Like the curve repeat here Bill good use of a shallow DOF
regards Richard
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.

Very good focus with spot on DOF.bold with impact, like it.

The detail makes a wonderful image - and has to be mono.

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.
