Newcastle Quayside & Bridges
Another view of Newcastle Quayside & the bridges, taken from the High Level Bridge. The Quayside area was once an industrial estate and busy commercial dockside serving the area, while the Newcastle side hosted a regular street market. In recent years the docks became run down & has since been redeveloped to provide modern arts, music culture plus a new housing development. Along the Newcastle side is an area that houses restaurants, bars, and night clubs as well as housing and the Newcastle Law Courts. There is also a Quayside beach where there is a volleyball net & also deckchairs for you to sit & soak up the sun. Quayside is also the name of the street running along the Newcastle riverside. The Gateshead side is known as Gateshead Quays where there is the Baltic & The Sage. The main feature at the Quayside is the pedestrian Millennium Bridge.

Now there's another lovely view. I was going to query your comment about "sitting in the sun" but I guess even the North Pole gets some sunny days You can see where the builders of the Sydney Harbour bridge got their inspiration from.

Another nice view of the bridges, from the other side I think. Pin sharp with lots of detail to look at.
Also just noticed two things Helen, Nikon D7000 have you bought a new camera?
Then Perfect Photo suite 8, I have just installed the trial but my first impression is that I don't like it, may try it a bit more though. But perhaps photo editing software is what you get used to using, so it seems strange.
Anyway good luck with it, will look forward to seeing some more edits.

Thank you Alan & Jeffrey for your comments. I still have the Canon, Jeffrey but kept finding it rather heavy more so with the 24-105 lens on, so I decided to get a second hand Nikon & see how I found it & have found it a lot lighter to carry, & with having neck & shoulder problems. I am now undecided which one to keep. You never know I may keep them both, still early days yet. Photo Suite 8 we had a trial run then hubby decided to buy it at the special offer so i put it on my computer as well to use along with CS4

Late in here but agree with the comments above. Another super shot Helen.
Excellent work.

Again a very good shot

I like this Helen but prefer the other one! DSLRs are dead heavy aren't they! I spent a year (before I became a 'student') checking out what was on the market and after I'd honed my wish list down to 4, the deciding factor in the end was the weight! Think John is right about the editing software - this has a distinctly different edit to it compared to the other... Great shot though and would love to have a go on that swing-bridge!

Thank you for your comments Still undecided about the cameras still find the Canon very heavy but time will tell. yes the editing is different to adobe, Barbara but hubby bought it so I shall plod along with it.
