Just back from London where I stayed in an incredibly posh hotel, had a meeting then went to stay with my late father-in-law's Civil Partner - a very successful trip.

So I thought I'd post 12 London shots and this time there are several with different versions of the same photo. First comes the straight photograph followed by the tinkered with version(s). V12 which is just there because Mrs Pankhurst is one of my Sheros. Do tell which ones you like and why.

Thank you for looking and I hope you like at least some of them.

A fine bit of tinkering, Lynne! I'm guessing you've used either 'Find Edges' or 'Ink Outline' to accentuate the edges. I like to use a subtle hint of the 'Find Edges' a lot on shots with buildings, which helps bring out details more and helps cut down bright highlights. Whatever, it's a fine collection here, and think if I have to choose, V3's my fave Wink

I used to like and use these effects a lot, usually far too excentuated. These are far more subtly done, but I still feel I prefer the originals...I am drifting away from these kind of effects.

I really like this set of images Lynne.
Your “tinkered” versions are very striking with the enhanced detail.
The “Straight” versions are very good but the tinkering gets my vote.
I very much like the compositions of V2, V8 and V10.

This is really tough,Lynne.Grin.. V!&V2, I would go for V2; V5&V6 , I would go for the lighter one,not a great different, but the lighter one has more detail on the right side..;I'm not so sure about V7&V8, v7 has better light, V8 has more detail on the building;V9&V10, I would go for V10...all of them have wonderful borders to enhance the image. Well done.

Yes Lynne,that Mrs Pankhurst was a woman of action who stood no nonsense.Glad I was not married to her though.I reckon I would have felt the thud of her rolling pin on my head when I staggered in late from the pub.I doubt she would have had a rolling pin however.I cannot image her with her being up to her elbows in self raising flour making scones for her hubbies supper in time from him staggering home from the pub.Dunno if she was even married.I might have felt sorry for her hubbie,but perhaps it was not so bad for him.When she went out to do a bit of marching,rioting and indulging in a bit of arson,he could go down to the pub without making excuses about getting a pint of milk or a bag of sugar !!
A fine capital set of pics here.
