Salford Quays

By jeni
Not sure what these buildings are called, but they are apartments at Salford Quays. Taken in September last year, i really like the mono version, moreso than the colour. I think it gives a feel of a Mediteranean holiday complex, on the beach almost!

Hi Jeni, love the composition, I feel there’s a little too much contrast, some people might like the effect but the sky is a bit too dark, did you use a polarizing filter?

Looks like a collection of Burj al Arab hotels! Yes, very Med-ish, or at least somewhere other than Salford. Agree the sky might be a tad dark, but what do I know. I like it.

The dark sky immediately caught my attention. I like it too.

Went there 2 weeks ago and it looks like a mini Dubai with all the construction going on,

I like this and I like the dark sky as is does contrast well with the lightness of the buildings. The only thing I'd be tempted to do would be to correct the verticals on the buildings at either end Smile

Cheers, Sean
