One / 103

Here’s one I spotted at Hovdala Slott…. However, I should have taken this shot a bit earlier….as the person’s head is a bit ‘caught up’ visually in the wall beyond. But, in reality I wasn’t there at the right time!

Sometime, I intend to look back at some of my past ‘One’ shots, and see how many my inner critic thinks could have/should have been better!!

Through the arch

There is actually something else I had to do with this image compositionally…any ideas??



  1. I see what you mean about the stonework looking like it is on their head, Sue. But I doubt I would have paid much attention if you hadn’t mentioned it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. As you ask, I’d have compositionally placed something in the left middle ground — but then, beggars can’t be choosers and as you say it’s a question of being in the right place at the right time!
    But I like the way the path leads off to the right, leaving the viewer in suspense over what’s round the corner. (Perhaps edit out the fork in the footpath?!)

      As you say, beggars can’t be choosers….and a good point about losing the fork in the path. I’ll see if anyone comes up with anything else…..

    I agree with beetleypete. The head wouldn’t have bothered me if you hadn’t mentioned it. In fact, on first glance nothing about this image bothered me. But with Calmgrove’s comment and your response, I now see some kind of vehicle (?) peeking around the archway. I might try to edit that out along with the fork in the path to make the shot just a bit cleaner.

  4. and what does the red sign say! 🙂 I like the image but I like views through arches and doorways!

  5. Well I like it as it is.

  6. No cutting out of forks and mystery items. You’d lose the arch. Unless – and there no doubt is – there’s a method other than cropping.
