Weekend in Black & White: New Market Stalls

As work progesses on the renovation of Hyde Market the bases and framework for new stalls on the Northern half of the market have gone up.

One of the cement mixers on the right seems to dominate the Town Hall on the left but this treatment serves to highlight the outlines of the work.

  1. Hah! Trust you, Gerald! I would never have thought of a 'negative' for a B&W contribution. It works a treat. You are having a lot of things in your area ripped up (down) and rebuilt. I thought GB was in a double-dip recession!

  2. A great composition and edit makes this a perfect post in B&W!

  3. A bold and dramatic monochrome highlighting the solid shapes and lines! Very artistic!

  4. This treatment adds to the interest of the scene. Very clever.

  5. In a way, such a picture gives association to something timeless. Well captured. Have a nice weekend!

  6. This is great! Love the hard contrasts! Wonderful editing!
