    I especially love the monochrome photo of the columns. The repeating pattern and the contrast between light and shade is fabulous and the monochrome really brings out the texture in the carving of the columns.

    It seems the monochrome image is a hit – deservedly so! It’s a great subject with the repeating pattern and the textures, tones and shapes are lovely.
