Amazingly I took this from the coach window as it slowed down. probably a dogs dinner, but never mind.

For me, there's a lot to like in this shot.

You've certainly got a dramatic composition, with the bridge soaring up into the top left corner of the picture against the startling and stormy sky.

Technically, the brighter parts of hte sky are blown and overexposed, but the rest of the image has a pleasing Impressionistic feel to it, and the tones are really rather lovely.

I think I can see a brighter reflection from the window of the coach towards the rigth of hte frame - when photographing through glass, get as close as you can to it, and shade the lens if possible to reduce reflections.

And I have a suggestion: set yourself a small photogrhaic project, and apply everything that you've learned from this Gallery, and all the things you have worked out for yoruself about what works for you and what doesn't to producing a new set of pictures. This will give you a chance to accelerate and refine what you're learning, by trying out the ideas people feed back to you, and developing new approaches.

This doesn't mean that what you've done before isn't important to you and to other people (I've recently posted pictures I took in 1970 with my first SLR, and created some interest because they were taken at Stonehenge when it was still possible to walk among the stones). Combining the old and the new is important, and is a part of developing yourself as a photographer.

You're demonstrating a questing mind and visual sense with your posts, and I want to see what happens next!

Thanks very much. I know have a circular poloriser, I know have to learn to use it. I don't mind photographing in Bristol but it can be a bit dodgey with strange people coming up and being a bit aggressive. It's not the sort of place I'd like to stay too long. I'm in a disabled group that go to these places, but they always in a hurry and I don't like to work quickly as I like taking my time.
