I wrote a long pretentious caption but my browser crashed 'cos I had too many tabs open :( It was something about the reflection of the lights being the only warmth and activity in a desolate scene, and that speeding-through-foreign-lands feeling. The picture didn't really work, but then pictures taken on trains never do. I liked it anyway, so tough.

There are some more train pictures under the "on the move" tag.

Familiar to Bristolians (click on the tag). Imagine my surprise, when taking a short walk along the Thames at Canon Street for Thursday's sunset, at seeing it between the open decks of Tower Bridge, with canon blasting, and a crew of 18th century pirates.

From the castle, taken back in the spring.

Following Olduvai George's suggestion, I've been horizontal flipping images to check up on composition before posting them. This shot has been sat in "my stuff I haven't uploaded yet" folder for months as I couldn't decide whether it was good enough. Having flipped, it became obvious that it needed a chunk of boring space cut off from the right.

I spotted this in the archives and decided it had obvious potential for improvement. I think I got a bit carried away though.

- Layer mask symetrically graduated between the middle of the stadium and ~ 1/2 way into the sky.
-- In the sky, curves used to add contrast in the red and blue channels and bring down exposure
-- In the cityscape, curves used to bring up exposure slightly, and +5 shadows used to bring out details; also, 100% unsharp mask to bring out details of stadium seating
- Mirror image added, exposure reduced, especially in the highlights, with curves
-- blurred and ripple effect added
-- linear graduated layer added, to make bottom darker
