    Aahh, you were on top form (we haven't reached tonight yet in the UK, but for you it will now be last night!). Some of us would offer up thanks to get one of these, far less a whole series.

    I think this is is very much 'your thing' and you at your finest. Not even going to start saying this one's nicer than that one. Pointless. Shall just enjoy.

    Alright, since no one else will, I'll pick specific shots as favorites...

    For me, it really is between #9 and #6.

    I love how each has its own overall color to the scene - #9 with that soft blue light and the bright sky (I know you said it was taken at night, but to me it has the feel of a sunrise shot - that warm yellow sky chasing away the cold blue of night), and #6 with that eerie green glow - almost like a scene out of a horror flick (a good classic suspense horror flick, not a modern hack'em'up flick). I especially like the single bright spot of light in #6, it lends itself to that horror flick feeling... someone out there looking... either as a rescuer or as a pursuing assailant... and you can't be sure if you should go towards it or away from it!

    The one thing I found distracting in #6 is the red spot of light. I just found myself continually glancing over at it and then being disappointed that there really was nothing there to look at.

    (Correction) I guess there two red points of light, and two white points of light. I didn't notice them as well on the smaller views, but found them on the larger views (should have looked at those before commenting!). I'd personally eliminate both red points of light and the smaller of the two white points of light in #6.

    Great series Colin!

    Hi Colin,
    #1 looks a little flat in terms of contrast at the bottom two thirds to me.
    The rest are at your usual standard (read: technically extraordinary well! )

    What do you think of a little contrast boost:

    Sunderland indeed!! (Sunder means Beautiful in Hindi)
    Thats an awesome series, Colin. At fist glance I too didn't really like the first image but then clicked on it & viewed the larger version. It looked outstanding.
    I love the tones & sillhoutes.

    Thanks Donald,

    I've been doing a lot of "talk the talk" recently, and so thought it time I reminded the punters that I can still "walk the walk" as well! (in any case, after my virus last week, I'm happy just to be standing up again!).
