Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Re: bench

Oh wow! Great spotting that effect! Must be one helluva big bench I would've worked the subject dry with dozens of 'takes'!! One would've been with bench seat closer to eye level to get the grain of wood bigger. But its a great piece! May I suggest you crop the pic more

Re: bench

Great shot, I love the way the eye follows the bench round.

Nice job!

Re: bench

I didn't read the title at first and thought it was a shot of some tram/railway lines at first!
Great shot, a cracking spot with the wet wood!

Re: bench

Nice photo John. Nice angle too.
I like B&W photos like these with dark intense shadows and some mixed light scattered in the foreground and background.

Re: bench

Nice eye leading shot and I like the mono effect. I would be tempted to clone out, or crop out, the car over on the right.

Re: bench

Excellent composition, crop slightly from the right, and a little bright, be spot on.
