Taken with my new toy the Canon S95. This enables me to point and shoot whilst travelling around the suburbs of Leeds instead of carrying a large DSLR with all the equipment in the cab. This was taken from a run down area (Holbeck) Leeds. Its looking towards the regenerated city centre. Many thanks for all your comments and votes on my previous upload, they are all taken onboard as I shoot and learn. Maybe with this little toy I will be posting more images but not making any promises Smile

Nice shot of an area I recognised instantly. A touch of rotation before adding the border and title would have made it perfect!

Thanks Garathe, however I believe the building on the right is causing an optical illusion that can mislead the eye and make it look slanted, infact I did check it as well and found it to be slightly out before using the alignment tool in P.S. trust me Smile

Yes I also know this area rather well, as I have frequented the now demolished L.A Bowl bowling alley in previous years. Great VP and I like the comparison Bob. Well presented with a nice moody sky too m8 Wink

Hi Robert
Nice to see you back, great capture but V2 stands out for the great tones.

A super urban landscape, good composition. Both versions work well, maybe the bw has the edge.

Enjoy your new toy.

Nicely balanced urban shot, Bob: excellent detail and colours with your new "toy" ands with which I hope you capture many more such. My preference lies with V 1.

Both excelleent images of this scene. V2 is beautifully presented but for me, it is as almost always the colour version. Wonderful shapes in some of those old structures which I hope they intend retaining. Great clarity and detail in these shots and I think you've a great future with your new "toy"!

Very nice shot Bob. I like the mono version, think it suits the shot, but both very good. Moira

Hi Bob, Great shot, glad your back, i love these small cameras, was given panasonic tz10 for my 70th birthday , very handy, it has macro and micro macro for butterflies etc, and was half the cost of a macro lens for my nikon, regards gray.

I have flicked from V1 to V2 50 times at least - I almost gave myself a ticking off for "zapping" as men seem apt to do with the TV remote control!

Just love this. An image of real everyday. And I still cannot decide on V1 or 2 and if I could would vote for both.

Great comp and detail - I hope we see more of your wonderful work because every one you upload is so special.

An appropriate title.
I recall an incident when a builder was asked to construct a new bridge by demolishing the old brick bridge of British era. He told the authority that,"I can't guarantee the new one would last as the old one did ". And eventually both are existing till to day.

What a wonderful toy? to carry around with you . Wouldn't be without my G11 . A new City rising out of the Dust . Both good images but I prefer Version 2 a wonderful moody sky . The mono brings out the buildings xx
