Canary Wharf

By camera phone - Part XV

This shot of Canary Wharf was taken using my K800i while transiting at Westferry station on the way home from Moorgate. The sky was rather forebroding, so I thought it would make for a rather dramatic scene. At night this route is quite a scenic ride on the DLR (Docklands Light Rail), especially with all the lights coming from people buring the midnight oil in the skyscrapers. Unfortunately, the view from the stations aren't too good. You really have to be on the train to experience it properly.

I'll be out of the country to attend a friend's wedding over the weekend. So do bear with me if you've sent me emails. I'll only be able to answer them on Sunday evening or Monday.

This is a nice shot. I love the feel to it The B & W has a tone to it which I wish I could produce myself
The Maven: Cheers. smile The black and white effect was done by the camera. Though I did a bit of burning of the sky during post processing to make it more dramatic.

cool shot, where you actually on the train when you took this?
The Maven: Thanks for the comments. I was actually on the platform of Westferry station for this shot. If you're interested, the view is even better on the train between Westferry and Limehouse. But it's hard to get a good shot when the train is moving.
You post processed this shot.
