    What a splendid looking building and you both composed and captured it so well Roddy, love the idea of the monochrome presentation with just that bit of colour from the lights in the windows, impressive work,
    Regards, Rod.

    You are just as skilled in the post processing department as you are with your photography Roddy! Would never have thought of this, and it’s so effective.

  • Thank you very much Parmi!
