    Thanks DM.

    It's a great place, there are a lot of sculptures dotted around the park and in the galleries. I actually took a bucket load if shots and felt these worked the best. As soon as I can I might put up some others.

    Nice composition on the statue shot and great low-key effect on the flower photo. :tup:

    Great shots overall. I wanted to highlight one of my favorites out of the photos in your sets.

    This photo for some reason just makes me interested. Maybe if it was colored and a little more exposed I'd be alot more excited. Just one that I was interested in. Like I said, great shots overall.

    Also, you and Diabolical only updating your galleries makes me sad. It feels like a ghost town here in the photography section. Keep delivering though.

    Forgot to mention that. Looks great.

    Thanks. I gave a colour version of that shot of my foot. I shoot colour and B&W at the same time. I will dig it out.

    It is a shame about the threads not being updated regularly. DM is great because he gives us an interesting shot every day. I've noticed that more of the premium members post in the infield thread instead of here.

    The balance in this one 'tween its two elements is great. I'd maybe like a more radical post-pro, and it's rare that I say this. Pretty cool :tup:

    That's so much better, I just found it hard to identify what the surroundings were.

    I needed a fresh wallpaper so I decided to use that if that's okay with you.

    No problem.

    I think I decided to treat the image to an under exposed post process is for the solitue of the shoot. I was by myself stood on the edge of a flooded open cast sandstone quarry. Only living things close were ducks and people whizzing past 30 foot above me to the back on the M1 motorway. It was overcast so I felt the need to express that in the original image.

    I very much like the flower in post 64, the strong pink petals are great against the dark surroundings.

    I like the top one. It's confusing but once you put together it looks nicer.

    That is a very nice set. The first two are my favourites.

    But I also really enjoyed the bw conversions (with the dark skies) and both panoramas are very interesting as well.

    Thanks.

    I want some ND filters now so when it's sunny like this weekend I can do some wide open long shutter shots. I've some interesting ideas about trees and long shutters.

    The second shot in post 70 is so wonderfully peaceful.

    I like shot #10 in the latest set. The rest are clean in composure too.

    Not so much new pics but new/old kit.

    Helios 44-M 58mm F2.8 Lens. It's like new condition but the focus is stiff. I think I need to re-grease it.

    And my Voigtlander Vito CSR range finder has arrived.

    Very excited to see photos from the Voigtlander! Is it in full working condition?

    It is. Just need a battery for the light meter (don't really need it, but I want to see how it works)

    I'm going to put some Illford 400 throught it. That way I can compare the Zorki and Voigtlander.

    Hey, that shutter button on the Vito looks familiar...... My Ultramatic (not working, unfortunately, but the source of the lenses and adapters used in my macro/close-up shot in that bi-weekly comp.)

    It seems they like to dip in to the parts bin for thier cameras. Unfortunately the lens isn't detachable, but I can see this being a sleeper street can as its very quiet.
