Through the Window

By Mollycat
Having a rest, and a beer or two, at the Custom House in Gunwharf I looked out the window and thought of ' War of the Worlds '. Funny what a beer does to the mind. Bloke beside me thought it was a crane.

kinda overexposed
20 Mar 2014 2:17AM
great shot, but I have to agree that the outside bit is over.
You have done a great job on this very hard to capture subject. Good light with a little over exterior exposure.
Well done Peter.

A Triffid is what sprung to mind - wrong shape I know but the sense of menace is there. And I love the hanging light. Oh yes, your picture, it's good tooGrin

I love this from an artistic point of view.
There are times when overexposed is right - this is one in my book.
