Mark, this is a lovely shot. I was just wondering what happened to the rest of the Abbey behind the beautiful facade?

Beautiful framing Mark. Can I ask you about the dof? When using trees/shrubs etc for framing, is it best to have the foreground slightly out of focus so that it doesn't distract from the main subject. Are there any rules on this?

Nice work on this one Mark. I love the patterns in the brick. Nicely captured.

Hi Kaye and thank you for your comments.
What happened to the rest of the abbey and others up and down the UK
was the reformation, a guy called Henry VIII is at fault that they all are in ruins.
Hi Denise and thank you for your comments.
Being as close to the foreground trees will naturally blur, but in general I like to
Use the DOF in this way, the eye bypasses the out of focus part and leads you in to the photo.
You can go either way its personal preference, but I like to use DOF in this way.
Hi Joseph and again thank you for your comments.
The red sandstone at the front had a similar colour to some of the rust colour leaves.
Took some standing under the archways, and pointing straight up which looked quite good.

Wonderful capture, Mark...your framing is perfect and the exposure seems to be right on.

I really like how the tree branches actually form a frame around the photo. I think this photo is beautiful.
