The Scoop and some more *scoops* / London

Newer Older

Check it out on black or at 1280 x 850 pixel if you like architecture, lots of glass, concrete and artificial light. :)

About this shot
Scoop nr 1 This is 'The Scoop' next to the modern London City Hall, a great place for photography - If they would let ya. I can't complain though.

Scoop nr 2 Always keep an eye on your shadow when you're out and about, or else you might be ruining your own shots. *cough* Yep! :-)

Scoop nr 3 Don't be afraid to go out on a walk with another photographer thinking "you might end up getting the same shots!" This is not a problem at all. Evidence: This is Scott's shot of me taking the shot above. And this one. Y'see? It's another world, so no problem at all, unless you keep shooting over each others shoulders all the time of course. But then, there's always post-processing. ;-)

Have a nice day!

    Een fraaie foto van stadslandschap! Weer tot in de puntjes verzorgd. Het lijkt wel of je London kent als Rotterdam! Zit je dat thuis uit te puzzelen of doe je dat terplekke? Ja,..een foto is niet alleen maar een plaatje, zo wordt het een projekt op zich! Met goeie raadgevingen want je staat al gauw in je eigen foto met een UWA. En dan zie s'avonds met al dat direkte kunstlicht en schaduwen natuurlijk veel minder gauw! Veel om te zien met een goeie tekst en dat stukje specifieke humor! Goed gedaan Rob!!

    Thx people, thx a lot for your time, kind comments and faves. I love London and it's *really* worth a visit - I wouldn't go this summer though, hehe. But if you go, prepare yourself really well. It will be the key to your photographic succes there, like it was for me. Ciao!

    Wat een compositie, wat een texturen en wat een geweldige bewerking! Echt heel erg sterk Rob! De hele serie overigens! De Tower Bridge (in de andere foto's) maakt het echt helemaal af. Heeel erg gaaf!
