Another great shot Thomas. Good exposure and nice and sharp with good colours. The Canon Powershot a1200 is a great little compact and in the right hands, this is what you get! 8/10 Also good foreground detail because I love crisps and Mr Kipling cakes. This comment should keep MOST people happy ;)

Nice photo, haven't been there for yonks. Very much like the old market hall in design but no atmosphere yet and NO people..!!

Not a great footfall as they say tom

A very pleasing perspective view, Tom.
Mr.Kipling first appeared in 1967 and is only one of several brands of Premier Foods. Refer:- http://www.premierfoods.co.uk/our-brands/
The crisps in the boxes below Mr.Kipling are dearer than B & M.
Not a man in sight and all three ladies in the aisle are wearing trousers!!
What time of day was it Tom?

Cleaner and more hygenic than the old one, brighter than the old one, more spacious than the old one, warmer than the old one, safer than the old one. Someone tell me why exactly the old one was, as many in here claim superior because I am finding it difficult to think of a single practical and realistic reason why.

Looks busy,no wonder they dont allow cameras into the market hall(naughty boy Thomas)to show how empty it is

I think you are looking for the word...ATMOSPHERE..MikeW.

Agree with MikeW.A Lot of folk prefer the dark ages.This pick is better exposed ,and the perspective is better. I like living picks that show us life ,not deprivation .
6---10.
