A good and varied set of images, Andrew. The first is perfect for the theme as it shows most of the gate, lots of canal and is well framed by the arch, but the second would be my pick - your processing has really brought out lots of details and textures
Week 0 - That is very atmospheric. Know the bridge but would not have thought of a night time long exposure.
Week 1 - Of the lot I prefer the second one for the subtle colours. There do seem to be a lot of works going on on the T&M this winter and getting in the way of my shots too.
Looks like you were clocked
Good straight horizontal horizon, but if you had been able to drop down a little, it wouldn't have passed through the chap's head.
Nicely balanced shot though and a nice contrast of the red coats against the pale winter blue.
Thank you We were waiting around for a quiet pier and I needed a "people shot", although it looks like there were just 2 people, unfortunately, that wasn't the case - apart from people walking in some fairly ropy weather there was also several photographers milling around
I don't like taking photos of people either so you did well to get this couple in an interesting location and with a pair of such well-dressed dogs! I think the dogs' coats add important splashes of bright colour in this one.
Stark is excellent for the theme; an ideal scene well processed
