Default City of London (B+W)

Taken from a rail bridge where I drive trains from.

Critique welcome (not forgetting the quality is vastly reduced to fit site criteria)

Nice panorama, the highlights seem a little bit blown though. What conversion technique did you use?

Printed, it must be really awesome.
The highlights are a bit blown but the scene is great!

not yet, I may upload to 'bucket or fotopix at some stage.
It's my first crack with my new Sigma 18-50 F2.8. Seems far sharper than the kit lens.
Nightshots IMO are so tricky to get right. Then of course there is the trying not to get mugged" aspect of it too

I drive trains from there, it's about the only point of interest other than Gatwick or Luton on the entire trip. Pretty dull job otherwise

Nice shot. I too like night shots but there is the safety concerns...I was ok down on the embankment but I did keep an eye out, A tripod can be a good weapon! )
