    thats quite cool.
    tripod or rested on the railings?

    i am in london but i rarely do these kinds of shots ....

    maybe i should...

    i am always a bit paranoid in london, uk generally, unfortunately...

    you are so lucky.. for me the sun set at 4pm. The low lighting conditions didn't allow me to capture good shots.. And I didn't have a tripod with me.

    Time to get a tripod...

    ps, i really like ur fireworks shots on ur flickr

    My 2 cents:

    1) Not sure if it is my PC or wat but the pic looks bit soft.
    2) The railing at the bottom of the pic is distracting
    3) If your intent is to capture the light trails from the bus, trails made by the car seems to grab more of my attention
    4) My! There is another photographer opposite you taking your pic!

    i'm pretty sure thats regents street, possibly from piccadailly circus...at half a guess anyway
    shame london hasnt really got a equinox for a nice view of the city...
    the london eye 'hamster wheel' isnt really something i can pop up in, have a drink/meal and take photos...

    get a tripod?
    small aperture, slow shutter...
    check your results and compensate however you need to get the result youre after.

    bear in mind the season/time of year though - its madness out on the streets
