This is a great study of concentration. You can just about make out what he is working on but that's not really the point. He's obviously at a critical point of the process. The close attention to the chisel, and the curve round through eyes, neck muscle, shoulder, arm, elbow tucked in to increase control, hand and chisel is well portrayed. It makes you feel the controlled power he's using. It doesn't work in colour so well because we get distracted by his thinning hair and other information that's not essential to the story of concentration. A nice complex image to make you think!
Nice shapes on the bench, caught the warmth well. I think you might get some mileage from borrowing the lens hood as well(!) or shield the lens with your hand a bit. You could also think about getting in closer with that big lens for the detail on the end of the bench and letting the background blur a bit? Er, some garden!!
I've come back to this a few times because you're trying to do stuff I would like to do too!
A good take on the usual shot taken lying down on the bridge! Had to look twice to see wht you'd done. I think the point about this IS the symmetry - without it, it wouldn't be half as fun.
Good changes! Instead of desaturating, you might want to experiment with the white balance setting on your 350d - looks like you might have it set to daylight or auto, and you may be shooting with the aid of a normal lightbulb.
Wild place! It'd be hard enough taking pictures without thinking about exposure and filters and things.... This shot looks quite difficult: loads of bright background and a very dark foreground.
Loads of interesting detail in this picture - bet it looks stunning projected.
What I like about this shot is the way the eye is drawn along the brighter water to the abbey, and the detail in the cloud bottom left.
It's a nice idea and reflections are always a good bet for some thing interesting. I do like the symmetrical arrangement of land and mirror image, and I like the way you've caught the faint ripple in the water so the edge of the reflections is broken up a bit.
Lovely panoramic shot. I like the colours and the reflections.
