    Look like nice pics, but that huge copywright watermark kind of ruins them for me.

    Writing the word COPYRIGHT on your images in massive letters does absolutely nothing to achieve that.

    Default Watermarks.


    As much as I understand your desire for keeping your work your own, the watermark across these strikes me more as cutting off your nose to spite your face. It's a great shame, as the pictures actually look fairly decent.
    It's hardly as if the pics you posted were of a printable resolution either.

    I reckon you went the same day Mookster and I did, we were just about to go in when we saw the floor had been ripped up completely so thought better of it

    We asked the builders if we could take photos and promised them we wouldnt go inside the buildings as they were unsafe. I have some photos of the inside of the main hall that was arson attacked and a few photographs through windows x

    They are perfectly safe if you are careful, you should have sneaked off out of sight.

    I agree mate- floors/buildings seemed fine to me- apart from the ones at the bottom of the clock tower which are dodgy
