Nice one Eric. When I first looked I was not too sure about the composition, the correlation between the scroll and the buildings. But I find the more I study it, the more I like it, it grows on me! Well spotted!
(I have taken a couple of similar shots from the Iron Bridge, it will be interesting to see how they come out when I get my Velvia back).
Click.
Best wishes, George.

This is great - thumbnail did not do its justice. Well composed and great lighting on the buildings.

Great capture Eric, excellent composition. Like it and it brings back memories. I was demobbed in Chester, can't remember too much about it though, the previous evening was a total blank.

Love how you've cleverly used the scrolls as a frame, Eric, and I especially like the light glinting on the metal. Excellent shot.

Excellent, Eric. Love the composition, it really is superb.

I worked as a window dresser in Chester co-op for 7 years when I was a kid...love the place, thanks for the memory.

This really works well. The ironwork is used brilliantly to frame the scene without getting in the way. Subtle lighting... all round good stuff.

I love the idea! The iron work fits the town! (or is the town that fits the iron work?) Well thought and done!

Fantastic comp, bet you had trouble getting the best alignment with the view through the scrollwork! This works really well. Click!

A good perspective on a well covered subject Chester. Streets look deserted. All the rain. A good shot Eric, as gray as the day may have been. john

Excellent work, Eric. The use of the railing as a framing device is really effective and adds interest to what would have been a gray, damp street scene. Nice one.

Thank you Pete, glad you like it. Good to hear from you. Smile

I spent about 15 minitues trying this from various positions, looking at how the scrolled ironwork cut up the scene, trying a tiny step left, a tiny step right, trying a tiny step foreward a tiny step back, trying the 18mm end of the zoom and everything up to the 50mm each time. I decided this was the best I could get. Nice to have my decision confirmed by so many. Smile
24 Oct 2004 1:23PM
Works for me, Eric, what a wonderful bit of railing and double interest with looking beyond.
