Haigh Hall in the early evening light


Haigh Hall in the early evening light
I used a fast shutter speed to kill the glare of the low evening sun and to get a silhouette effect.

.....and used it to good effect, a nice nostalgic picture, with an air of mysticism to it.

Great picture Janice. Has a sinister edge to it.

Janice, I put your photo in Windows Photo Gallery and adjusted the brightness a touch, just to see the windows.
Did you have a look at the crazy golf? Was it open to have some practice !

Thanks for the kind comments folks. This was the first time I had tried this type of shot and I was quite pleased with it. I am not sure where the crazy golf is Ernest and I did not notice any signs to it - but they were probably under my nose. Can't wait for the big competition!
