Playing catch up again here:

No. 1 is a classic of an iconic structure, lovely colours.
Isn’t it amazing how a small horizon tweak can make so much difference?
No.2 - I prefer the B+W version, it could have been taken anytime during the past 100 years, maybe a small crop off the bottom?
No. 3 – My favourite so far, such vibrant colours that don’t look ‘overcooked’ and clever use of double exposure
No. 4- Another clever shot, this could also have been taken against the sun using a little underexposure, but I prefer the 'moon' element, nice composition too
Regards,
Michael

The pier picture, #1, is beautiful, expertly produced. Of the viaduct series I much prefer the first, the shadows of the bridge supports seem more clearly defined.
In #3 the vibrant colour of the leaf have a wonderful abstract feel to them which I find very appealing.
#4 is a well handled contre jour image with a lot of atmosphere and lovely light.

Thank you again!
I thought I'd finish with one of my favourites - a 'right time, right place' shot!
Again with the good old Z1-P on Velvia and a Sigma 70-300 APO. it was published in an AVA photography book on Lighting

Andy,

the last shot is really special, can see why it is one of your favourites. The dappled lighting and silhouettes are outstanding.

Thanks for an interesting and varied set.

Number 3 is great, very creative and I think the colour palette and the amount of blur is judged just right. Number 4 is expertly taken and quite dramatic, although it is probably means more to you personally than it ever would to anyone viewing it simply as a photo. However, you have saved the best image until last; number 5 is truly stunning and is a picture that any of us would be proud to call our own. If I ever get one like this in my lifetime I will be very happy indeed.

Regards
David

As David says above.

It's a lovely shot but I'm sure being there must have been even better ......

Thanks for a very interesting 'FIVE'

The last picture in your set is my favourite. Lighting, colour, appeal - it has it all. Its also a very good scan from a colour slide - most of the few transparencies I had copied to digital were pretty poor copies.

Everything about that last shot just works, Andy - absolutely fabulous and a wonderful note on which to end the set. Definitely my pick.

I appreciate the technique in shot #4, but the subject isn't really my cup of tea,

Thanks for all your input during the past few days - I've really enjoyed the voyage,

No wonder it's a favourite, the light and atmosphere are special.
Best wishes,

Andrew

No 5 is surely printed big and hanging on your wall. And probably in other peoples houses too unless you have rejected many offers. Great photo.

The last is stunning. Great way to finish. K.

I like all of these - a bit of a lesson in lighting for me with most of them
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

@ David Trout - don't know which scanner you used, but mine is a Minolta elite 5400 using Vuescan software
@ t7er - have done one print and framed, but its not actually hanging on the wall! I really ought to put it up!

Thank you all for the appreciation - its been a bit of fun doing this, and a discipline to pick 5 from thousands of images!

It was a friend's Nikon scanner, but it was in my early digital years and we were relatively inexperienced at scanning so perhaps both our techniques have improved since then.
