Following from my previous thread, a couple of days later I was with adam* again and made our way to Golden Jubilee Bridges (which is an addition to the Hungerford Bridge rail bridge). An amazing view for photographs, in the right given light.

Peoples flashes from within the capsules on London Eye can be seen during the long exposure (about 1min)

Number 3 for me. Has a more calming and gentle feel to it, gives the London Eye just the right amount of motion without it looking like a bicycle wheel. Well done wazza.

The last two work best for me, I can't decide between them though. I know you don't like cropping, but I would have gone for a crop in between. There's a bit too much empty space at the top of #3, and the contrail and moon distract in my opinion (though I presume you zoomed out in this one to capture the moon).

very cool - are you sure you're not cloning in the skies from Piha? :-)
Don't think I've ever seen that area cloudless...

Hi Warren

Another nice set.I think I prefer the last one and that's probably because the frame is filled a bit more than on the others.Did you by any chance take a picture of the wheel from that location in portrait format.Just holding a piece of paper as a mask in front of the screen shows that it would be a cracking shot.

Cheers
Gary

Great shots.

Last one's my pick of the bunch.

Thanks Bryan for your nice words

Thanks I do like 4 myself, however looking at 3, with the page partially scrolled up, looks much better with the top 20% cropped off :) - And yeah, was only shot that wide to get in the moon

Cheers Duncan, yeah unlike Piha where the skies look like that everyday, this was a rare ocurrence. But to be honest, not that stunning, very dull sky. Only the 1D and filters managed to make it look not so bad.

Unfortunately I didn't and my tripod mount is broken.. Can only support camera landscape mode. I did do a crop version of the last two pics, and agree they look good :)

#2 gets my vote, it has the best composition and gives a good feel of the better perspective.

#3 is my favorite. The ferris wheel makes me a little dizzy since it looks like it's going really fast. The only thing I don't like about it though is the movement under the bridge because it seems out of place.But you had no control over that so. Great Shot.

Thanks Tracey, don't get too sick ;)
With that 3rd one, I really can't figure out why the dark capsules are showing clearly in the photo. It's a 66 second shutter speed, and really I would have expected to be a fainter blur evenly all around.. UNLESS they stopped the wheel for about 30 seconds, and then resumed it.

Great pictures you have made London look soft and gentle. They all look so placid.
Enjoy your holiday and have a "Great Christmas"
