A 3 shot HDR Processed in Photomatix Pro

A reshoot with New camera !!

30 St Mary Axe, also known as the Gherkin and the Swiss Re Building is a skyscraper in London’s main financial district, the City of London, completed in December 2003 and opened on 28 April 2004. It is 180 metres (591 ft) tall, with 40 floors. Its construction symbolised the start of a new high-rise construction boom in London

Ever since a child, aviation has been a keen interest of mine, with warbirds being my favourite. Since joining Redbubble, I have become a keen follower of HDR work, which I am concerntrating on at the moment.

    Excellent shot … bet the last thing the architects of the building wanted to see happen, was for it to be colloquially named the Gherkin!

  • Yes true, but there are other wierder buildings planned !! (A mobile phone !!)
