    This would make an exquisite note card. Regardless of what is or isn't done with it, it's exquisite. Considering your expertise with toning, there are many toning treatments that could also work well.

    Having said that, I would crop it tighter on all sides just a little bit. The vignette leaves a little bit too much empty space for my taste.

    I agree that is a winner, but either a crop or less vignette if practicable.

    It is interesting how many photographers dislike negative space in a photograph. Some very dramatic images use this method of negative space however not many. It seems that most photography teachings, stress that the image has to be filled with something, when we have an image filled with nothing, the first thing we want to do is crop it out.
    So to me the only thing I might have done is to create a little more space at the bottom to balance out the amount at the top, this would cause the image to in my mind float and not be tired to the ground. Those are just my thoughts, I do love the image very much Sharon.

    Cheers:

    I like this as is, negetive space works well for me. Where the cloud ends and dream begins maybe... Well done, Sharon.

    Nice fairlyland type shot. Hanging castles in the air is what that is.

    I have never tried light vignettes. Maybe time to experiment.

    Yep, that'll do!

    I was just looking for the carriage and horses coming up the drive.
