I really like this shot Steandeb - great composition and a really good mono conversion.

I know you keep revisiting this place, so next time you get the chance try a portrait orientation version of this shot and give the illuminated man a little more headroom. I think you'll get a very dramatic shot by enhancing he verticals that way.

But never mind me, it's a great shot as is! Nice one :)

thanks for the advice ,much appreciated! i have only got a basic camera i so need to upgrade to a dslr,any advice on which one ? i take loads of different shots of the IM usually about 50/60 per visit and only end up with about three or four decent ones!

With the quality of the shots you already get, Steandeb, it just shows that it's not the camera so much as who's behind it. Three or four out of fifty isn't a bad hit ratio - sometimes it's the same for me, sometimes I get lucky and manage as much as one in five!

Camera wise, I use a Canon EOS 350D with an EFS 17-85 IS USM - the image Stabalisation via gyroscopes in the lens helps keep the camera shake to a minimum when shooting at low speed. The 17-85 zoom covers a huge range of circumstances.

I swear by that combination, but that's just my opinion and works for me and the sorts of shots I take right now. Others will have their preferences, so read lots of reviews of any recommendations folk make :)
