Seeing Wisley from afar

Thank you for this chance for letting those of us "far away" have this glimpse of the alpine house at Wisley.Everything looks in grand order and I see that the autumn colours are as good in the south as they are in the north this year. Bumper year for fruits, too, of course. Re your first comment about "improve the perspective" on the long shots along the benches of the house..... This is a problem which vexes many of us when trying to capture such a view... say along the show benches, for example... have you any tips how to make a better result? Not that I find any fault in the existing shots, I merely wonder if you can sugggest a remedy? Best Wishes, Margaret
