    Quote:A stunning sight to see these wonderful boats moving around the loch. Sadly one we don't see to open now.


    The weekend this photograph was taken, the Loch Lomond Steam Ship Company managed to fire up the boilers and for the first time in 40 odd years, turned over her engines and paddles. Her days of returning to steam and sailing round the loch are getting closer.

    Quote:Is this a memorial for,people who'have died from exposure to asbestos?

    Peter



    I think it's a memorial to the people of Clydebank who all suffered and died as a result of Asbestosis while working in the shipyards.

    Thank you all for the comments. They are very much appreciated.
    I have uploaded an unedited jpeg copy of the original RAW file.

    It does seem there are some post processing issues - the glare from the mosque dome isn't in the original.
    The colours aren't quite right but I wasn't too concerned about it. Although having had a wee tinker about, The colour balance definitely needs to be changed..
    I agree with the crop to remove the light from the mosque. Had swithered about where to crop, but eventually came to the same conclusion as the modified one above.
    Shooting at this time of year when there is more light in the sky starts to bring out some of the less desirables of Glasgow.
    This was shot in February at 0240 just after I finished work. I took one exposure really as a 'I must go back there when warmer' kind of record shot. Temperature outside was -4 deg and I wasn't really wanting to hang around and play with exposures too much as I knew could recover some of it when I got home. Once uploaded I was a wee bit more pleased with the result and thought it might work.

    It was taken handheld. Had been out all day in Edinburgh. Came through to Glasgow on last train and along with the pouring rain was too tired to unpack the tripod. Hadn't really intended to take photo's in Glasgow but in the end I couldn't resist. I took two or three all handheld and regret now I didn't use my tripod.

    Thanks for the comments. It's great how you work on an image for hours, then upload the wrong version....duh!

    I've got another one with the lens correction applied and then go and upload the wrong version.

    This is a blend of two images, which were taken without the use of a tripod. Quite pleased with the result.

    Thank you for your comments.
    Dudler, I swithered with the crop you suggested and tried the crop as you have done and also the original. I felt with taking off the half arch, took the other arch too close to the edge and it bothered me somewhat. I went back and forward with it several times but swayed more to the original. Your crop has the overhead catenary poles snipped out and it was these that really pushed my decision.
    I appreciate what you've said about the horizon lines through the arch. To be honest, I never noticed until I processed the image. I took a whole series of images that night as the lights came on. The camera and tripod was in position before the sunset and the lights came on to get the best position. The camera couldn't have gone any lower due to a steel fence and it couldn't go higher because at the time, although it looks calm was actually blowing a fairly strong wind and putting the tripod extension higher would have meant sacrificing some steadiness.

    Pamelajean - The water behind the bridge was only tweeked a little. Just selectively dropped the expose by a very small margin. But the colour is as was on the evening.

    Lovely image. The trees have grown somewhat since the last time I tried a shot similar to this. A wee bit of pruning would help.

    Fantastic photo, both versions. Colour version just edges it.

  • Leading to the light

    Thanks. Does make a bit of a difference. Had wondered about a tighter crop, but ended up putting the green light back in. Just felt it added a bit to the balance of the piture, but having seen your cropped version, I think it is better now to have the green light out.
