    These have worked well, particularly considering the fairly high Iso settings.

    Possibly the first one is a fraction overexposed.

    The second is perfect.

    I wonder about a very slight crop from the bottom and right side of number 3 to reduce the area of shadow.

    The last is good, but I would consider cloning out the two items in the bottom right corner to give better balance.

    Geoff,

    Thank you for your comments, I was thinking the same, I was unsure as there are too many pixels in view on first pic, I was amazed by the colours I was getting, using AV in hindsight I may have gone for shutter instead,

    Av to control the aperture, and the depth of sharp focus, is definitely the best approach with these shots. Just beware of ending up with too slow a shutter speed for hand held shots, or use a tripod.

    Also watch for any subject movement with slow shutter speeds, but that wasn't an issue here.

    Geoff,

    I used a tripod, but missed the ISO and shutter speeds, too engrossed in the colours I was seeing !
