My favourites from a couple of hours spent exploring the city on Sunday. Weather was perfect and I very much enjoyed exploring this city properly for the first time. I always intended to convert these all to B&W so went looking for interesting light. I got quite lucky I think. I'd be interested to get your thoughts on the B&W conversions and any other C&C. Apologies if the number of photos comes across as a bit self indulgent! Thanks.

Great set of pictures Matt from my home patch. Sunday's sunshine helped you capture excellent lighting and I think the black and white conversions are excellent. I'm intriguied to know how you got some of those high level shots in The Side area, you must have been on the top floor of one of the Quayside buidings.

There are some good images to choose from, but I like #15 with the seating area in amongst those chimneys, alongside the rest of the city on the horizon.

Thanks, David.
All the high level shots were taken from the Tyne bridge.

It is a beaut set of images Matt, and looks great in BW. If I had to pick a favourite (or two) from this set, it would be 4, 15, 18 and 19.

Wow - a fantastic set! great B/W conversions and it looks as if you had a great day. Impossible to really pick a fave although I really like No 15... I have a thing at the moment for pics taken from on high...

Great stuff - well taken!

it is an amazing set but did you have to post so many images together?

my internet connection is abysmal and its taken about 90 seconds for this page to load tonight, I've tried several times before to view this thread and given up because it was taking so long for the page to load

Those photos bring back happy memories of my youth. I especially like 15 and 19. The BW conversions are very nicely done and the images are beautifully sharp. Is this the 17-70?

Best wishes, Kris.
