Big Ben

Edit v2: Contrast boosted slightly

A shot from my visit to London. I would like to thank my friend Rameez for lending me his ND1000. The results are simply amazing and I will be investing in one straight away. The building in the distance in the middle is Big Ben if you didn't know allready. I really liked taking and processing this image and I think it works really well in black and white.

Suggester says; London, the wonderful capital, here in a great capture of motion. The rushing clouds and the black white version give it a special atmosphere! Big Ben by =james-dolan ( Suggested by Linkineos and Featured by ScENeYmE )

Big Ben, to Hetalia fans, a very dirty joke.

I always told myself if I was to visit London I would HAVE to stop and look at Big Ben. I'm shocked at how eerie it looks...

Thanks for the kind words & favorite. I think it is the way I took the picture, the long exposure doesn't give it too much justice :XD: My style I guess :)

I like how you made Big Ben the central focus with the clouds effect, since in most of the ones I've seen, it's sort of one side of the photo. There's a wonderful sense of motion here but somehow time also seems frozen too. Me likey :)
