    Thanks for looking and any help would be great...

    Aside from number 4 being a bit dark compared to the others, they are pretty cohesive contrast wise.
    Number 2 has an almost glow, is it a filter or just the quality of light?..

    Your B&W's need more oomph. Maybe puch the contrast a little.

    #2 grabs me more than the others, but the composition is a little odd.
    I think on this I would take more off the left side.

    number 2 had the gaussian filter on it. Thanks for the comments and the crop Bitter

    I agree with Bitter regarding his comment on the B&W not having enough punch and I like his edit - still too soft of course ...

    I also think that they all seem to be lacking with respect to composition - as if they were the result of being cropped out of a larger scene, with your choice of subject location in the shot being limited as a result.

    I would have kept #3 in color, punched up the contrast, and applied some unsharp mask. That might have made #3 my favorite - particularly if the blue of the sky was deepened enough in contrast to the white of the statue. Something like this maybe:

    I like it better than the B&W version. It's not that I don't like B&W (although most of my posts today seem to say otherwise :wink:), it's just that the shots seem fuzzy.
