    Beijing Window

    Would the powers that be consider having a board for travel photography. I think it would be well used.
    Any more windows anyone. I have:).

    Nice triptych there, Tom!

    So, you want a Theme? I'm sure we can all chip in. I'll have a look later.

    To my limited knowledge Rob this may not be classified as a triptych as this is all one image and not split. Correct me if I'm wrong though.
    I hadn't actually thought of a Theme to be honest Rob but you are right. I'll pick it all up eventually:). Maybe I should have stuck this in the Theme section below then. Can the Mods do this?

    The mods are rockers! They can do anything!

    That is a dirty window and a half production right there, Tom. I like that you kept it dark and subdued.

    You can't beat a dirty window filter! What a great / obscured view Tom. The vertical streaks and vertical lines of the buildings works very well as do the muted tones. Nice.

    Would you like this thread moved to Themes and turned into one?

    haha, i like the dirty window filter. we should all get one of those. i like the panes dividing up the scene, really like a scene within a scene.

    I think that would be best Peter and thank you. Hopefully others with windows, clean or dirty, will join in.

    Pete, Beth, Paul
    Than you for taking the time to have a look. Much appreciated. I really tried to convey how miserable these high rises can sometimes look, particularly in dirty weather.

    The Slaughterhouse

    Posted before but just to add to the theme.

    Thanks for the smooth transition Pete.
    The mixture of blur and dirt add an eerie feel to this. Slaughterhouse is a horrible sounding word indeed and we can only interpret for the worse.

    Typical BT. A right old mess but providing a good photo opportunity. Well seen Rob.
    Hope there's more where that came from:)

    Hill St. is full of interest Rob. I particularly enjoyed the shots that included the old cobbles which reflected and formed a sort of extension of the brickwork in the walls.
    Hope we can open more windows in this thread.
    Anyway, another one for now; I like the bit of net curtain stuck to the outside of the middle pane. Some evidence of BT as well:).

    I've been told that there is a mathematical relationship between the cobbles, bricks, stones and roof tiles throughout Edinburgh's New Town district.

    Love the net curtain!
