Back breaking labour

These poor little guys have got the whole world on their back... erm, or the whole coliseum at least. It's actually the building of the English National Opera. Nearest tube stop is Leicester Square if you're interested to watch something (they do ballet as well). If you haven't seen an opera or ballet before, I well recommend it - tickets cost only slightly more than going to the cinema.

If you're a new visitor to my photoblog, a warm welcome to you. Don't be shy to post a comment below. A simple note saying "thumbs up" or "horrid" is fine. No need to worry about technical detail. In either case, I'd love to receive some comments from you. Running a daily photoblog is very taxing, so some comments from you guys will help keep me going.

Hey dude, nice shot. IMHO i think it needs more contrast.
Yup I agree with Ade's comments....

Now unto the none tech comment, Are you an Opera fan?

Opera yes, but ballet not really (unless you get good seats). Strangely enough, I'm always reading the subtitles at the opera and my attention is not focused on the stage. I just sit there enjoying what comes through my ears.

However, for ballet, there's no subtitles to read. So if you get the restricted view seat, you lose track of the action whenever the dancer goes out of the stage. It can then be difficult to pick up the story later again.
