    Great shots [​IMG]
    During the meet is was interesting to see the different angles and subjects being captured.

    A couple of shots from me

    Some nice pictures there :) The second one looks almost as if the guy was edited in afterwards, I like the third one mostly though :)

    Nice one sdk aswell, although i think the second one would look better with the airplane trail cloned out, as i found it distracing.

    Great shots though :)

    The first ones good, I've seen photos of the reflection of Tower 42 done like that before, but it's a good photo nonetheless. The Lloyds one is interesing, but you can get better shots of the building, especially at night.

    Yeah I was going to but I left it in. It can be removed easily enough :)

    I processed the images on my laptop and looking at them now on my Desktop machine they do look quite a bit darker, especially the lower part of the first image.

    Nice work guys - it's really good seeing your view on the day, some angles I never even thought about and some stuff I just blatantly missed :D

    Some excellent pics guys. Love the way the sun is reflecting off the water directly underneath big ben :)

    This landing looks like it could be painful.
    It looks like I captured this at the same time as the photo above from ranarama.

    Thanks for the comments guys. SDK, I really like those two you put up. The second one is great but I didn't even want to attempt that shot with the amount of flare I get with my lens. Bit disappointed I can't see the crane though ;) .

    I did have to mess about with that one and cloned out two people just behind the skate boarder as they were really distracting. You can see where they were as the window by the skater's right foot is quite messy. Should have spent longer on it really but think I mostly got away with it.

    At least SDK's is a different perspective from ranamara's. Look at SDK's, then mine:

    :p :o Notice how even the shadow on his face line up exactly the same, not to mention the position of the skateboard and how his feet are aligned. Spooky, eh?

    (I'll post my set later on, after I've had a chance to work over them :) )

    Must have been a different time as the sun wasn't out when I took mine.

    They weren't actually very good but I suppose everyone has to start somewhere. I didn't see one of them land properly (like I could do it :o ). The ones down on the South Bank were good though.

    Great pics guys. Looking through some of those makes me kick myself for missing the shots even though we were all probably standing in the same areas! I have only processed 5 or 6 as I am absolutely wasted (our daughter kept us up half the night and hasn't really settled till this evening - you don't want to know why! ;) )

    SDK, your big ben picture made me wince when I saw mine in comparison! :)

    Ranarama - that picture of the guy with the hair. I was looking to take that but I had my kit lens on and didn't have the reach. My pictures will follow:

    All very blue - kinda why I like this one

    I just loved the colours in this window sticker - think it was a mobile phone shop

    Went for the arty strange angle on this - (please ignore the slightly dodgy cloning top right and left - my lens hood had shown on the photo at the top!)

    **EDIT - Are these images too large?**
