i agree with rosalyn .
Les Auld: Thanks Mick, so do I.
Now, someone...er...younger than us wink could possibly have taken another exposure of the buildings, done an HDR conversion to get some detail in that shadow area, and ruined the serene effect you have captured so well! Nice work.
Les Auld: I did try this out as an HDR as I had taken three exposures 2 stops apart but for some reason it did not look right, so a bit of PS work brought it to a decent silhouette instead. I.ve only just noticed as well that there is a security light shining bright on top of the tower - just goes to show you can still miss things, put it down to old age.

Thanks for the comment Dave.
