Liverpool before the canal link

This isn’t really a great photo, and I haven’t posted it before because I didn’t think it worked. It felt too disjoint. But as the new canal link is open now and this view has changed dramatically, I feel the image works on some level. At the very least you can see how much has changed in 2 years.

    Has the statue gone now? or is it just slightly out of the picture on the newer one?

  2. @Lloyd – Thats a good point. I don’t know where that is.

  3. The colors are so saturated and vibrant.

  4. Not a great photo? Well, I really like it!

  5. Though I can understand your comment about it not being a technically great photo, it still impresses.

  6. Great color of the sky and use of this HDR image!

    The Edward VII statue (the equestrian one) and the Sir Alfred Lewis Jones memorial were both being restored, so I guess that’s still going on. The ALJ one is going to be back in that area too when it’s all finished, or at least that was the original plan!

    oooh i just discovered it’s actually not going back there now :/ it’s going somewhere else – but I don’t know where!

  9. Great perspective love the colour of the sky GREAT!

  10. Great foresight to do a before-and-after shot ;-)

  11. The ironic thing for me that after all the expense and hard work it looks better in this image than it does today :/
