New Curves Looking Back At Old
New Curves Looking Back At Old

Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Curves II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye
Location: South Bank, London
Date: Mar 30, 2008
Aperture: f11
ISO: 100
Shutter: various
Date Uploaded: Mar 30, 2008

Tower Bridge, circa 1884
London City Hall, circa 2002

Produced this to really enhance the modern new architecture against the old. Might be a little too strong, but we'll see how it goes down in voting. Didn't have long to get this one right because I had security hassles immediately after shooting this set.

PP: HDR from 3 exposures on AEB, selective exposure adjust of City Hall, adjusted temp down a bit to cool it down, burned in foreground, levels, border, nn, resize, usm, save for web.

Nice choice of angle Nick, and you never got arrested either, that's a good day out.

oohhh this is so nice. Editing is top notch. If i had a complaint, it would be only that I wish the cloud cover in the top left was a bit more compositionally effective, like if there was a big floating cloud there, that would perfectly balance the composition and framing. Still great as it is, and I know you can't affect the heavens, just sort of a 'wish'.

I could just scream when I see photos like this!!! (that's a good thing, in case you were wondering) I want to visit London so badly and will hopefully get there later this year. I just love this photo, the stunning architecture, the beautiful day, the contrast of old and new, how the gleaming rail just pulls me into the photo, perfect!!!
