Tate Britain

After living in London for around seven and a half years now, I still have a massive list of places to visit and photograph. Tate Britain is well up there, so today I decided to pay a visit. We actually had a warm day in London, which led to the museum not being too busy, making my job a little easier. I went in with a few ideas for compositions, mainly around the main hall and the dome. I had a good wander around but I did miss a few exhibitions, so will definitely be back. I was in a bit of a rush to get back for the Grand National!

I took along the 85mm f1.4 and my 12-24 f4, both fantastic lenses. Here is what I came away with.

 Golden ration composition going on here, quite happy with this one. I did have to remove someones hand though.  This is a 3 shot HDR, with 2 shots 3 stops either side of the below settings.  12-24 f4 at 12mm, f4, iso 100, 1/125 Second
