Very beautiful B/W and Sepia landscape where the textures of the green plant are very well made. I would have faded somewhat the sharpening of the stonewall  which in my eyes has been overdone. 

Wolfgang Arnold

many thanks for your constructive comment on this (so far neglected ;-)) photo. You have a point concerning sharpness of the wall - my intention was to emphasize the wall (as opposed to the 'sea' of shrubbery it's cutting through) - but looking at my photo conciously after some time, I'd agree to your proposal.

Best regards, Wolfgang

Wolfgang Arnold
Stonewall Lighting (low sun, cloudy) was difficult and original has rather flat and dark plants in the foreground. I went through several steps of sharpening (the wall) and adjusting tonal values of green to get more 'texture' to foreground and wall.
