Summer Night City

By Jasper87  
Last one for now... honest. St Paul's creeping in on the far right, the red line is London Bridge, and HMS Belfast, under the bridge, is joining in with the coloured light changes. The lights on the towers at this moment are actually advertising, one is EDF energy, whom I suspect are sponsoring the light show as it followed on after a few minutes.

Iso 200, f16, 1.6sec, 32mm. Tripod and remote release.

Spectacular image, Dave. The orange color on the horizon has enhanced the beauty of the picture. Deep

A fine composition, Dave, with so much included I could spend ages working out what is where (not being that familiar with London geography).
Beautifully exposed with so much verging on the silhouette but with just the necessary amount of light spread over the frame.
A beautiful shot and one which is great advert for the City.

A really beautiful lowlight photograph depicting this wonderful section of our great City. A rather brilliant pov, and what some may regard as (including myself) a fantastic composition. All put together in your own unique style.

All three have been excellent each in their own way.

Another nicely composed and lit image Dave. A few days time you will make it over Tower bridge, you should head up the Shard if you have a head for heights Smile Only 25 to go up to view London Smile
