Morning Colin, very well composed image, its been along time since I have seen that sky line, for me it has to be V2.

Morning, Colin,
Nice shot of Canary Wharf with the recognisable skyline features - I prefer the coloured V 1 to the mono, but both versions are very good.

I like the inclusion of the FG tress here Colin.Good contrast with the straight lines of the buildings.Gotta ba colour for the browns.

I think it's the contrast between the wonderfully coloured trees in the fg with the stark shapes of the buildings which really makes this a rather special view of Canary Warf. Just has to be the colour for me fpr the sake of those wonderful trees.

Wow Mari, This is a great view of London!! like the contrast you have with the golden colour of the trees in foreground then away with those huge buildings...a star shot.
Thanks for sharing yesterday..was a great day! and loads of fun.....

Normally like mono but in this case I feel the colour holds more interest. Interesting contrast between man-made structures and the incongruous trees in the foreground. Would maybe have like to see a little more of the trees to 'ground' the picture but realise that's difficult from a train. Minor point. Looks like the buildings a rising like phoenixes from the jungle! Impressive.Paul

Great capture but version one for me even though as PaulLiley I do prefer Mono usually.

A very fine composition and I prefer the colour version because there is some tone in the sky which has been lost in mono conversion.

I used to see almost this view when driving in to collect my husband from work sometimes (usually if the trains were up the creek or he worked late) I enjoy the golden light here.

Thanks for the comments folks the trees end quickly and the roofs of terraced housing takes over so I cropped to the start of the trees , thanks for the mod too Albert appreciate the time Colin
23 Mar 2010 9:14AM
Like the contrast between the softness of the trees in the foreground and the stark buildings beyond. V1 for me because of the warmth of the colours.

At first I thought, "No way I'd prefer mono with those beautiful trees"...and then I looked at V2. Yup...definitely mono for me, Colin Smile The buildings in there look like wonderful fine ink sketches, you know?

maryg 14 66 18 Scotland
23 Mar 2010 7:37PM
LOve the russet tones of the trees against the starkness of the buildings but, for overall quality and atmosphere it has to be the mono for me.

Love this, for me the colour appeals. Still trying to catch up.
A great capture I would be interested to see how it looks with the leaves on the trees?
