Interesting shots - number 4 for me, I always like a nice contrasty b/w

The last one sticks out a little though, not too keen on it.
All the gear with no idea

Number 4 for me too.
1st one also works well upside down.
Good shooting.
I know what i like, If not always why.

Excellent place for a day out - and you look to have made good use of it. Is that horrible rope fence still round the big Henry Moore? Took me ages to clone it out!

looks like it was a worthwhile day out!

Number two for me. It has a wonderful sensuous quality to it. Number three is a close second.

The top three are great, love the composition of them and the verdigris against the blue skies.

Thanks for the comments Haris, Derek, David, Gwyn and Rick.
Haris: The last one sticks out from the rest because its not strictly an abstract.
Gwyn: I too found some of the shapes quite sensuous.
Derek: I must try No.4 upside down, that's the joy of abstracts, you can play around with them.
David, I don't recall seeing a big sculpture by Henry Moore, with or without a rope fence, but the site is so huge I'm sure we just scraped the surface on Friday and its going to take another visit to discover more.
Rick, The verdigris and blue sky appealed to me too.

Really enjoying these, especially the first three. Interesting to see how leaving/not leaving space between the elements give very different results - both approaches work quite well. #4 goes in a whole other direction, perhaps showing more of the artwork in situ - I'm sure much time could be spent in that park!

some nice crops of some interesting pieces - I particularly like the mono processed shot

Great stuff David... I'm rather partial to the first three too, and number 2 in particular...

Thanks Sry, Lenny and Bill. It was a great place to visit but the site is huge and I probably barely scratched the surface. Might have to go back again sometime.

First three for me also, from which I would pick number 3 as top choice.

The last one grates a bit, possibly because it's not vertical; I think it might also work better for me with just the middle block.
