Good composition and interesting idea. I have seen lots of views of Big Ben but this one is completely different.

Hi Robert, almost a sense of "times past". A very evocative photograph. Nicely balanced exposure too, with just enough light to cut through the sombre mood of the sitting room. Was it taken from the old GLC building which I believe is now a Marriott hotel? Stephen

Excellent one, Robert!
I had a look at a few of your latest photos and have to admit you've got style - and I like it!
Keep up with it and see ya later,

Everyone saw pictures of Big Ben thousand of thimes. That's why when I find an unusual view of such a famous place I apreciate it very much.
Well shown from a dark room (a museum?). The room could be brighter though - it would be good to see some details.

Good day to you Robert.
Again, trying to get my eyes around your great photos.
I'm very much a fan of framed shots like this one here. The composition is really great. You've allowed enough light to capture some detail inside the window, yet didn't totally overexpose the outside. Very well done. The inclusion of Big Ben is wonderful, how many apartments have this view?...one, maybe! Great. Also the point of Big Ben matching the upswing in the drapery...a small detail, but important. Great friend.

Robert, this is stunning. Taking photography from a darker place into a sunshine struck scene is difficult and challenging. You mastered it! The Big Ben seems to be in the middle of this dark room and still completely lit in light.
Best Regards, Peter

Lovely pcture, superb in quality of light and sharpness. It does have a quiet, reflective atmosphere, thanks.

Always nice to see a well-known building but in another view and yours is original !
Seeing some of the detals in the foreground but still dark enough and that's very nice, good shot, I like the idea !

Tomada desde donde? Buena vista. Tienes bastante talento para tomar la foto precisa, la que no todos captan. Bien hecho. Felicitaciones.

Very clever POV to see the world famous icon from this dark room. I love the little bit of red leading outside to the very detailed Big Ben.
