Fascinating for a foreigner as me Smile If making any changes next time it would be to consider what people should be in the frame and what is their stories.

Thank you, John and Ellie, for your kind comments.

Normally I like not to have people in my photographs, Ellie, and so it is very difficult for me to take photographs with people in them!

I like everything about this, the composition is superb, like the inclusion of the bridge, the people walking out of shot and the person walking in/down the steps - excellent photography!

Lovely image Ian. The light just sets it off nicely and I never tire of seeing images of this building.

I think you've put yourself down on this one. I love the character at the top of the steps.

A 'bit of a cliche'? No, it 'rocks'! Beautiful light, rhythms and viewpoint.

What an exceptional image! The composition is very strong

This is a very impressive shot. It has the kind of pro stock photo look. The people do make the shot seem more powerful.

As for the stain.... well its the corner of a wall... what do you expect a dog to do! Wink

probably the best of the light !! it's a pretty safe composition but always works, look fwd to the Tower bridge shot ian.....
IanFlindt 13 740 21 United Kingdom
1 Oct 2008 10:24AM
Thanks, Kevin.

The Tower Bridge shot was rather disappointing when viewed large - not sure it's worth keeping.

Great shot.

It's that classic view that even I'm familiar with. But this has MUCH better light than what I usually see from there.

Thanks, Bill and Patrick. It is a bit of a cliche, Patrick, but I couldn't help myself!

I think this is a super image Ian, which I could see being on some tourist brochure or some such thing.

It's been done before but this is done so well your forgiven. Great lighting in this. Sorry for bringing the cloud & the cough!

Dave, Martin and Chris - thank you.

I think it would require a little cloning out of tarpaulins and dog stains beforehand, though, Martin. Smile

I'd rather have you, your cough and the cloud than no you, no cough and no cloud, Chris. Smile

Very nice image Ian and the coloured version seems to have brought it to life.........Bev
