    These are nice images and raise some nostalgia for me, reminding me of a happy six months I spent in Dundee many years ago.

    Number 3 looks to me as though it needs straightening.

    I think #3 and #7 are lovely images. I also like image #6 for the perspective, perhaps more so with the bottom dark portion cropped out..

    Been following your threads with interest. The biggest challenge is trying to do something different with this big hunk of iron that hasn't been done a thousand times before. The bog-standard shot of the bridge is easy from either North or South Queensferry is easy. But what you have done is starting to 'see' differently and look for the creative shot that makes a picture, not just the postcard snapshot. Good on you.

    I've tried as well and have posted some up here in the past. They're included in a gallery on my own website, here. You're welcome to have a look to see if it gives you any more ideas.

    Thanks Donald,
    This is the first lot of shots I've taken, fotr posting here, since coming back. Its been good to hear feedback for some of my earlier work, and hopefully I'm learning from it and will incorporate the learning in future work.

    2,3 and 7 get away from the standard shot. I think 3 being the favourite.
