When I was a child I often had a dream of a building like this. This image reminds me of this dream although in my dream an orchestra was playing in it ;). Love it. Wonderful b/w tones.

I love this one, as it reminds me of a special place, in my home town, where I was born, as they had a rotunda just like this one, in the Queens Park.....
We went there often, to special nights with stalls, music with a brass band, and a chocolate wheel, which I loved....
I am going to add this image as a favorite, because I love the image, and also love my memories as well..

you did a good job dodging and burning.


How did I get the sky so dramatic? Well I don't think I can take credit for what the sky looked like, hehe :) All I did was darken the top a tiny little bit using a very large burn brush in PS.

I really like the tones in this shot. Too bad about the distortion on the roof of the bandstand...but I'm sure the larger image doesn't have that problem. The only thing I would change is the border. I happen to like borders, but I think this one is too heavy for this shot.

this should be in everyone's favorite film

Perhaps just a bit over-sharpened, and I would have liked more contrast between the water and the sky on the right, but it is a lovely photo just the same.

Very beautiful.

The best part of this is the contrast and lighting. For me, that keeps drawing my eye regardless of the actual scene. I like this very much becuase I keep wanting to look at it longer.

Excellent composition, and B&W a dead-on choice for this one.

What a charming photo! Like a little time warp to a more mellow era. I'd have preferred to see all of the flower-bed on the left, otherwise, it's perfect!

Beautiful image! Love the contrast on the building. The right side by the trees is a bit hot but otherwise this image is terrific! Good luck on the challenge.

Very nice composition and rendering. It is clean and crisp with great tonal range. On my second pass through my scores - I added a point.

Beautifully done. Contrasts are right on. Excellent in all ways.

Beautiful composition, great backlight, very special atmosphere. I wonder how you got the bandstand so light and clear while having the trees in silhouette (strong flash used ?).

Lighting is great and I love the high contrast. Composition is great with the two trees, diagonal line of the fence and wonderfully ornate bandstand. A great image!

Edit to correct typos!

Interesting contrasts on this shot. Not sure , but I think it might have been better in color.
