    Harr (sea fog) drifts in occasionally, so I went out the front door, down a few steps, and took these at circa 7am this morning. I'm going to enjoy living here! South Queensferry.

    Oh, that first one. The lamp is clear and the fog over the bridge. Really like that one.
    Great set as a whole!

    Cheers, Aaron. My fav is the second, but I've tried a crop of the first one, and can't decide if it is better.

    Great set, wonderful atmosphere. The first one is just beutiful, I can imagine Holmes and Watson standing there, pondering a case.

    The Case of The Mysterious Road Cone...Did I intend it to be some perfectly aligned with the bench? o_O

    Really like the atmosphere in the first though I prefer the crop version.

    Have you thought about cropping or cloning out the wires?

    Cheers, Milan. No, I haven't. I like the wires and the scaffolding.

    Having looked at the later ones first, although these are good, the later ones are more atmospheric I feel. However, the first shot here is brilliant and what struck me first was that it did have that period feel, but emphasised by the modern scaffolding and cables. The past intruding into the present. Cracking stuff.

    Thanks, Pete. Indeed, I liked the contrast and also the connection between scaffold and the construction of the bridge. The guys took the scaffolding away today...

    I prefer the 1st one original. I also like how the bridge faded into the background with modernity at center stage.
