That's a lovely square - somehow your processing makes it almost look flat- like a painting - what did you do with this one? Excellent song & band!
Bill Phillips: Made it look flat. I used ShiftN and it went all peculiar so then I put it in topaz and ended up with this. The church known as the Boston stump is actually lovely inside and has featured on my bloggo before
Boston were a great group in their time ...

I have no comment on the image twiddling
Bill Phillips: Boston were as dreary as this picture Richard

You were able to stuff a lot into this image, Bill! I especially like the brickwork surrounding the main statue.
Bill Phillips: I think stuff describes this well. the more I look at it the worse it gets

I never heard the town name Boston in England -Boston in the States, yes! Your processing may have transformed a bit the look of the cathedral, the statue, the square, but it all looks interesting and surely worth to be visited.
Bill Phillips: The church known as the Boston stump has features here before. It is a very nice church indeed

A fine little town definitely worth a visit: you can see that church the Stump from many miles distant.Who's the dude on the plinth?
Bill Phillips: The stump is well worth a visit and Boston is a pleasant little town. I thought the bloke on the plinth might be one of Chad's ancestors
Very crisp and clean, and postcard standard - even the street and round "square" are clean. Strange mix of statues on the pillar.
Bill Phillips: Unreal isn't it?

I've never been to this part of England; it looks very attractive. Not too crowded and no litter.
Bill Phillips: The town was quite busy as it was market day but Boston is worth a visit

Only went once - a totally unmemorable experience - it probably rained.
Bill Phillips: The stump...that's the church i have distorted into a totally unreal shape is well worth a look inside
My eyes are bad the clouds are moving.
Bill Phillips: Nothing moving here Mick, just bad processing leaving a picture that looks like a low budget computer game scene
Remember the song and group well Bill, great song and capture.
Bill Phillips: I have to confess I don't like Boston the band much. The town is nice though

I scrolled down expecting you or something, to appear. This looks like a pop-up book: the flatness of the buildings etc? Boston Track - Great!
Bill Phillips: The more i look at this picture the worse it gets. I was never all that keen on the band
Very stark feeling from the processing.
Bill Phillips: it's 'orrible Mary

Why does that church look like a 3-d cardboard model?
Bill Phillips: Why was this rubbish ever inflicted on nice shutterchance people?
Interesting twiddling. how an earth do you get a flat pack Church.
Bill Phillips: Just lucky i guess

Lol at your reply on Chris' comment! You are right: Chad Gutteridge's ancestor, bringing the first piped water...
"A statue of the founder of The Illustrated London News, Herbert Ingram is now located in front of The Stump (see photograph). The statue was designed by Alexander Munro and was unveiled in October, 1862. The allegorical figure, at the base of the monument, is a reference to Ingram's efforts to bring the first piped water to the town. He was also instrumental in bringing the railways to Boston. Born in nearby Paddock Grove, son of a butcher,[16] he was also MP for Boston, from 1856, until his death in 1860, in a shipping accident on Lake Michigan."
Bill Phillips: Chad's influence is everywhere Philine. The illustrated London news was a fine journal

Well, you have got a lot in, Bill
Bill Phillips: True...value for money, that's my motto
Interesting Bill, the 'business' of people in an otherwise seemingly tranquil setting and the statue looking almost like something from a stage set. I must go there sometime.
Bill Phillips: The Boston stump which is the church is well worth a visit
Your PP makes this place looking somehow unreal Bill!
Bill Phillips: sure does Richard smile
Quite a surreal combination of treatment and perspective going on here Bill, but I like it! Seems to be some lens distortion going on, but I view these things as adding character.
Bill Phillips: Very wide angle and then attacked by shiftN which did wondrously strange things to the church. Then had Topaz thrown at it. The more I look at this picture the worse it getsgrin

PS love the music smile
Bill Phillips: I never liked it but I have a short series (3) of this sort of connection between music and picture. Creative or what? grin
Good angle on this Bill smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks John. I think the Boston stump may never recover
I might be an East Anglian but I have never been to Boston, only having seen the stump from some miles away, but I do remember you saying it is a nice place.
Bill Phillips: It is well worth a visit if you can Brian. nice little town too

Bill Phillips: A cool dude strutting his stuff
