Taken on a walkabout Glasgow a few weeks ago. I thought there might be a shot there somewhere but back in the darkroom I had to crop significantly to get what I wanted, hence the lovely grain Smile Taken on a Nikon and Vivitar Series 1 35-85 varifocal lens.

Your crop has produced a very satisfactory composition, Michael, and the grain doesn't detract from the image at all. I am delighted with the print, even more so that it is a local (to me) scene.
Alex.

Well cropped, Michael, the composition work very well indeed and the grain in no way distracts, I like it, but then again I like nice grain

Thanks Alex and Richard, appreciate the comments. I dodged the lower part a little just to get some detail there - otherwise a straight print.

What a good photograph. For those who don't know the city this captures a lot in one image. Glasgow had relentlessly erased its architectural past and too many of the new buildings along the river are grindingly brutal. Lots of concrete and glass as a substitute for character.
Nice work Michael.

Thanks skellum thatís generous praise. I too liked the old brickwork & chimney sandwiched in the middle of the concrete 60s/70s rather brutal architecture and then the modern curved stuff at the back. The brickwork didnít come out as much as I would have liked in the print but I think it was pretty dirty in real life. A real mix of styles and you can see the old stuff being swamped.

Wonderful urban image. I love the gritty grain! HP5+ at 800 is great - particularly in Microphen - although ID11 has done a great job here.

An excellent close crop to give a busy urban image. The more grain the better for me Michael.
