Great light and shades in Eastby Abbey. Well lit windows are spot on.

Grass is better this way ... :)

I am loving B&W more and more with my a7r. I've posted these links in the NEX section so here they are again from our recent trip to NYC.

Some great stuff here but no one has posted for a while, I thought I'd have a go at a re-boot

I like the first as the bride and groom are well posed, unfortunately the background is not really conducive to making a good wedding photo. So the second or last it must be. The last has difficult lighting, so you did well to capture it as you did. All are very good actually.

I agree with Charles's comments but second one for me.  My only niggle is the end of the glass panel on the right- the line is distracting. You cannot crop it though (unless you move the coffee cup a little :grin: )

thanks AScot and chappo1, 'appreciate the feedback, the bride in the first shot is my daughter, (proud dad alert) I caught this while photographer was setting up his shot, I don't know how his turned out because my daughter only showed us the ones that she liked, AScot, I cannot tell a lie, I used a fair bit of creative dodging and burning to help out the difficult lighting in the last one ;) I was tempted to leave the superman symbol in colour but not really fussed on that effect, and that coffee cup :( what can I say :)

First one- Almost too much to look at here.
To me there are two images here crop to just above the arch and have the juxtaposition of trees and buildings plus then crop just above the top of the bridge and put a person/dog/ just beyond the arch.

second one
Nice use of light and shade- good use of mono

Third one
I can see what you are trying to achieve with blend of new and old but for me the curved one is too dominant.

4- I like it lots.  Best one and the solitary figure conveys loneliness to me

5 would be better if the figure was closer in the foreground but otherwise well seen

thanks John, it's nice to hear how another photographer sees your work, the forth image was captured through a bus window, he looked just as lonely in real life.

cheers, Mark
