Good shots with some interesting angles and framing. I especially like the St Pancras (I think it is) tower, in between the modern buildings. All shots capture London's 'feel'very well.

Thanks very much. The riverfront along the Thames seems to look good at any time of the year.

Thank you! There are beauties amongst the hideous in London. Cardinal Place as pictured in the last few pictures is a testament to modern architecture.

Thank you. As cardiff has pointed out, that's the tower of Westminster Cathedral (not to be confused with Westminster Abbey). It's of a similar architectural style and same colour though.
