    Redeyes Ptooff!

    Cheers, was a lucky shot to be honest. I focused on Poppy's face and never thought about how the reflection would come out!

    Um, since when was Paddington an international station?

    And NR are more than happy for people to take photographs at their stations: http://www.networkrail.co.uk/aspx/777.aspx

    Oh shit I'm thinking of Waterloo aren't i?

    I've been asked what I'm doing taking photos at a station before.

    Waterloo isn't international either. Hasn't been for years. Only international station in London is St. Pancras.....unless you count Stratford International, which isn't really "international" at all since only domestic trains stop there.

    I think some of the staff like to make up their own rules, but NR, and I think most (all?) of the TOCs are happy for people to take photos at their stations, as long as people stick to a few simple rules. I think the advice generally given to is go onto whoever runs the station's website, print off the page about photography at stations and take it with you. Then if you get unfairly challenged you can show it to the person.

    And also, if you do get hassled, report it to whoever runs the station, be it NR or a TOC.

    Of course Paddington is an international station. You are not implying that Wales is merely a principality of England are you? ; )

    Went up to London yesterday, took my new camera, and took some shots by the Thames in the evening. Canon EOS 700D with 18-55mm STM IS kit lens.

    Edit: Actually they are all HDR images, except the Tower Bridge one.

    First one edited in Digital Photo Professional, the 2nd in Raw Therapee, and the 3rd wasn't edited at all.

    Ditto Euston and Scotland! And Kings Cross for that matter. And Liverpool Street for the Harwich ferry.

    In fact, come to think of it, Waterloo may be the only non-international station in London.

    I'm really not much of a photographer at all, to be honest, but this one, which I took in Argentian Patagonia in 2007, didn't turn out too badly, I guess:

    Was. The name of the band is not important as I am not trying to bash them. It is the music business as a whole and the competitive nature of these "I scratch your back if you scratch mine" awards that I am taking a cheap shot at...

    Thanks for the clarification. I had not appreciated that it was an installation, if that is the right word. I thought it was simply a skip you ahd happened upon.

    Either way, I appreciate the pic and the metaphor. Thank you.

    Remote controlling a Takahashi TOA 150 on a Paramount PME with an SBIG 8300 camera, up a mountain in a desert in New Mexico someplace via iTelescope.

    UK weather and light pollution make trying to do astrophotography locally pretty pointless IMO. So while I do a fair bit of visual astronomy, my dabbling with imaging is conducted via networked scopes in places with nice weather and no light pollution.

    Very nice shot of Mark Thomas, but I think a small crop and a tweak of the levels could improve it.

    The face is excellent, particularly the way you've got the sweat glistening. But the picture is rather ruined by that bit of flash on the LHS and the guitar(?) on the RHS. I suggest you paint out the guitar and crop the picture closer to his face:

    (I couldn't crop it decently without painting out the guitar.) I've not got that quite right, but I hope it helps.

    OK, this is the first photo I've ever taken without using automatic settings and auto-focus! I've got a little Canon Powershot SX260 HS compact camera, so don't be too scathing. :)

    It's a bit of a shame, this thread seems to have turned into more of a post a photo rather than crit thread.

    Perhaps it's because it's a sticky.
