Thanks for posting your links, John. Looks like a dull wet day at both Ely and Snailwell! This often seems to enhance color but it difficult with B&W unless there's nice reflections from wet surfaces. Getting critical, there's something about the tonality... maybe underexposure handicapping your darker areas and what often looks like flare around brighter areas. Or it could be something in the post-processing, as in one shot there's a juniper or some such on the left that has what looks like a bit of solarization. Anyway, I like 3379441 which caught my eye on the nice organization, and the gravestones to remind us of mortality. :)
