    Nicely composed, an arresting picture with that lighting.. And top marks for 1/6th second at 100mm - astonishing :-)

      A lovely ghostly looking image. Well done for the hand-held photo.

      Its a shame that humans dont come with autofocus, like cameras do!

        Well captured Martin, particularly given the conditions, I know the spot well (junction between A33 and the Causeway?)
        Well composed, you have caught the atmosphere well.

            Can't add much more to what has already been said except to say it's a ripper.
            It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.

                Very nice indeed, I wonder if a black & white treatment might enhance it more

                  Thanks to all for the kind comments, I won't pretend for a minute that I know what i am doing, this image was captured more by luck than judgment. None the less I am more than pleased with the result. For those that are interested here is a link to some history

                    Huw this is not the statue at Stratfield Saye house but is actualy in Aldershot behind the garrison church and can be seen from the A325 through gaps in the tree's. ATB Martin
