The O2 and the City
My usual sightings of the O2 and the financial heart of London are also from the air but quite a bit higher up - sat in an aircraft on its final approach to Heathrow. This was also taken from the air but at a much lower altitude - 290ft. This is shot through glass from the Emirates Air-line, the gondola crossing the Thames between the O2 on the south bank and the Excel Exhibition Centre on the north bank.

A cracking shot and conversion Alan. Pin sharp and the new size allows for extensive exploration of The O2 and The City.
Lovely tones and a awesome sky, excellent work Sir, luv it.

Very well done considering the difficult vantage point, you must have had nice clean windows as when I try this its usually fogged due to the dirty window but I travel cattle class
Well executed and edited

A fabulous capture Alan! Getting the shot spot-on for a symmetrical view was no mean feat but you nailed it! The editing is also superb with a lovely range of tones and detail all topped with a stunning sky. A shot to be proud of, very well done indeed!

Cracking picture with great POV, and through glass too, very well done. Great clarity and good tones throughout, but I would love to see a colour version, please ????

Thanks, guys; much appreciated as always. I'll post a colour version for you, Jeffrey.

another excellent mono image with lots of good interest and detail. The sky is very dramatic in mono and tops the image off very nicely. Very well taken and edited Alan.
