Blackfriars Bridge by Night

Blackfriars Bridge by Night

I often create panoramic images by stitching several photographs together, but in this case this HDR photograph of Blackfriars Bridge, with St Paul’s Cathedral in the background, was created from a single cropped shot.

Irritatingly, I’m still getting used to the Canon 6D, whose GPS sucks batteries like nothing else! I foolishly forgot to turn the GPS on for all my shots on this day, but I think the location, on the South Bank of the River Thames in London, should be obvious to most!


A seven image HDR taken using the built-in bracketing on the Canon 6D. Additional finishing touches in Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Onone Perfect Effects.
