Very good composition, Lee... I like that it's off center! Like

Lovely grey moody shot again, your forte perhaps?... Cant see any middle eastern chaps flying ultralights into these twin towers....

Yes, I like things off centre Marlene, its more pleasing on the eye :)

Cheers Lex, well since I have started tone mapping, you'll be seeing lots of images from me with these sorts of skies, they add so much to the image. The thing with England is its more often than not cloudy, dull or overcast. And its so hard not to get a washed out sky in an image when you expose for the ground. I sometimes use graduated filters, but not very often. Tone mapping seems to bring out the definition in what would normally look flat on a straight shot. The HDR can look a little unrealistic, but I try not to over do it...its a technique I'm really enjoying right now :) Nope don't think these towers have anything to worry about :)
