Walking towards Great Portland Street a few weeks back I realised that what used to be called the GPO tower was stretching above me. It was a sunny day which meant lots of reflections and was perfect for the sort of image I had in mind.
2 separate images blended and processed in Silver FX pro and CS6.

Great shot and processing, I took a similar image last year (by similar it was of the Telecom tower - but not quite this quality)

Love this. Feels like I'm in a big city and awed by the size of the buildings. Excellent processing too.........Sandy

Dramatic angle and highly satisfying arrangement of the four buildings. The high contrast GPO tower steals the show but the others are beautiful like the prows of ships. I particularly like the reflection of the GPO tower in the right hand building. Love the crisp sharp processing tool Smile

The perfect image for you Derek, a grand place, small now in comparison to some of the newer buildings.
I was in the revolving part of th tower many years ago, standing with a foot on the moving part and one on the stationary.
A very strange sensation especially after a few gins.
