Leeds Town Hall

By ade_mcfade      
Well it's that huge victorian edifice in Leeds again - when the trees loose their leaves, i can just about see if from my desk 6 miles away Smile

this is my birthday shot and the last one for a few days as I'm off to take in a bit of Gaudii architecture in Barcelona later today.

well it's a HDR of 3 shots taken with the mighty tandberg a fortnight ago. Striaghtened up a little to get rid of the convergeing verticals, then added a sepia layer and meddled to make the yellow stand out but loose some colour elsewhere.

less Blade Runner, more "heavy recession" - so don't think this will be being given to any presidents as good will gifts Smile

Happy Birthday Ade, this is again a stunning image, could be nice to get some golden leaves in the foreground when like you said the trees loose their leaves. Well I guess there prob wont be trees around this area, is there?

Anyway enjoy the Birthday break
