Or as Berthold Lubetkin once put it...

"There are only four kinds of artistic activity: fine art, music, poetry and ornamental pastry cooking, of which architecture is a minor branch."

Personally I reckon you need more of the front one in focus.

Nice quote....

Thanks, Barry... tried various focus shifts.....see what you mean, but I'm a sucker for that softness in focus and tone that is big in all the lifestyle/food mags at the mo....

Fed up with the Japanese architecture already?

I can just see this in a food or homes mag. Very natural and lifestyley, as you say.

I think 6 clicks is a good effort for this sort of thing being uploaded on baking hot Saturday. I'm only here 'cos I'm at work, don't know about anyone else...
