England Swings...

By Jasper87  
England swings like a pendulum do
Bobbies on bicycles, two by two
Westminster Abbey the tower of Big Ben
The rosy red cheeks of the little children

A standard postcard image this morning.. all the exif seems to have been stripped on this one?? But i know it was taken on a tripod with remote!!Grin

An unusual POV and choice of format, both of which add extra impact to this Westminster shot. Excellent.

Perhaps a classic PC shot (given the subject that might mean postcard as well as politically correct), but it's the light reflecting in the Thames that really makes this one stand out.
Best of luck with the GEA task........not something I could ever do as, b/o pain when seated, I could never sit at the computer long enough to view all.

A well captured low light image, I do like the format and for me works well there's something about night shots that touch my inner thoughts, good work Dave.

Excellent capture of this fine old bridge with the mental asylum on the left! I think that's what it is as it is full of crazy rich people. Rather you than me with GA, did it last year very time consuming Dave.

Looks very Harry Potter with the lead in of winking street lights which is a great feature and this PoV is more unusual too. The long light reflections help balance the tower though they might have looked better if a longer exposure was possible? Being picky there is a halo around the rooftops on the right but it's small and not really distracting. Don't know if that happened in-camera or when processing?

One of my earliest night images (way back long before digital was even thought of) was taken of the Big Ben clocktower and Westminster Bridge, from several yards to the right, looking over the bridge towards the clocktower. A great scene, nicely captured Dave, with some good reflections Wink
