Paul its a great subject, and I can see the reseblance of a Henry Moore / Barbera Hepworth sculpture. Im privaledged to live down the road to oneof the largest collections of their work.

I guess I think you know whats coming, there is a but. IMHO you have pushed the light areas a bit far, they have gone to almost white, and you have lost detail (I'm sure in camera it was perfectly exposed) I can see you were looking for a graphic image, and may have worked if the white on the stone wasn't fighting with the wall behind...sorry

Fair comment Nick and thanks for your points ... I guess I think you know whats coming Tongue

Actually, I agree somewhat about the erratic competing with the wall, but the tonality between them is not that different ... neither is their proximity to each other ideal. As for the light areas going to almost white, after all it is a big lump of light coloured limestone with the late afternoon light is reflecting off it quite strongly - plus it's a single shot and not blended, so going to almost white is acceptable to me. Anyway, it is a black & WHITE image Tongue Wink
