Love the point of view, love the depth of field, love the composition. Love it, very emotive and in many ways very calming.

Love the composition today - great dof again Bill - I would have liked to have seen a slightly lighter version too - perhaps revealing a little more detail on the cross

V2 added as per Helen's suggestion: used Image>Adjustments>Variations in PS to make one grade lighter (I tried 2 grades but it was just too far) and dodged the shadow a bit.
I still prefer the mean & moody myself Wink

No disrespect to Helen but its V1 for me, darker seems to be more in keeping with the subject. - gary

What amazes me is how someone can pick something simple that people would normaly overlook, then photograph it and turn it into something worth looking it, great detail and B&W does it justice. Been looking at some of your machinery shots,, great work,,

Great image, Bill, and the super lighting really brings out the details on the cross. Think both versions work well, but after much toggling back and forth, think V1's my fave Wink

I always tend to go for the darker image - and here I can just see the detail in the shadows, so I'd therefore prefer v1. Love the composition and the mono.

V1 for me without a doubt, the longer and flatter tones are perfect for this type of image Bill. I love the depth too, just right with the 85mm and your settings.

Again the mono is so good for this image.
I like the close up detail and the blur on the bg.
V2 for me.

Very well composed and focused again, Bill. V2 for me 'cos V1 looks a wee bit too dark on my monitor.

Such a good lens.
