    Quote:Fun, strong image. If your software allows, I'd suggest skewing a little bit to correct vertical lines, then a crop off a bit from the top, a bit more from the right, in order to give a neater 'frame'. Even the crop on its own would give this more impact.

    Yes you are right, this is straight from the camera, just wanted to post it as I liked it that much. Will work on it later and resub. Thanks for your time.

  • Bee on Purple

    Quote:The flower is Verbena bonariensis. Butterflies, hoverflies and bees all adore these, so with luck you'll get lots more chances to capture visitors to them! Like the dof and the colours ,,, not to forget, the bee.


    I knew some knowledgable person would tell me the flower type, as it was taken on my way home from Sheffield Station, don't know if I'll get another chance.

    But thanks for the nice comments and votes guys.

    Yes Truly Brilliant. Had to look a few times as a thumbnail, but what great imaginative painting, well thought out, well composed.

    A definite vote from me.

  • Architectural Abstract

    Great shot of "The Cheese Grater", been wanting to get round to taking shots of this, but beaten to it again. Great angle. BTW. A definite vote from me.

  • Tinsley Towers

    Yes a real sad day for our cities history.

    Well photograhed, the clouds and lorry make the shot IMHO.

    Nice shot, the image jumped out at me, seemed familiar, as a Sheffielder It was confirmed when I checked the details. Some great shots in your portfolio.

  • Abbey Art Stone

    Yes the 40th was a ittle busy, I gave it a miss. but a good shot, recognised the title. Well shot, and great composition.

  • The Warden

    Quote:Well captured, I was there on Sunday and it was extremely busy, but great day.

    Yes we went Sunday, this year, usually go Saturday, but it was a lot busier than previous years IMHO.

  • Balls

    Maybe a different angle is required, think the Novotel hotel on the right is distracting. The arch of the Winter Gardens (not a Shopping Centre ade_mcfade, I'm a proud Sheffielder so just have to correct people Smile ) should be the main focus or the fountains not both as ade_mcfade says. Maybe the night shot would be better, think like everything else we photograph, you're looking for that little difference. Just my opinion though.

  • Same Picture, Different Version!!!

    Another "Good Un", the toning is great. Thsi would make a great poster IMHO. Keep up the Great Work.

  • Urbis Re-worked

    Glad to be of service Robin, it's all good in the long run, the more we can inspire others is what this type of site is all about IMHO.

    Thanks for the comments all.

  • Lowry Bridge @ Night

    Thanks for the comments guys. Simon, the sky wasn't blue when the sun was out, let alone at dusk (it was Manchester after all Smile ).

  • Olive Oil

    Great shot, I too got the mag (Today) and thought the technique needed trying, you've done a good job. Maybe if you'd used a beer bottle you may have fooled us Smile.


    p.s. Please note the smiley I am joking.

  • The madonna

    Great looking girl, great shot, lighting is lovely, but the frame in the top distracts, the dado rail (presume that's what it is) doesn't just my opinion though.

  • Cats Eyes

    Ta for the comments guys, good job she was busy watching the birds in our garden. Smile

  • Grey frame

    Looks like a Tram Bridge to me ??? Smile

    Nice moody shot though.

  • Abandoned

    An outstanding image, really well done and stood out as a thumbnail. Loading the full image I thought it was a real model, make up and all, but then I read your info, and wow created in a programme, fantastic.

    Images like this amaze me, I've done drawings of cyborgs but never created one on a computer, must look up the prog.

    Gets my vote.

  • British Champions 08

    Yet another cracker, what else did I expect, well shot, well caught, spot on sharpness. It's just a pity IMHO that it was shot against the advertisements on that side of the rink.

    But of course still gets my vote.
    • 14 Jan 2008 12:41PM
  • howarth

    Yes a recongnisible shot, jumped out at me. Always good to see the KWVR. The way the line inclines slightly at Howarth always makes the shot look like it needs straightening, but of course it doesn't.

    It looked like an OK day to say that it was New Years Day??

  • Corn Exchange, Leeds

    Yes a great shot of a great iconic Leeds building. I heard they are not going to turn it into the Food Mall, but are looking at leaving it as is??

    It looks better now it's cleaned up and the lights added to the roof, than it did in the early days, just love the building and I'm from Sheffield Smile

    Gets my vote as well.

  • Forward to stars

    We'll let you off the mispelling of Yuri Smile

    Great shot, though, great framing of a great Soviet Hero.

    Why have I got the Pet Shop Boys singing Go West in my brain ?????????????

    Vote from me.
