Another brush with the London Metropolitan Police in order to get this shot. They don't like big lenses and anyone who stands in front of the police with such a blatantly big lens must therefore be a terrorist. Hel-llooooooo McFly.

This is a marmite photo I reckon - love it or hate it. Probably a bit too close cropped but I had to move on or be arrested before I could get it right. Any further out and there's too much loss of detail..and this thing already got mauled in the reduction. Lovely late afternoon light though :)

PP: convert from raw, crop, rotate, levels, nn, sharpen edges, sharpen, resize, usm, sharpen edges, save for web.

Nice picture1 Contrasting yellow and blue always looks good and the fact you didnt show the horizon line really adds to you phto making it look more authentic.

I like the background of the clouds instead of seeing like a bunch of buildings.

Personally I find the tilt of the photograph a little off putting rather than enhancing it, sorry. Maybe if the photo had been taken at the bottom looking up would have made it more interesting?
