What's the red lines all about!

Another great photo, Andrew. You have captured all the detail. What was the 'time exposure' ?

Comment by: Vb on 18th January 2016 at 08:04

Very sharp picture and may I say how smart the building looks when lit up compared to the cold light of day!

It's Hindley's red light district Garry. How's it going mate ?

Comment by: Alan H on 18th January 2016 at 15:06

Garry, it's time lapse photography and it's the red lights from the passing traffic

Comment by: Andy Swift on 18th January 2016 at 19:06

A brilliant photo of what was the old Co-operative Building.
I just wish all of Hindley looked like that.

Comment by: Garry on 18th January 2016 at 21:03

Yes but what's the point of it, Alan H. It's a perfect photo without the red lines. It can be over done you know.

Comment by: trevor on 18th January 2016 at 22:38

Alan H its not time lapse, just a long exposure, hence you do not see the car only the lights

Comment by: Ellen on 19th January 2016 at 00:23

Garry;if you think this is "overdone", why don't you go out and make some photos that you consider "properly done",and post them for the enlightenment of all?
Andrew;on looking at your last photo and the comments, it appears that I might have been "damning with faint praise." In fact, nothing was farther from the truth;;it and this are superb. Thanks.

What an absolutely great picture and thanks for all the nice comments about the building!! It is a big beast to keep looking in top shape but a pleasure to do so!!

Comment by: Garry on 19th January 2016 at 10:42

Ellen lets not be argumentative over this, you certainly don't want to argue with me. All I'm saying...what's the point of it! I was furring to Andrew not you!
The photo's great.

I would be interested to hear what difference is achieved by a long exposure against a "normal" photo? I hasten to add that the photo is majestically good

Comment by: Andrew on 19th January 2016 at 12:56

Thanks folks :-)
I think they have done a great job giving this building new life - I have always been a fan of Victorian buildings and had it on my list to tog for quite a while.

Comment by: Garry on 19th January 2016 at 16:55

It's a former CO-OP building Andrew.

Comment by: Ellen on 19th January 2016 at 16:57

Garry; I certainly don't usually want to get into conflict about P a D submissions, and don't normally comment if it is not in appreciation of pics. I expect this was a personal reaction to my mood at the time and I should not have let it slip out! I do apologize if my comment struck a nerve.

Comment by: Garry on 19th January 2016 at 17:59

Moody Ellen, I love it! No need to apologize x

Comment by: Ellen on 19th January 2016 at 21:49

Garry; Thanks, but all the same,I do!

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 20th January 2016 at 08:55

Ellen; There`s nothing wrong with your 19th Jan. 00:23 comment. Garry`s been told, several times, to submit photo`s, but he always, as here, evades the issue.

Comment by: Garry on 20th January 2016 at 17:38

Ernest go and make some coco and fill your hot water bottle!

Comment by: andy s on 22nd January 2016 at 13:12

i had my wedding reception in there when it was the top spot in 1993

Comment by: B R on 23rd January 2016 at 20:33
