This is my experiment with fake miniatures. The focus is adjusted in photoshop to make it seem as if the actual photo is merely a model.
This is overlooking the Thames river, and Albert embankment (London - Westminster). This is South of the eye.
There may be some glare that is from the plexiglass enclosure of the London Eye. Unfortunately, the time of day was particularly bad for glare... sorry
The hotel I stayed at is in was the riverbank park plaza, which is in the foreground of this shot (I've noted in the photo).
