London When it Snows; Big Ben and Lovers

18 Jan

Westminster, London
Tuesday 05 January 2010; 2255 Hours
[Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 | ISO 3200 | 50 mm | 1/160 seconds | F/2.0]

Auto Focus wouldn’t lock on the couple so this is Manual Focus plus Live View. I have another one with the bus better placed (in my opinion anyway); I picked this one because I thought that the girl raising her leg expresses how she felt at that moment.

(I missed the "critical moment" of the kiss while battling with Auto Focus).

    The viewer can’t complain about what you missed; unless you say it, we have no way of knowing it. But what you did manage to capture, now that I certainly like. Very magical shot indeed.

    These “London When it Snows” photos are lovely! I agree with the first comment, this is a very magical shot. Nicely done 🙂 Are you going to post the other photo, where the bus is better placed (in your opinion)? I’d love to see it!
