Leeds Town hall, what a splendid building this must of looked when it was built in the1850's I think , all those columns stone were they meant to represent the pillars of society , still Leeds is now a city yet they call this a town hall , still it's a nice piece of architecture shame about the so called pillars of society though as these days ,it seems as though their in it for their own gain and not for the good of the community , which I dare say applies to most councils these days , and certainly the so called MP's

Ah yes Gwynn. memories of my first DSLR wedding shoot (my wife's cousin got married there a few years ago). An iconic building, nicely captured Sir.

Could I offer a little constructive comment?
If you reduce the Radius and / or Strength in your HDR software, the white halo effect will be reduced.
Also, a tweak of Lens Correction (made manually) can eliminate / redcue teh converging verticals and the feel of the building falling backwards. If oyu expand the Canvas beyond it's original size, you'll reduce the risk of losing thte extremities of the building prior to cropping.

Hope this helps. But gotta say, you've had some great shots from your visit to Leeds.
Best regards, Brian.

A wonderful image Gwynn, however with a few adjustments here and there it could be a cracker.

An excellent capture. I see now where Bolton got the idea from.

I see from the clock and the time on your camera that the two were in synchronicity. I know it's Leeds, but it is a good shot. I remember that building with horror, had to pass it for every exam I had to sit in Leeds.

A nice architectural shot here, possibly needs a bit of straightening but good to see the whole building.

Looks like it's about to collapse, GwynnTongue!
Brian is right, of course. You take some great pictures, so it's worth giving them a little TLC.
Also, adding some canvas to the top would prevent the tip of the clock tower from touching the frame edge.
The birds to the right of the clock are too small to be recognisable as birds and therefore look like spots in the sky, so I'd clone them out.
I hope you don't mind me pointing out these little things.
