A wonderfully observed, composed and crafted image Derek. Great tonal range, and a wonderful feeling of movement coming through as I look towards the heavens of the composition.

Polished to perfection Derek you do these so well, they look like 5x4 work not a wee camera, but as always it's the photographer not the camera that produces the image.

I still struggle to think of something so small as a 'proper' camera. Which is daft because the quality of the images it produces are very good.

I've been looking for one of these black and white architectural shots during my GE stint Smile
Super lines, curves, diagonals and that sky above - looks like maybe a slow shutter speed to get the movement? Really like this.

Silver Efex is just superb for mono conversions. I don't remember what I did before I got the software.

It's a striking composition Derek, I can't work out if the glass on the left hand building is suffering from noise or it's a type of glass.

A little bit special is this one Derek.

Joel who? Julia Anna who?..... OK in the spirit of Lance Armstrong I have to confess that I may have come across their work recently WinkWinkWink. In fact if NickW reads this a wry smile may cross his face as he introduced me to their websites.

Nowt wrong with a little direction from some masters, I think I pointed Nick towards Julia Anna's work after like you he pointed me in Joel's direction. That's the good thing about sharing info.

Yep! You've certainly nailed this Derek. This is the best example I've ever seen from this location and I'm just a bit green with envy that I didn't beat you to it Wink Absolutely stunning, and if I can get anything half as decent as this, I'd come home very happy. Congratulations and well done.

As I mentioned above I was only recently introduced to Joels work by Nick Walton (NickW). I really love his images.
