Thanks Rooz. I guess I should get something right by now.
DPRob. You'll be surprised. No fancy light but natural and with the most basic of gear. I'm not sure if I used a tripod though it was a long time ago; and it was taken with my Sigma 18-50 which is now sold. Photoshop makes lots of difference though, but even that it was just tweaked from RAW.

Here is another.
I have been shooting them for a few years now and never bother to enhance and post them. Is this one better or worse than the last? Comments welcome.
St Mary’s Cathedral, Sydney, Australia.
Which version do you prefer?
I prefered the earlier rose due to the softer light.
Prefer the B&W cathedral but would consider cropping off some of the foreground grass.
Despite all the new gear I'm struggling for motivation to shoot, but here's a happy snap from last weekend.
From the Bacardi Rum museum.
I prefer the composition of the black and white as the ball street lamp near the round window is distracting as is the office block peeping around the edge.
Black & White for me, both for the light and composition.
