Business in London

Great Work at HDR Spotting

I started HDR Spotting last year to drive more attention to other HDR Artists out there. Whenever you click on a photo, it will take you to that artist’s website, portfolio, or wherever they wish. In the very beginning, to get it started, I put my own work on there, but I don’t any more since it has a vibrant life of its own now.

The site is still in beta as we add features, but there are still invites floating around out there. Be sure to go check out some stuff on the HDR Spotting main site or the Editor’s Picks. You guys should note that I am not the editor…hehe… We do cycle new editors in all the time and I hear it’s time for another crop to rotate in.

Daily Photo – Business in London

Walking along one side of the Thames after visiting some museums brought us to this business district. There was a misty rain for most of the day, so it set down a nice sheen of reflection. There’s a tiny water canal that runs through the center here, and the line leads right to the Tower Bridge (thx for edits in comments!), which you can see in the distance.

    Oh wow – love this one Trey – looks like a watercolor painting! The buildings are vibrant with color and I really like that little canal to the London Bridge – I’ve never seen that before – Super work!

  • Like the pic and the reflective colours the paving gives being all wet
    Well seen and a good lead in to the old tower

  • Lovely image and colors! Makes me wish I was in London.
    And thanks for mentioning… it’s a great site, really lets me know when I am on track and when I’m off-base in my HDR processing (about 50% each way, I’m sorry to say- lol) but it drives a TON of people towards your photo page (in my case, my website and it’s a great tool to have around. You really get to know what sort of quality HDR is out there and what’s possible in this photo style. The editors do a really great job of picking excellent work. I’ve made the featured page several times and it is one of the best “rewards” I’ve gotten so far in photography… I look forward to having an editors pick (someday, maybe). I check the site obsessively… if you couldn’t already tell that. πŸ˜€

  • Lol. That one is Tower Bridge πŸ™‚

  • That’s not London Bridge, that’s Tower Bridge. This is London Brdge:

    A previous London Bridge was dismantled and shipped to the US, rumour has it the purchaser thought he was buying Tower Bridge . . . . πŸ˜‰

    Love the photo. Next week I am heading to London, I’m doing a photowalk with hoping to make a nice HDR if I can.

  • Amit

    That’s Tower bridge not London bridge!

  • Kenneth Verburg

    Great dynamic image and colours! One correction though, the bridge in the background is Tower Bridge, it’s next to the Tower of London prison.

  • I headed down to the City Of London to London wall but was kind of hampered by dull weather and security guys coming out of buildings and telling me i needed permission to shoot despite the fact I was in the middle of the street and not actually in the buildings.

    Despite this, I did get a few interesting shots which i’d love to share with the guys…..

  • Looks great Trey. Love the leading lines.
    I’m in Queenstown with your mate Eden. Got in touch with him after your image and vid from his pond. I snagged one for myself as well. Might take a look if you want. When you coming back to this great place?


  • Simon Morris

    Wonderful shot Trey… I like the floor detail and different tones of green, excellent!
    The ‘HDR Spotting’ site is fab and I frequently visit… plenty of talented folk on there and always makes great viewing, superb! πŸ™‚

  • Gail in Montana

    Great job, Trey. Love all the colors reflecting on what looks like a wooden walkway!!! Very pretty. I agree with your Mom, looks like a water color painting!! Thanks for sharing, have a wonderful Sunday! πŸ™‚

  • Thanks!

    Tower Bridge yes yes – thank you for being helpful! I made the changes above πŸ™‚

  • Love all the color in this…red, blue, green. The blur on the left really adds to the shot I think.


    Wow, Ernst & Young!
    cool trey!

  • Love this shot Trey! and thanks for the visual tour of what we might be visiting and staying put soon πŸ˜‰

  • What a treat. I was standing just about where your tripod was placed one day last week.

    I’ll be in Hong Kong and China in May, and plan to use many of your shots as scouting images. Aside from your remarkable HDR talents, you also seem to find great locations to shoot from. I know some are by invitation, but not all.

    Thanks for a great travel site, combined with a great photography site.

    All the best,


  • “The” Gino

    The ghosted image across the left side – is that someone running through the shot? I really like that element. I know there’s a place for getting rid of the ghosted stuff but more often than not I think it adds a nice bit to an image. This is one of my favorite images you have put up in the last month. Great everything.

  • Thanks!

    Gino – yes – well someone walking through a long exposure. I liked it too – so I left it in…

    Steve – funny we were in the same place.

  • Love, love, love this!

  • Averil

    Love the photo. We were in London just before you were Trey. I was in heaven at all the magnificent places for photos. What a wonderful city to live in! Your photo brings back so much wonderful memories

  • Great image . . . love the combination of crisp detail and movement!

  • I love London and the mood of this really captures the place.

    Just wondering, if one doesn’t use Twitter, how might we know about invites to HDR Spotting when they arise?

  • lol at “the london bridge” – if there was only one I can’t imagine the traffic problems! This is Tower Bridge, and a development called ‘more london’ which houses Ernst and Young, the ‘Visit London’ tourism authority, and various other corporates – quite tastefully done too. Its on the south bank near hms belfast and City Hall. Great interpretation of the area Trey, love the alignment of the walkways with the bridge. Composition, care, composition!

  • tom hayden

    I think there was a scene from “Cold Feet” filmed in that very spot.

  • Jane

    Hi, I am a amateur painter and would like to use some of your beautiful shots as subjects for painting. Is that ok?

  • Jane – for sure – have fun with it… all my work is creative commons for reasons just like that!

  • Beth,

    I sent one your way -;0)
