A nice image. I would call it painterly, and the OP tells us he is a painter. If the image were a painting nobody would be concerned about the shadows or whether Dartmoor ever looked like that - we would go straight for the formal and emotional qualities of the image, both strong. Because it is a photograph those issues did come up - for Chairman Bill it would seem, and for me too. I found myself wondering exactly what condition of light was being represented. But I let that thought go quite quickly.

I guess I tend to look at photographs in much the same way I look at paintings. For me, a camera is a tool that helps to produce an image. I, too, found the mood of the original photo very powerful, and I wasn't bothered by the shadows.
