    Congratulations! Both captures are great, but I've really enjoyed the first one, I couldn't do anything but stare at it for a few minutes. Thanks for sharing your photos

    Both are really beautiful, but I tend to prefer the second. :cool:

    Nice Image man. I'd love to see a version of little ben that was a little less processed looking as well. Not that I don't like the way it's looking there too!

    I also can't decide if I want you to remove the plane from the photo. . . . I don't normally edit photos in that way, but in this case I am unsure. I don't like the idea of editing out part of the 'moment' especially a whole planes worth of people in a photo of a city (both defining imagery of man) . . . but . . . it just might look better without it?

    Excuse my ramblings. Nice shots!

    Hi, I was standing on Waterloo bridge road looking down over Belvedere Road.

    Thanks for your comments, I also thought about removing the plane but I just couldn't make my mind up as it does echo the cit landscape but at the same time slightly distracts your eye from the wheel and Big Ben. I think i will have to give it a go to satisfy curiosity.
