What do you see?
Broadway Tower is a folly located on Broadway Hill, near the village of Broadway, in the English county of Worcestershire.
The following added after John (Tyro) asked about the car in the foreground.
The Jaguar C-Type (also called the Jaguar XK120-C) is a racing sports car built by Jaguar and sold from 1951 to 1953. The "C" designation stood for "competition".
The car used the running gear of the contemporary XK120 in a lightweight tubular frame and aerodynamic aluminium body. A total of 53 C-Types were built. When new, the car sold for about $6,000, approximately twice the price of an XK120. In an article in the June 11, 2003 issue of Autocar magazine ("Slick Cat Jaguar", p. 70) the value of a "genuine, healthy" C-Type is estimated as £400,000

You are right everything it is on the picture...but there is too good taste, great definition and composition and a good eye to discover the moments and its values...Brilliant work!
Have a nice day...

Your note is very telling in the light of the expressions on the faces of the couple passing by. Excellent composition with a story to tell. Very well framed amd with superb colours and clarity.

Crikey, Just look at those gorgeous curves and that`s just the man`s beer belly!
The inclusion of the couple does add a great deal of charm and interest to a nicely composed shot with the gleaming cars very well illustrated.
All the best,

An interesting note in which I've counted twenty five things I can see - including the Seven Deadly Sins!
This is a delightful photograph showing the lovely parkland, some people at play, the couple admiring the cars, but with the gleaming coachwork of these beautiful cars taking pride of place in the foreground.
Is that a 1950s Jaguar "C-type" nearest to the camera? I suspect it might be and that the next one is the more commonly seen "E-type".
Beautiful vibrant and rich colours, lovely light, fine composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

I do lust after the British racing green classical Jaguar, the color we Colonists call it. I had this color 67 MGB in my youth, and goofed by selling it.
I think Jaguar should repeat its classical XKE body design today, they would find many buyers, including me. Dodge did this today by mimicking their early 70s Challenger body. And a bonus with putting their new Hemi engine in it, which makes it the fastest American car.
Thanks for sharing,
