I love the crop, Les, and the HDR effect! My kind of photo (especially with the cranes and spire).
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, there are cranes a-plenty by the river these days, I look forwad to when it is finished.
Great shot of the waterfront Les. The Anglican cathedral sometimes gets forgotten, but it is a beautiful building. If I remember rightly it's not actually as old as it looks.
Les Auld: Thnaks Bill, the foundation stone was laid by Edward VII in 1904 and it was completed in 1978. Only the third Anglican cathedral to be built in the country since the Reformation in the 16th century.
