blue sky and this palace looks good.
Bill Phillips: Kingston Lacy is a fine house
Really very cool Bill!
Bill Phillips: I like being cool.....doesn't happen very often wink

Very heroic, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It was supposed to be the opener to a series but like the music it rather petered out so I dropped the rest!

Delightful presentation, love both pictures!!
Love the composition.
Bill Phillips: You are just a very nice person Lady P smile
very dramatic to say the least, Bill! the mansion, imposing enough on its own, has been totally dominated
Bill Phillips: That was the idea Ayush so i'm pleased you think so

A haunting shot Bill, very Addams family, twiddled excellently smile
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha I like that!

I admire your treatment of this, it is very effective, turning as it does Kingston Lacy into something about the size of a matchbox
Bill Phillips: Man's feeble efforts put in context

The un-twiddled picture is alright too
Bill Phillips: Well the other one is twiddled but not as much

Your more twiddled version here sure gives this place a bombastic feel, Bill! smile

Something is trying to get out of you, Bill. Most impressive
Bill Phillips: What like in Alien?
I love the twiddled version very much Bill... you started out with a magnificent composition....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thank you Petersmile
Kingston Lacy will never be the same again. I suggest that you send the owners a copy of this ... It might encourage them to do some outdoor dramatic events when the over-egged homemade cakes in the tea room don't encourage the punters to hang around for long enough.
I like your overall presentation today Mr Phillips.
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you Sir Trim

The end of world is still threatening - but the nobility will further survive on their fine grounds - I personally like more the less twiddled version - an elegant manor house -and a noble name: Kingston Lace (in Norfolk?)!
Bill Phillips: Dorset Philine, near Wimbourne. A very fine house. I have some inside pictures which I will post after Christmas perhaps
That's not bad Sir, there is hope for you yet.
Bill Phillips: But sadly not much hope

lke the perspective! is this a fish eye lens?
Bill Phillips: No it was taken using a sigma 10-20 zoom which in old 35mm terms is about 15mm at its widest. A very good value for money lens

I've never seen Kingston lacy looking so small! That's an impressive sky.
Bill Phillips: compared to the sky it is Alan

I prefer your untwiddled version, though.
Bill Phillips: Less twiddled smile

Last Sunday I listened to Sir John Eliot Gardiner in the Philharmie Essen - he is a very charming musician who told about music and his life in excellent German - he has his home in the countryside of Dorset where he can recreate in the most relaxing way!
Bill Phillips: Dorset is one of my favourite counties Philine.
Complete set, Bill. Soundtrack history started here, brilliant post!
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Juan Carlos.
Great dramatic over the top twiddle Bill and the sound track goes with it perfectly.
Bill Phillips: well I felt like giving it a bit extra Janet grin

A touch of the ineffable about this Bill ;o)
Bill Phillips: Is that slightly better or slightly worse than interesting Mike ?
Wonderful Bill - is this with LightRoom?! Both are superb shots!
Bill Phillips: Primarily yes Martin.
I do prefer the untwiddled version, it frames the house better. With this one the house is hardly notices.
Bill Phillips: They both are twiddled but this is the Armageddon version
A dramatic composition. The sky has pushed the big house into the ground.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mary. I suppose that was the idea really
Excellent Bill, really love it.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Pauline i'm pleased you do

This is very dramatic Bill, do I detect the twiddling stick has come out of retirement?
Bill Phillips: I think i shall start to refer to it as enhancement

Bill Phillips: Thanks mate!
Most unusual, it didn't look like this when I was there in September. I'm doing an "ordinary" series on the place in the New Year.
Bill Phillips: I have got a few collages in the unassigned bin
Stunning sky in either case, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It was a rare nice day!

Very effective, what a wonderful sky
Bill Phillips: It was a rare sunny day this year!

Very dramatic, I like the other version also
Bill Phillips: That is for my more refined visitors John grin

Strange enough, I like the other one more. Not for the 'less twiddle' but that little bit extra foreground. That is a great composition.
Bill Phillips: The other was my original version before I threw the kitchen sink at it. I am inclined to agree with you
A fine dramatic capture Bill.
Bill Phillips: Cheers Fred
Great illustration of the end of the World which was supposed having happenned today at 12 hours 12 minutes and 12 seconds Bill!
Bill Phillips: I think I will predict the end of the world and get people to send me all their money as they won't need it any more
Impressive, but I'm definitely in the less twiddled camp, which is excellent.
Bill Phillips: Me too
