Thanks early birds. Rod, the composition was very carefully considered, for the lines that I wanted to include and the distractions that I wanted to exclude. And I have been working very hard on my b&w, thanks for noticing!

Wonderful low key mono, the writings on the tankards with the light make a beautiful contrast and I love the inclusion of the inscription on the top box, Moira. A great compo!
Good tones with steely blacks ..the writing on the wall adds to this capture pleased you left it in.

What wonderfully shaped containers. I'm sure you must have mentioned it before, but I'm wondering what was stored in them.

As far as I am aware they are milk churns, and would be marked with the name of the station to which they were regularly delivered.
They are painted green, I found them much more attractive in b&w.
Cheers everyone,
