I've commented on a few of your shots and have probably mentioned exposure and processing maybe every time. Its safe to say you've got a handle on that. Care to elaborate on your processing?

Love how the light on the wall fades away in that downward curve.

An exceptional shot Stu! The character and scene reminds me of a 1960s detective movie. Amazing light, shadow and perspective. Well done.

I really like something about this image and I just can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe the symmetry and textures.

It took me a while to pinpoint what mood this projects, loneliness. I also agree with Tim from High Desert about your exposure and processing, even more impressive in that I assume you are doing it with your back-up. I don't see any loss in quality. Any word yet about your 50D?

It is Stuart. A great allegory for me here, of passing time, from youth to old... as we walk along a corridor, passing through different doors. A meaningful photograph in many ways. Composition and mono really fit perfectly here.
