In my last post, I shared the first few frames from a recent shoot at Hoddom Castle, my first successful IR jaunt here, ever. If you read the first in this series you may remember that I asked anyone who has time, to please let me know in the comments section of each post, their favourite one shot, so that I can put together a trilogy of frames which I am going to gift to the estate upon which Hoddom Castle stands. So, here are the second three frames from which I would like to hear your opinions and choice. Of course there will be one more post to come in due course so please do watch this space. I really am grateful for your input and you will save me a small headache for not having to choose, myself. 

Thank you so much for reading and please, any and all comments are welcome, below.

    1. My pleasure, Rob! As you might have noted, I’m still on FB but inactive at all. I hate Mark Zuckerberg and his network. It looks like a trash bin now. Have a wonderful Sunday! 😊


  1. Consistency…Shadows Before Light II. All three work well, but being a bit picky the tilt on the left of numbers one and two distract me. And staying with the consistency, I’d crop a touch from the left in this also to rid the frame of the partial tree.

    1. Thank you, Steve! Yup, the slight tilts in IV & VI were basically down to wide angle but I do like them. And yes, I’m actually quite surprised I left that half tree in! Thanks for your input as always, my friend and have a great week ahead! Best, R. 🙏📷

    1. Thank you so much for your comments, Steven. I’m going to simply go with everyone’s votes but yes, I can see where you’re coming from. One more selection to come and that’ll be the three decided. I’ll try to make it easier! Hope you have a great week ahead and thanks again. Appreciate it! Best, Rob 🙏📷
