Lights, Camera, Action...

By Jasper87  
Iso100, f18, 13secs, tripod, remote, no filters. CS5 and Topaz Denoise. Auto focus, AWB, manual exposure fine tuned in Live View.

I'd rather the street light wasn't there but wanted a wider view for this one and options were limited due to walls and fences.

Ron and I have been wanting to this shot for ages and have only just discovered how to get to the viewpoint! But I don't think we'll get anything to match yours - it's excellent!!

Thanks for my very interesting comment on the dog at the train window, I always enjoy reading your comments.

A lot going for this one, Dave. I particularly like the lights reflecting of the train tracks.
Brilliant low light image as always Dave.. You've made a rather ugly day time scene into a thing of night beauty.. Starburts are excellently placed.Wink

You have a great following for this one DaveBlush
About mine that day was probably the worst I have
created pictures in you could hardly stand up with
rain and wind but it suits me that everybody was inside having
a coffee.Grin WesternRed.

I don't mind the street light as I think it gives balance to the image and relates nicely to the star-burst lights.

14 Apr 2013 8:44PM

A very well deserved 98 votes and awards.

A brilliant well composed image the curvature towards Battersea power station (I assume) is just spectacular. The light on the chimneys is equisite. This certainly is a masterclass in urban photography and camera control.

Bang on.
