Comment left by: Andy Radcliffe (no e-mail specified) What I like is the contrast between the softness of the shadows which only really hint at branches or foliage, and the grittiness and texture of the stones in the wall.
I think the toning works well too in this case.

Comment left by: Winsor (no e-mail specified) Such a nice quietude about it that makes me jealous of people fortunate enough to grow up around things like old stone cottages.

Comment left by: Chris Barker (no e-mail specified) I like the simplicity of this shot, but the texture and light/dark make it most effective for me.

Comment left by: anonymous (no e-mail specified) Thanks for the comments. It is gratifying to see that the photograph communicates something of what I felt when I took it. The shadow in the sunset light had such a peacefulness about it that I just had to try to capture it.
It actually took a couple of days to realize that it was perfect for TOPE!
