Looks like you were standing to the side of it a couple of steps to the right would have helped with the symmetry, good image for the theme though

Great image. My first thought when I saw it on the main thread was that it may be the Royal Albert Hall. I'm not sure we could build like this these days. You've captured the detail in the carvings really nicely.
Thank you Jim.

Thank you Allan, I was in the middle of the road and had to move out of the way of traffic.

Yeah I like that. The hated anti-pigeon spikes are a dsitraction but not your fault.

Hi Dave,

Wet - PABD maybe, but it works well for the theme and you were unlikely to get a bright sunny day + rain (though not impossible) until April.

Free Week - Well, this was always going to be a performer of some kind wasn't it ;) A good choice to frame them between the doors, and the 23mm of the 100f gives you the space. I might have been tempted to straighten the verticals (as there is a slight trapezoid going on). Dunno.

Entrance - Hmm not for me this one Dave, the blacks feel a bit on the grey side, at least one vertical is off and there is barrel distortion from the lens (doesn't c1 have lens profiles?). I don't think this shot plays to the strengths of the 56mm f/1.2 Sorry.

Love this image Dave, that's a terrific, very ornate entrance!
Very nice light and super details - the mono treatment works very well....lovely contrasts.
Super!(y)

Thanks guys, had to try out the new lens.

Hi Dave

Object - Nice shot, full of texture and the colours work together well. I keep getting distracted by the bike though.
Wet - Cool, but I think I prefer it in mono despite this ticking the SOOC box.
Free week - Nice of them to frame themselves between the doors! You've managed to capture the energy.
Entrance - Nice doors but I can't help feeling it lacks a certain je ne sais quois. I don't know if it's the asymmetry or what but it doesn't quite grab me (sorry!)

Catching up on comments,

Cold, I prefer the colour version as well,

Waiting, 2 good photos of people waiting, just as well they had phones to look at, what would people do with out them!. Nice contrast, I think I prefer the first one, but there is not much in it.

Rough, quite a picture of the sleeper, lots of questions, his suitcase has flight labels on it, the sleeping bags look new. I really like the colours in the piller and the texture is good but maybe better with more of it showing.

Object, both very nice objects dave.Lots of details in both, but the first one wins for me.

Wet, Theme tick, SOOC ticked. I like the way the background is really blurred, keeps me guessing

Free, nice enough shot dave, there is action, colour and detail.

Entrance, thats a grand entrance, they had plenty of money in those days. These days the money goes into corperate shareholders pockets rather then nice building and local people. Lots of details in the stone work. Well captured.

Thank you Jon, I think the only time I will use the 56mm will be only people shots.

YOUNG - I like the B/W image. Spot-on capture. It has a 60s look for sure.
Ooops! Missed ENTRANCE! Well, certainly a grand entrance. Maybe better if more symmetrical? Not sure. It looks fine to me.

Thank you folks for the comments. @GarethB I found the right words for the colour thingy, it`s Chromatic Aberration.
