Photos

  • Bodiam Castle #4

    A long exposure shot of the castle creating the cloud movement. I used a 10 stop ND to get a 30 sec exposure.

  • Bodiam Castle #3

    Thought I would try an HDR Fisheye view of Bodiam Castle.

  • Diamonds Are Forever

    Under the Eiffel Tower. An amazing structure! This photo was taken on my Extreme Photowalking trip to Paris with Hannah Young.

  • Notre Dame Cathedral

    Another essential photo to take on a Paris photowalk. This is a 15 sec exposure to get the cloud sweep. This photo was taken on my Extreme Photowalking trip to Paris with Hannah Young.

  • Notre Dame Cathedral

    One of the essential Paris photos. Shot on our Extreme Photowalking trip to Paris. 33 miles of photowalking with full photo kit in two days!

  • The Dome of the Sacre Coeur

    The Sacre Coeur on Montmartre. Taken on our two day Extreme Photowalk in Paris. To say that it is crowded at the Sacre Coeur is a severe understatement. It was hard to move around, let alone take photographs. The only option is to look up, and fortunately the architecture is great to look up at. To anyone going there I would advise you to be very vigilant as there are plenty of scammers and pickpockets operating among the crowds.

  • More Lavender

    Mayfield Lavender Farm, South London, just after sunset.

  • Leadenhall Market

    One of the side passages of Leadenhall Market was the location for the scenes of Diagon Alley, and the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron in the Harry Potter films.Taken on the Flickr London Meetup All-night Photowalk on 21-Jun-2014.

  • Distant Horizon

    Sunday evening in the Surrey Hills. On the 10th of August you will hardly be able to move here for cycle fans, here to support their heroes as they cycle up the Zig Zag road on Box Hill for the London Surrey Classic. This was also part of the cycle route for the 2012 Olympic Road Race.

  • Definitely the Blue Hour

    This is London's Millennium Bridge and St Paul's Cathedral. The bridge is springy moves slightly when people walk on it, so a tripod doesn't always help. This was an ideal time to photograph it ... at 4am on a Sunday morning! Taken on the Flickr London Meetup All-night Photowalk on the 21-Jun-2014. Sony A6000.

  • The Old and the New

    The Shard Europe's tallest building can be seen against the night sky, behind the Tower of London, one of the city's oldest buildings.

  • Night comes to London

    Sunset over some of London's landmark buildings. Tower Bridge on the left with St Paul's Cathedral under the top span. The Walkie-Talkie building whose name is actually 20 Fenchurch Street is still under construction on the right.

  • Gherkin - 30 St Mary Axe

    Taken on the Flickr London Meetup All night photowalk on the 21-Jun-2014.

  • Millennium Bridge and St Paul's

    This is an example of a rescued photo. It is a 3 shot HDR, however sometimes on the Millennium Bridge there can be a little movement when people walk nearby. This affected the Ev 0 shot, and when merged in Photomatix the result was not as crisp as I would have liked. In order to rescue this I used a frequency separation technique. I loaded the Photomatix image and the Ev -2 image as layers in Photoshop and aligned then. I then duplicated the crisp Ev -2 image twice. On the first copy I applied a gaussian blur. On the second copy I used the apply image process from the edit menu and did a subtraction against the blurred copy. I changed the blend mode of this layer to linear light. The end result of this is that the tone information is on one layer and the texture/detail information is on another. I did the same with the sharp Ev -2 image. Finally I put the detail information layer from the crisp image over the tone information from the Photomatix layer, with the linear light blend and ... hey presto ... I have all the sharpness from the Ev -2 along with the tones from Photomatix. May seem like a long process but it is certainly easier than going back to re-photograph it at 4 am in the morning!

  • Leadenhall Market

    Taken on the Flickr London Meetup All night photowalk on the 21-Jun-2014.

  • Lloyds Building

    Sometimes known as the Inside Out Building since all the services are on the outside.

  • Warp factor 9 Mr Sulu

    Tower Bridge. Taken on the Flickr London Meetup All night photowalk on the 21-Jun-2014.

  • Duck with Attitude

    Taken on the Capital Ring Photowalk

  • Clean Wheel in NoHo

    I automatically put GPS tags on my images by loading a tracklog in Lightroom. Having the "Enable reverse geocoding" option set makes Lightroom put the address into metadata. Interestingly I learned that I took this image in NoHo. NoHo, for North of Houston Street (as contrasted with SoHo, South of Houston) is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Manhattan. You learn something every day.

  • Golden Sunrise

    Another enchanted golden sunrise in Bushy Park, Hampton Court, England. 3 Exposure HDR Processed in Photomatix and blended with original exposure in Photoshop. Finished in Lightroom. Sony NEX-7 41mm, 1/4000 sec at f5.6.

  • Golden Pond

    Beautiful sunrise this morning in Bushy Park, Hampton Court, England.

  • Manhattan Skyline

    Another photo from my 4-day photomarathon in New York. The effect is due to a long, 30 sec, exposure, and the resulting movement in the clouds. Taken from Brooklyn Bridge Park with a Sony A6000, 30 sec, at f22 using a 10 stop ND filter.

  • Winter Wonderland

    It's hard to beat the beauty of snow in Park City

  • Frosty Morning in Bushy Park 6a

  • Notre-Dame de Reims

    Notre-Dame de Reims (Our Lady of Rheims) is the Roman Catholic cathedral of Reims, where the kings of France were once crowned. It replaces an older church, destroyed by a fire in 1211, which was built on the site of the basilica where Clovigs was baptised by Saint Remi, bishop of Reims, in AD 496. That original structure had been erected on the site of the Roman baths. As the cathedral it remains the seat of the Archdiocese of Reims. Reims is a major site for tourism in the Champagne region.

    Grand Central Terminal in New York. What a grand entrance to the main concourse? Why aren't all stations like this?

  • New York Grand Central Terminal

    Grand Central Station is one of my favourite places for photography. The light is great and ever changing. 3 Exp merged in Photomatix and finished in Lightroom. Sony A6000, 1/3 sec at f4. Fisheye adapter on 16mm Sony lens.
