The Angel

By saltireblue    
My take on the iconic Angel of the North.
I like this new lens as it makes mrswoolybill look smaller that the Angel. (That's her, nearest the base of the Angel. mr. woolybill is of course the tallest figure apart from the Angel itself).
I think I am going to enjoy using this lensWink

Many thanks for all recent interest and comments, etc....they are all appreciated.

Thanks for bothering.

Snap! Or words to that effect...
It's a good place to play with new lenses...
Nice silhouetted body language. And not just the Angel.

I like the statuesque figures round the base of the Angel.

Good one Malc but I fear you need to do some cloning starting with the Angel as he looks more prominent than Moira. I like that lens and use it a lot.

Anything that brings me down to size is to be welcomed. Especially if the true rotundity of my embonpoint is thereby concealed Blush
Of course, I look best of all in silhouette Smile
As for the Angel . . . . .
Love all those tiny figures. Excellent shot.
