westminster bridge by toko westminster bridge by toko
Westminster Bridge, London, 2011.

One of the very, very few shots I took with a tripod. But the outcoming was worth it carrying it all over London, wasn't it?

Full view looks much better!

Just a warning: I am no professional photographer. I do, however, think I know what looks good, and I love this.

The trailing lights are a telltale sign of a long exposure, and the direction of the lights kind of draws your eyes naturally, which is lovely. I also like the shadows; they are long and mysterious. I think the composition is great- I find that the hardest thing about photography, but you nailed it.

I think this is quite original. I've seen bucketloads of pictures of iconic landmarks and this one stands out by putting them in the background. It is only after you've looked at the bus(I think it's a bus) that you notice them. It gives them a sense of royalty and class, while everything else is moving. The fact that the light trails are translucent allow them to be seen. Even the odd blotches of light here and there really add a 'dirty' feel- not too clean cut.

The clouds in the corner are great; I think without them the sky would have been too bare compared to everthing else. then you would have had to crop and then the composition would've been a tad off. Also the colour of the sky and the colours of the bus (I'm sure it's a bus) really go well with each other. You really chose the right time of day(long shadows are gorgeous and add to the whole mood)

One thing, though: Show us the EXIF! :)

VRRROOOOOOOOOOOMMM!!!!!!!! 8D I can't tell you how many I've seen these photos. I love how these make it look like the vehicles are going at light speed! Although it has been done many times I remain a fan. the Vision, Originality, and Technique all are the same I guess but I still love the impact it leaves. VROOM! lol I love saying that xD. anyways nothing more to say except try your best to catch more of these kind of scenes. Don't forget though. If it's you who took it then it's already original. Hope to see more of yours in DD.

Ahh, sometimes you just have to use a tripod. It sucks but yes it's worth it :)

I love the lighting and the city in the background.
