The Shaping of the Shard by DonDavisUK

The Shaping of the Shard.
Captured from Borough High Street, Lambeth, London.
Don’s Photography Blog

The new Shard building is growing rapidly right next to London Bridge Train Station and Guy’s Tower. It will dwarf Guy’s…
Camera Nikon D700 with 28-300mm Lense,
ISO 320, 1/500th sec at f/5.6, Matrix Metering, App Priority. Handheld.
Six Tonemapped Exposure from one RAW file, using Photomatix Pro 3.
Converted to B&W in Lightroom 3. Two images exported to CS5 one B&W and one Colour as layers. Then overlay mode used to merge and reveal details. Simples really:-)

Life is so precious and worth recording for posterity.
