People and Pigeons

By SlowSong
People crossing Waterloo Bridge with some pigeons hanging about on the wall of Somerset House in the foreground. In the background is the London Eye, some skyscrapers which I can't identify and on the right St Stephen's Tower and the Houses of Parliament behind some trees.

A wonderfully observed and composed photograph the diagonal interchanging lines providing a wonderful lead in as we sit back and admire the image unfold.

I also like the flowing, as it were, horizontal lines contrasting the static upright verticals.

Quite a sombre mood, Chris, strong geometry, and lovely tones. St George's Tower (the one the helicopter clipped) and Millbank Tower are your two missing pieces Smile

the toning is great--the zig zag composition is equally wonderful-
pigeons and people ignoring each other, but you were looking at both!

I like the way you capture people.
This shot is particulary appealing, the iconic BG, the couple walking in one level and pigeons at onother level.
Very well seen! IB

The bridges do make good locations for street photography. London on a normal day....

Too diff to keep every details against a high contrast sky. Cool

A fine composition, Chris, with the foreground zig-zagging its way towards the centre taking our eyes towards the two people, with pigeons and people perfectly positioned Smile

A perfect partnership for a photo, Chris! Looks great in mono.
