@Aroon - Thanks sirji !
@Madhav - Thanks Madhavji !!!
@Aniltulsi - Yeah I was very disappointed when I actually saw the clouds but thankfully the camera had enough dynamic range to capture some detail in the clouds that are not viewable to the naked eye.
@Anandrajkumar - Thanks !
@Omkar - Thanks Omkar
@Chillum - Thanks doc ! Yeah first one the sky was a total write off but it was the only one with lots of london guards so I posted it.
@theqca - Ah yes, you are correct but no I did not get to see the bridge getting suspended. We barely got any time to do anything in London as we were here for barely a day and a half before leaving.
There was tons of crowds and I was extremely sleeply ! The problem was that I switched my wristwatch to GMT from the GMT + 1 in Europe. But I forgot to change my alarm clock so we woke up at 4:30 am rather than 5:30 am.
And I set my Sigma 70-210mm f2.8 to f8 on an overcast day trying to shoot action. So I got plenty of blurred photos for my goof up.
And thanks !
@Toofan - Thanks sirji.
@iamsomnath - Thanks sirji, point notes. I realized you are right after you pointed it out.
@Francis - Thanks buddy ! And nope no Kate Middleton shot !
@Image - Thanks for the positive feedback but I was really on auto pilot mode that day. Lack of sleep and a really grueling schedule of waking up at 5 am and 6 am everyday for 14 consecutive days took a toll on my fat lazy arse !
15 and 16 are the only HDRs that were clicked. The originals didn't have enough dynamic range to capture the whole scene but believe it or not the HDRs are quite close to the actual scene that day. I was really struck at how dark and foreboding the skies were and after a few futile attempts to try and capture the full dynamic range with a single exposure I switched to bracketing and took these two photos.
