Taken with my trusted Panagor 90mm f2.8 I think at 400 iso. Not your typical interior shots I know, but I like different.

Noddy, your first shot is interesting and appealing. I like the figurines in the shot and they're well placed, there's a balance here.

A well observed series. Super place, isn't it?

Even though I only live a short distance away from Calke and visit it regularly it still remains one of my favourite National Trust Houses. It never fails to grab my attention with it's faded grandeur, tentatively holding on to it's past glory days.

I like the tap. There is a bare simplicity to it. Might look good converted to black and white and with some film grain added.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Agree with womble, I think its the best of the set. A bit central would look better with it on a thirds line in the shot.

I like the tap too, and agree that it might look better cropped, with a bit cropped off the left hand side.

I hope you don't mind, I couldn't resist having a play. I was going for the 6x6 TLR sort of look. If you want me to delete it, just say.

Best wishes, Kris.

I love the 2nd and 3rd shot (sorry, figurines just aren't me), and agree 2nd (tap) would be nicest in B&W - maybe to follow that theme, take all the colour out of 3rd apart from the blue wall as a spot colour?

Great work!
Still shooting in the dark (literally and metaphorically)...

Hi Kris
No your more than welcome to have a play, it just so happens I'd crop it to left myself to keep the shadow but I was unsure so I left it central. But I do like the your crop.

Thanks for the comments much appreciated .
