Shiny twirly thing looks interesting. I like the angle.
David Johnson: Yep, the top thing just twirls around.......yep......thats all......move along now...
Everywhere ought to have one of these!
David Johnson: Could be a sneaky way of getting windfarms into places that don't want them
Shiny and bright, what an intense b&w...
David Johnson: Thanks Florence, hadn't done many b/ws for a while so felt the need to......
Bet it looks bl--dy awful in reality. This on the other hand is the opposite end of the spectrum. richard.
David Johnson: Well it is all coppery bronze and silver......which is a plus point! But has the'Sore thumb' look in reality.

I quite like what they have done to Southport. This is well composed and I like the the pp the blurry glow suites the subject.
David Johnson: I must say I was very suprisd by how'nice' Southport looked, dear god what am I saying almost had a crimplene moment then!
Like the angle on this David, always interested to see other photographers take on these, have to try this angle myself next time i'm town. Good post processing as well.
David Johnson: Ta Les, wandered around this trying not to have a 'face on with the sea in the background' look, the bit in the foreground is some big noticeboard.

Fair enough. I don't suppose much else happens in Southport. Love the treatment David.
David Johnson: I did see the train going down the pier........
