Nice one Eric. When I first looked I was not too sure about the composition, the correlation between the scroll and the buildings. But I find the more I study it, the more I like it, it grows on me! Well spotted!
(I have taken a couple of similar shots from the Iron Bridge, it will be interesting to see how they come out when I get my Velvia back).
Click.
Best wishes, George.

Love how you've cleverly used the scrolls as a frame, Eric, and I especially like the light glinting on the metal. Excellent shot.

This really works well. The ironwork is used brilliantly to frame the scene without getting in the way. Subtle lighting... all round good stuff.

Excellent work, Eric. The use of the railing as a framing device is really effective and adds interest to what would have been a gray, damp street scene. Nice one.

Thank you Pete, glad you like it. Good to hear from you. Smile

I spent about 15 minitues trying this from various positions, looking at how the scrolled ironwork cut up the scene, trying a tiny step left, a tiny step right, trying a tiny step foreward a tiny step back, trying the 18mm end of the zoom and everything up to the 50mm each time. I decided this was the best I could get. Nice to have my decision confirmed by so many. Smile
