Helm's Deep [In reply to] Can't Post

Any thoughts on the balance in this shot? How does the light and dark clash? What emotions does it invoke in you?

We get an outward view from inside the 'Helm' as the sun moves further towards the west. This would probably be a 3.00pm view when the shadows are beginning to lengthen and form in the hills beyond. The people in the foreground look calm enough but the lighting and the flock of crows in flight does invoke a sense of edginess.

Does Helm's Deep really come across as a stronghold here in contrast with the surroundings? (note the size/location of mountains, the crows, etc.)

It does. The presense of a few soldiers on the battlements make this obvious.
