My first contribution to the Saturday shadows club was taken just outside of Boris Johnson's office on the South Bank about a year ago. I've given it a bit of miscellaneous treatment to bring out some textures.
Thanks for looking and for any comments and/or criticisms.

No one could argue with your title for this one, Ann: if the weather down there just now is anything like up here (-1.0 this morning), I guess these seats will still be unoccupied.

This is a very pleasing image Ann apart from meeting
the Saturday shadows ideal - with those textures it makes a lovely abstract.

A well thought out composition Ann with good use of the shadows. Your processsing is excellent really bringing out the shine on the chairs and the texture of the tarmac.

The intriguing thing here is that there are far more shadows than chairs, so a bit of a mystery as to what we cannot see.

Shadows and shiny bits, the essence of Café society in Italy at least, and in Italy the chairs don't freeze your assets if you sit on them. Mark you the cost of a coffee in Italy can scare the hell out of you.
