Open works very well for the theme
Distant is a great shot, I love how the train is hardly visible until you follow the smoke.
Cold is a great take on the theme, but maybe it should have been lager to really say Cold? ;)

Thanks for the comments. As for lager - this was a keg craft beer - just as cold as a keg lager :)

Cool shot for waiting Dave, goes well in mono and good to catch the bloke mid yawn.
Cheers :)

That works well in black and white Dave, good timing to get the person mid yawn, perhaps more space on the right as he is looking that way? Either way it's a good shot.
Ta. I like it with him looking out of the frame as it emphasises his ennui and detachment from the scene I think.

I agree the yawning man is perfect where he is it has quite a claustrophobic feel to it because of the architecture, excellent photo :clap:

Very well captured Dave. And to get the guy yawning too, really adds to your 'waiting' and his boredom of waiting

Excellent candid image!
It's making me want to yawn too....so you knows it's a genuine moment! Yawns are contagious!!:giggle:
Brilliant composition and processing, and those steps work really well.
It's a perfectly captured moment Dave, truly nice work!(y)
Thanks Gareth - I yawn every time I look st it lol.

Image well suited to black and white. Looks like he might have been waiting for someone as he was looking to his left as if he was looking for someone..... or something caught his attention. Definitely gets you thinking.

Waiting is a cracking shot, Dave. I love the way he's looking out of the frame and yawning - it suits this theme so well. The lines of the wall and the steps fill the other parts of the frame, and B&W makes sure there are no distractions from the main subject.
That's a good idea for 'rough' with the contrasting textures of the water and the light water against the dark rocks, and again B&W works well (y)

Spectacular!
I've (unsuccessfully) used long exposures to photograph this very stretch of water....looking back mine would have been better as mono.
Yours is tremendous....love the detail in the first, perfectly compliments the smoothness in the second.
Great work Dave!(y)

(I have just submitted my version of "take the rough with the smooth" also....it's not as good as this though)

Both work together very well Dave for rough, they go great in mono and love the rough one.
Thanks Dave. My prefered exposure would be somewhere between the two :)

Works very well nice use of Long exposure (y)
Cheers Allan :)

Possibly my favourite image for this theme. Love the comparison. Looks like you were lucky with the light levels as well. I can see this in a photoframe on a wall.
Thanks a lot - the light was difficult but manageable :)

Ace shot, like the two together to show the difference in shutter speed too. Well done Mono always works for me :)
Cheers :)

Great idea for rough along with smooth. I imagine you used ND filters?
Thanks - yes - B+W 10-Stop ND for the 5 seconds one.
