    View on black please!

    One from my city photowalk with Adam Cohen and almost the same spot where I took my photo of The Gherkin. Again, like most of my City shots, this has the deep red sky that seems to cover the Bishopsgate area during the evening. Still not too sure why... At least it makes a change from the nice blue sky over other parts of London.

    Actually, I'd really like to know why the sky in this area is red. I'm assuming it's light pollution, but it doesn't seem to happen in other parts of London, or at least not to this extent. Is it to do with the large amount of skyscrapers in this area? The type of lights used? I've read that sodium lights can cause a different type of pollution. Let me know!

    Also, if you think you know why I chose this particular title, let me know in the comments. Remember, there are no wrong answers. Just incorrect ones.

    This photo really does come alive on black (press L), so please view it that way; it'll be a guaranteed fav if you do! (Wishful thinking).

    No group graphics or large images in comments please.

      Great shot - I find that if I set the white balance to tungsten the glowing sky goes a little more natural when shooting at night.

      Great tip, although I always shoot RAW and white balance doesn't affect that. I quite like the surreal look of the night-time London sky :)

      Red and blue - arteries and viens.
      Whe I see the pipes it also reminds me of my athlete son - they called him 'Pipes" referring to his clearly visible veins and arteries.
      Why does this photo say arteries and veins to you?
