Pure WheelPure WheelThere something about a white sky that I like about photos. Perhaps is the way I was taught how to use negative space in architecture to affect moods. That puts in in good stead to start applying it in photography. It is always in the back of a photographers mind when they are composing. The more you do it the less you have to think about what you are doing. It just sort of becomes natural to you. I am not sure where I am on that scale but I like to think that it is nearly natural. But if you stop thinking about composition, then what will happen?

Sunset over South Tower

May 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Two photos for the price of one on this great Tuesday morning.

Peeking out over a balcony over London always takes your breath away. Even more so when you are up in the highest part of Tower bridge where tourists do not get to wander. I was luckily enough to be put in this scenario a few weeks ago. I only had a very short hour to fill my boots and snap away in the walkways of both the North and South Tower of Tower Bridge. 

It was golden hour and the sun was setting fast due to the time of year. It wasn’t the best sunset in the world but it didn’t have to be to make this unusual view work. There is just enough of the golden glow of the sun bouncing down to the houses below to set the mood.

I want to go back there now I know what it’s like. In this case I don’t there you can have too much of a good thing.

I wasn’t sure how to edit this image. I wanted to play around with it a little. For such an unusual photo, I wanted to create an unusual look. Instead of my normal “HDR” look I decided upon a high contrast, moody scene to show off the architecture of this magnificent place.

I’m still not sure which one I prefer.
