A very effective use of colour Les
Les Auld: Thanks Chris, part of an occasional series.
What a very eye-catching image with such strong colours.
I can see why the building is called "Streaky Bacon" - I wonder how quickly that glossy black granite will dull off.
Les Auld: I assume the architects have tested it Sheila as that part of the waterfront does get some serious weather. Thanks for the comment.
I love how you have done this Les, You will have some great shots in the future as well with all that is happening there. Love the reflection in the granite.
Les Auld: I must admit I am looking forward t when this area is completed, thanks for the comment.

That's some clever use of selective colour, especially with the b/w reflection in the porthole. I see your orange theme is echoed nicely in Mark Varley's fetish ropes, currently positioned next to you!

Les Auld: Coming from someone who has used this technique in the past it is a fine compliment, I'm glad you like it. I can see what you mean about the comparison but you don't get many red ropes used like that in Liverpool, at least i public.
One of your best Les, not only to see the shot in the first place but to give it this excellent processing.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, appreciate the comment.
Very nice Les..The colouring really sets it off. The reflections look good too.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, part of an occasional series of red images.

kind of shot I like, good selective decoloration (or should I say colorization?)
Les Auld: Thanks Paolo, I appreciate it whatever way you say it. Thanks for the comment.
A great variation on a scene I have also featured. This is excellent Les. Wish I'd thought of it!
Les Auld: I remember your version Bill, I did this for a series of images with red in them, I'll probably post the rest over a period of time. Thanks for the comment.

Very strong piece of selective colouring Les. I really like the backdrop too!
Les Auld: Thanks Mike, I'm looking forward to even better backdrops when the building is finished.
