T'other Side

By Jasper87  
... of Southwark Bridge, downstream looking West towards the Millennium footbridge and a floating platoon of the Olympic Rings. Low tide again so more of the Thames foreshore is visible. I'm not convinced about the composition so it's on my list of re-visits but it does show the current (pun intended) lighting and detail under the bridge.

Many thaks for your response to Low Tide, very appreciated, and to Mark (TC) for his UA.

Ooops nearly forgot.... Iso400, f11, 1,3sec, 11mm, tripod and remote release.

I like the balanced compo, the colours, lights and details, and the way the Millennium bridge is seen under the arch. A great low light shot!

Your trademark Dave. Love the lights under the bridge but I agree - a return when the tide is in. Nevertheless, an image I would have loved to have taken! Smile

As much as I like your images,
but in this case I have to agree with you:

The lighting on the bridge makes for such a fine shot, captured here at that time of day when there's just some blue left in the sky.

It is good to see things from every angle, even if you compromise
on composition. These images make me feel I'm missing something
by not having been to London for ages.
We have an interesting city centre in Glasgow but it's good to see yours
from every angle.

Hi, Dave, another awesome image, the lighting, exposure and detail are superb, and i agree that another visit at high water is required.Wink would be interesting to see the difference, look forward to that.

Really great image Dave! love all about it, I think the comp is great but ............... Oh dear hope you dont mindSad............If you cropped off 2 of those wooden jobbies in the bottom left, you would still get some of that great railing but less of the sand. I like the low tide because of the wooden jobbies.
Great image DaveGrin

Again the colours of the bridge are great and well caught but I can't help thinking the foreground is drab and dull in comparison. Not sure how that could be amended though, other than by a lower PoV and probably more zoom to avoid an excess of sky.

thought i would have a wander through you PF, before i send another PM about London, and found one i missed (shock horror and lots of apologies Smile ) superb colours in those lights under the bridge, my kit lens on a crop sensor would not do these bridges justice but will be worth while a visit around dusk.
great shot Dave.
