Default London - a different perspective

Wasn't sure if this should be travel, architecture or even aerial photography but...

I happened to be visiting the 27th floor of a building with excellent view of London so of course had to take my camera. Got plenty more to stitch/process/post but here's a first - a HDR looking over the Thames, the Milennium wheel on the left, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament centre and the 'Shard' behind it with the City on the right:

And a panorama looking from Buckingham Palace on the left round to the City on the right. The full panorama is stiched from 11 shots using Hugin and processed in AutoHDR. It's 10000x2000 in total.

I really like the first picture...reminds me of a line drawing. Lovely picture. The dark sky adds to it.

Nice Shots, very nice exposures and I like the color balance on the last one between the greens on the trees and the blues in the sky.

The first image looks like a digital environment. That's an excellent capture, Martin and the gloomy sky adds more depth to the photo. As for the pano, I have to concur with Photo 5. It shows great color balance. Kudos to you for these excellent shots.
