I thought some of us might appreciate this establishment, which grabs my attention because that freshly painted red is just amazing. There's certainly no chance of missing it as we pass by.....



It was shot on my MX-1, which sits permanently in my jacket pocket, just waiting for everyday scenes and events to grab my attention.
Best regards, John

The option always exists to clone out the telegraph pole, but I've been steadily moving away from doing so. I just feel we can see a place as it really is, minimising distractions by viewpoint maybe, but not actually altering reality.

On the other hand, if the pole intrudes some may well prefer to remove it, and if so fair enough, it's their interpretation.
Best regards, John

Now that really is RED!

For me it's not the telegraph pole, but the shadow across the junction that distracts.

You will find it down Brewery Street in Leigh, Lancashire. You certainly won't miss it when you get there!
Best regards, John

Had many a fine Ale in that very establishment.. Though funnily enough. Ive never had the urge to photograph it on the way home... Maybe my priorities are all out of kilter...

I think the pole works actually, the foreground pole shadow points to the base of the pole which leads the eye across the most colourful section. A quiky and unusual use of lines.

Looks a complete nightmare to me -

A pub with a No Entry sign in front of it

I like the shot, although I'd probably have tried moving to the left (risking the road) to move the pole away from the sign (hindsight is wonderful). I'd probably consider cropping it tighter to the pub and and above the shadow in the foreground. The pole is part of the street furniture and immediately in front of the subject, you can't retain the character of the shot if you remove it. You could clone it out then run a 'watercolour' or similar filter over it perhaps for an artists impression.

Would standing on the opposite corner have been a better viewpoint
