Behind The Lens

I took this photo on my first trip to London
It was Summer and my wife and I were walking around London, enjoying the beautiful sights. It was a very warm evening and we were heading towards the train station to get back to our hotel. I took the photo around 8pm when the sun was still out but low on the horizon.
It was a beautiful evening in London. The sun was beginning to set, so the light wasn't harsh.
I took the photo with a Sony SLT A33 and the kit lens using the panoramic feature included in the camera. So, I held the camera in portrait orientation and pressed the shutter button panning along until the camera captured all the photos and stitched them together automatically.
I wanted to capture all of the beauty of the Houses of Parliament in a wide view. The building is so impressive and beautiful that I find it hard to look away.
I retouched the photo to make the sky more dramatic by recovering some of the highlights and increasing the overall clarity of the picture without overdoing it.
In my camera bag
I normally carry my camera with the kit lens and a 35mm or 60mm prime lens.
