    Default Exchange Flags

    I've wanted to get up here for ages, and I finally made it. Excellent views of the Liverpool skyline in all directions, with all the major landmarks visible.

    Great pics, Snappel. I didn't see the Nelson Monument on Exchange Flags. . . though maybe it's boarded up if they're working round there?

    Great banner! And it will remind me of when I used to work for a while beside the Town Hall at what used to be Martin's Bank, in the Cash Center, for a while in 1968. While I worked there we received news of Robert Kennedy being shot, so it had to have been June 5, 1968. I remember walking along Water Street and seeing news that Kennedy had been shot in the newspaper headlines. It sounded like a joke at first as if people were talking about his brother JFK's assassination five years prior, not Bobby Kennedy.

    Thanks! Went back again, this time in the daytime and had a look inside as well. Not much to see as it's all been stripped out. Some interesting staircases, but that was it. Windy as hell though, nearly got blown over on the roof... seriously blowy up there.

    I was in the Empress pub in High Park St leaning against the bar when a newsflash came on the TV. Everyone in the pub was glued to the TV and people walking over to the bar to see better. The engineer I was with said let's go. I said I think Kennedy has been shot let's see what happened. He was totally disinterested and wanted to go. This fella was so anal and self centred it was beyond belief.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Actually Dave, I'm beginning to agree with you. Photmatrix does highlights and shadows as well, I just haven't played with it much. It gives realistic looking photos with the best bits of all your exposures, but doesn't make them look like drawings.

    I dont know if this was planned as a panorama because it doesnt quite fit, but I tried it out of curiosity anyway.
