Leaden skies over the Royal Victoria Dock in Silvertown, London, England. Sun's rays piercing the clouds with the old dockside cranes now the only evidence of the fact that this was once a thriving port. In this shot you can see the new bridge in the foreground with the O2 Dome, the Emirates Skyway Cable Car and the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf visible in the distance.

The colour in the sky is beautiful which makes this picture pleasant. We see quite a few ropeway cars (gondolas) in silhouette...what arre they for?
The reflection of the sky in the rippled waters looks good as well.

Cranes and bridge add a great touch of graphism contributing much to the overall success of the composition. The backlit sky is superbly rendered and is nicely complemented by the reflections in the silver grey waters of the dock.

Hello Brian,all the lines and angles, and with a fairly limited palette of colours make for a captivating scene in my opinion.The river with the ruffled reflections complements the business of the top part of the picture.

Spectacular image along the docks. Everything looks quiet and well arranged. I like those old cranes.
Well taken scene.

I like the contract between the neat line of old warehouses and cranes on the left and the tall modern buildings on the right, held together by the line of the bridge.
Your mention and inclusion of the Emirates Skyway Cable Car reminds me I should go there and have a look at it. I haven't been in that area for ages.

This light is magical and turns this from an urban industry scene into something straight from a big bucks movie. The soft light and soft colors really do well to humanise this scene which could easily be an overbearing image of urban life. Very nicely combo to have the city on far right like this,showing the various faces of the city. A combination of light and scene that I have nev seen before, nicely done.

the outlined cranes and supporting structure of the bridge add so much to this well handled composition.
The sun`s rays are a really nice bonus.
