Iconic Views                  Page 1 of 4

This month the remit was to produce iconic views of cities (which could of course include Edinburgh). What I expected was the kind of view the tourist might see. What I got was often quite different and again I am impressed by the originality the photographers show. Here is our chosen selection, in random order of photographer. Can you place all the locations?

Bob took many images away from the norm, which engendered lots of discussion. This one caught our eye though - an almost silhouette, dusk shot.

We liked this clash between the scar of the trams and equipment and the classic view of monuments
