    Walking around town last night and took this, shot on Ilford Delta 100 and scanned, slight levels adjustment, crop to 7x5 ratio and resized.

    Bit of fun, but what do you think?

    i like this. very creative :)

    i wish the subject was between the girl and the guy on the left in the photo and the sidewalk was cropped out so it would look like he is part of the billboard.

    nitpik: there is a bit of a reflection over the face of the girl standing on the right of the photo.

    I know what you mean about the subject, and I kicked myself a little for that - should have moved him. And the reflection was the best I could get - moved one way or the other and a giant superdrug sign would have been plastered across it.


    He does sort of fit in, and no, I never made it New Brighton - a late getaway from Wigan, and a tired head meant a straight run home - I do have some from last year though!

    Why thankyou very much! :)

    Thanks!

    Cheers! :thumbup:

    Amazing shot! The juxtaposition of the subject and the background is on point.
