I've never paused long enough in Pudsey to notice this, but that's pretty cool.
The processing and subject matter are really good.
Cool to get technique 1 out of the way in week 1.
Personally, I would clone out the lamppost and treetops (or crop to remove them, whichever you're happier with), but your image / your choice.
Thank You. I actually did consider getting shot of the lamp post but thought it fit in with the cenotaph and the Cenotaph Christmas light to make a trio of subjects. You're spot on with the tree tops though. Schoolboy error!
Well spotted, David. That looks like the gloomy weather here today but it seems to add to the sombre subject matter. I agree with Tim about cropping the trees at the bottom but I can see why you left the other post on the left hand side. You're off to a good start
Agree on the cloning of the extra objects, I know colour pop is overused but see limited potential for B&W conversion with the poppy??? remaining coloured. I don’t know if it’s possible with the angle and you need a higher vantage point, is there any way to capture the statue through the outlined figure?
The walk up to the stadium on match day to Valley Parade, home of Bradford City Football Club. The pain often outweighs the pleasure but there have been a good share of pleasurable causes of celebration in the 42 years since my first game against Hereford United in Division 4 (Old Money)
Great shot! And wow! What a coincidence! I am from Bradford myself. Allerton to be exact. Ex Rhodesway School. But that was a long time ago. I actually left in 86, the year after the fire. I used to go and watch City quite a lot.
That looks vaguely like the walk to our local ground, Brentford (except not enough pubs )
It's hard to say for certain, but there is something nagging me that the shot isn't quite level (I think it's the roof of the build with ICES in the signage).
Quite a dark satanic look the the buildings. It talks of the industrial north to me.
Nice take on the theme! Not in to football, but I used to live on the same street as the Lincoln Imps stadium and I can definitely empathise with the pleasure (and pain...) that it brings. Guessing by the lack of people that this wasn't game day?!
