Symmetry of light and shadows

By Richsr
Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload of a while ago now, and thanks to ColleenW for her UA very much appreciated.

A holiday and then a major computer failure has seen no time of for image processing etc, I seem to have spent every night trying to get various programs back to my setting. Fortunatley my data was safe.
A few lessons learnt which I may well share sometime.

Know this has been done lots of times but I didn't have one from this location so whilst in London I paid a visit and was rewarded with this. (processed pre crash)

Thanks for looking

Regards Richard

Great looking image and makes me jealous that I haven't got a shot like it Wink Full sympathy about the crash as my hard disk failed over the summer and , as you say, reinstalling is just the beginning. I still have programs that need me to tweak settings and find installation codes etc Sad

I've never been here, but this building was just designed for us photographers! Wink A cracking shot, Richard, and lucky to have some sunlight coming in and casting wonderful shadows of the roof's framing Smile
