Hi Sam You've used the portrait format well here, creates a real sense of depth to the scene. Well done Regards Stuart

Cheers Stuart, I actually shot a much wider multi frame landscape format scene but preferred this afterwards since the more interesting parts were predominantly to the left and I liked the way the stream, wall,shadow and rails all create a lovely lead in to the focal points in this crop.

best wishes, Sam

The sort of shot you can linger over .. lots for the eye to digest ... Like. BB

Cheers KC & Brian, I have to admit I'm quite pleased with this result.

Thanks lads.

Neil Grimwood on March 20, 2012

You managed to get some light on the subject then Sam!! Its lovely mate. I wasn't sure about the offshoot in that fence if you remember,but it works,as you say,its a nice lead in.Not to many cars parked either, oh yes,i thought there was a red sign somewhere;-))

Cheers Neil, just a pity we couldn't have had the same weather on the first visit. I'm delighted you agree re my thought process on the composition, though to be honest I wasn't expecting to use portrait format but as I mentioned that area bottom left was just too bare and lets a wider view down from this viewpoint. I have a wide one to come but it was taken nearer the bridge as you'll see when I add it. Yes that sign just had to be muted as it was a real distraction otherwise :o) Many thanks !

Cheers Ian as someone said when passing it's the cliche Helmsley shot but if something works well then why not ? Good light and careful positioning are the key mind :o).

best wishes, Sam

Andy Rodker on March 20, 2012

As you say, Sam, cliche or no, it's a great view and shot. Like. Best, Andy

Yorkshire Sam on March 20, 2012

As I often say I do try to come up with my own twist to scenes Andy but some are so right compositionally they just have to be repeated and in some way every shot taken will be different. I'm just pleased to share it and every positive comment is a bonus.

many thanks !

Very good photo! LIKE!

Greetings Z.

Yorkshire Sam on April 27, 2012

Zanot10,, this just goes to show what a clown you really are. Your own insecurities cause you to add your worthless copy and paste comments to images here on Panoramio in order to bring attention to yourself. The majority of people here on Panoramio are normal decent people fortunately and will of course out of politeness respond to your comments by way of adding something to one of your images which of course makes your actions seem worthwhile though regrettably will fuel your misbeliefs that the comments left are worth having. Well if all you want is to see your viewing and like figures rise then yes your adding such senseless comments around the site will get you that result. But think about it another way and you may see things differently... every hundred comments you leave won't generate 100 comments in return since there are those amongst Panoramio who like me realise what your game is and wouldn't normally respond, plus there are those who may not have time . So then let's assume you get back 90 replies which of course makes you believe your actions were worthwhile and superficially they will make your images appear very popular. Now in reality what you have done is given out more insincerity than you have received and this then means that your viewing and like statistics are less valuable than they were . It's like a government simply printing out more money when times get tough, it helps initially but the value of that currency just gets weakened. Out of pity for your losses I came and added ten of your own copy and paste comments to your 10 most recent pictures without really looking at them because I knew how much they would mean to you. Today I find you've given them back to me on my pictures and so I now must be a great photographer like you because I have lots of comments , I do hope you ticked the likes and didn't just say it ;o).

You know it makes no sense my little Panoramio friend but of course we both know you will continue to do it anyway :o)

best wishes, Sam
