Tremendous use of this very good lens and it's wide aperture. Love the curves repeating, maybe a little more light left in the highlights of the curved railing.

Lovely monochrome work with lots of long tones.

A good but painful looking shot !!

Went there today but it was for Tribunal training so I didn't get to see these. Thanks for alerting me to their presence for the next time I visit.
