No, not quite

The colour is all wrong despite a long time in post, plus I don't like the composition as much as I thought I would. Definition is missing plus plus plus a dozen other things. Dang but I had high hopes for this. The shadow of the pram is in the wrong place too. I might have to go back to give it another go if I am in London over the next couple of weeks. I thought perhaps (a) I should go back during daylight hours; and (b) I should take a tripod and use a long exposure, pushing the pram out and away from the camera ... Oh but I don't know, maybe the shot simply isn't there. The pram though, when I saw it, I was amazed - I'd recently toyed with the idea of buying a pram like this and so seeing it there in the church was synchronicitous (such a word?); my thoughts previously had centred on taking some shots of it in a field under starlight, solitary, slightly scary: maybe I'll still do that, but I couldn't turn down this opportunity.
So anyway, work continues.

Now, back when I were a nipper during my phirst phase of photographic interest, between the ages of about 18 and 25 (before the Exeter sojourn and the heavy-duty clubbing period thereafter), I remember I loved his work. However, since then, sadly, a more cynical Patrick held sway for a while (cynicism, for a long while, being my idea of sophistication) and I rather went off his pictures, or at least, the idea of his pictures. It seemed to me that everyone who had even the remotest interest in photography cited Adams as a key influence and criticism of him appeared off-limits. During this time I wasn't even sure that photography was an art, and that Adams couldn't be as good as I'd thought because he earned near universal praise for his work (I know, strange distorted thinking, but that's how …
