Very nicely captured reportage shot with excellent colour.
That's a pretty fancy piece of imitation water, Mick, if I may say so. And I thought 'wet look'was out of fashion
An extremely effective composition, Nezih, even if I suspect that the light was unkind to you. The angle of the boat across the frame is particularly striking; I like the scrappy grasses in the foreground too.
I am particularly un-keen on plastic, Mick, and to judge by comments above I am not the only one. True, the bodies of my cameras and some of the lenses (though not the 'glass' bits I hasten to add ) are made of plastic, but then I don't litter the countryside with them. A large proportion of the litter that our volunteers pick up every week consists of plastic: bags, coffee cups, food containers, the food itself, plastic bottles empty or full (we picked up three litre bottles of milk last Friday, they smelled as bad as the plastic bags of doggie do-dos left behind by 'caring' owners) and most unsightly of all the empty supermarket bags that get wrapped round trees by the wind - - - and I'm too old for climbing trees these days - - -
It's only the look that is smoother, Trev, not the actual rust - and just think how much extra corrosion is being caused by the water!
I bet if they could climb trees they would try to chew their way back down
Every self-respecting photographer ought to have a cliché or two tucked away somewhere and Durham cathedral makes a more impressive cliché than many. Even if you make use of The Tripod Holes of Ages Past and photograph across the river using The Weir on the Wear as a leading line!
