Taken recently on a trip to Leeds to photograph the buildings in the city. Had a great time despite the blanket of grey cloud.

I'd never have thought that a box junction could be an attractive element of a photo, but it's really quite effective here. It certainly draws the eye in the right direction.
Nice use of a really wide angle.
You don't like HDR...
Makes a great pic into a stunning one doesn't it ?
Really like the detail in this one..
Hi Tony. Hope the trip to Leeds went well. Certainly looks like it did judging by this. The processing has worked very nicely here and has created a nice atmospheric scene. Nice bit of cropping down and have you altered the verticals? Looks like it.
Good solid shot.
I like V1, excellent tones and contrast.
excellent detailed shot.ray
Done a cracking job of this on Tony, the light was pretty poor at this stage of the day so to get somethig to stand out like this takes a good bit of work and skill.
getting the people to be "people" rather than ghosts is no mean feat - did you use a shot of them off one of the middle photos and paste them over the top? Whatever you did worked.
Glad to see a shot with a high-contrast box junction made it up first anyway - after all, they are just as much a part of the city as that huge town hall is!
Look forward to seeing more
Sharon, I'd still rather create in the camera but having had Ades take on HDR I now have a better understanding of how it can be useful and how to use it more subtly.
Paul, verticles sorted big style on the edges. I used the leaning lamp post on the LHS as a guide on my first attempt and then wondered why the building was still leaning.
Ade, I simply erased the HDR layer back to reveal the people in the base layer. As the base layer and HDR layer were approx equal in these areas there wasn't much to tidy up afterwards.
Thanks to all for the votes and comments. More to follow shortly.
ah - we never did do the ND grad shots to prove my point that they don't work for architecture!
Imagine this shot with 2 stops of ND over the tower - it'd be dark and featureless and have a horrible tide mark where the grad changes.
There are very few shots we could have got where oyu could effectively use ND grads... I know because I've tried them all
Which building's next - I'm doing Nando's at the mo
I know what you mean though Ade. I tried them with a tree sticking above the skyline and failed miserably.
Next is The Bourse. Bourse means exchange by the way. Love the windows at the back
