Given that it is an unused office, the space was very pleasant. Information was good, easy to read and the photos were great.
Maybe have ambient music playing to drown out the traffic noise.

This is an excellent exhibition with stunning photographs, well worth the visit.

A lovely exhibition. We welcomed the inclusion of extra information about the inspiration for the images themselves, although would love to see individual explanations.

Paula Wilson

Great range of images, great venue – unfortunately not near city centre.

Helen McCann-O'leary

A good exhibition as always. I find it slightly distracting to search for the theme in a couple of shots that don't fit. However, this is a small thing and all the photos are worth viewing.

A visitor from Coventry

I like the photographs chosen as many of them communicate a mood like sadness/happiness through the elements. Nice exhibition.

A visitor from Coventry

Wonderful to see the prints printed really big.

Sac Shillington

Good display, and comments – photographs showed the title of the exhibition well.

Yvonne Shillington

I absolutely love the images that have a lot of feeling to them, like the one called 'homeless', it must be my favourite.

Another fascinating exhibition. Good to see more camera details, settings etc. for images. It would be interesting to include detail of where images were taken.

Again, a varied exhibition of images with a personal interpretation on the theme. Personally I would have liked to have seen more within 'fire' theme. There did appear to be a dominance of 'blurred' water, also several submissions by one or two photographers. Overall, an excellent exhibition
