Im sure it's a view that's been done a million times, but even though I lived in London for nearly twenty years I never took a picture of Big Ben (I know that's not the name of the clock tower, but lets face it it's Big Ben to most of the world).
Anyway, here is my contribution to the archive!
This really is a superb photo and the first one I see of 'Big Ben ' from this angle !! I love the composition here as well !! Excellent Lee !! So, number one million and one is a winner
Really good image, the choice of long exposure has made it different from all the others.
The long exposure gives a lovely cloud halo to the Clock Tower. A classic view well converted to mono, Lee.
(your camera is still on BST )
Ah so it is Dave... To be honest so is my mind though, struggling with these winter mornings!
I love the impression of ice on the water
This is a really good take on a traditional theme. The stillness of the water and the gritty graininess of the sky make it stand out from the crowd. .....Peter
wonderful exposure Lee brilliant detail and tones a cracking mono nice one
A beautifully worked image of this most famous of scenes Lee. The exposure and composition for me is spot on as one would expect from such a notable photographer.
Excellent capture. There is a clarity in your picture. I like it
Great comp and mono shot, love that smooth looking Thames water, Peter..
I like your 1950s look a lot here, great tones. Guess what, I have never stood at that spot although I have been many times to London with the OH
Guess I don't have the appropriate views of Paris or bordeaux either
Neither had I Annette, one of the pleasurable things about photography for me is it makes me pay a bit more attention to my surroundings whilst trying to find the best viewpoint
Great comp and a fantastic pov. Also looks great in mono
just looked. just superb, you really have an eye. love the grain, and the thames looks just creamy. PoV, DoF and comp. are spot on. no criticism.
Perhaps a traditional composition but why not: like your processing and presentation here, Lee.
The exposure tone and detail are spot on, great image mate.
I recently took shots from the exact same spot (my partner just remarked on it upon seeing your photo!) I lived and worked in London many years ago, but this was also the first time I'd returned to take photos of Big Ben.
Excellent work. I feel inspired to do a bit of work on my efforts and maybe post my own now!
Cheers -- Steve
Im dying to go back and do all the landmarks now. Somebody uploaded a shot the other day from this spot too, but the tide was higher and the light more interesting (it was basically a much better shot than mine!). Look forward to seeing yours if you post it

Found mine, did a bit of Lightroom work on it and posted it.
Tide was high in mine and different lens was used, but I think we stood in exactly the same spot - what do you reckon?
Down to a few inches Id say judging by the distance between the two yellow markers!
