Wow, I love this Tony! It has a nice nostalgic feel, and it really pops nicely. I like alot.

It makes a lovely patchwork picture of different stones, bricks and slates. Amazing how old these buildings are and they're still standing.

Nice. I bet that would sharp in B & W too.

Thanks Brad, Leonie & Ken. Taken today whilst shopping! Stamford is a beautiful, historic, stone-built town that's not as well known as some others, so isn't full of tourists. It's use in recent years for filming historical dramas for TV and the cinema may change that.

Tony, this is wonderful. I would really enjoy seeing the entire buildings.

I'm always amazed that buildings survive this long. What wonderful history you have over there. Good capture on this one.

I like the changes in architecture and materials.
Nice textures with the light.....nice light.
This one makes me think of Dickens. The texture, lighting and tonality are very nice. What a great capture. Wish I had buildings of this sort where I live....Sigh!

Thanks for the comments everyone. Monnie, if I'd used a wider angle on this you'd have absolutely hated the nose-to-tail line of vehicles parked in front of the ground floor shops. Our streetscapes have really changed since the advent of the motor car.

Tony you have done a great job of showing this scene off, as mentioned above the difference in matrials give it a patchwork feel. What i am most impressed with is the depth of the shot and your abitiy to expose the forground and the sky so well togeather. Is there any post processing in this shot?

Thanks Richie. It was shot in RAW (as is all my stuff), and I deliberately underexposed the shot (-0.7EV) to keep the sky detail, then corrected the brightness of the buildings in post processing. I applied a touch of tonal contrast to emphasise the textures.

Very nice shot. I liked the details in the buildings and lighting it very good. Great job.
Brilliant photography Tony and thanks so much for sharing it.
I so wish to go back to the UK now I have a decent camera, the buildings are mind blowing.

Thanks Snoopy & Jan. I've photographed this row before, but the sunshine showed the textures better and made this shot my best of the subject so far.
