    I like the lines and angles and how the shapes guide the eye. B&W conversion is very nice.

    Mary... or Lucy... either is fine with me. ;)

    The row of umbrellas, the row of trees and then the straight line of the landing catch my eye... then the glow of sunlight on the landing. It's a nice crisp image, Raylee.

    I could see how your maths heart would love this. So much geometry. I like that, a lot. I'm not feeling tremendously qualified to comment on it all but my first impression was wanting to see the woman more or not at all. Is it possible to lighten her and/or sharpen her? (Don't know what I'm talking about.) What do you think? It's the human element and, I do believe, would be the thing that draws our eye, first, only, it doesn't quite hook me....yet.

    I mentioned before that it feels like Christmas, to me, when you post. Now, I'll be singing jingle bells all day long!

    That's a beauty.

    There's an air of the surreal about it. It must be that ball up in the air.

    A gorgeous richness right across the whole image. And, as said above, a plethora of lines and shapes to take the eye forward and back, through from front to back, up and down, etc etc.

    It's probably my brain, but I can't not look at the foating ball...can't get my eye to go anywhere else without forcing the issue. Love the tones, lines, and general ambiance, but the floater doesn't do it for me.

    Thanks for the feedback Mary, Katy, Donald and Chris.

    I'm flattered by your comments Donald as you are the master.

    Thanks all.

    Tp be really honest Raylee......I think it is superb. This is one of those rare walk in shots. The depth is palpable and your conversion is spot on. The only tiny niggle is that the clothing of the person in the shot could do with a slight dodge. Everything else has good detail but the clothes look a little blobby. Same with the first stack of chairs.

    I am envious of this one. Great work
