I like the one of the door - that's the sort of picture where the heavy, smoky HDR look works best I think - on hard, highly-textured surfaces like wood/stone.

Also like the effect on the gravestones but not the church so much. 6 is nice but I think you've over-sharpened 5 - I can see a light line around the church.

#3 is damn near perfect. You can see the softness of the church in #4 as compared to the sharpness in #5. You have also done a great job on #6. Any plans to fix the ghosting of leaves in #4? #1 and #2 make #3 look soft. And #1 I think has the black set a bit too high. Its the only shot that has such a contrast between the original brick color and the black pollution stain. You might want to pull back on the black there also. And what can I say about the cellar door pic? Its perfect. I wonder why so many locks. You've got a great handle on the processing. None of the colors are goofy. Well done Simon.

So Simon whats with the history as well to the place shot here... I love history as well of photos of it! Just where is it whom built it and whom would be here that was of some historical means! I love the way some look as if they are drawn rather than shot! Great job of the photo end of the deal!

I think that is a lot better. Not so contrasty between the original color and the black dirt. Oh you might want to change the clock hands which are always shown at 10 to 2. hehehe
