Greenwich Again

By SlowSong
Due to adverse weather conditions (albeit not as bad as some) I haven't been out much so this is another view over Greenwich from half way up the hill taken a couple of weeks ago. Given a bit of a desaturation treatment and touch of sepia just because I liked the look. Smile

I'm awaiting a new Canon 40mm 2.8 pancake lens which is a reasonable price as looks quite handy. I think I'm going to try a few trips out using just that one lens as soon as it stops raining. I find a 50mm lens a bit too long but the size of the 40mm (rather nearer a 35mm which I can't afford) means I can just pop it into a bag on my DSLR. Of course I don't need it, but it got good write-ups.

Cheers
Chris SmileSmileSmile

That is an attractive tone, especially for a cityscape such as this.

An unusual view from this 'neck of the woods', given the 60s treatment. Looks good, Chris.

I like the look of this too, reminds of an old postcard.

Now, Chris, if you had bought the EM-5 you could have gone out in the rain with it.

I stupidly reset the camera the other day and have spent 1 hr this morning getting the settings right again. Then, on dpreview.com I found a whole thread with real photos showing how to get the most of the camera! Whoppee

The toning works very well on this fine view. Good luck with your new lens.

The house I grew up in was just off the right-hand side of the image! I've always loved Greenwich and you've given an image that accentuates that, a great image Chris!

A very fine capture, Chris Smile Think you've got a long wait for better weather, I don't think it's ever going to stop raining! Sad

Great shot, I like the use of the branches breaking up the sky, almost like forks of lightning.
