    Excellent work, the birds, mist and B&W processing give this a kind of spooky feel.

    Excellent! You've got landmark London, the river, fog, gloomy skies and the birds; and all in B&W. It's got really great atmosphere and i like this a lot. Should be framed!

    Great composition, and the combination of b/w + birds creates a very dramatic effect. Plus, I just love the detail of the plane trails to the right :)

    Your photos are making me homesick for Enlgand - keep them going, though.

    Seems like a lot of photobloger are posting some great b&w today. Very moody shot. Was the white on the left, and dark on the right the result of burning and dodging? It leads my eye away off the frame on the left, instead of to the interest (for me anyway) of the building.

    I love the dark feeling of it -> it has something ghostly. I can't say what it is but I guess it is a mixture of everything: the fog, the clouds, the birds and the silhouette of the parliament. Amazing!

    Really nice shot Myles.
    Love the birds and I dig the synchronicity of the X on the pole and the half X in the sky.

    This is great. I checked out the larger version and I love it! I think the black and white does it wonders and would be a perfect shot to frame :)

    Great shot. Love the sharp birds in the foreground contrasted the more fadded silhouette of the parliment in the background. Lovely!

    Wow, this is an incredibly beautiful photo. I love the composition and the kind of gradient tones that you have here. I love it!

    Wow Miles, fantastic photo, very atmospheric!

    I was in London not two weeks ago and it can get very misty in the mornings, some days you wouldn't be able to see the other side of the Thames!

    I have some London photos in my blog, but none as impressive as this!

    Classic! The cityscape, the bridge and the birds, the jetlines in the sky... all come together in this beautiful compostion. I especially like how you managed to keep all the points of interest in the lower third. The big sky gives the impression of openness. Really nice.

    You never cease to amaze me Miles. I've seen that view a hundred times but never this atmospheric.
