A Little Bit More...

By Jasper87  
Taking a break from Burma... this is a Blue Peter image (one I prepared earlier Grin)

The 'More' refers to this area of London on the South Bank of the River Thames near Tower Bridge called ' More London'. Taken just before Christmas, and the landscape version was used as a base for my 'Christmas Card'.

ISO 400, f22, 1.6secs, 15mm, tripod & remote release, no filters.

The illuminated buildings and lights on the trees captured at this time of day with some light remaining in the sky make for a fine shot, Dave, and your 15mm. focal length has ensured such full DOF.
The Scoop seems well named, taking as it does a scoop out of the f/g.

Nice composition, Dave. The blue mood created here is very soothing to the soul. Nicely done.

VERY nice, Dave. Hey, talk about the "blue hour." The 15mm works well in portrait mode here -- something I wouldn't have guessed.
Thanks for the usual tech info. I must follow your lead and get into the habit of doing that myself.

You are a fake, Sir! If this was a true Blue Peter effort, it would be made from a Fairy Liquid bottle (the old-fashioned round one) and a toilet roll cardboard innerGrinGrin
Not a bad bit of blue though, Dave. Good result.
