    Shot on the night of the Solstice, this was the first day of all the torrential rain the UK received over the following weeks. I went to try and catch a nice sunset but instead got rather wet.......

    I am sure I have posted others of this place...but just for those that hadn't seen them.
    Sycamore gap was used in several scenes throughout the Kevin Costner film "Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves" hence why some call it the Robin Hood Tree! A fantastic place on Hadrians Wall.

    I am not overly sure on this shot, maybe a little on the dark side for some and the vignette was an after thought...anyway would love to hear your thoughts.

    Wow, I am in love with this shot. I can't honestly think of a critique. Everything about this shot works for me.

    I agree on the darkness, I think if you just bring up the shadows and increase the contrast of them without hurting the highlights, you'll be golden. I like the vignette, it works.

    I love the composition of this shot, just perfect. I would try to lighten it in some way tough. See what it gives. Other than that, great shot!
