Hi Allan,

Lost - lovely use of the light to spotlight the key.

MONSTROUS - What Stan said. Can't put it better.
The fact you've deliberately placed the face in shadow adds to the feeling of despair.
thanks, I'm sure the lighting isn't that deliberate on my part it was taken in the cloisters although surrounded by windows is quite a dark place, I do think the poor light helped with the feeling of the image

Perfectly symmetrical....do I even need to get my ruler out?! :D

Even the planters either side of the windows are perfectly placed....nicely shot.
Blowing the sky out works well for the simple composition....nice and contrasty....great detail too.

(y)
Thank you, not so much a blown out sky just a flat grey one but it did kind of work to my advantage

A simple and effective way to portray the theme, I agree with you about the two planters, they really make it work.

Crush(ed)
Well there goes my idea, I'll have to get my thinking cap on.
I like the white background, it helps to concentrate the eye on to the crushed nuts :wacky:

Fab shot!

I had another take on "crushed nuts" planned as a backup :naughty:

Hi Allan,

Monstrous - I think it has all been said already, but this is a powerful image of a powerful sculpture. You have captured it very well with a high viewpoint, which adds a feeling of vulnerability to the bowed head, and the B&W tones are spot on. I saw a similar memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum and it evoked such strong feelings in me; 'monstrous' is correct. Where is this one?
Balanced - a traditional old bungalow and almost perfectly symmetrical throughout. Good choice (y)
Crushed - ah, I had something like this in mind - I'll have to think again, especially as you have done this so well :) Light, layout and exposure all perfect as usual.
