The Two Towers

Little late here but an additional shot of Tower Bridge and a few of the Tower of London. Sadly, in the years since I was there as a kid, the surrounding area has not only been redeveloped but has rapidly encroached on the site itself, most of the office buildings around it towering it and obscuring any kind of reasonable distance view of it, least for me and my 50mm lens right now. I shall have to return at a future point with the 20mm I have on my shopping list.

Dark Skies Over The Bank & The Bridge

Experiments continue both in camera and post processing with software. Used an old favourite for these two, Photomatix Pro rather than Aurora HDR as the latter really can’t handle highlight information as well as the former, to the point where the brightest images from a bracketed set have to be omitted from the batch you import if you’re to make a workable image at all (something that really needs improving imo). Photomatix simply handles this much better and has the ability to inherently create that “look” I love HDR for so much, which is texture which can add so much additional depth to what is already a 2D medium.

These were taken while out and about sight seeing with Flitz. We travelled to Bank station and then walked through to get to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.
