yes i took them. as my girlfriend is from newcastle i guess i visit it sometimes now. haven't had much luck with the weather yet but i will one day... that's also why i was asking about downing plaza, i'd like to know what i'm looking at.

last one is two shots. fired the flash in the second shot and then pasted the shot without the flash over it so you cant see the reflections on the window but you can see the flash illuminated the foreground.

Anyone else think that the Sage from the angle in Gothic's fourth pic looks like the head of an Alien from the films?

once i've uploaded everything i took i'll do a photothread i think but here's some more of the sage, and my girlfriend's arse.

http://www.skyscrapernews.com/galler...age&images=all

how long between the shots? a couple of minutes... at the point i drunkenly realised the flash could be seen (yes i took those pics pissed). the one of the baltic in the snow i actually shot lying down on the ground as i didn't have a tripod with me. not a common site in newcastle judging from what passersby were shouting at me.

Any chance of one of them becoming the SSC banner for a day? preferably the Tyne bridge one.

we'd need a shot of the right dimensions. NasamLuap's would be. can someone link me to his flickr so i can check the copyright details of the pic first though... then i'll see it's added to the queue.

hollow man, it's down to you to provide the link and get Newcastle on the list for an SSC banner, I've tried looking for NasamLuap's profile, and that pick and have found nothing, so hopefully you will be able to find it for us, and hopefully it fits the criteria and before long we will go down in SSC history.

In the mean time I myself, and I'm sure a couple of other here will search for one that you could possibly use. Is not possible to ask NosamLuap if you can have permission to use his photo?

Can the dimensions not be adjusted in Photoshop, or any other Photo editing website for that matter?

Not having a go, just wondering why not, if that is the case.

you could crop them yes. but you want it so that the main detail is retained (see today's banner for an example)

grey's monument...
