Are they excavating Moira or is it sinking ?
Great texture and detail Moira. Anlovrly processing. It really seems to be sinking.. Are they excavating because they suspect something interesting underneath or redo the piping etc.?

Had to dig deep for this one, Moira. Wink

I only rarely comment on technicalities, but I must say your processing here is quite super-dooper. Add to that the perfect composition and the quirky content, and Alfred has no choice but to swing into action once again!

That is one very clever shot. Love the processing. At first glance I thought it was a building on the edge of an eroded clifftop!

Thanks to Leo, Bob, Ken, Viola and Alan for the UAs, to everyone who has called in here while we were out, and to Leo for a brilliant cartoon that I have downloaded. Oh and Alan, thanks for the compliment. Smile
Just to explain - out of sight at the top is Market Street. We are standing on a road that runs much lower. This mound of earth will eventually be the foundations for a new apartment block, using the old building's façade. I presume that a fairly substantial retaining wall will be built!!

I hope you didn't sink too far in there, Moira! 😲

The mono conversion draws out the all textures... there is something rather compelling about this image!

Beautifully dark and spooky processing Mrs!

Lovely angle and obviously risked life and limb for your art! Would expect no less! Wink

Award in place.
