Thanks for the comment Karma. I hadn't thought of a Dracula connection but the sky is almost a blood red! Best wishes... #753733

I really like the illuminated clock. It gives a sense hope against the Draculanian (Is that a word?) sky. #754353

Paul Conlan September 03, 2004

Sounds like a good word to me! You make an interesting observation about the clock. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes... #754460

Brilliant image Paul. Nice silhouette and sunset colours. I like all the small details in your shot, the clockface for one and the fact you can see through the window is nice too.

On a side note, if you have the know how, if you could clone out the antenna I think the image would be even stronger.

Good work all the same, well done! #755935

Paul Conlan September 04, 2004

Darren... Thank you for your comments and suggestion. I considered cloning out the antenna but then thought they added sort of a hi-tech contrast to the older dome. I thought they also added some to the composition of the image... but wasn't really sure. So... I've done it without them as well. So please let me know what you think. I'd welcome thoughts from anyone including those who commented earlier. Thanks!
