I like that Rob. Composition, tones and detail all spot on.
An interesting optical effect at Birmingham airport ...
It's actually 2 identical perforated sliding doors one in front of the other - but gives this illusion of a hexagonal cellular structure.

This friendly looking chap is one of the guardians of the Bournemouth War Memorial:
And these are Bournemouth Pier from the underneath:
Ian.I am no photographer but that last picture is just superb.When viewing it the way it has been applied makes it look like it has a zoom in function.
Thanks, Tony. It's really all down to the camera. I'm just beginning to get used to it, and exploring its capabilities, but it's a beautiful piece of kit, and has reignited my love for photography.
There's something about the photos produced by a Leica that sets them apart from other cameras. It wasn't something that I rushed into, and I'm grateful to Dunk for his advice. I'm glad that I took the plunge.
Hope you're ok.
Coypu, Strasbourg, last week.

At the top of Multnomah Falls in Oregon:
(hope this image embed works...)
Thanks Mark, much appreciated. I got lucky with this one... almost decided not to carry my tripod and ND + polarizing filters up there, but am glad I did! :)
One more... at a railway station in Kansas:
Really great piccies workahol (ic?), the waterfall especially.
* The camera was a Fuji X100S with wide-angle converter attached, so 28mm focal length in 35mm terms.
* I said above that I put on an ND filter, but I was thinking of another camera - this one has a built-in ND filter, so I'm sure I just used that. It's equivalent to a 3-stop external ND.
* B+W circular polarizer adjusted to kill the reflections off the water and reveal the cool whirlpool at lower right.
* I'd have to check the metadata to confirm, but I believe this was 5 seconds at either f/11 or f/16, ISO 200.
* Post-processing in Lightroom, season to taste... :)
And thanks for the compliments guys, I am still learning my way around a lens but I do appreciate it very much.

Another long exposure of a different waterfall in Oregon. This one was shot with a Canon S100, using its built-in ND filter, 2-second exposure, handheld while leaning against a tree if you can believe it.
Slight colour cast can be sorted in LR - 10 stops can get some really nice cloud movement and blurring of water... It was used for this:

Beautiful shot Rob! I'm jealous.
