Balmoral Hotel

and

Duke of Wellington

The Location

This view is taken from the steps of Register House at the East End of Princes Street, looking almost directly into the sun (with a bit of lens flare at the bottom of the photo) towards:

-  The statue of Wellington (the 'Iron Duke') in bronze by Steele.

-  the clock tower of the Balmoral Hotel, formerly the North British Railway Hotel.

Altered Image

There are a limited number of tones in this picture, but this can be changed with a little manipulation in Photoshop, resulting in an image that takes on a more surreal and three-dimensional appearance.  Please click on the image below to see the result:
