This is a shot of the Leadenhall Market Building in the City of London taken on a London day trip in June. The site was used for market trading from Roman times though the first building for a Market was built in the early 14th century. The present magnificent wrought iron and glass structure was designed in 1881 by Sir Horace Jones, architect and surveyor for the City of London Corporation. Jones’ other work included Tower Bridge. The Market was included in the film Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle lens at 10mm.

3 raw images were taken at 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.
