Taken a couple of weeks ago liked the light.

Handheld 1/180 sec at F6.7 Iso 100... but hugely manipulated as always.

Best wishes

Love your processing Robert. I like the swirls and movement in the sky contrasting with the solid shapes and lines of the buildings.
Lovely light on the buildings.

What a perfect time of day to take this one! I really love it, wonderful light on the buildings especially catching the side of Big Ben! A fantastic sky as a backdrop too - excellent work!
