Hi Neil, Not being a photographer in any shape or form, I'm really interested to read the reaction of those who do know about photography to your work. To me it has light, shapes, form, nooks and crannies(sic not sure) so much to look at, so much going on. Or is what I'm looking at all artificial? Found this interesting either way. Thanks Neil.

Hope you didn't fall foul of the Galleries SS, I tried to take a picture of the clock and got told off with security..."you can't take pictures in here"!

Does anybody know the make of this clock.

Jean is confusing and boring.
Lovely crisp clear shot.
Well done.

Jean, that's how it was on the day, (16.08.14, same day as Tom's P-a-D yesterday!) Because of the skylights there will obviously, be different amounts of brightness/contrast/shadows etc. at other times.

britboy, no-one prevented me taking photos, it was late in the afternoon, not many people about; did not see any signs about any restrictions.

Can't take a photo in a public place?. What a ridiculous fascist Orwellian police state we live in. Security my backside, it's nothing to do with this 'terrorism' nonsense, rather just used as another reason to take more rights and freedoms away from people; can't take a photo yet look up at the ceiling you'll see those domed cameras everywhere - we even have them on outside of buses now. People need to wake up to this nonsense otherwise it will get worse, not just for us but for our children and grandchildren.

Superb a beautiful and outstanding detailed photo .Neil

One thing is for certain Mick, like everything else these days it will have been made in China.

DB, security cameras also made in China.

A lovely photograph Neil not artificial in any way Jean, just a well taken shot. Done well to get the colour and detail considering the bright light that would have been coming from the skylight. Alan, how rude to call someone confusing and boring, totally unnecessary. And although the galleries are used by the public, they are privately owned and therefore photography is subject to permission by the owners - yes, I know we togs are doing no harm but that is what the law says unfortunately.

Thanks Janice, I must admit to have been slightly taken aback by Alan,s comments as Neil's work is excellent with a lot to say , and indeed ask and question . My artificial comment / observation Janice was a open one to all - Is it? Could it be seen this way? Sorry to bore you Alan, as to the confusion, all I can say is I personally, saw Neil,s work better than a lovely clear shot

Chen I used to here people a few years ago say I wouldnt have anything thats made in China in my house.

It wont be to many years and they will be drinking top quality Chinese wine

Mick you don't know what you're missing with a bottle of Great Wall Red!!

Comment by: Alan on 24th August 2014 at 09:16

Well, why didn't you say it's better than a lovely clear shot Jean, at 18:18. Instead of talking bla bla bla!

Comment by: Jean on 26th August 2014 at 16:48

Alan, bla, bla bla, as you describe it is called detail. If you prefer to see world only as black or white then that is entirely up to you . I personally will continue to enhance my bla bla bla.

Comment by: Jean on 29th August 2014 at 16:25

Check your comment Alan 20th Aug, re Dave Oy's. picture. Speaks for itself...

Comment by: Alan on 8th September 2014 at 07:15

Yah, it's good init jean.

Comment by: Jean on 9th September 2014 at 16:32

Oh Alan, you so disappoint me. Far too weak. I regard you as one of the best for a serious debate. You,ll have to do better than that Alan to stir my feathers. Pick it Alan for heaven sakes.

Comment by: Veronica on 18th July 2019 at 09:35

As usual Alan cannot abide anyone being descriptive and literal. Perhaps because he is incapable of that himself. So he resorts to negativity.
