Wow! This has come really good. I am yet to process the pics that I took in the GTG. Heavily snowed down under work ...

I really like the processing on this one, similar to sepia, but not quite.

I remember books by Arthur Mee from my childhood and good they were.

I like this a lot. Great editing, considering the constraints of basic editing.

Maybe I'm just being a silly American, but I wonder if something iconic like Big Ben would be a more recognizable subject as something from London. Still, I like the composition and the use of a mild sepia tone while keeping the color in the flag. It's a shame the wind wasn't expanding the flag a bit more. I'm curious why the cables seems so blurry when the glass pods are so in focus, and why there is nothing in the background, considering the sense of perspective I get from the building doesn't look like you are pointing into the sky.

Quite a technological marvel for 1937! :)
