You mentioned composition to me very recently, Dave, but I always take time to appreciate your shots as compositionally they teach us so much.
Here the vegetation above and below leave a triangle within the frame in which Tower Bridge sits so comfortably.
With the wide angle lens and f/13.0 you have such excellent detail at all levels.
And finally there's a nice balance between sunlit and shadowed areas.
Beautifully crafted shot from a well chosen viewpoint.

Rock solid composition, Dave, with a good tonal balance thanks to that lit foreground.
Even though the mood is one of serene calm, all those lines heading left create a slight tension that keeps me looking.
Beautifully done.

This confirms my belief that the only way to get people free shots in a major city is to be there at dawn in Midsummer! Lovely shot.

The composition and exposure are fantastic, Dave.

But the highlight for me is the dappled light on the flowers and the cobbled path.

Cracking angle and framing and I really like the way the wall, path and bank lead the eye left to the start of the bridge span which then takes over as guide. Has an HDR look to it? but not overcooked to my eye so well done! I suppose in an ideal word Mark would have let you stand on his shoulders so you could separate the fence from the bridge tower bases but you just can't get the staffers these days Wink

Beautifully composed Dave for all the reasons already mentioned.
I like those seats tucked away from which you could hardly see the bridge.
How did you pick up so many words from songs? I like your quotes.

You have composed this with the skill of a photographer. I see this as being made up of three triangles Dave..The flowers... The overhanging branches..... and the central portion I suggest none of this happened by accident.
