I like the idea, but this is a subject that is really a challenge to expose well. There isn't enough detail in the picture for me to really get excited. I certainly applaud you in your attempt to photograph a very difficult subject.
Thats' how we get better. Certainly, one would think a dark cave to be a good B&W subject.

All the best,
smac

->Great subject<- ... ->horrible<- shooting conditions. Couldn't really offer much advice unless I was there, but if you have a tripod, don't be afraid to use ->whatever<- shutter speed. 1 second? 2 seconds 8 seconds? Whatever. If you do this, use the 2 or 10 second self-timer, even your tripod shaks when you press the shutter. That's all I can think of. If there's motion in the shot that blurs, sometimes that's a cool/interesting effect.

smac and nicktrop thank you both, I was a little hesitant in posting the pic, black and white has never been my favorite, but with this camera it's a whole new ball game. and I am starting to really enjoy my other photos also in B/W. Again thks.

hey Nooner whatta did ya do??? I like it. 'My' photo was a waterfall that actually drops thru a cutting in the rocks that has been worn over hundreds of years into a cave, which is why the light is unusual, I'm shooting from inside.

And Nicktrop, I would of takin the tripod but it is one hell of a walk to this place and I was on a day out with my eldest Son and his loved one, not really a day for 'Photography' but I get your point, next time I will be going late afternoon as inside the cave are 'Glow-worms' it will be interesting how they may come out, as flashes are not permitted.
