By Strobe
This was taken at Canary Wharf on a misty morning. It was strange not seen the top of the City Group building.
PS: before anyone asks I have no idea why the clock has 11 on it.

I don't normally like selective coloring, but I rather like this one.

Good image. For once the selective colouring works well, as it serves to de-emphasise the tress on the left.

Very nice!

Excellent, Marc! I thought this was yours (from the gallery thumbprint).

cool city shot, I like the de-sat feel.

It has 11 there because thats where 11 lives.

Powerful image with great atmosphere.

The clock looks like the official Swiss railway clocks. I only thought I'd mention it as I recently read an article on them being included in the Design Museum. They don't have an '11' on though so the mystery continues!

This has a great surreal quality to it which is enhanced by the strange No.11.
A splendid picture.

I guess the true question would be why not the 11? Nice picture though. Very eye catching.

awesome. wonderful frames within frames ie; the clock is framed; the central building is framed, then the whole image.

Very clever and well composed. The fog lends superbly overall...

You shouldn't do this you know. I've been trying to tell the Frogs for years that London's fog is an urban legend, and that we have more fog over in Lorraine than I ever saw in the UK !
That said, it is truly a beautiful picture Smile

Wonderful shot; the warm colour of the clock emphasises the cold grey mist. Great angle too.
The clock is there to tell people when to have their elevenses Wink
