On my work monitor they appear washed out and overexposed, by about 1.5 stops or so. Keep in mind that this monitor is not calibrated... Cool shots though.

I think they are fine Willy. They look a bit soft in color and it needs some punch in contrast.

What are you using for monitor calibration? I think this will help attaining the correct colors as you see it on your monitior.

Love that 4th one. The gate on the right bottom corner does the trick. Great shots. only like dizzle said needs a little contrast punch.

Thanks for the comments, 4th is also my favourite shot too

My monitor isn't calibrated at all. Using a brand new (1week old) philips x59 laptop.

I just finished calibrating my monitors and 1-3 and 5 look a bit flat. Punch up that contrast and repost the new ones!

I like them a lot Will but I think that I would like to see the statue in the center of #4 a little lighter rather than it just being kind of a shadow there. it draws my attention, being in the center which is fine but its not much to look at compared to the more colorful church and trees in the background...i might be wrong, id have to see it to be sure but thats my initial impression. Other than that theyre great man. keep it up
