Did it need the treatment Bill - I think there is a good B&W shot lurking in there! The light on the tow path is particularly pleasing!
Bill Phillips: This is choccie box Brum Mike, all soft focus and dreamy. I'll do the b&w one of these days when I'm in blackdog modegrin
Nowhere near as good as my snaps mate. btw where is the next BP video?
Bill Phillips: Well of course they can't hold a candle to yours Chad. Next video? What next videogrin

Lovely soft image Bill
Bill Phillips: Thanks mate
And a very good job you did too.
Bill Phillips: Well I have to support my father's birthplace!
Very nicely done Bill smile
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Linda
Stunning shot Bill, love the view from this angle especially the reflections with the rising mist. Visited your other site and I see we are the same age and born in the same month. No wonder I like your images so much.
Bill Phillips: So it's the big 60 for you this year too John. I did the other site for a bit of fun and as practice for setting one up for our Lions club!
I like this soft-focus finish once again Bill.
Bill Phillips: This whole series (apart from 1) is soft focus stuff Brian, so I hope you won't get bored!
Wonderfully dreamy Bill
Bill Phillips: Thanks Janet, dreamy was the idea
lovely lovely shot and tarting up Billsmile
Bill Phillips: I love the expression tarted up!!
Wow, very beautiful! The dreamy and misty looks is great.
Bill Phillips: Dreamy was the idea so i'm pleased it seems to have worked.

Arrghhh! Give me Simon & Garfunkel's version of the song any day! I like the mistiness in this very much; looks more like the country then Birmingham.
Bill Phillips: I have got both versions and much as i love the S&G one there is something very poignant about Cash's version
I've been waiting all day to see this. Looked at thumbnails at 7am and have not had a chance since. I loved this shot then.I have to put it in my likey file too.

About this version of the song. Many people hate it but I just put it on a special CD I had made for an occasion with friends. I like Johnny in it very much but Fiona is not at her best here.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mary. I bought the CD this is on and my favourite track is his version of Desperado.
And Birmingham does need tarting up Bill, A good feel to this Bill.
Bill Phillips: Brum is not so bad. In the 70's it was awful but there has been a lot of improvement

You have made the main sewer look inviting, Bill...well done!
Bill Phillips: Compared with how it used to be the canal is crystal clean these days!
fabulous shot
Bill Phillips: Cheers mate!!
Best of the 3 for me Bill
Bill Phillips: I wouldn't argue with that, I certainly took the most trouble over this one!
