This is kind of a straightforward angle of these impressive buildings, but the light was fantastic when I was there... it was actually the only rain-shower I had on my London trip but even this grey rainy hour turned out great. I shot almost 2000 images in 4 days so there will probably be some more posts soon.

the humidity added to that steel and glass can make things glow like here ...well captured!

That's a great shot Lourens and as you say the light is fantastic. I love also the subdued colour and its relatively minimal amount. So also are the fluorescent lights. They give added value where the light is concerned and added interest to those buildings. Although it's rather drab outdoors one can imagine some possible activity going on inside. Good one!

I do like the almost monochrome effect here. Who says England is dreary?

Well seen combination of colors of buildings and the color of sky after the shower ... impressive effect from architecture in addition ...

best wishes

Lovely shot. The steel, concrete and grey sky work beautifully together.
