Shots 2 & 3----2 is lovely, and that's why I think London was better in years past. Have you considered doing a touch of "architectural adjustment" to # 3? Also a lovely shot.

Third shot is excellent!... light and shade really well controlled and proportional....(I also get great results from the 25mm, but rarely see this kind of light where I live...I bought it using the proceeds of selling my 67 300mm M* EDIF...which I now regret as it was also a great lens!).
Thanks, chaps. Truly appreciate it. Sorry for the slow reply - have been unwell this week.

Texandrews - I will certainly give that a try. Have already applied some correction, but will try a bit more. Can't make up my mind if it is ugly or sort of stylised in the geometry...

South Pacific

This is a shot of Taveuni, Fiji taken in 1999 with a Pentax 6x7 and Velvia 50. I spent many months in the South Seas.

I think I've said it before, but flower shots are your best subject by a long shot. Get thee to a botanical garden.

Yeah, it's been a reliable film for me in terms of seeing the final results in my head when taking the picture with some forgiveness in its latitude. The 'long-toe' Rollei films I've been shooting are still something I gotta keep working on.

Thanks. You are very kind. I need to get down to Cleveland Botanical Garden. My wife and I are flower gardeners, and we are constantly adding new plants to give us different subjects for the cameras.
