I prefer this colour version: the complementary blue stones and rusty ironwork go so well together.

I agree with you, Stevie! But the other one wasn't so rusty and the relief was not good visible. So I increased the contrast, and in this case I thought it looked better in b&w.

btw What's about sewer-caps in London? Would like to have some in my group. ;-)

That will teach me for being lazy - I just assumed these were two variants of the same image!! :( Now I look properly at the B&W photo, I agree that it is also beautiful in its own way!

I will try and capture some of these in London, although I don't think we have such impressive ones over here!

We have no for sure so beautiful here, in Sofia!

They both look very nice, Volker! Very precise shots!

Thanks, Geri and Stevie!!!
No problem Stevie, they're looking very similar. But I think you're wrong that there no nice sewer-caps in London. Look here:

You're sure Geri? I'm sure if there some, you'll find them. :-)

Goodness, I'd no idea that manhole covers were such a niche art-form! I will definitely have to try and find some for you, Volker!

Hehe... Thanks Stevie! I'm curious. :-)
