    Well I think this pretty much sums up the AREA I live and work in. Concrete, Towers, and Puddles.

    5pts if anyone can tell me where this was taken.....

    If you can Ross, try to comment on some of the others shots. You might not be able to on every one, but in the end it`s good to give and receive :)

    That's part of The Barbican isn't it Ross?
    If so, you've caught the colours of the towerblock well, and it's interesting the way that the gaps in the paving blocks are far darker where the reflection is.
    Good start to your 52 :)

    Oh, and as Dave says, you've got the linkys sussed first go. Top Banana.

    Good idea for the theme and it makes an interesting image, slight nit-pick is the "block" top-right but certainly gets your 52 off to a good start.

    Yea. That has annoyed me too. The more i moved around and reframed, the more appeared in the shot. It's quite a clustered set of buildings. That was the least I could get in the shot. Im happy with it anyway. I've been trying to get a decent puddle reflection shot for a while now.

    Hi Ross ...I like this one a lot, excellent idea and it works really well, must admit I would have been tempted to clone that bit out top right, but a great start, looking forward to your thread.

    Round your area - off to a good start with your first image in the bag so to speak, great reflection and the detail in the block paving and the tower is very good.

    Very clever shot, I like that.As said, the block top right needs to go, but otherwise all is good.

    Docklands maybe ?

    Welcome aboard, Ross, and I hope you enjoy your 52. You're off to a good start with a different take on the theme, which certainly sets the urban scene with that reflection and the tiles on the ground. Nice one (y)

    Hi Ross

    Great start, it plays with your mind a bit this one. Well it does mine anyway, feels like its upside down somehow, think its the paving that does it. I like how the lines are darker on the building but think I would have cloned out the odd brick. Look forward to seeing more :D

    Week 1 - Gate(d)

    I must say I found this one difficult. Everything I shot just came out a bit 'meh'.

    But it got me out at least 3 times in the week taking pictures so that can only be a good thing.

    Good subject nicely done and good that it got you out shooting, that's the main reason I do it, sometimes you have to compromise to get a shot in on time but not in this case, spot on for the theme.

    Well what can I say about your gate shot :D, agree with the said comments. I really do like this gate shot, two clear padlocks on the gate, great focus and lighting and good dof too Ross, so well done (y)(y)

    Nice job with the editing for your week 0 shot. There is nothing that I can see to give it away.
    I'm not sure that you've got the best out of teh shot. I quite like it, but think I may have gone with an instgram square crop, concentrating on the lock, maybe keeping a little of the latch mechanism in too.
    Worth a play to see methinks :)

    Two padlocks; to be sure to be sure. Nice out-of-focus background.

    Gate(d) - I agree that is a nice old wonky looking gate and with the nice OOF background it just helps to make the old gate stand out, nice work.

    Well... if we are all truthful we all get a lot of 'Meh' images for each theme :D

    What you have put in is a real nice shot, liking the close in focus and the shallow DoF, lovely rusty meatal and a background curve that sweeps through the image nicely too, not much top dislike :)

    Really appreciate the comments folks. I followed some of your 52s last year and it was really inspiring, so to hear you guys say nice stuff about some of my pictures is a massive compliment.

    So as a thank you, here are a couple more from this week that didn't quite make the cut. I think more.... good ideas that i didn't quite pull off.

    Thanks

    I like it too good DoF and a good worn gate, a nice image


    we seem to have posted at the same time and of the other images the second B+W pic is very nice a bit more contrast maybe would help but it appeals to me
