Taken from the Baltic Flour Mills gallery in Newcastle, shot through the glass barriers (hence the odd bits I couldn't remove). Very much a last minute entry, I only just got to my computer on the last day and feverishly hunted through my shots looking for a suitable one to use (not easy).

I'm not too sure how this will be received... does it meet the challenge or not? I guess I'll find out.

I found this to be an interesting shot, and though there doesn't seem to be any one "object" that is the main subject to be off-center, the picture still has an "off-center" feeling to me, so I think you have met the challenge well.

I like the contrast of the old and new bridges, though I think more of the newer bridge would add even more interest to the shot. I like the composition of this shot and the way the bridges provide "counter balancing" of each other.

The duotone/bw/sepia works well here to help establish a mood I think. I think color may have been to busy, and judging from the clouds in the sky, color may have seemed bland since it was cloudy. (Good details captured in the clouds, I think).

A nice shot.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact me and best to you in future challenges.

Really nice landscape shot of the Millenium bidge - good range of tones and interesting angle.

An interesting panoroma! I'm curious as to why there's a vertical line in the cloud in the upper left...? I like the overall tone of the shot. Looks like an interesting place to visit.
