Hi,
This was taken at Canary Wharf on a misty morning. It was strange not seen the top of the City Group building.
Cheers
Marc
PS: before anyone asks I have no idea why the clock has 11 on it.

I don't normally like selective coloring, but I rather like this one.

Good image. For once the selective colouring works well, as it serves to de-emphasise the tress on the left.

Powerful image with great atmosphere.

The clock looks like the official Swiss railway clocks. I only thought I'd mention it as I recently read an article on them being included in the Design Museum. They don't have an '11' on though so the mystery continues!

This has a great surreal quality to it which is enhanced by the strange No.11.
A splendid picture.
