old and new

By NikkiW  
After my dads funeral and mother in laws heart attack, she's fine now, phew, I needed to get away for a couple of days, so I went to stay in London with my daughter who is at uni there.

We took a walk along the South Bank with our cameras, she is an art student. And I liked the old with the new here.

Eventualy got round to playing around with it in photoshop and split toned, Hope you like it.....

I'm sorry to hear of your sad family news, I can quite relate to your feelings. I hope that the time spent with your daughter helped you to cope.

You've captured a fine architectural composition here, well done.

Best wishes, Paul

Like this very much - it works really very well. Does it lean a little to the left, or is it just the perspective?

Sorry to hear your news - I hope things are as well as can be expected.
