You are a magician of words and images. When we look at them, after being skillfully put together, our concerns disappear; we stare at them in awe.
Lucile, I have no words to reply when you write things like that, a simple thank you is not enough…
A thank you says a lot too! 🙂
Enjoy the precious moments. Intensely. Cheers.
Hey Andy, very cool post.
Thank you, it’s quite a coll and edgy place….
the quotes that render you speechless…such a good one, Andy.
Thank you, as always, Lois!
Great photo! I love gritty urban shots. So much more interesting than a sunset.
Thank you Michelle, I am a huge fan of urban grit, glad you liked it!
Like the image AND the quote.Cool.
Thank you Steven, more to come from this location very soon…
Very gritty and striking, as always I expect nothing less from you 🙂 xx
Thank you Justine, expect to see more from this place, and there are some even grittier aspects to come…
yay sounds good to me x
I love this post. The image is fantastic and the poetry perfect. I am a big fan of Analog Efex Pro. Nice treatment of this image, Andy.
Thank you Jane, the original image was lack lustre in terms of colour and tone, I love what you can do with Analog Efex Pro. And thanks for liking my words, I’ve been trying to write more recently so it’s great that you like it.
This pic reminds me of Sherlock Holmes movie. The London skyline was depicted in this manner. Are you Sherlock Holmes ?? 😉
very thought-provocative post again, Andy… and I love the point of view of the shot, soaring up high there.. sometimes we need to get the whole picture and not just stare at details… or we may never know the answers…
Thank you Alexandra as always…
…and sometimes we try so hard to see the whole picture… and then discover the answer is right in front of us, in plain sight…
Very moody and gritty; love it!
Thank you again! More to come from this spot…
The processing gives this image a surreal intensity. Love it.
Thanks for the prompt about Analog Efex Pro 2, Andy. I have The Nik Collection but wasn’t aware that Analog was now added to the set…….wonderful…….now downloaded.
My pleasure, enjoy! I’m having a problem a the moment because I accepted an upgrade and now each time I load it tells me that I need to purchase the software within 15 days. I did purchase it, in full, some time ago, and this isn’t the first time this has happened…so need to figure out why this time.
Look forward to seeing what you do with it!
Thank you John, the views were impressive, the day was overcast and dull, so I wanted to make the image stand out a little more, glad you like it!
I’ve now updated ny Nik software, thanks to you, and looked at it last night. Very impressive……I needed something new to get my teeth into….thanks Andy.
Excellent! I hope you don’t experience the problem I’m having since I accepted an upgrade…
Look forward to seeing how you use the filters John.
