    Howard says
    “The Imperial War Museum North has so many perspectives that trying to represent it with a single shot was tough. I was very happy with this composition, which captures the angular nature of the building perfectly.”

    Paul says
    “This is Howard’s hero shot – it’s a smashing image and exactly the sort of picture I would have wanted to come away with myself.  Here’s what I like about it. Howard’s been really lucky with the eddy-like clouds.

    “A pure blue sky wouldn’t have been as interesting.  The super-wide lens has created great three-dimensional form. Howard has chosen the vantage point well, crouching under the end of the building with the 10-20mm zoom.”
