Hannafore (Cornwall)

Hannafore (Cornwall)I'm not keen on the vignetting... very heavy, produces a claustrophobic feel. I'd back it off a little, I think that would improve it a lot. The vertical thing in the middle is also a tad distracting.

Celtic Carving

Celtic CarvingI disagree that it's too "soft" in terms of contrast, given that the tones on the stonework itself range from almost bright white to deep black. Increasing the contrast will simply lose some of the darkest or lightest tones through clipping.
The thing that jumps out at me is the right side of the top rim of the font. It's very dark, so that it merges with the background and the top edge of the font becomes indistinct. Maybe worth adjusting the exposure to capture that detail and then using a bit of selective dodging to keep it visible.
