Wales Millennium Centre
Wide-angle view of the Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay. Processed with Color Efex Pro, making into something approaching a "day for night" effect.
Two Hearts Beat As One

Known to many as the Torchwood Tower, the water feature at Cardiff Bay is a popular subject.
Seen while out for a walk on a cold morning
Middlesbrough's Transport Bridge is currently being repainted and generally restored. But this reflected view appealed to me more...
Seen at Chester Zoo.
Shadow of railings, processed in Lightroom, B&W conversion in Silver Efex Pro
This is the Sage Music Centre in Gateshead, taken with a Samyang 8mm f/2.8 fisheye lens on my Fujifilm X-E1. The lens is manual focus and doesn't report the manually set aperture to the camera, which is why the EXIF data isn't strictly accurate.This version has had a small piece of the Tyne Bridge removed using Photoshop, general adjustments with Lightroom, and a very slight vignette added with Perfect Effects.
Inspired by re-reading Terry Pratchett's "Small Gods"!

The Tyne Bridge looming out of the mist. A personal favourite.
Using the arch as a natural frame was planned, the bird was un unexpected bonus.

Northumbria University Bridge
Looks like he's been standing there a little too long.
An early experiment with the 50mm lens at maximum aperture. Over exposed, but there's something about the people's legs that gives it a strange feeling that I like. I'm odd like that :-)
Take us to your leader!
What? They're not visiting aliens?
Fancy a drink?
Detail of the drinking fountain in the Bigg Market, Newcastle. I hadn't previously noticed how fierce the lions looked - enough to put people off drinking the water and send them into the nearest pub... Taken with the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens, minimal processing done in Lightroom 1.2. Best viewed large.

Cathedral Railings in sepia
I think I like it...
Lovely summer's day
Playing with the Sigma 10-20mm lens again. A brighter day might have been better, but never mind....
A little bit of adjustment later....
