Default City of London Construction - Photo Project

I was on the Charing Cross Road today (23/10/09), in London.
I have started a new project where I want to document the construction that is going on in the city of London. God knows, there is so much being built!

Hi Paul

In the jpeg I am losing the detail in the bottom part of the picture, which I suspect is important to really give it purpose. As aprt of a series I think it will work well, but for me it is not quite complete on it's own.

I agree with Mike on this one. For this picture, I would prefer color to make the crane ( ! ) contrast
with the sky, sidewalk, scaffolding etc.

Regards.

The image is quite colourful, but I think it detracts from the analogy i'm presentin' with drilling and the guy in the sign.
