What's the red lines all about!


Comment by Aubrey on 18th January 2016 at 07:18
Another great photo, Andrew. You have captured all the detail. What was the 'time exposure' ?


Comment by Vb on 18th January 2016 at 08:04
Very sharp picture and may I say how smart the building looks when lit up compared to the cold light of day!


Comment by Ozymandias. on 18th January 2016 at 11:00
It's Hindley's red light district Garry. How's it going mate ?


Comment by Alan H on 18th January 2016 at 15:06
Garry, it's time lapse photography and it's the red lights from the passing traffic


Comment by Andy Swift on 18th January 2016 at 19:06
A brilliant photo of what was the old Co-operative Building.
I just wish all of Hindley looked like that.


Comment by Garry on 18th January 2016 at 21:03
Yes but what's the point of it, Alan H. It's a perfect photo without the red lines. It can be over done you know.


Comment by trevor on 18th January 2016 at 22:38
Alan H its not time lapse, just a long exposure, hence you do not see the car only the lights


Comment by Ellen on 19th January 2016 at 00:23
Garry;if you think this is "overdone", why don't you go out and make some photos that you consider "properly done",and post them for the enlightenment of all?
Andrew;on looking at your last photo and the comments, it appears that I might have been "damning with faint praise." In fact, nothing was farther from the truth;;it and this are superb. Thanks.


Comment by Kai Binder on 19th January 2016 at 00:39
What an absolutely great picture and thanks for all the nice comments about the building!! It is a big beast to keep looking in top shape but a pleasure to do so!!


Comment by Garry on 19th January 2016 at 10:42
Ellen lets not be argumentative over this, you certainly don't want to argue with me. All I'm saying...what's the point of it! I was furring to Andrew not you!
The photo's great.


Comment by Ken on 19th January 2016 at 11:47
I would be interested to hear what difference is achieved by a long exposure against a "normal" photo? I hasten to add that the photo is majestically good


Comment by Andrew on 19th January 2016 at 12:56
Thanks folks :-)
I think they have done a great job giving this building new life - I have always been a fan of Victorian buildings and had it on my list to tog for quite a while.


Comment by Garry on 19th January 2016 at 16:55
It's a former CO-OP building Andrew.


Comment by Ellen on 19th January 2016 at 16:57
Garry; I certainly don't usually want to get into conflict about P a D submissions, and don't normally comment if it is not in appreciation of pics. I expect this was a personal reaction to my mood at the time and I should not have let it slip out! I do apologize if my comment struck a nerve.


Comment by Garry on 19th January 2016 at 17:59
Moody Ellen, I love it! No need to apologize x


Comment by Ellen on 19th January 2016 at 21:49
Garry; Thanks, but all the same,I do!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 20th January 2016 at 08:55
Ellen; There`s nothing wrong with your 19th Jan. 00:23 comment. Garry`s been told, several times, to submit photo`s, but he always, as here, evades the issue.


Comment by Garry on 20th January 2016 at 17:38
Ernest go and make some coco and fill your hot water bottle!


Comment by andy s on 22nd January 2016 at 13:12
i had my wedding reception in there when it was the top spot in 1993


Comment by B R on 23rd January 2016 at 20:33

Comment by Garry on 24th January 2016 at 09:23
