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!

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?
