Hello Colin - I was born not far from Stratford and my sister lives there now so I am very familiar with this location. I am amazed you managed to get a shot with very few tourists in it! Your composition with the distinctive flower baskets and oblique angle is good and the light is super. I do like the stormy sky, it adds such atmosphere. TFS this, it beings back such good memories for me. Warm regards Rosemary
