Excellent exposure Louis,
Looks like this is the Leica exile group with Andy and now you posting here.
Enjoy the SWC!

Yes, I was surprised (pleasantly) to see you and Andy here. I know Rolo is around somewhere (I think). Are there others?

Just read a strange word, begins with an L......
I will let it pass this time :z04_kommmalherfreun

I welcome everybody here and please note an SWC is nothing but a grown up L.... camera with a superb wide angle lens.
Try shooting hyperfocal.
At F5.6 everything from 2m till infinity is sharp.

Very nice image Louis!

When I see an image like this, with water right up to the foundations of the buildings, I always wonder how they manage to keep the water out of the basements. :confused:

Wonderful colours in this.

Re the buildings, I assume (don't you hate that word) their below ground/water level walls are part of the canal walls - after all, the canal walls keep the water in (otherwise it would all leach away into the soil eventually) so I guess they do it just as well in reverse. Bet they are damp inside though.

Thanks for all the comments. For those who may not know, the building with the 'egg cups' on it is the London MTV studios.

Analog6: that makes sense, the canal was completed long before the buildings so I suppose they just incorporated the canal walls into their foundations.
