great idea and nice picture, the wall at the left hand side kinda leads me away from the main part of the picture. I probably would have cropped that out.

To me there is too much foreground it would be better if the walk went across the photo diagonally.

I like the way that the path really leads the eye to the monument, although that seems a bit too bright to me.

Nice leading lines to the subject and great sky but not enough emphasis on the subject.

Compositionally, if you have moved the path and subject over the the left it may have been better?

i SO wish the cone were sharp... This is nicely seen, and it's a good example of leading lines.

Leading lines or curves generally have two purposes. One is to lead the viewer into the scene. The other is to lead you toward the main subject. It is most effective if they come in from the lower left because that is the natural direction humans visually scan a picture so easiest to pick up.

The line leads nicely to the white structure but its small size and the fact that it is overexposed will not be much of a visual payoff for most voters.

Beautiful picture, I love the steps leading up to the monument, I think you chose jus the right balance of green grass and blue sky for this photo.

Seems to be a little bland. Maybe B&W will make it more dramatic?

I have no idea what 1066 Monument is other than your title says so. I like the picture a lot. I think the idea is a good one. Just wish you could see more of whatever the monument is to make more sense out of it.

I know the path is intended to be your leading line and that is nice, however, I don't really care for this angle for the monument. The position of the sun shines directly on it and overexposes it, therefore it looks like just a blob of bright white. You have nice clouds, though, so I think if the monument wasn't there, it would be a very nice picture. 6

The stone steps are really nice here, wish you had played a little with the colors though and more sharpness..
