I like your dramatic take, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks ray, it is one of tose things that is so photogrpahed that it is difficult to come up with anything original.

Beautiful!! Can see why it won....this is a very strong image.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bonnie.
Ah, the 'Angel'. A nice shot Brian, I have had fun taking pic's here after visiting my son in Newcastle.
Brian Walbey: It is one of those things where it is difficult to come up with anything original.
Congratulations on your second place win for this! I have been there, and remember feeling very small! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. Until one visits the Angel it is difficult to imagine its size. I'm not sure if you were on SC when I posted my collage of the Angel back in September, 2009 so if you have time you might like to take a look http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/image/2009/09/09/the-angel-of-the-north/

An structure everybody in the UK must know
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chris, we were lucky that there was only a few people there at the time.

Very striking, Brian. I am pleased you were awarded second place
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl, shame this is a long way from you for you to visit it yourself.
Well done, Brian! Such a famous landmark I'd love to see one day.
Brian Walbey: It's a long way in English terms from where you and Astrid stay during your visits over here, indeed it is a long way from us, further than Maureenw ants to drive these days, at least we've seen it once.

It's a fine subject for photographers Brian, especially with changing skies. My first snaps on here were a series on the angel. I thought you had posted images of it before?
Brian Walbey: It is one where it is difficult to come up with an original view. I posted a small version of this on 9th.September, 2009 as part of a collage, you have avery good memory Chad.
I used to stop at the angel on most of my trips up to the NE back in the days of work.

This is a fine pic of the angel
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, trying to get an original shot is nigh on impossible I would think.

J'aime bien ses formes et ses couleurs.
Brian Walbey: It is one of the most famous public works of art we have in Northern England.

Everyone says your angel is famous, so I had to look it up (I only know London's Cucumber and Eye). It means I have seen many pictures of the Angel of the North. What sets yours apart is the strong diagonal line and the clouds.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Louis. I posted a collage of the Angel back in September, 2009 of which this was a small part, you might like to take a look http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/image/2009/09/09/the-angel-of-the-north/

Yes, I saw this angel by Antony Gormley with my own eyes along a motorway in South-England - but as I know this angel can be seen also in north-England. I like your diagonal composition giving a feel of its greatness.
Brian Walbey: I didn't know about a southern version, this is the one that gets all the attention. My collage of September, 2009 gives you some idea of its size. http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/image/2009/09/09/the-angel-of-the-north/

I've been up to Newcastle several times but only once have I seen this this. The satnav has apparently decided to take me a different these days. I've never had the chance to photograph it. I like your view of it; it keeps other people out of the frame. Well done t the judge on this this occasion fro being able to see your skills.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, fortuntely there wasn't many people about. It is only just off the A1 so I wonder where your satnav took you.
Very dramatic composition. Well done!
Brian Walbey: Thansk Mary, this is one of our things to be seen these days.

I have seen this angel before, however I do love your point of view very much. Those radiant colours. And congratulations on the second place!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, this is one of our 'things to be seen' these days.

A great image of an iconic landmark.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Anne, no doubt you have been there on your travels.
Well worth a plce, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, I guess you've probably been to se the Angel on your travels.
