I think you had the right frame of mind while taking this. I love the aspect of nature tied in with the old stonework of the building. I feel that the impact is lost by the bush on the left. I would love to see more of the building, get in a little closer and leave out a little more nature. Nature as a frame is wonderful, but in this instance your frame is overwhelming your subject. Either back up or get in closer. Otherwise the building itself has so much character that it was a perfect candidate for your subject. The lighting, texture, and feel of the area are perfect. It does draw me in and make me want to walk through that arch. I just want to walk into your picture and move past that big bush on the left. All in all, I think it's a great piece and you have a great eye for art: I know you will have great things to come.
