Very good picture, even though slightly too blue/green. Better in some ways than the Hinksey Heights view. Looks wonderfully verdant from this angle.

Is the window, roof or balcony from which this was taken accessible to the public?

How did you attach the "drop down" pictures to the notes?

Yes, top of the stairs in the West Wing. There are likely better spots, but I was more concerned with attending my appointment. ACTIONS drop-down: share HTML/BBCode.
The verdancy hides a multitude of sins.

Yes it does, fortunately, and from the view from Hinksey Heights as well.

Might I suggest that you open this picture in PicMonkey, click Colours, and raise the Temperature setting by about 20 degrees. That will remove the pale blue-green cast and restore the buildings to their natural stone colour. To do this would take under a minute, and you may view the effect before committing to the change.

Happy? It's still a crap picture whatever.

No, because I cannot see any difference. Did you Apply and Save the image after tweaking it?

See my version. The stone is stone colour and the distant hills are green, rather than blue.

Isisbridge has replied to Howard Somerville
I did EXACTLY what you said and raised it 20 degrees, and saved it. You can see the difference if you compare it with the next picture in this stream, which was taken at the same time. They must have blue-shaded glass in that hospital (to match the blue concrete).

It was taken through window glass?? Then it's amazing that the quality is as good as it is.

Well it's passable for the time being. I'm not sure if your suggestion improves it or not. I was feeling nervous about my appointment and had a Scotsman chatting away in my left ear.

Gaudy unnatural blue, Tring greens, rather flat and not enough lead-in.

In other words, a very good picture.

I don't use Tring greens. But glad you like it.
