Paul B Jones: I like the photos a lot, they are far better than anything I could do.
But sometimes I wonder if abandoned buildings aren't the landscape image equivalent of the street photographer's homeless person shot. A perhaps too easy and cliched way to invoke an emotional response.
I don't believe there are in fast rules about so called "cliche" images as long as they represent the photographers vision.
Forget the camera, I really like the looks of the 20mm f1.8!
