Hi Mark,

Empty - Nice, Simple. Possibly one you could have used for Colour Pop too?
Plastic - A little on the dark side for me, but effective.
Interior - Fascinating. I too had to look that up, and with my new NT membership, I think I will be visiting.
Life - The chaps shaking hands has an almost Pink Floyd feel to it. not feeling the muted mono though. More punch for me (but ymmv).
Free Week - The BCN is a lot more salubrious than the last time I navigated a narrow boat through it. loses a bit of it's charm when you're not navigating past dead dogs / dumped shopping trolleys / stolen cars though.
Closed - Complimentary colours - check. Shallow DoF - check. Not feeling the love for it though, sorry.
Wide - I don't get the relevance to wide. I looked to see if the film was designed for those panoramic film camers, but I didn't get that impression. The colour pop works nicely though :)
Dirty - Definitely pushing the dynamic range there. Bang on for imagery for the theme.
Drink - I think the angle works, with the kettle and plate oof in the background.

Simple but effective (y)
Nice shot for empty, great use of bokeh and it suits the mono processing.
:agree: with all of the above!

Great shot Mark!
Very nice mono treatment, and the simple subject and composition work extremely well.
(y)
Works very well, and a great image.
Empty
Good black and white, also good positioning of the glass.

Many thanks for all the feedback, there's some good constructive points to get my teeth into!

That's fab Mark!:clap:

Great subject and framing, and the processing is excellent too.
The light was working well for you on that day, and the crop is very appropriate.
Just needs a bright red door (sorry @Dave70D ;) )
My eye is drawn to whatever that is on top of the tower.
That's a fabulous building, classical church architecture. The mono conversion and the portrait format suit the scene well.
That is a great image for building, love it in mono as it really makes the shot.
Mark, the composition suits this really well. The B&W conversion works. Right on theme.
Building
Good looking church, black and white suits the building too.
Many thanks for the feedback

Not sure on the soft focus or out of focus part of this although I understand why I really don’t think it needs it, it would work in focus too

Soft
I'd have liked too have seen a little bit of focus on one or two of the seeds. But I can see what you're going for.
