Behind The Lens

Location
London at the London Eye on the South Bank near Westminster bridge.
Time
This image is taking in the late afternoon sun & is way off to the left over my shoulder. The almost last warmth of the sunlight has lit up the old town hall and still bathes the top of the London eye.
Lighting
For me the natural late sunlight adds a warmth to the sandstone buildings which I have enhanced a little to really bring home the warmth of the sunlight.
Equipment
This was shot on my Canon 7d which wasn't ideal as it has a cropped sensor so not really appropriate for close up landscapes of buildings but the best camera is the one you have with you but I did use the Heliopan polariser to help with the reflection which was a huge bounus for this image! As I wanted to capture the hurly burly of the people around me I went for a 1.6 second exposure this also helped with the dying light camera was on a manfrotto tripod.
Inspiration
There were two things that drew me to this image firstly it was the huge puddle from the days rain that when at the right level reflected the London Eye in it secondly the light on the old Town Hall was very appealing to me, it was mainly the puddle & reflection the light as we all know is a bonus "if" we are lucky.
Editing
Yes, the cropping & straightening due to the cropped sensor was positioned in a way that had something in each corner leading into the image making it more dynamic visually. Shadows were lifted & the image warmed up to emphasise the late afternoon sun.
In my camera bag
Back then it was the canon 7d & a 5d mki a sigma 10-22 wide angle lens & a 24-105 Now it is a Canon 5d mkiii 16-35 f2.8 sigma 105 f2.8 Sony A7iii Tamron 28-75 f2.8 sony 70-200 f2.8 Lee filters numerous a Heliopan polariser a must for this shot.
Feedback
The first thing is to NOT keep looking at life from your walking height! This shot would have been missed if I wasn't aware of what was there to be shot once I had a look at about waist height I was happy I could get what I wanted, it had to be seen from the low perspective so awareness of what "might be possible" is an absolute must for an aspiring photographer, good luck to you all, Steve.
