I waited for 4 hours in cold, it was freezing but I knew is going to come, and it came, the light! I got back home happy.

Fabulous light and this jumped out from the thumbnails. Personally I would remove the web address from the bottom right corner though, or make it more discreet - bit distracting.

Hi jeanie, thanks for your comments. You are right but I got of my some pictures stolen and used on other websites, hence the (rather annoying) watermark.
I canít anyway replace the photo now, can I?

Ion

p.s. by the way, you some great shots in your Portfolio

Wonderful light well worth the wait in the cold.
Very hard to say if your watermark would stop the image from being
stolen or not may be we all have to think about this and some form of metadata protection is required .

Indeed rbai2007, isnít photography about planning, patience and perseverance? And these not only applies on landscape or cityscape work, I think thy also apply on other areas of photography as well.

I teach photography and I always highlight these aspects to my students: photography is planning, patience, determination and passion all of these in conjunction with some good technical skills.

JeniTLC - indeed, this is one of my favourite subjects in London. You can't believe that this building is derelict. It is a ruin which decays so gracefully without any visible marks of vandalism. In my humble opinion, this is one of the most beautiful and sexy architectural pieces in the world.

By the way, there is a great regeneration project on this area http://www.battersea-powerstation.com/#/home. Not really happy with the fact that the view of the station will be somewhat blocked, so, Londoners, hurry up to take some great shots

andylea: indeed, I felt so happy as my patience has paid off.

Cheers
Ion
