There is a thing in photography that pictures need to have impact, or perhaps that’s IMPACT.

It’s probably especially true when one’s picture is in an endless stream passing through Instagram, Facebook or wherever on the web.

I think this picture does not have impact; you may not even have seen Beeston Castle rising through the mist. The sun’s only just coming up so it hasn’t touched the mist yet, unlike the picture of Peckforton in the previous post. But I still like the picture a lot; it’s subtle. If you look closely you can see not only the castle but also the first glimmer of sunlight at the top right; I could have flooded the whole picture with dawn orange but that would erase the delicacy I think?
