    That's the name Londoners have given to Norman Foster's tower (completed in 2004) otherwise known as the Swiss Re building. This shot includes the nearby St Andrew Undershaft, a church of c.1530, to give a pairing of the old and the new - a characteristic of the modern city.

    wow......the subject contrast makes any editing un needed to catch someones eye......what can say hey look better than a huge glass structure looming over an old stone structure such as that? Is that a lightning rod ground cable running down the left of that church?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    Definitely some heavy duty constrast going on there.... subjects themselves and the photograph. The compositionis excellent the sky color is a little disconcerting to me but that's just me. I never see a sky that color in nature. But that is just a personal thing it is an excellent photograph...
