I've seen these buildings used in similar shots. Love the use of the plane, which gives a great focal point.

Excellent, Derek. Such strong shapes with the plane at the focal point. Pre-conceived, or spotted at the scene?? I spent ages looking up under the Shard a few weeks ago, but a plane never arrived Sad.

Brilliant composition, Derek. Now how long did you have to wait lying on your back or with neck craned to get that plane flying over? Congratulations!

I have done a couple of recce's with a compact before going up there with the DSLR, so I had good idea of what the composition would look like . The planes were a surprise though and something that I reacted to in the moment. Saying that this was not the first frame I took. the planes were flying over at approximately 1 minute intervals and I was there for over an hour. Sometimes they flew through the gaps and I still missed them. This was my favourite from about 25 'successful' shots with planes in different positions.

I dont have a right angle viewfinder attachment which would have made using the tripod possible so I took the shots hand held using live view on the screen. My neck and arms were definitely feeling the strain after an hour Alun.

A striking architectural shot Derek, your composition and dramatic angle really works well with sharp lines of the buildings, the plane......well it just makes the shot for me with the reflection as well, patience very well rewarded I think.

Derek - that is just brilliant. Would have been good without the plane but the timing and positioning of that make it just superb. Outstanding
