    About the trucks, the actual surface they were on had a decided slope, so being in a rush, I set up the tripod with three legs all equal length. So what you see is both the result of a rotation of the vehicles (and the actual underlying shadows) and my attempt to align all the mirrors at the same height. I actually "grew" the layers to get the background and mirrors aligned and that is why the trucks appear slightly different sizes, as if one is more forward than the other. But really, the eye trick is one of perspective. You can't get a head on shot of three vehicles this close adjacent to each other and have no sides showing, hence the sense that they are arranged in a shallow semi-circle. I want to play with this technique more to see how surreal the image can appear. Your eye is so used to processing perspective that when things don't line up with reality your brain starts compensating. I think ;-)

    Not too often that you see the locks completely filled. Lots going on, with great colour and detail.

    Thanks Jade - Last minute rush - got both my shots just before closing. I put the wrong one in here - I'd cropped it to a panoramic shot for the reason you mentioned. No time to do a proper job of replacing the apartments. Maybe for the outtakes.

    Nice colour, sharpness and white balance. Wished you'd sunk the apartment tower.
