    Here are one or two pictures to show what a beautiful city Chester is when the sun shines. I just never get out enough with my camera. :(

    Hi Dave,
    Love the second shot! 8) High drama in the sky and delicious tonal variations lower down. Nicely balanced. Would've loved number four better if you could have cropped out the telephone pole and the bicycler...

    Cheers,

    Its a hobby well worth getting in to, and goes with aquascaping quite well. Once you really get in to it, you find yourself spending huge amounts of money on glass, just like aquascaping. :lol:

    You are right about that telephone pole ,Clive. It does nothing for the picture.

    Thanks for the comments people.

    Here is the cropped version in full technicolor.

    ha ha, sunshine sheilas!

    Cracking photos Dave, it's amazing that the colour and B&W ones are the same photo. The B&W one is quite moody and dramatic and the colour version is completely the opposite. Love your work.

    That`s why I like B+W so much. I like moody, grimy pictures. I always remember the work by a guy called Don McCullin.
