There was a big event going on at Greenwich a while ago and I saw this chap looking over the fence. What I liked was the way his leg poked through and broke, but also kind of added to, the symmetry of the fencing.

This was a photograph I took whilst testing out my Fuji X10 not long after I had bought it. Originally it had a lot of cloud which, when I looked at it, felt that it was not bringing anything to the party so- I cut it. Severely. And, I'm glad I did because the original was one of those y'know...it's okaaaay kind of shots but once I'd chopped out the top lump of uninteresting cloud, I was left with a much more of a 'grabber' shot (I think).
Why not go back over some of your old shots and see if a bit of heavy duty cropping doesn't give them a new lease of life.

At first glance this may appear to be just the interior of a church and, to be honest, you wouldn't be wrong if you'd have said that. But, I think that if you look at it for a second or two it has a kind of depth to it and I'm trying to figure out why. I'm not sure if is the apparent contrast or the slight shadow work in the eaves that give a feeling of depth. Hmmmm.

I was having a bit of a walkabout on the shore of a river/estuary the other day when I saw this ....thing. I have no idea as to what it is but I'm assuming that it came out of one of the nearby abandoned/wrecked boats. If anybody knows what it is, do me a favour and drop me a line.
It's driving me mental.

Hanks is apparently the most famous guitar shop in London. I kinda remembered this place from when I was a kid with dreams of being the next Eric Clapton. It would have helped a bit if I could have played like him I suppose, but.... there's only one Clapton.
The processing on this image was simple enough. I black and whited the base layer, added a texture on the top, changed the blend mode layer to screen (I think), took a soft brush and gently painted out a few bits. Dead Simple my son.
