Very interesting and different shot of a familiar subject. Well spotted and shot.

Hmmm, silly comment but I think it would look better without the grate! Like the yellow lines, but the 'horizontal' lines of the grate detract from things I reckon...
The building itself looks great - did you do a similar landscape one?

nice low angle shot. The double yellow lines really stand out.

Never thought I'd say that I really liked the double yellow line!! But I do, it demands the central perspective and works very well to contrive the eye right through the picture. I agree with Clatimer about the grate.... nice one, went there once to see 12 hours of Greek Tragedy, a play called Tantalus, fabulous place.... helen

Composition pulls you through. Replication of vivid colour add to impact Adrian. Ron.

Very clever use of the wide-angle. The lighting and composition is spot-on.

I like the perspective and vanishing point. Well composed. I also like that saturation of the colors. Overall, very nice shot.

not a lot I can do about the grate Chris - it's there and I was stuck with it!

I like yellow lines, a good, strong tool for those lead lines

Wow! Cheers Pete, all the laughing I heard when crawling on the floor to get this one was worth it after all!

There were lots of smokers stood outside the bar door just to the right and they thought I was a little odd Smile

Excellent stuff. The low lights on the building work brilliantly to balance to double-yellows. Great, moody shot and congrats on the EC.

nice angle has a very good perspective like the yellow lines with the lights on the left kinda looks a bit reflective of the lines.
