Just a quick reminder that after much pestering by myself and other 'regulars' the UK Urban Photo Contest is back up and running again. There have been so many excellent pictures here lately that i wouldn't want anyone to miss out - this is a great opportunity to get some constructive feedback and to show off our wonderful city at the same time...

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=554

My current entries..

Fountain of Youth



The Queen and the Boy



And if anyone doesn't believe it's a great showcase for our city, check out the latest finals, no less than 3 photos from Liverpool (well, one from New Brighton)

I'll spare you the tourist snaps, have the A59 instead. Loved the eclectic victoriana, impressive selection of pubs. Utterly different to Glasgow which is good.

Shows how good the real city looks away from the downtown area so beloved by our ex-pats when they come up for one of their two monthly visits and think they know the place. Love it.

Great photos.... although please can we not 'quote' posts with large numbers of photos in them as it takes an age to scroll down the page!

Few recent shots..

Thought the red and blue cranes were very symbolic in this shot..



Saw this shadow cast on the famous wall of the Everyman - I wonder if I should send it to their marketting people?



Metropolitan Cathedral in interesting light



Crazy skies over the mersey



Current UPC entries (please enter the UK one as they're stuggling for photos!)

Your photos are getting better and better Tom, I wonder if you will become a professional one day? That one with beer barrels in particular is just stunning.

Cheers Poli, this forum has given me an easy outlet and encouraged me to try and think about the photos I'm taking and find the most interesting angles etc. I also love being able to dislay parts of Liverpool (the well known and not so well known) in an interesting and creative light, as often most of what other people sees of the city are the 'postcard' shots you get on news items. There's a really high standard of photography on this thread, probably one of the heighest of any city forum, and it'd be great if more people entered photos into the UPC, or even just posted them here for us to enjoy!

tom if your ever on the dock road i thought there was potential for a good picture. by the scrap metal place and that building that looks like a huge army barracks which i dont know what it is but its been mentioned on here before, anyway looking towards the city centre you can see the beethams looming over the tobacco warehouses with what i can only describe as a 'tunnel' used for the scrap metal to go across the street from a building over the road to the scrap metal yard. i think it would make a cracking photo i wish i had a camera on me yesterday.

I found this scene interesting,it was taken in Otterspool,the young lad was just walking alongside the boat,both of them were moving in the same direction,it just looked strange at the time.

Nice shot Paul, looks slightly surreal!

I went down to Otterspool for the first time in years the other week, was pleased to see how busy it was. Lots of people flying kites too.. and it was great to see the Garden Festival Bull back out on display..again looking oddly surreal...

That looks like a great lost Pink Floyd sleeve Tom.

Great photos swjmoore, I love the flags on the fort. They also show what a massive difference Beetham tower has made to our skyline, especially the long distance shots - it really looks like 'somewhere' from a distance now..

Cool Surreal isn`t the word.

Crackin` pics peeps, nice to see the `Princes Garden` (Rice Lane?) still going as I had an excellent night out there with people from work, many, many years ago!

Hope you get your job SJ......
