Great image...I like the different light on the clock faces.

Leave the logo off. A decent image where the filter zctually seems to work quite well. Usually best to be very careful with software effects. I wonder what you saw? Nothing really makes me think, great. Lacks that impact for me.

Subjective.

Hi, Jo, and welcome from me to the Critique Gallery. I missed your first upload, but having had a quick look at it, and at it, and your website, I'm delighted to find someone who hass set out to explore photography so purposefully, and is trying so many different things. I particularly like the way that you are aiming to record the journey - something I never thought of, back in 1968, and which I regret now.

There are two things that come back from the comments on your first upload... One is that this shot is slightly tilted: the other is the logo. Both are easily corrected.

You've got a full range of times here, and good focus. My query is about the high ISO setting, which has led to both a high shutter speed and quite a small aperture. Using a lower ISO would have allowed a wider aperture, which would have at least partly thrown the background out of focus. While you may want to specifically use the software method you chose here because it looks the way you want, you may want to achieve similar effects in the camera at soem point. The wider the aperture, the more objects behind or in front of the plane of focus will blur. The effect with a bridge camera like yours will be less than with a larger sensor, but still very noticeable.

I'll upload a mod cropped square and tight in on the clock, rotated a degree and a half (I did this in Photoshop Elements, but most editing software allows it, I think).
