Riverside walk

By TrevBatWCC    
Set off yesterday to go the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, as they always have special events on Bank Holiday Mondays. However, as it was such a nice warm and sunny day, decided it was a shame to be indoors, so after having lunch at my favourite watering hole in Leeds, Whitelocks pub, went on a walk alongside the River Aire. These were the first two shots I took, of the tall Bridgewater Place building rising up from behind Victoria Bridge. Just as I was composing V1, a narrow boat conveniently came along to add a bit of extra interest - just a pity I didn't get it more to the left Sad And, it wasn't until I loaded the images onto the computer that I realised there was flare coming in from the left on V2, but think I rather like the effect it's produced Smile

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 4 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

You have the wake of the narrow boat visible, which relieves the texture of the water!
And on a hot day I imagine Whitelock's would be a good refuge . . .
Good use of vertical format, Trev.

Hi Trevor, I like both photographs being V1 and V2. Framing is perfect in both photographs. Well done. Kind regards Mickey.

A lovely walk. That narrowboat looks inviting.

A wise choice to go outdoors, Trev!
Two excellent photographs - the compositions, exposure and colours - first class.
I rather like the flare, too!Smile

Two extremely good compositions capturing the old and the new or vice versa. I particularly like the natural framing caused by the imposing foliage from the overhanging tree. When it comes down to nominating a favourite its a tuffy Trev. Image one is full of interest, the barge making for a great focal point, however I rather like the shards of light cascading across the canal to the tow path so I shall opt for image number two today "Superb" Love your style of processing as it is non evasive and really lift the image.

The gentle pace of a narrowboat in a modern environment - makes a lovely image, Trev, especially with the natural framing of the leaves.

I like the rays of light and the flare in V2, but V1 wins hands down for the part frame of leaves, the fact that it extends down the right side as well as along the top.

Lucky you getting the old and the new in V1 and I love the flare and rays in V2. The building, locally known as 'The Dalek' is beautifully portrayed in both shots.

The river boat harks from a different age to the ultra modern tower block, and adds a nice visual contrast.
Both images captured so welland in attractive compositions, Trev.

V2 is my favourite, I like the flare, and the way you have used the handrail and its shadow, but I also like the framing foliage being more prominent and along the right side, not competing with the building.
