BT Tower (Post Office Tower) - London Skyline

One of my favourite photos to date. This sums up my love of 'light and dark', composition and perspective. The tower is certainly impressive, suprisingly hard to find the base but when you do wow it doesn't start on the ground. I was also practicing with Exposure Compensation as part of a course.

I was standing in near complete dark shade surrounded by the buildings, I wanted to keep the extreme contrast between the light sky and dark shade so had to boost the EV but wanted to keep a high f-stop to try keeping a sharp image.

This was hand-held.
