I decided to head up to Central London after sunset on Christmas Day - traffic was non-existent as were the parking and congestion charges.It was a good opportunity to see what the Nikon D700 made of these familiar views and it did not disappoint. Two-faced DemocracyISO 4000 1/40s f/3.5This image is sadly affected by the D700's sensor blooming where bright light sources cause the bright bands across the entire row of the sensor. ReflectionsISO 5000 1/10s f/5.0Apart from the strikingly colourful reflections in the river, I am particularly pleased with the dramatic lighting of the clouds. It looks just like a portrait backdrop!With all these images, I let the D700 set the exposure with matrix metering, and save as JPEG with Active D-Lighting set to Auto. Guardians of St. Paul'sISO 3200 1/25s f/5.0I found these characters sharing a monument outside St. Paul's Cathedral, railings prevented me getting too creative with my vantage point but I quite like this one.I resisted temptations to replace Queen Victoria's sceptre with a light sabre. Multi-coloured riverNo collection of London landmarks would be complete without Tower Bridge - I like the variety of colours and textures in this shot, even HMS Belfast has got into the festive spirit.
