    Sorry not much diagonal–interested in the bringing out the cloudy sky  with RAW and Silver efex–this is one I did earlier—1973–battered old Plus X  neg with an orange filter on lens  and just a little Topaz to smooth out old neg scratches.

    (This is a photograph of the Albert Dock reflected in the windows of the Museum of Liverpool. The diagonals are more subtle here, but perhaps the most obvious and most important is the top-left to bottom-right of the inner image of the reflected Albert Dock.)

    I love this building Ian. I have similar iamges, but not with the reflections in it. Both ends of this building offer a great potential for photography aswell as you say the diagaonals it has. Unfortunatley I have not managed to get the reflections in. Damn.

    Meg >>> Yes, it’s an interesting building to photograph, isn’t it?  I bet you did get the reflections in the south-facing window; but you need to do a bit of the old “digital Ansel Adams” development to get the reflections clear. (I attach the original of the image to the botom of this post for your information.)

    As you know I am a cat person, I could easily steal that dog. Even its getting into the act of posing diagonally. To your Museum shots. Though the side curve on the building gives it a bit of a graceful sweep I think.  I have shot it from the City side diagonally and the corner that you have has as well. I will post them, even if I have to do a bit of photoshop on it to tweak it up abit.

    Watch this space later.

    Meg >>> You could easily steal that dog?  You’d have to be mad! But he does have the knack of posing diagonally, so maybe he’s not entirely crackers!

    Please do post some images – Ken and I are starting to feel a bit lonely on this forum!!!

    Thanks, Ken. I thought you’d like that shot. (And Ollie thinks you’re his kind of photographer: very free with the biscuits!)

    Yes I’ve looked out some of those images I was talking about. But will have to say that they are not my fianl posting as they are strictly taken a few months back. So technically speaking I can’t offically use them for this months challanege. But will take some specifically for it. Clear as mud I think!!!!!

    Meg >>> Copy that second link (the one to ‘farm9.staticflickr’), including everything inside the quotation marks, but not the quotation marks themselves.

    Then delete everything currently in your post.

    Switch to ‘Text” (Click the tab on the right, next to “Visual”)

    Click the ‘img’ button, and paste the link into the first dialogue box.  (When you’ve done that, you get a second dialogue box – just leave it blank, or you can put a title.)

    Switch back to “Visual” and you should see your image in you post.

    As you start to think of diagonals I suppose architectural subjects come to mind but as I was processing some shots I took on safari this week I realised that one shot has a nice “diagonals” feature. This young chap was on his way down the tree and I like the diagonals of his arms and the way that two branches in the background echo their shape. Won’t win any comps but – I like it. Processed with LR4.
