i love the sky was moving very fast, i was just on time to capture the motion of the clouds as there was no much more clouds coming i had to rush... i used a long explosure to get the blured sky and a 0.75 ND filter to keep sky details.

About the place:
Crystal palace used to be a massive brick and iron building built in 1851.
In 1936, most of the Crystal Palace was destroyed in the country's biggest peacetime fire of the 20th century. During World War II, the 20-acre hilltop site was used as a dump for bombsite rubble. Historically, the park has been used for a range of social events, leisure pursuits and sports, including balloon launches, cricket, cycling, football, speedway, motor racing, concerts and athletics. This continued with the building of the National Sports Centre in the 1960s.

The sky really makes this shot stand out! The tower – and even the pole in the foreground definitely work for the “urban” part of the challenge. Believe your entry will do great at roll-over!
