Urban landscapes: a convention of bridges
HUNGERFORD BRIDGE AND GOLDEN JUBILEE BRIDGES, LONDON, ENGLAND
It was a smoggy day when my wife and I went on the London Eye, a giant ferris wheel along the banks of the Thames River. This was one of the views we saw and I did a lot of work in Photoshop to bring out the best in this scene. The bridges run into Charing Cross Railway Station, which was featured in the James Bond movie Skyfall.

You did a fantastic job with your processing. Nothing looks over done. Just perfect!
Great image, Frank. I have walked over that bridge countless times to the Southbank. The walk along the south bank of the Thames to Tate Modern and then on to Tower Bridge and even further is a great walk – did you get an opportunity to do that?
Thanks for the kind words. I would have LOVED to have walked that bridge, but we only had 2.5 days in London and it was quite the whirlwind. Maybe next time. 🙂
I know the feeling – when we toured BC we were always on the move – different place every day and so little time.
Absolutely fantastic, Frank~~
I saw it without looking at the location and I KNEW it was London! Charing Cross is such a central hub, I love the boat close the the bridge, nice composition!
