[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"if you can't beat them, then keep them out"

The Romans conquered Europe but couldn't conquer Scotland, so Emperor Hadrian decided to build a wall across the width of England to "separate the Romans from the Barbarians"

The wall was built 2000 yrs ago by the Roman Legionares and was 117kms long and was 5m high and 3-4 m wide. A lot of it is still standing

Nice low POV Jack and well composed with the wall leading to the horizon.

However, the f4 doesn't make for a very sharp photo. You've got lots of shutter speed to spare here so I would go f11 with this wider angle and use the principle of 'hyperfocal focusing' - ie focus about 1/3 of the way into the scene and f11 will give you good sharpness from very front to back.
