A tree grows in London? This is very nice actually, and I really like the black and white conversion (it is a black and white conversion isn't it, not just another dreary day in the UK?). I think that the centering of the tree really works here too.

Thanks, jct.
The tree marries the two sides.

I like the symmetry in the photo and the B&W conversion adds to the effect.

I like the tones in this one. It looks pretty close to the building on the right....I hope it doesn't grow much more or there might be a problem!

That's a busy landscape! The building and it's reflections look very Escheresque.

Another great shot from you of your neck of the woods. I'll be over in June and will look out for this tree!

Very nice capture, I really like the black and white treatment that you used. Also, couple that with the crazy lines of the tree vs the straight lines of the buildings make this very cool.

Nice job!

I love the unusual perspective and I'm a big fan of B&W!

Very sharp looking photo, B&W is relaxing (to my eyes anyway) yet just as detailed if done right and you've made it right.

Thanks very much everyone, i'm glad you appreciate it.

rparmar, I think you'll find a lot more to photograph, besides.

Well seen and shot, B/W works perfectly here and the reflections and tree are spot on.

No doubt! I love the architecture and small details everywhere... but I guess that shows from my Flickr stream. I'm not so good at people or "street" shots, so I leave that to experts!
