The Shard launches (View from St Paul's Cathedral London)

The opening of the Shard the tallest building in Europe. Taken with the Latest Nikon D3200 and Nikon 18-300mm. You are able to zoom in on detail in the HiRes version because of the 24mp sensor. Of course to get a image so sharp and detailed and noise free you have to shoot at the lowest ISO, Aperture mode at f6.3 -1ev, 18mm and a really heavy tripod.
