Nice photos, Galbraith. For some reason good, night time shots of Sheffield seem thin on the ground, so they're always going to be welcome.
I love night photography but I found it really hard in Sheffield. Its so dark, there's so much contrast between dark and bright Its a light meters nightmare

If only Furnival Square, the Moor and Sevenstone was under construction. Oh and Velocity tower was at full height....

Took this one this morning at about 8:20. Took it with my new camera - a Canon 500D, using full auto. Compared to my Powershot A650, the colours and light are much brighter, possibly to the point of being over exposed (does anybody else think that, or is it just me?). Having never had a SLR before, and having read about various filters, would you recommend using a filter in such bright sunlight conditions and if so, which one? (I know there's a camera thread somewhere, but couldn't find it).

Its because the metering systems are more complicated, and it meters from the whole scene as opposed to 4 points near the centre.

As you've got more darker areas in the foreground than you have sky in the background/distance then it'll always slightly overexpose.

I was next door to your office today Paul, I should have popped in for a DSLR 101 session :P

Might be worth noting that 7dayshop.com are selling 8gb SanDisk Ultra II compact flash cards for £19.99 today!

Ah! You were next door? - you should call in sometime! It's my first day with this new camera, and I'm just working my way through the manual. I didn't know quite what to expect - I knew the picture quality should be better, and it was, and certainly the noise is imperceptible, but I didn't expect the brightness and colour - everything seems so 'full bodied', much more than the A650. But that's a good tip - about foreground and background. I'll remember that.

Well, more round the corner than directly next door!

You should definitely get Canon 50mm f1.8, they're dead cheap but totally ace. Also, I might be selling a couple of Canon lenses in eView, but i'll more than happily give you first refusal on them.

Some interesting shots there Mr P. Really like the one with the winter garden on.

Thanks for posting them.

If the new SH building and furnvil are built, that bottom picture will pretty impressive.

Also we should concentrate on redeveloping the Victorian docks more. IMO it would be prime location for offices, bars and restaurants once Sheffield has fully recovered from the recession. You just have to look at the examples at Deansgate Locks, Clarence Dock and Albert Dock in other cities to realise this locations potential

Thought they were building a tesco's on that site in question?

To me the location has another added bonus in the fact it has rail line capacity (if Victoria Station was reopened) which is a great advantage as it would be helpful for anyone which commutes. This IMO would be another possible location for a Business District because of its potential transport facilities.

There are 2 hotels planned on the land behind The park Inn hotel (Crowne Plaze and a Express by Holiday Inn).

Tesco is going to be on the land just past the wicker arch
