Hi all... was working in central London over the summer. Took these in and around Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square after work, before heading back to my digs. All Pentax K1ii and various lenses inc DFA 15-30, DFA 24-70. Have a few more, and also some icm/multiple exposures, which I'll post in a bit.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Certainly up to your usual high standard Bill. A cracking set indeed.
My personal favourites at first view are No. 2, with that lovely sweeping curve, embracing lens distortion of the buildings. No.3, Luck or judgement? You could not have timed your exposure with that bus any better and it all works so well together. Of what I perceive as your more standard city shots No.9 pips it to the top.
I would like a little explanation of what I'm looking at in No.8, never mind thin blue line this is a fat blue line and in No.4 what gives with the area of movement in an otherwise static scene? The combination of movement and static not quite working as well in this shot as in the others for me myself.
Technically the photographic quality of all of them looks amazing.

As Nigel's said, your usual high standard. 2, 6 & 7 are my favourites.

3 and 10 for me but being picky I'd prefer No.3 cropped on the right hand side as that traffic light hurts my eyes

Wonderful set, with innovative variations. You must have been working late, judging by some of them!

All very crisp, sharp and dazzling! The colour balance from the tungsten lights on the buildings (is it Bath Stone I think?) is controlled well.

I prefer those where the deep blue is still apparent in the sky, and the last is really my absolute favourite.

Great shots Bill.

No.2 without doubt the standout for me...so unexpected as you scroll down...wow.

I also rate No.5 for the composition and colours.

The others aren't bad either!

No.2 by a country mile for me.

As interesting as anything posted for a long time that one.

Cracking set though. 9 and 10 also really appeal to me.
