Hi folks, and and thank-you to everyone that participated. I found this photo tricky to PP. The sloping grass at the front made framing a little difficult. It’s as if I should have shot this one in portrait mode instead of landscape. The gold styled paintwork can get a bit overpowering and the sky can become a little distracting. But…

2nd runner up - I couldn’t decide between RobD’s entry and Lyles colour entry, so I’ll give it to Lyle for getting rid of the distracting branches on the mid-right of the image. Both very natural looking images.

Runner up is @Hendriks' 2nd B/W entry. Very nice. It deals with the distractions nicely through the soft tones.

And winner is @wee-pics! I liked the flatter aspect ratio. The building filled the frame more and together with being B/W there appeared to be less competition from the sky for attention while having some nice lighting.

So it’s over to @wee-pics for challenge #52!
