[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the parterres at the Hampton Mansion. It takes a lot of gardeners to maintain several of these.

I climbed to the highest vantage point I could find for this shot, but the hill wasn’t as high as I would have liked. To read more about garden parterres: Wikipedia - Parterres

PP worK:

Boosted contrast +15
Used dodge/burn to bring out the details in some dark areas.
Even with the CP filter, the skies were washed out, so I colorized slightly for the blue.

Thanks for viewing!

Best regards.

Hi Werner,
Nice vantage point! Such an interesting looking garden, definitely wouldn't look the same from ground-level. Very natural colours and tones in this shot, the garden looks strategically planted too. Great capture.


Ciao Werner, great view of splendid garden with fantastic design, wonderful light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Interesting shot and note. O played around with a perspective control on Paint shop pro and did a workshop (not good result but it does show the design quite clearly)
warm regards
