I like the overall composition you went for. It feels on the dark side, particularly based on the clouds. I would be inclined to clone out the broken wood piece in the lower left and the leaning branch that touches the tower (just to the point of getting it clear of the tower). Dodging the clock, or possibly the top of the tower and clock to make it a bit firmer as the anchor point might also be worthwhile.   Posted: 05/08/2022 19:27:59

Tom, Interesting subject of this historical fort. I noticed the branch merging onto the tower. It appears you were close to the wall from where you were standing as it may have been difficult to reduce this intrusion. The walls and tower look good with the woods and structure providing a good composition. Rick mentioned the clock and upper tower have additional clarity that I would agree with.   Posted: 05/09/2022 18:24:06
