London at Night
I just returned from a 5-day trip to London; it’s one of my favorite cities (except for the exchange rate). Network connectivity was poor so I didn’t have a chance to post from the hotel. The weather was OK by English standards but not optimal for photography (generally overcast and gray). So I decided to try some night shots with my Mark III given its low noise at higher ISO values. I started shooting as the sun began to set. The above image of Big Ben and Parliament was handheld at ISO 1600, f2.8 at 1/40th sec. The only retouching on this photo was a simple white balance.
