Shard 'n' Tate

By Jasper87  
'Tate' is the Tate Modern on the right, the 'Shard' is, of course, The Shard, separated by the Millennium Bridge, in blue and red this time. This was taken the same evening as my previous but there was no photoshop magic used on the latter, the green/yellow colour was just one of the light displays on the bridge, the long exposure did the rest.

Iso 400, f13, 2.5secs, 10mm, tripod and remote release.

Many thanks for the response to my last, comments are always gratefully received, and to Hugh for his UA, cheers.

Excellent composition - I too like the lamp on the right.
It balances the Tate on left with the Shard under the bridge- you've got us looking all around the image.
I like the red of the Tate.

Like your composition/viewpoint here Dave. The River wall provides a lead in and then the eye is carried up the tie rod and then across the bridge via 'The Shard' on the way.

Brilliant low light night shot, Dave, my eyes are all over the image so much going on of interest, i particularly like the lamp on the left and the movement in the flags above the sea wall, thought they were birds at first, brings the image to life i think, hey what do i know.
well done my friend.

A fab image, but you would never let us down.
thanks for the explanation... that is the answer to my question Smile I always wondered why the colours you got in your night images are different each time. And wondered how you did it,as mine always come out yellow/ white or white-blueish.
btw not quite sure what you meant by res on white ?
