Another shot of the Tower Bridge in London which concluded my photoshoot around this wonderful city. Taken from London Bridge with the fence used as an impromptu tripod. Had to make a hasty pack up and go when a street sweeper machine came trundling by!

Good angle of view here straight on to the bridge with the ship on the right guiding the viewer into the scene. Well exposed with good sharpness.

Tower Bridge is such an iconic symbol of London and though I have photographed it from much closer, I have never considered capturing it from another bridge. Nikon's high ISO does seem to work remarkably well in low light; the bridge is beautifully sharp with the blue lights giving quite a ghostly effect.
Is that HMS Belfast creating good f/g interest and acting as an effective lead?
My warm regards,

Ahh what a beautiful nocturnal shot. You did really well exposing for the uneven light and the lack of noise in the dark areas is impressive. The boat on the right adds to the composition, giving us a slightly different view of this famous bridge.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely evening
PS: thanks for the book review :) I vaguely remember reading it at school too, I think it was by Rumer Godden? But you've peaked my curiosity and I think I'll re-read it. Thanks!

The distance between the ship and the bridge is giving depth to the composition, Using an ISO of 1600, a slow shutter speed and probably a support is showing the details and colors of the Tower Bridge. It is also making the colors to stand out. Have a nice dya.

Très bonne photo nocturne de Tower Bridge avec une parfaite maîtrise de l'exposition.
Il se passe des choses bizarres sur TE, c'est la deuxième fois que je réécris la critique sur ta photo!

A fabulous night scenery on one of London icons, Chris.
Stunning illuminations well collected, perfect camera set with exp. time.
Sharpness and the clear air at night contributed beautifully.

Quelle belle photo de nuit de ce superbe monument londonien illuminé de très belles couleurs aux teintes pastel. Le bateau à l'avant plan apporte de la profondeur à la composition.

i'll never get tired of this subject, the Tower Bridge is so photogenic.
I like the way it spreads out here in your photo, like an eagle spreading its wings.
the black areas are very dark, and the illumination is a sweet contrast. excellent detailing and sharpness too.
good use of the fence! haha

You got a very good shot with the dark sky. We can see the details very well and light and sharpness are very good also. If it was taken without tripod you got an excellent result! Very good composition!

An original way to capture the well known bridge from another one
Like the sparkling lights (different ones) captured with a good speed (low) as well as the museum ship on the left
Great technique, enjoy Sunday

I like very much the depth of your picture and how the large boat breaks the symmetry. You've captured abundant details which the artificial lighting renders alluring. The night colours and atmosphere are wonderful. The excellent definition of the scenery and its details, the texture of the water and the lights beyond the bridge, make this night view rich, comprehensible and delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,
