Golden View

Posted by
Ian Smith (London, United Kingdom) on 21 August 2014 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Possibly the most photographed vantage point in London...(except maybe a selfie in front of Big Ben) ...it's such a compelling view that even after all these years of crossing the Golden Jubilee Bridge (opened in 2002) I'm standing shoulder to shoulder with the tourists to capture it time and again.

SONY DSC-RX100 1/800 second F/5.6 ISO 125 28 mm (35mm equiv.)

It must be the most photographed point but your image with this panoramic view, the tonalities and the amazing composition is really an excellent image ! I love it. I've been lately in London and your image is really special to me.

it is quite breathtaking! the big wheel, the skyline leading up to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey - it is one of the classic views from all around the world! I have been only once to London and that was before my photography really caught on - i would love to visit again one day... love this panoramic capture - very well composed with great tones and detail!
