Northern Goldsmiths

These are two versions of the same picture, with slightly different cropping and tweaking. I like the coloured floodlights on the stone of the upper floors of Northern Goldsmiths, and that’s what I was trying to capture. Now getting a long enough exposure to show off the stone meant that the much brighter light from the shop windows totally burnt out. I can’t make my mind up whether I like that effect, and the motion blurred people, or if it looks better cropped.

So, as I can’t decide, I’ll let the vast[1] Losing it[1] audience look at them both. If you have a preference, or an opinion, please leave a comment[2]

[1] In numbers. I’m sure all my readers are perfectly proportioned[3]
[2] Of course, if you think they’re both rubbish, don’t feel obligated to tell me :wink:
[3] Is that enough audience flattery? :tongue:
