Please view large on black, it makes a big difference!
It's been a while since I've posted a London cityscape at night and, as that has been regarded as my speciality by some of you, here you go! This was a fantastic evening's shooting, one of the best I've had in a long time. The sunset and light that night was unbelievable.
I not only loved the sky here, both clouds and colour, but also the juxtaposition of the new and old. The central focus is on the City of London, with The Gherkin, Tower 42 and Heron Tower, but creeping in at the side is the Tower of London. A lot of towers in one photograph I guess. In the coming weeks I'll show you some more shots from this session and I'm really happy with them.
This shot was part of an HDR workshop that I ran for my friend Geoff. I used it as an example of settings and workflow and ended up really liking the result.
This looks pretty special when viewed in the lightbox, as it's a night scene and has loads of detail.
