Hi Frank,

I was just about to comment on the fact that you'd cut off the top of the arch when i realised I needed to scroll my screen up GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin - DOH!!!!!!!

I think that I don't need to say any of the niceties with you as you know what to expect by uploading here. However, I hate to say this Frank and it's such cliche but I would like to have seen the gates fully at the sides and have them lit with some fill flash. Not an easy shot without fill flash or HDR either but it would just give a little more of an edge. Also unfortunately for you the subject accross the water isn't very strong with all that blue sky and the buildings being so far away. Perhaps what this needs is a person looking accross the water, leaning on the fence off to one side of the arch.

Anyway, HERE is a similar shot of Westminster Tower and the HoP accross the Thames in London, taken by one of my Aussie mates whilst he was on holiday, it'll probably have you hurrying back to have another go when you see it.

The only way I can see of improving your shot is to get higher so you can get more foreground path/fence, more middleground water and background buildings into the frame of the arch rather than the blue sky.

Sorry to be a bit negative Frank but i know you will appreciate it.

Thanks Dave.
Nice shot in London - Here I had what was available through the arch (and only one arch there). Next time I pass I will have a look at the gates.

I think the arch etc. Need to be dark and lacking detail. What is missing for me is my figure. I think you needed someone leaning in that railing looking into the scene. The background dosn't stand out enough so needs a subject, then LIverpool becomes the foil to a human subject.
