Really good image, the choice of long exposure has made it different from all the others.

The long exposure gives a lovely cloud halo to the Clock Tower. A classic view well converted to mono, Lee.

Ah so it is Dave... To be honest so is my mind though, struggling with these winter mornings!

This is a really good take on a traditional theme. The stillness of the water and the gritty graininess of the sky make it stand out from the crowd. .....Peter

A beautifully worked image of this most famous of scenes Lee. The exposure and composition for me is spot on as one would expect from such a notable photographer.

I like your 1950s look a lot here, great tones. Guess what, I have never stood at that spot although I have been many times to London with the OH Smile
Guess I don't have the appropriate views of Paris or bordeaux either Smile

Neither had I Annette, one of the pleasurable things about photography for me is it makes me pay a bit more attention to my surroundings whilst trying to find the best viewpoint

Perhaps a traditional composition but why not: like your processing and presentation here, Lee.

I recently took shots from the exact same spot (my partner just remarked on it upon seeing your photo!) I lived and worked in London many years ago, but this was also the first time I'd returned to take photos of Big Ben.
Excellent work. I feel inspired to do a bit of work on my efforts and maybe post my own now!

Im dying to go back and do all the landmarks now. Somebody uploaded a shot the other day from this spot too, but the tide was higher and the light more interesting (it was basically a much better shot than mine!). Look forward to seeing yours if you post it
cheers

Found mine, did a bit of Lightroom work on it and posted it.
Tide was high in mine and different lens was used, but I think we stood in exactly the same spot - what do you reckon?

Down to a few inches Id say judging by the distance between the two yellow markers!
