Well these are just brilliant Rense.
Stunning detail and texture.
Exquisite B&W conversion.
The architecture comes to life here!
#3 is just phenomenal. But ol' Big Ben's well portrayed here as well.
Love your work Rense.

Rense,
They are so sharp it is almost like looking at a very detailed model at close range.
Great work!

Very nice pictures!
The detail in your first picture is amazing…..
but somehow the second picture is my favourite…
it gives me a soothing, relaxing feeling!

Rense, I love the St. Steven's tower and the last one (I presume that's St. Paul's)

Loved all three, especially the last one, it really converts the feel of the enormous building hanging over you.
#2 has a very interesting perspective, made me think about it a bit before understanding how it looks in real life.
Perfect processing on all three. What lens(es) did you use?

These are terrific, Rense. I'm quite fond of the last one (I'm also guessing St Pauls).

Very good Rense, but I really like no-2. beautiful contrast and and excellent juxtaposition of the architecture elements.

Thank you! The first two are made with the DA 70, the last one with the A 28/2.8.
