Is there a need to say something?

Your pics make me out of words.

Glad you like them Porto, I think the last set were some of my best photos ever taken. I might print a few of them on A2 paper.

Never have I came across a photographer who has done so such much justice for London, it is photos like these that confirms why the British capital is amongst the most beautiful cities on the Earth.

Sharpoor

your shots are just a,azing

I have a request..would you take pictures of normal London houses...middle class areas...i have a thing about those Detached houses, I mean the way the doors frames and window borders are...they give life to a house

I think with your camera you will so much justice...its well and good to see St Pauls and Canary Wharfs but i think you could do more with normal London objects such as hosing styles and so on

Otherwise congrats and keep it up!

Thanks mwinyi.

I'll try to visit places like Camden and Kilburn for those shots. I can't go much far these days because of Jubilee line being closed at weekends.

I think it's the People that make London one of the greatest cities in the world. Could you take some pictures of Londoners from time to time?

Anyway, your pictures are amazing. Great work! *standing ovation*

great thread. great progression too!

do you use any tone mapping software?

i ask this because from page 5 on i noticed a difference in quality, particularly how the pavement had more definition. so i was wondering if this might be due to just better skill or maybe some added gear. or maybe more usage of hdr.

one more question. i really like the photos with cars streaking past. any tips on how to get the good streaks without losing focus quality on the rest of the photo?

Thanks.

I use Sigma Photo Pro to process RAW files.

Some tips for light streaks:
- Capture roads with good traffic
- Don't point out your camera to headlights, the strong light will ruin your shot
- Try longer exposures for slow cars

I'm not sure what you mean about the focus, I usually set mine to infinity and have no problems.

@pixel2008: I can't do that with my Sigma camera but I'll capture some people with my film camera, it's got a telephoto lens.
