"A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east."
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

The tags say it all - "London, River Thames, Battersea Power Station, Sunset"

Iso400, 1/320s, f20, @20mm. I think I did have my tripod with me but the Thames wall was about 5 ft high and 3 ft wide at this point, so I used the solid concrete as a rest. Probably not needed at 1/320s but I might have just got a bit excited about the colours of the sunset SmileSmile

Just noticed the marks in the sky... can't see them on the original! Mmm, not sure how to correct something I can't see so I will leave this be for the time being.

One of Steinbecks' best known literary pieces followed by , East of Eden and Cup of Gold.

Back to the image, love it Dave, however please forgive me for being so bold, but I do think the right hand side silhouettes are somewhat distracting "Sorry"

Have a great Easter Weekend

The colours at sunset really do come and go and getting excited is something I know all about been there done it at my cost but I won't go into that.......lovely sky with the silhouettes, however the one on the right IMO does not help the comp in my eyes better out than in. Just my little imput the way I see it.

It seem a low light image and I was surprised that you got such a fast shutter speed with aperture of f/20.0, even allowing for the ISO set.
But it seems to have worked very well, capturing the prevailing colours and light: the buildings just fall short of silhouettes as the light is catching here and there.
Interesting cloud patterns and wonderful warmth above the horizon.

Stunning light, and a magnificent sky, a fine sunset exposure.
I used to get similar drying marks on my prints: hardly likely to be the fault here, though.
Love your title and the quotation. I actually used 'The Grapes of Wrath' as a teaching medium in Performing Arts A-Level. These days I'm more concerned about the effects of the wrath of grapes Blush

Great use of the low lighting conditions to create a fine image which I believe is enhanced by cropping off the silhouetted tree on the right hand side. If you hadn't mentioned it I doubt many would have noticed the marks in the sky.

It's an interesting composition, an industrial icon confronting natural growth on the other side of the river. I can imagine a composition without the foliage but it wouldn't keep me looking as long as this has. Nice that you have some detail and texture in the foreground footpath, I think that's important. It's where we are standing, it grounds the image.
It's amazing the way pretty well imperceptible aspects of an original image can be made more noticeable in the resizing/sharpening process. I'm guessing that's what has happened here.

I too think the image would loose if you cropped out the trees on the right Dave, its a great frame. Superb low light shot, love the colours in the sky, and the image has so much depth, looking down river to the bridge... immersive (and I don't mean as if you fell in!!).

A top notch shot.... re the marks in the sky, had to look hard, but I found that using photoshop spot healing tool sometimes leaves this sort of artefact...

Now then...... I decided my verdict before I read the comments, but I have read the comments now..( it took agesTongue) and I havent changed my opinion (for what its worthBlush) So here is my twopenneth...... I like the bushes, and if you cropped you would lose part of the sunset and the bridge, I wouldnt have noticed the marks in the sky had you not said. There is just one thing that i would change, and that is to crop the plane trail at the top, or clone it out.... Maybe cloning would be best so you keep the top of the tree, that I like so much.

Three reasons not to crop out the trees. First, I like the contrast between the industrial, urban image contrasting with the more rural aspect given by the trees. Second, they add balance to the whole image, and third, it makes a good rh frame and keeps our eyes within the frame.

30 Mar 2013 - 11:16 AMConstructive Critique!This comment was flagged as constructive critique! 

I overlooked this because the thumbnail doesn't show the subtle light. It's nice to see folks giving you some genuinely useful critiques instead of just fawning Wink
I agree the light on the buildings is the outstanding aspect of this image. Therefore my opinons are based around doing what ever you can to enhance the impact of that. For me the buildings are probably not large enough in the frame. I agree the trees and top vapour trail can frame the buildings but the top trail is too far away to focus attention on the buildings, so it could go. That would mean either zooming in more at the time or cropping the image now (I've spend loads of time with sheets of paper held against the screen working this out!). Once you crop off the top of the sky, I think you can then lose 50% of the width of the tree silhouette and it still works as a frame but is not longer such a bold distraction. The bottom can be cropped until the opposite bank emerges from the bottom left corner, the reflected towers to work as lead ins but the diagonal of the bank is much more effective so lets use it. Finally the buildings on the left are not that exciting until you reach the metal ?water tower shining in the sun. So crop up to just before it. I think what you end up with is a lead in from the opposite bank, taking the eye along all the great lighting on the buildings which now feature much larger in the frame as the main subject. You retain the depth from the river leading away to the bridge and you keep your arboreal frame on the right.
Hope that meets the terms of your request, there's certainly nothing to be harsh about with this one; the ingredients are all there but just need a little enhancement I think! GrinGrin

Well, Dave, I never thought I would be adding my two-penneth, but here goes. I would have cropped out the wayward contrail; cropped the tree but slightly less than the mods, and would leave the rest alone. The cropping in the mod of the left hand side, gives the image a feeling of being squashed up. As for the mark, maybe an errant gray cloud or perhaps a mothership hoping for a quick power boost Wink. Whatever, another fine low light image, Dave ... Carol

I like this very much Dave. I like how my eye is led along the Thames to that lovely sunset and the general feeling of expanse that London is which is enhanced by the sky. There is plenty going on along the river and into the sunset so the trees on the right are neither here nor there in terms of cropping and probably balance the whole thing - they don't distract my eye at all. One comment I have on the mods is that I do like the reflection on the water from the Power Station in #2 and I'd probably want to feature that along with the great sunset in #1.

A classic view. Could be off a Pink Floyd album cover. Great shot Dave. Paul
