Not a great shot, but I love the buildings in Piccadilly Circus in london.

This is Covent Gardens in London. It is a covered shopping Center with street performers for entertainment.

This is the English countryside this time of year. I liked the different lines in this photo.

Hey rogers,

Nice pics you got there. They are nice composition-wise, but methinks #1 could have been spot-metered on the building. I like the lines in #2.

Looking forward to more pics from you. :)

I hope you dont mind but i made a few minor tweaks to image, becuae i thought it could use a crop and a few other adjustments.

Hi dryan2,

Sorry, but I really don't like what you've done to the image. :? Could you share what post-processing you did?

Thanks

Mark

I have to agree the first image is much better then the "updated" version that you tried to give a go at, the colors are more vibrant in the 1st image...

The crop seems right, as the banister in the lower portion of the frame looks like a mistake. If the whole rail/banister was included, or perhaps the shot was taken from the middle of the rail, cutting it just below the sign, then maybe i'd think otherwise. The colours are a bit off in the edited version as mentioned by others.

that and there's lens flare in the shot. Perhaps using a lens hood might have helped.

In picture number one, I would have liked to have captured the entire subway entrance, but that would also have captured all the people. I didn't think that would have produced the shot I wanted. The worst problem with taking photos in London is the crowd.

The crowd isn't an issue once you've realised that they can add a whole new dimension to images. I've posted one of my photos of Covent Garden on this thread.
