    Snagged this on the Richmond Park meet. Just really like the shape.
    Converted to mono and cropped a bit (8x10).

    Sorry mate, but this does not work for me. Maybe you took it too close, but the hole at the top is too high in the shot. Maybe it would have been better to have shot it so the hole was lower, as per the rule of thirds?

    It's interesting but I think there needs to be more of an obvious focal point.

    I find these shots really very difficult to do well.

    Was too bloody cold on Sunday to change lenses John :rolleyes: It is however cropped so i could move it about some.

    I know where youre coming from Ally. What the eye and what the camera sees, sometimes is not easy to shoot (well for me anyway).
