Great shots. I love HDR. Just have to find the time to experiment with it.

HDR is "high dynamic range", a term coined for combining multiple exposures to get all parts of the image exposed

Thanks for the comments guys, might get it blown up for my wall, but not sure if I want reminding that I live in Manchester

unfortunately not, was just a typical sunny day with blue sky and white fluffy clouds HDR just makes it look extremely moody.

Long time no see Tom. You've made the town hall interesting, somebody had to do it.
