Re: B&W..St.Tysul Church, Llandysul

I'm surprised that no one has commented yet . . . this is a nice image, and an excellent B&W treatment. I'm still undecided about the lack of symmetry in the building. The "shield" at the bottom is tilted, and makes the rest of the building look like it's twisted out of shape. This may be exactly as it is in real life, but I'm not certain how I like it as a work of art. A completely symmetrical image would be static and dull, but I'm just not crazy about the appearance of this particular asymmetry. Otherwise, you've done a very good job with the subject.

Re: B&W..St.Tysul Church, Llandysul

Unfortunately I am not familiar enough with B&W to offer a critique that would be meaningful, but the photo is sharp with good contrast in my view. There are a lot of details in the shot that are interesting, such as the faces by the window or the shield and window themselves. An exploration of these would hold my attention more than a combined shot ....

.... and I like colour
"Stef" E-620 and stuff... and a new OMD EM-1
