The Paddington Station has a inspiring architecture, and I just had to make a “old style” shot out of this. Ok, there are modern trains and stuff here… but… Suddenly I can imagine how it would have been in the “old times” :-)… do you see the old trains, and the coal and the steam…?
5D, Sigma 24-70 at f2,8, ISO 1600
What’s your call?
This is taken from a couple of phone boots at Leicester Square in London. I like how they’ve managed to keep their typical red phone boots all over the city. It has some kind of historic touch with it…
And I like the crisp red colour.
5D, sigma 24-70 2.8. I have found the Sigma lens to be a really great walkaround lens with the full frame format camera
Took this shot just before entering the Heathrow Express Train to the airport for travelling back home to Norway. I have always wanted to take a “busy life at the train-station” kind of picture, and since Paddington is a cool train station, I am happy I did it here.:-)
5D, Sigma 24-70mm 2.8.
Ok… this is probably a strange one But I always check out if this kind of “out-of-focus” shot works… and this one of the London Eye does, I think I also like the clear/crisp colours.
It is taken with my 5D and Sigma 24-70, which have lovely bokeh/out-of focus effect due to the way the blades in the shutter is created
There are many great views along the Thames in London. This shot is of the Hungerford Bridge crossing the Thames. A couple of beautifully lit boats in the foreground. And I love the “star” light on the back of the boat to the right in the picture:-)
Taken with Canon 5D, sigma 24-70 and high ISO (1600).
