Urban Portraitscape

By MrsS    
Right folks, who's going to win our bet???

I was over in Leeds for a few days, trying to bring a speedy end to the SATs marking (!!!) so I joined up with Richard and Les for a spot of togging, and Ade for a well deserved curry (we walked over 5 miles Richard!) and happily clicked away round Leeds City Centre for a while.

At our very first stop, I spotted this chap, oblivious to the world, chatting on his mobile, and I liked the juxtaposition of him and the street light (and anyway, Ade has done all the usual Leeds stuff!!)

Thought the lighting was quite nice, yes I know his shirt is a tad blown, but I don't mind that, as I really wanted it to stand out Smile

Anyway, see what you think - - have a great Monday night - - off out for a meal tonight, having been away from home for nearly a week Smile

Catch up later, thanks for taking time to call in Smile

Been waiting for this Fran, looks every bit as good as seen on the back of your camera and it really works well.
Thanks for your time last week enjoyed it the hike around Leeds chasing that light.

Thanks R M, Lee, Les, David & Peter Smile

It was fun, wasn't it, Les. Only realised after that Beth's phone has a pedometer thingy on it, so that's how I know how far we went Smile

Cheers All!

This is great. I like all the vertical and horizontal lines, the metallic blue, the way you have utilized the lamp and, of course, your "oblivious" man.

You need to tell us what the bet is - and between who before we can start to answer your question.

Good to see you back by the way
Beautiful image Fran, great candid and a fine composition. The colour adds a lot to this already wonderful deep image, well spotted.

Hi Fran - so finally finished the marking. Hope you have now ordered your lens!
As Lez said been waiting for this one to see what happens.
Well captured and processed.
Think it was worth the walking!
Regards Richard.
