The light of the Wharf

This here is a shot that Elsie and Sinem, Suby's wife would like, I think. This is another archive shot I took of the new metropolitian part of London, an area called Canary Wharf, just like this one I took on a train journey into London.

I don't know if it's just me but to all the Canon EOS 5D users I seem to be taking better outdoor shots in heavy sunlight with my Canon EOS 10D than I do with my Canon EOS 5D. You might say it's the lens but I doubt it very much. The shots I get with the same lenses on my 10D are a lot better in my opinion than those with my 5D, in that I find them easy to work with. Maybe it's just a  personal perception of what I like and  the images from the 5D are more  like the real thing than they are from the 10D.

I think I'm going to keep shooting these landscapes with my 10D till I workout how to shoot them with my 5D.

Oh and this is really a shot in response to the heavy snow we experienced yesterday, I didn't go out to shoot, too busy.

Heck, London has changed since my last visit there about 15 years ago. They got palm trees now? Is this global warming? I'll join the various ladies in liking this shot.

I agree with Dammie on this... had it been I wasnt living in London, I'd probably have assumed this is somewhere in America. Dockland is the place to be, a thriving area at the moment

Youre right, love this shot. The blue sky and the lighting are beautiful. You should do more of these. Have a great weekend Mr.

Very sharp, and very light. Lovely.

London does seem to be taking on an international look though, no real individual identity any more. sad

Splendid. Could do with this as a portrait in my living room as to the regular manhattan frame. Jide, 2 days of snow and we havent gotten any white pictures? Sure u still got something coming soon, right?
Excellent detail. *Drools* at the camera upgrade smile
