I feel I must reply to this, because the Gothic Temple at Stowe was, as it happens, the very spot where I had my first experience with illegal substances. On a moonlit summer night, about 29 years ago, listening to The Clash. Or was it Echo and the Bunnymen? The general spookiness of the place is probably what put me off the said substances for life, so I have the Gothic Temple to thank for the fact that I am not living in a cardboard box under Blackfriars Bridge and eating cat food.
As to your photos, I think the development is fine but I have to say I don't like the composition of either of them. At all. I won't make suggestions but I think you have to decide between formalistic architectural style shots or funky wide-angly type shots with gnarly trees and big skies. These are neither.
Thanks for bringing back some memories.
