Wow! What a great POV with another bridge gracing the BG. Also love that you captured a pedestrian crossing over. Wonderful! #1498829

Thanks Michelle and Colette. There are actually 2 bridges in the background the white curved one is the millennium bridge which is a footbridge. #10422454

Love the curves and lines Kate - my mother came from Newcastle, (Gateshead) - she did not have the accent but I remember I had trouble understanding the relations #10438298

Thanks Barbara and Nancy! Barbara I adore the Jordie accent. I could fall asleep to it! I put this into our club as a print on matt paper. I was hoping to get at least a 9 out of 10 but got only 8.5. Then I was surprised to get a 10 for my pebbles lodged in rock which I had only expected to get 8 for. So you win some you lose some. Will put that one up here whenever I get my computer back which is in hospital at the moment. Apparently the motherboard has given up. Geoff has just had a brand new fantastic computer so I wasn't planning on having one also. But might have to???!!! Am using the laptop at the moment plus picking up emails on my phone which take for ever to answer on. Will hop over and see if you have any new pics Barbara! #10438374

Taken another look Kate - do you have an idea why you missed out on the points - still a good result. Look forward to seeing the 10. Sorry to hear about the computer, I have recently taken time out to learn my way around the iMac, beginning to enjoy it. Using CS5 now too, love the wider choices in Raw. Oh not sure about my photos - we went to Sydney back in September, instead of taking the big heavy Nikon, I used a Fuji X100 (35 mm format equivalent: 35 mm), it makes you look at the world in a whole different way, not being able to zoom. I think by using it I have learnt a bit about basic photography, but it is quite different. My reason for telling you that is I notice I have still looked at my photos as though they were taken with the Nikon and cropped accordingly, hmmmm - I do love using this camera, very retro looking too, it is not on the list of camera's here at BP so did not mention it, Waiting to have a photo worthy ha ha ha Mr Fuji will love me !!! before I add it to my photos (or BP may add it to their list).
