View from Barrier Park through the Thames Barrier towards Docklands. Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena in the background. The Park was deserted apart from a few joggers and dog walkers.... and the security guard who was very courteous and no problem when I explained the photos were purely for personal use.

Iso 100, f11, 1/20sec, @67mm. Tripod of course, remote, and I think I dusted off my ND grad for this (0.9, 3 stop)

A brilliant image. he only change I would make is to make this even more of a letterbox. The bright sky at the top distracts and there is a smidge too much water at the base.
