I went along to an exhibition for the latest proposal to develop this abandoned power station in London. I would be grateful for any comments on some of the photos.

Taken with a Sony H7 "superzoom" with processing done in Picasa.

Hello kpmarek, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum.
Nice shots you made of a very well knokn subject!
I esp. love #3 :D You have tweaked the colors and contrast on this one, haven't you?
#2 is a little unexciting, so to speak :?

Thanks for the comments Thomas.

I really like #3 too. I tweaked the contrast and shadows using Picasa. Just a simple edit really but I'm happy with the result.

#2 Unexciting? I guess so! Just interesting too see different sorts of people looking in at the old building. Not sure how I could have added interest though ... suggestions?

Old people like me, remember it from the cover of Pink Floyd's album "Animals"...

kpmarek, "adding interest"? Well I don't know.
Perhaps the disappointing part is that you see all the people looking at something, but you can also see into the room but you don't see anything interesting there (at least not on your photo).
If you would have shot something like 45° from one side you would have captured the people looking, perhaps with some facial profiles, but not what they were looking at. That would have left room for people looking at your photo to speculate about what those people in the image are so interested in.
That could be a more interesting version of the image.
