Docklands Dusk

By ghibby  
Shot a couple of weeks ago in the London Docklands. This image was shot from the south dock on a clear night shortly after sunset. I waited until the balance of remaining natural light and artificial light was just right to balance the image with some colour remaining in the sky and detail visible in the stone work. I used a long exposure to smooth out the ripples in the water and create a nice silky and semi-reflective surface. Very little done in post processing, just the RAW conversion and correcting the verticals as I had to tilt the camera up slightly to get the whole skyline in the frame.

Exposure 30 seconds @ F11.0 and ISO 50 with 24 mm Focal Length

Eye catching shot. Looks like a very patient shot taken at just the right time of day.

Great composition and idea may have been better still if there was
a little less light in the sky.
