About the Image(s)

Fountains Abbey is a ruined Cistercian monastery which was founded in 1132 by 13 Benedictine monks, who became Cistercian three years later and grew the abbey until it was closed by Henry VIII in 1539 when he dissolved all monasteries. It is now a world heritage site

Great image of the monastery ruins. I wonder what some of todays buildings might be like after 900 years of being abandoned. I like the tree on the right and all the nice color.   Posted: 03/09/2023 19:38:17

Nice image with good depth. There is no window violation. The image is sharp and has good lighting. I liked the composition too. Well done.   Posted: 03/22/2023 02:37:46

Very nice. I might have boosted the color saturation, but that's just my taste. It works well as it is.   Posted: 03/25/2023 12:20:42

Good sharp shot. I think it could use a broader inter-ocular to give it better stereo depth.   Posted: 03/26/2023 15:47:01

I like the history you share with us on many of your images. This is a nice, sharp image of the ruins with leaf-less trees that add "mood" to the ruins. I also like the higher foreground to give just a slightly different plane to the scene. What area of England is this?   Posted: 03/28/2023 19:48:53
