The Bridge to London Big Ben

London is one of those cities where one could spend a week (or ten) taking photos and still have work to do.

The second day I was in London I went out to shoot some HDRs and of course Big Ben had to be in the picture. I wanted something different than the usual since this photo has been “shot to death” as Scott Kelby wrote. I took it with the Bridge to try and give it more of an eye trail.

I liked the sunset (I had been waiting for it for quite a while) and the lights are nice on the Bridge.

This is based on three photos, which I processed with Photomatix, Lightroom and then adjusted with Topaz.

I hope you like it.

(But I liked my prior “homepage” photo a lot – so was sad to see it scoot over to the back you can see it here:

  5. Hope you don’t mind a little spot of Londoner pedantry.

    Big Ben isn’t in your picture. Very few people get to take a picture of Big Ben. Big Ben is the bell, not the clock (or the clock tower).

    Great photo though.

    • Hi Dave, that’s funny – I didn’t know that at all. Well thanks for the information. And thank you all for your great comments, it’s very encouraging. Keep posting them.

  6. very nice! I’ve got a couple of shots of the same view on my blog, wouldnt mind a critique if you find the time. Yet to catch the view on a nice evening like this one!

  7. Gorgeous!

    I’m practising HDR so bad! ^_^
