I like the composition Rob. All those diagonals give a sense of movement, but the house anchors it nicely.

i'm glad to hear that keith,i thought maybe it is a bit to much,the tree,the bike and the poles all leaning the same way...
but it does indeed give movement.
it's not easy taking everything into consideration on location.

What I like is the sense of wind, alongside the emerging colour, that is typical of the seasonal change. I am beginning to think that your current mode of operation is givng us an accurate feeling of the way that the conditons change over the year.

I like this, Rob! It has so much movement--the clouds, the windblown trees, the biker. I get the "feel" of the place.
