London Imperial War Museum

I've been concentrating lately on studio photography but decided to give Polly a weekend off. I had a wander over to the Imperial War Museum, the main thing I was after was the atrium at the top of the building, but I took a few shots while wandering around. It is a great museum and well worth a visit. I had hoped to get a shot outside with the cannons and the clouds moving the the background but that wasn't meant to be this time. I imagine the atrium will look pretty impressive at night too so will be back later in the year.

 This is the image I came for, quite happy with it, could have maybe removed the door to make the image a bit stronger.  This is a 3 shot HDR. around these settings :   12-24 f4 at 12mm, f4.5, 1/500, iso100

 I think the lower down composition is better, although I like the composition without the door in.  This is a 3 shot HDR. around these settings :   12-24 f4 at 24mm, f4.5, 1/500, iso100

 This would look loads better with clouds and maybe at twilight, I'll be back later in the year for that one.  This is a 3 shot HDR. around these settings :   12-24 f4 at 12mm, f5, 1/1250, iso100

 I thought this was just some cool art, its actually a section of the Berlin Wall!  16-35 f4 at 35mm, f4, 1/200, iso 100
