I won't say the words which come to mind when I see this. Poor would be part of the clean version. It's scanned from a 35mm glossy and the quality is disgusting. Hopefully you can get some idea of the photo though.

Ferny, what a surprise. Just when some of us have almost forgotten you, you pop back in again! It is great have you back. Try not to be so scarce in the future.

Well, you have already sufficently criticized your self on the technical aspects of this photo so I won't go there. You have definitely met the challenge with converging lines and vanishing point.

Is that London in the background and would that be the Thames river?

Cal

Ferny,

To echo Cal's greeting in Hawaiian, Aloha. Aloha is a great word, it has at least twenty meanings and Hello and Goodbye are two of them. I wonder if there are any English words like that? Actually in a few years aloha will become so anglophiled it'll be english.

All technical merits aside, the vanishing points are well constructed.

Cal, I wouldn't imagine that London would be in the background since there are no tall skyscrapers. However, I am equally curious where on the Thames this is since I though most of the Thames would be overwhelmed by urban construction.

Cheers

Not quite the Thames, bit further north.

Ferry, your work was not in vain. There are many lines leading to vanishing points and even though the photo quality is compromised, as StitchBabesaid, it fits the challenge.
