    Bradford, West Yorkshire. Once immensely wealthy. Now unfortunately suffering from the economic decline although its demise predates that. Some lovely buildings around though.

    Both are shot on the Panny G2 with the Oly 9-18. Then played around with the single shot exposures and run them through Photomatix. I like 'em but I guess others will feel that their eyes are bleeding. Chacun à son goût.

    Beautifully framed and shot to be sure, but yes that's a pretty heavy editing hand. They're almost paintings now! Still, such great subject material, that's really interesting to see.

    I rather like them, I think the processing adds to the definition of the architectural merits, so there:rolleyes:
