I took this photograph a few years ago at the end of a cycle touring trip from Istanbul to London. I was waiting for a ferry to take me across the river, so took some time out to have a stroll around the riverside and take some photographs. It was the middle of a bright sunny spring day,and when I saw the barbed wire on top of a low wall I peered through it and immediately saw this composition.

  • The cross processing adds a nicely gloomy atmosphere to the captivating subject.

  • Really like this! Great detail & love the colour too.

  • I love this Tony … iconic view in an orignal and creative new way.

    • Thankyou! I saw the barbed wire on top of a fence near the river with Canary Wharf in the distance and I had to put the two together!

    • Thankyou…..! I added what I suppose you might call a cross-processing curve in photoshop which gave the image the colour. The original colours were quite dull, sunny midday colours, but it was the composition that grabbed me.
