    this a very last minute image taken and processed with not a lot of time to spare. I had done another with a lamp post but coudnt get the light right
the camera was placed on a box to get the height and the wall behind me is upright but both the buildings and bridge are not flat
part of the image was blurred due to standing in a fault line in the avon gorge which moves 132 time a year for geological reasons and I cantr stand still long enough.

thanks for the comments . the camera was set on 1a and a timed shutter release

    I'm guessing this is part of a neighbourhood watch routine. It epitomizes these boring watches where nothing ever happens until 5 minutes after the end of your shift, when you hear the tinkle of broken glass. Without the tilt, I'd have it even higher.

    Nice job working within your lighting limitations. Good clear photo of the view, though the subject is blurred.

    I like the balance between the light and dark areas in this shot, and the positioning of the man of to one side seems to enhance his observer role. It's easy to believe it's late at night, and he's the only one awake for miles around. One of my favourites.

    A good idea that produces an evocative feeling. Horrison line is slightly off unfortunately.

    the blur adds interest and, at least to me, a stronger sense of solitude. Some of my best shots are serendipitous. Like the composition, lighting. [If you really want to speed up your shutter BTW to eliminate blur, WAY crank up the iso, open up you aperture more and see what you can do].

    A little spooky, but I do get a sense of solitude. Good in B&W.
