Hi Werner

Good use of the fg structures, to frame the bg scene, in this superb b&w image. Excellent sharpness, shallow dof/focus, layering in the compo, light contrasts & tonal range. Maybe I'd burn in the slightly oe highlights? Tfs!

Hi Werner, this is an excellent capture with much mood.
Very creative work

Hi Werner,
Interesting POV, you've composed the statue nicely. I agree with Chris about the OE spots, but it's sort of inevitable when shooting against the morning sun. Probably not so noticeable in the original version, the B&W conversion seems to accentuate these things sometimes.


Hi Werner
good pov and black and white in this one
I like the contrast of the statue and
the sharp
have good week end
