Rathaus (Town Hall)
Vienna, Austria

The Rathaus is a building in Vienna which serves as the seat both of the mayor and city council of the city of Vienna. The town hall also serves, in personal union, as Governor and Assembly of the State of Vienna, a state with the Austrian federal system. The Rathaus was designed in the Neo-Gothic style, and built between 1872 and 1883. On the top of the tower is the Rathausmann, one of the symbols of Vienna. Facing the Rathaus is a large park, the Rathauspark. The Rathaus also accommodates the historic ‘Wiener Rathauskeller’ restaurant. The traditional restaurant consists of several baroque halls, offering small traditional Viennese delicacies to grand gala buffets. For further information visit Wikipedia.

The War of the Worlds by Turnipfarmer

Kings Cross Station, London, England – http://bit.ly/1FZgNen

This is one view I have been trying to master for ages and also edit the way I want it to and this is the final edit that I am actually happy with.

Originally taken with my old A700 and the Samyang fisheye attached to it, it wasn’t the easiest of photos to line up but quite happy with the job I did.

I was quite fortunate to see this new part of the station before it opened to the general public a few years ago as I worked at Kings Cross. It was quite unusual seeing a mainline station with only a handful of people in and around it, something that will never happen now. I would have tried to get this image when I went to the special opening ceremony but sadly this was the place the host was talking from.

City Hall, London, England – http://bit.ly/1FZgNen

Almost forgot about this photo from Open House few years ago, a photo lost in the load of others. Not the easiest of photos to edit due to the high highlights and low lights of the shadows but I think I have it about right and balanced.

This was taken with my old 8mm Fisheye which sadly I don’t have anymore as the lens didn’t fit on my full frame camera when I upgraded however I do have the 14mm version which is a lot better and I am sure would capture something very similar to this.

I probably won’t be visiting City Hall this year as I have been here a few times and it is one of the most visited and well photographed locations on the Open House circuit.

I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Southwark Underground Station, London, England – http://bit.ly/1FZgNen

Probably one of my favourite, if not my favourite Underground station on the whole network. I just love the timeless modern architecture going on here at this station, its certainly stood the test of time as this station was built in 1999.

My favourite part of the station has to be this Obelisk in the middle of the two platforms, its stunning, certainly reminds me of a lighthouse. Its quite unique as I can’t think of this architectural feature anywhere else on the tube network, even on the newish Jubilee Line Extension stations.

Seeing stations like this built about 15 years or so ago gets me really excited about the brand new Crossrail stations, I bet they will be a great addition to London’s growing transport network and I am hoping that some of these stations will be available for a sneak preview during Open House London this year, fingers crossed!!

Vortex (Redux) by Turnipfarmer

City Hall, London, England – http://bit.ly/1FZgNen

All this talk about Open House London has made my have a fresh look at some of my older photos that I have taken during Open House. As promised this is a continuation of my Open House series so it can help you decide on certain venues.

I have always liked this photo when I took it however looking at my editing style from 4 years ago I was not as keen on it as I once was. I thought this would be a perfect candidate to get editing on and this was the result.

When I first started out in photography my editing style did include HDR quite a bit but now I hardly do HDR at all, I am just not keen on its look and I go for my natural editing styles and editing styles which I feel compliment the overall image.

How have you found your editing styles have changed over the years? Do you prefer yours now or how it was back then?

Pyramidenkogel Tower
Klagenfurt-Land, Carinthia, Austria

Pyramidenkogel is an 851 m high mountain in Carinthia, Austria. It is located to the south of the Wörthersee and near the town of Maria Wörth. The mountain has been a tourist attraction since at least the late 19th century. The first observation platform on top of the mountain had been built in 1950. The new tower is built of wood and steel, and with a height of 100 metres it is the tallest wooden observation tower in the world. The structure features a visitors platform at 83 m, a cafe at 70 m, and a 66-metre long slide, the longest slide in Europe. For further information visit Wikipedia.
