I have been trying to take a decent photo of the Hole of Horcum for a while, but just cannot manage to depict the sheer scale of the place, or it's depth. Yorkshire legend has it that the geological feature was caused when a giant scooped up the land - amazing how many giants there were in England and how truly colossal they must have been....

Stunning photo Sara, makes me proud to be a Yorkie ;). We have some truly lovely places in Yorkshire and you really know how to capture them and this is another stunning example. The lighting is perfect. Serene, peaceful, colourful beauty.

I still think HDR creates too many phantoms, I've tried it on outdoor scenics and it always looks a little strange. The tree in the foreground is a good example of this, it's not quite matched up which gives it a very soft, unfocused appearance. Any slight movement will do this. HDR bracketed images must be totally stationary because any slight movement will create phantoms and no matter what they tell you, these cannot be aligned.
HDR works great for statonary interior shots with controlled lighting.

I do like the colors in your image and the great DOF.

Beautiful light Sara!

Although they catch the light beautifully, the foreground trees aren't adding much to this shot for me. As my eye moves through the scene it seems to always end at the foreground instead of deeper into the shot. Then again maybe I just have my "crazy hat" on.

the streaming light over the trees and hills really amplifies the whole feel of the image

i always think of these moors and very dark and foreboding - but this is so warm and rich - lovely

I've looked at this photo about three or four times now. For some reason, I'm really drawn to it. It looks like such an inviting place, and as others have mentioned, I love the warmth. Just beautiful...I don't see a single thing that I would change.

because you didn't put your PP on your photo and I have no idea what you did...I am going to suggest that you do more curves and levels, the colors seems to be a little dull...I really like the curve of the "creek???", field and angles of the shot...but it doesn't seem to pop with the color, then again...it is January...go figure...really like the spot. I am just guessing that if you want a shot similar to the "Hole of Horcum" you will need a wider angle lens...that will show the "depth of the Hole"

You got a nice leading line through your picture and the light is sweet.

Yorkshire's on my list of places to visit (once I'm done with Scotland).

Very interesting composition - a landscape without a sky! I love the colours and how the scene is divided in two by an s-curve.

I agree, love the warm tones. Very nice Image.

The warm natural tones are so inviting. I like the curved lines in juxtaposition with the scraggly trees. NICE.
