Barbara Stevens: You’ve captured the light really well, and I love the cyclists.  I’m not sure about the lamp post – I think that it might be better without it.
Gina Grimwood: I like this picture a lot – especially the water with its gentle reflections -it’s just right. Not sure about the lamp-it’s probably something you’ll have to try out!
Margaret Eggleton: A good painting but a pity about the lamp post! Could you paint it out, David?
