Concrete Decay

By woolybill1
The same concrete pillar that appeared in Danny 4 Emma , digitally enhanced to reveal its latent weaknesses....

70mm, 1/30th sec. @ f6.3, ISO 200.

It's the mock exam season so I shan't be around too much today. Apologies in advance.

Fantastic shot. By the way if you turn it into portrait mode it is a gorgeous abstract landscape. A

A nice bit of colour and texture here Bill.You have made a work of art that has to be the most boring material on the planet !! Well,it is a toss up between concrete and plastic perhaps.
Good shot.
