Default A few from Blackpool

Taken the other Saturday, we parked down at the South end and wandered up to Bispham (about 5 miles).
Had some fish and chips on the front and then wandered back with really bad guts, By the time we got home
i was practicing my Excorsist style projectile vomiting impression. But it's all sorted now and i did lose a few pounds

I was trying for the 'urban decay' look with these, not sure if i hit it

As far as composition goes, I think you convey urban decay (excepting the flowers - clearly different intent). Bleak, deserted, it feels cold (and windy for some reason). However, for me, #1,2,3 seem a bit over contrasty (?if that's really a word) and oversharpened - may be my monitor.

#5 is interesting - tilting, looks fake, suggests even in its prime it was an attempt at "grandeur" that was out of place and not in keeping with it's surroundings.

I like the series and the way you compose. The flowers pick may be somewhat conventional but WTH, I'm in a mood for that and love the selective colors! Thanks.
