Tower Bridge London, by Leonardo Teles

One of the most iconic images of the old capital. Witness of such a myriad of events surrounding the Thames in its 115 years of splendor, it stands as a must see point at dusk or night. Its lights give us such a beautiful natural spectacle, a natural mirror when the ‘old river’s’ water are calm that a long exposure is a natural choice. For this particular piece, I believe I used the walls around the Thames to give me a stable platform and a remote control. A ND Grad filter allowed me to better control the different nuances of light and better capture the subject as a whole. The result is London, as it has been for over 115 years. A beautiful reminiscent of the glory of old days.
