format, but that can be overlooked in this case. Excellent job on the exposure.

    The Velvia or any film 100 ISO or under is something digi will have a hard time surpassing. I say print it 16x20; or in this case 20x16.

    I reckon its a ripper as well. I would have cropped a bit off the bottom is my only thought.
