Very nice shapes and perspective. Lovely stone colours too (even the mysterious pink splodge).

Great composition, great lines. I'd have probably given in to the temptation to clone out the pink thing.

I'd also clone out the pink graffitti, and maybe have taken from a slightly lower perspectve, but excellent idea! The handrail leads you across the picture.

thanks for the comments. I thought about cloing out the pink graffitti, but there was a reason for leaving it in (maybe a little convoluted) On the way into Durham i was thinking of the absolute pasting that Middlesbrough took from a Channel 4 programme about being the worst place to live in Britian. (there is some stunning architecture in Boro)Durham city always gets put pretty high on the lists of "nice" places to live, i wanted to show that it wasnt perfect. Rather than taking the obvious back alley take away rubbish shots, i thought i'd try to do something a little less so. thanks for reading ( of you got this far)
hopefully get down to boro to do a similar slant at some stage soon

for some reason this caught my eye & couldnt stop looking at it, just reminds me of a "sales graph" in a totally different light although i wouldnt want to be shareholder with dipping sales like that lol. Gets my vote Smile

Your comment on my " British Rails " shot brought me to your previously unnoticed pf and this jumped out at me straight away.
My description of something like this is its so simple its tooooo clever for most, well done for being so smart and for doing it. Top job !
