Brighton Pavillion at Dusk
Taken at f16 over 5 seconds at ISO 200 with a wide angle lens at 10mm on a tripod.
I took this photo after feedback from a judge on another long exposure photo I’d taken at night. The judge said shooting at dusk can often improve the sky for long exposure shots, so I gave it a try with this photo during a stay in Brighton last year.
Saw this Building and knew it would look good as a Black & White picture. the Sky was amazing too which helps the building stand out.
Taken on visit to London this image is the result of experimenting with camera angles to emphasise the geometry of the built environment. I hope the black and white processing brings out the textures, contrast and shapes of the setting. The refection of the Lloyds Building adds to the detail.
” 20 Fenchurch Street” which is the proper name of the building but it also has the nickname “The Walkie-Talkie”
I was attracted to the blues of the building and sky. I used a low angle to try and emphasise the height of the building and add a dynamic feel to the picture.
