photoblog image The eye in the clouds

The eye in the clouds

This was taken last week in central London and I'm sure you all know what this is. Its a simple photo but I tend to like it for that.

It seems our theme will be starting on the 9th of June with the theme 'fruit' something nice and simple to start off with. So on that day everybody can put their images up. I am really interested to see what people will put. An email reminder will go out soon abouyt the theme.

Mmm.. I'm going to have to make same comment as I did with your "A London landscape" a few days ago. I can see haloing around the carriages, especially those in front of the darker bits of cloud.
sk: Yea I know it came about from processing and I couldn't remove it, any ideas?
look like set from scifi movie...really nice composition and colors tonesmile)
sk: thanx very much

i like how you position the carriage. you just provided enough space for the already "spaceous" sky.
sk: thanx Rayts

Very good shot, something surreal and dreamy about it, it could have been the frontpage of an Aasimov book.. Anyway nice! take care!

The composition is very nice and the pic looks quite futuristic. I guess I probably have seen the subject too often though in various versions to really be affected by the picture emotionally.

The composition is really nice, feels kinda 'back to the future'.

Nicely composed, it's hard to be original on such a subject but I think where it may not be original it is still very well executed.

I think it's the complementary colours of the subject and background as well as the simplicity of the composition that makes this work so well.

The "halos" can also be formed by heavy feathering of an accurate selection before applying your actions. Accurate selection is a must though. Zoom to at least 300%, but probably more, to make sure you see what you're doing. Then feather the selection by a few pixels - experiment between, say, 2 to 5 - for a more natural blend.

I like this shot it is not the run of the mill pic of the Millenium Wheel you always see...
Another interesting view of this overly, overly, overly taken subject. Only the people on Shutterchance seem to get this right. I'm loving the negative space.
Nice composition. I like that the ferris wheel is not centered.
sam from topleftpixel just posted a picture of this as well, man i have to get to london smile
