Big Ben, London, 2011.

Haven't had much time during the last weeks because I've had a lot of stuff to do in university and in my real life. But here is a new photo I've taken during my last trip to London in March 2011.
It's the Big Ben mirrored in a puddle.

A lot of people already asked me if I did any post processing in this photo. The answer is no. Again and again it's all about the angle :)

Seeing as I, just recently, spent a year in England, I find this a very appropriate piece to critique. When I first saw this piece I was, literally, amazed. You have applied the greyscaling of this photo brilliantly, seeing as many black and white are often in either contrast or in adequate lighting, so you have definitely pulled of this photo brilliantly. The composition of this piece could be called risky, straying far from the traditional and trying out something brand new. But this, for me, is one of the best aspects of this photo! The reflection is eye-catching and the main view is inspiring, putting a brand new light on the Palace of Westminster and it's iconic clock tower. Overall, the technique of this piece is stunning, sharp but without much noise, the composition is spot-on, contrast and brightness just about perfect but the I have the smallest nit to pick, which is the reflection of the lamp-post and the building on the right-hand side, but it is one of those in-avoidable aspects of photography and it barely dampens the impact of this photo. So I congratulate you on taking such an amazing piece and I can't wait to see more beauties in you gallery.

I hope you find this critique fair and I hope you go on to take more amazing photos. :)

Stunning reflection :D and the lights on that car, in this photo are just amazing :D they add to the whole idea of a grey day, what with the puddle and the flags distressed by the wind :D
wonderful :heart:
