    Following on from my thread of London street shots, we did a bit of cityscape/architectural photography too. We left the Embankment as dusk began to fall and made our way to Cheapside, where the One New Change building has a roof terrace with wonderful views over the city.

    John,

    Cracking set of images! I was in London just before Christmas and it makes me want to go back!

    Thanks Chris, I was really lucky with the weather and the marvellous evening light - considering what it's been like just lately!

    All pics taken with your old E-M5, I'm getting on really well with it! :smile:

    I never even realised it was you that I sold it too!
    Ironically enough I think I'm very close to buying another one... especially with the upcoming free grip + battery or 45mm offer coming!

    Ah, you would know me as "Zuiko" on the Olympus E-System User Group! :biggrin:

    It's certainly a good deal they're doing on the E-M5 at the moment.

    I love the light in these, particularly the transition from twilight go full dark. Great set! :cool:

    Great photos. I particularly like the first photo of St. Paul's, followed by the next two. What is the name of the new building in the photo entitled "Shard of Glass"? We lived just outside London from 2004 to 2007, and at that time, the Gherkin was the most prominent building in the skyline.

    Love that last shot, John. As we've not long been off steam your trains make ours look like antiques! :biggrin:
