I really can't think of a title for this. It's part of a strange hotch-potch of bits from a scrapyard made into a "sculpture" or "work of art" which sits in a pool of water at More London. Anyway, two treatments/versions, just because.

Thank you for all your comments on my previous lighthearted uploads. Much appreciated.
And I'm so glad I'm not the only one - IYKWIM. Wink

Will catch up with some voting etc. soon. Yesterday was a bit of a day so have got behind. Sad

V.1 looks like my water tank on the roof, which has sprung a leak and has to be replaced. Sod's law, the leak is at the bottom and not the top Sad
Rather a strange water sculpture, Chris, not sure 'sculpture' is the right word to describe it Grin Carol

The sculpture (The Navigators) is a bit of an abstract in itself, Chris. I like the part views and processing making an abstract of the abstract. The presentation of v1 is pretty nifty, too.

A couple of great images Chris, love the abstract nature of the shots, they work very well in mono. Superb

Thanks Dave. I'm hopeless at getting details like titles. Smile

How clever to find these two abstracts out of that monstrosity Chris which work really well in mono! I couldn't even begin to see these...

Love the splashing water in V1, Chris: the most attractive part of the entire installation?????
Your processing is just right for the subject, in both cases. Both compositions work well, too. I didn't notice the coins in the fountain through my fisheye lens or I might have jumped in to fill my pockets WinkWinkBlush

Looks like a bit of something the Fat Controller will soon wave his flag at, ChrisSmile
The conversion to b&w makes the water look like black oil.

I like both versions, they are intriguing but wonderful abstracts and bot work so well as B&W shots. Well seen and executed.

Good images! I love that area Hay's Galleria
The bronze fountain at the centre of the Galleria is a 60 ft moving sculpture of a ship, called 'The Navigators' by sculptor David Kemp, unveiled in 1987 to commemorate the Galleria's shipping heritage. It's nice to sit there having a coffee just looking at it... IB

This is excellent, V1 particularly, as I love the way the water has been caught. It's a bit like water leaking through an old range.

Particularly like V2. A seriously class piece of work. I'd have that on my wall.
