Nice shots! 2&7 are the standouts for me, I really like B&W.

Did you take any of the candle lit??

#1, #7 and #8 for me :smashin:

#4 has potential with the weaving path and I'm a little stumped as to why you chose what you did for a focus point. OK, if it was to render the church out of focus then thats fine but the section in focus is not appealing to the eye and dominates the frame too much. I think there's more opportunity at this place.

Thanks all.

Steve, yes, I can see what you mean.

For some reason I wanted to skew it slightly and take the church away from being the domintaing feature despite it being the obvious one.

I think if I'd gone slighty to the right and only used half the post it may do it better?

I follow what you are saying about keeping away from the 'obvious' photo but I think it's important to have a genuine point of interest as your focus point. Maybe if there is an interesting headstone or something about then use that. I think half a post would be..........well, half a post, and as it is weighted toward the top you would need a 'downward' angle to lessen it's impact on the shot generally.

Yeah, I get that.

Weird isn't it, how an idea with the camera in front of your face translates totally differently sometimes?
