This is the companion shot to the one I put up on Sunday and, initially, I far preferred this one, but now I'm not so sure. What I like about this shot is that it's clean and simple with a relatively restricted and subdued colour palette, and for me this is a peaceful (for want of a better term) shot, but I now think that I probably prefer the previous shot.

In its favour, this one reminds me of some of my favourite of Russ Campbell's shots, such as Play, The Order, Shooting the Fuller, and Morning – all of which I've mentioned before (in relation to this shot), but this is the first time that I feel as though I've managed to capture this 'feel' myself. I'd be interested to see whether you think there is a similarity between this shot and Russ's ones that I've mentioned and, if so, how you'd describe the similarity.
