Embankment, London, a night time view

A couple of nights ago I was out in London at an event organised by credit scoring company Experian. I took a slight detour on the way home so that I could go up onto Hungerford Bridge and take some images of Embankment.

I like this picture because of the colour of the London Eye and the fact Big Ben is in the background. I’m a bit annoyed the boat in the centre is quite so prominent, although I guess there’s an argument it adds to the picture.

I haven’t added technical details to my photos for a few weeks, so allow me to break this trend. The shutter speed was 1/8, aperture was set at f3.5 and ISO 1600. I didn’t use any filters and editing was minimal.

You can expect a write up of the Experian event on the blog in the next few days. It was a small gathering designed to shine a light on how credit scoring works and I was delighted to meet Jaime from The Oliver’s Madhouse blog and Sally of Who’s the mummy and Tots 100.

As per usual, I’ve linked this up to the #MySundayPhoto linky. Click on the badge below to explore the linky yourself.

  1. Fantastic shot, John, particularly of the Eye all lit up. I know what you mean about the boat, but I think it does help lead the eye into the shot so I think it works quite well in the end. London at night is such a beautiful city.

  2. One of my favourite view points in London. I love this photo because of the colours; the contrast between the bright, neon red and the mottled cloudy sky and the street lamp colours lighting up the embankment. Fabulous shot, makes me pine for the City!x

  3. Its a brilliant pic and I scrolled back up to look at the boat. I think it does add to the picture. Although I guess you could photoshop it out if it really annoys you 🙂
