An upstream River Thames view from Limehouse at The Shard the tallest building to grace the City Of London skyline, standing at 1,016 feet (309.6 meters). You can also see the top of Tower Bridge and the London Eye in this cloudy view up the Thames. The little white building on the far riverbank is the famous pub "The Prospect of Whitby"

It always amazes me how you manage to get this wonderful lighting into your shots. Another splendid capture from the City with The Shard making a spectacular and unmistakeable focal point. Superb colours and reflections.

whilst the soaring Shard dominates the scene it`s definitely the patterns and texture of those clouds that I enjoy most in this imaginative shot.
A most pleasing effect.
Have a good day Les.

le architetture attirano immediatamente l'attenzione, ma la luce è il vero punto di forza di questa composizione.
Molto bella sia sulle nuvole, sia sull'acqua, il paesaggio è avvolto da questa luce calda e questo mi piace molto.

The vertical format was well chosen here emphasizing the height of the tower. The photo has many nice points of interest throughout. The lighting and colors are fine as is the photo's sharpness and DOF.

there surely are some pretty amazing pieces of architecture in London now aren't there!
Modern pieces that is.
looks like something from a Star Trek movie, its pretty damn cool indeed.
it dwarfs everything around it, especially the London Eye. awesome.

This is an excellent view of this icon, one that is new to me and actually gives me a new appreciation for its design (I don't know if I like this building or not) the design is so futuristic, it's like something from a sci fi movie. OECD again the light in your capture is really beautiful.

Your post processing excellent. I like this picture which is having a different view. Colours are nice and different. The water colour is strange.

Spectacular building rising between other smaller ones. Good idea for warming the image. Well taken scene.

Love this elegant presentation due to the special warm tonality you was able to perfectly manage here. The visual effect is really eye catching and attractive. Well done!
Have a nice weekend!

Excellent photo of the latest addition to London's skyline. The sharpness is excellent and the clouds are a perfect background. It's nice to see some parts of other London landmarks as well.

Gidday dear Brian
Is this the building that sets things on fire? I'm sure I've asked you before, so sorry for being forgetful. A fantastic long-range, wide-angle shot of this intriguing building and very interesting part of the city. I like the warm colours and the strong contrast, aswell as the vertical frame. It looks great and is very eye-catching, even in miniature.
Thanks for sharing, have a great week

Great picture of this new highest viewpoint of London. Great sharp picture with a beautiful warm light.
I wondered how it should be from above with these weather conditions.

A very attractive picture here too!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
