Superb shot indeed! Perspective & light are ace. Is it an HDR?
David Johnson: Cheeky monkey, I have been known to resort to hdr when the magic wand is not enough but this is just Levels and History brush, probably my most used techniqe

Excellent shot. I need a wide angle lens to better imitate your work!
David Johnson: See how easy plagiarism rears its ugly head, plenty of crummy alleys to get your teeth into in these parts...just watch out for the boogie men.
Stunning shot. It wouldn't be nearly as god without the woman. She really makes it.
Great processing compliments the shot.
David Johnson: Kept saying to myself,'Please someone,please' blow me someone did, but then reallised I had the camera set at 1/30th so then bit of a panic over blur.

Great perspective and timing to capture the woman walking ... Well done !!!
David Johnson: Not the kind of place to hang about, if you can make out the graphitti on the wall...sort of an unveiled warning to folks..
I remember lurking on back alleys like this, wouldn't dare to linger now though. Timed well to catch someone striding past.
David Johnson: And I didnt have to lurk for long!

Great shot David. How long did you sit there waiting for someone to go past?
David Johnson: I used to get lost taking the kids to the Aqua centre wave thingy...this took about a minute!

Cracking shot David.
David Johnson: Cheers mate, skin blistered out in the wilds of Derbyshire today so unusually for me I have the odd classic landscape snap to fiddle with...could be fun

What do you call these places round your way? Is this a ginnel or an alley or a close? And how long did you have to lurk down there until your subject appeared? It's a great capture.
David Johnson: These are back alleys although I havn't yet seen any front alleys but when I lived in Blackpool they were called back passages!!!!!!!

superb Davidsmile
David Johnson: Lucky moment
Excellent shot.
David Johnson: Ta mate.
Great perspective Maxy, your edge burning creates a powerful vortex effect. The figure crosses the T.
David Johnson: Cheers old son, hows the Solaris thing working out?????

it would be a good picture without the figure in the distance but add that too and this has to go in my likeys!
David Johnson: A likey jeepers, do I get a present or something.
Excellent timing, tonal range and perspective.

Fantastic shot - love the way the brickwork zooms out of the screen, the razor-wire, and the figure perfectly central at the end.
