The shame about this shot is that it actually suffers for being desaturated. You need the colours to make sense of the picture as the greys of (I assume) HMS Belfast would then be nicely separated from the colours of the architecture and the sky.

I think I understand what you were going for here but there are just so many lines and angles that the result is very difficult to 'read' as a picture.

Would really like to see the colour version, though.

nice comparison, walked past it so many times never looked at it from this angle.

Thanks for the comments Smile

I did try it in colour Jools, but it really didn't seem to work - I didn't think the sky was strong enough at the time to stand out well enough. I may try and enhance the colour version at some point, or failing that, try the shot again on a better day. Thanks for looking Smile
