    Did you mean for all of your photos to be so dark? It works really well with the first image of the spiral stairs, but the rest just seem underexposed. I'd do something like this with the poppies photo.

    mauvais change has become unavoidable

    It's subjective though, isn't it. I think by conventional standards they're underexposed, but it's not enough to be 'wrong', and it gives them more of a defined mood - a certain point in the day, which it may or may not have been.

    Yes, it is subjective, but it can also be because someone has a really badly adjusted monitor. If you turn the brightness up to full then any photos that look good on your screen will look dark on a properly adjusted screen. Which is why I asked 'Did you mean...'. If the OP meant them to be that dark that's absolutely fine. And I only commented because the OP specifically said that criticism was welcome.

    I'm not having a go, just suggesting it might be good as-is :)

    Here's one more. It's my wife, checking out the displays at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis. Decided to go black and white. For those who don't know, Stax was a recording studio and record company that was really influential in the rise of soul music, as well as other genres like blues and funk, in the United States. The museum is in the same building as the original recording studio.

    Bourton-on-the-Water, Cotswolds.
    It's a surreal place, very touristy. It's like a posh seaside town in the middle of the country.

    E1780707-5066-4937-98E0-2E5C2FE507EA.jpeg Fox cub update! Thought there were three, but only two, a male & female. They’re both growing so fast. She is on the left, slightly smaller. Reckon they must be at least 15 weeks old now. She’s more timid now than she was, but he is as bold as brass.

    Apologies for delayed response - yeh, I tend to always slightly underexpose, I tend to like it a little darker. I think it comes from learning as a teenager, shooting only B&W and looking at Don McCullin books, and something I continued when I restarted taking photos (but digitally). I confess it's pretty much what I do by default and probably should try to refrain from doing it automatically.
