    Jimmy I think these shots are quite effective. I like the way you have taken the shots at an angle to the subject and I think the subdued colours work well. I wonder if the shots are a bit tight and a little wider view might be better ?

    Hi Jimmy,

    This is the kind of shot I like taking too.

    I am in two minds whether to suggest them as 'proper' B&W as they have so little colour?

    I might also see if they look any better with a bit more exposure and contrast in PP.

    Cheers,

    Hi Dave, Thanks for the feedback! I see what you’re saying about the angle. The main problem I was running into was that moving further away was including some other carvings that I found irrelevant to the photograph I was trying to take.
    When I go back in that area I will try it again, maybe if I get myself lower I can do it!

    Hi Dave, thanks for the feedback! (I sware I did not copypaste this line from my previous reply.)
    I will give a spin to both your ideas tonight and repost with what I come up with

    There we go. Is that what you had in mind Dave? (Humphries)

    i layered the sculpture and the background to control the brightness on both and hopefully move the subject matter forward.

    Hi Jimmy,

    Yes, and you didn't overdo it
    Just right on contrast, although the second might benefit from the stone highlights matching #1 - i.e. a tad more exposure

    There's a groove (I think) in #1 which looks just like a climbing plant with bud from this angle, but we can't really change the sculptor's art, can we?

    Cheers,
