    But it worked very well - the detail was there in bucket loads. Having used photographs for most of my working life as a means of providing legal evidence,
    I still tend to look at all photographs in the same way. Now I know messing about with colour rendition is a big alteration, but if the originals were in monochrome one would have the same problem. For me; a good set of images can be as good as an actual visit and in fact many of the locations I see on here, and really enjoy looking at, I would never want to actually visit. What I do not like, as an armchair explorer, are photographs that are so dark that most of the details are hidden or very difficult to see. But then again each to their own!

    Beautiful building, I thought I recognised the Clock tower. It's the one Natasha Richardson throws herself off in Asylum. Absolutely stunning building though.
