    For some reason the Guardsman shot would be my #1. Don't know why.

    Have you tried perspective correction to make Big Ben stand straight in shot 1? It freaks me out with it doing the Leaning Tower of Pizza imitation.

    I have (using Lightroom's Transform tool), but I accidentally uploaded the wrong one!

    Cool Images! The last one is my #1, even the Bif Ben is chopped of. Very moody.

    Man, it took me while to get the pizza tower thing :)
    I also often try to correct perspective of buildings etc. but many times the result look somehow wrong. Must be that we're use to tall images typically lean back in photos. The corrected version here works OK though.

    I'm sure the good folks of Pisa will be interested to find that their tower is made from Margherita's. :) Great shots, hope you're enjoying the trip!

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I'm finally getting around to seeing what I can do in Lightroom to make my shots look like I pictured them at the time.

    @(c)ow In the raw file for picture #4 I've got all of Big Ben visible, but I cropped out a pole I didn't like on the left side and this was the result. I'm going to go back & re-crop it with the aspect ratio unlocked to see if I like that result better.

    Excellent set - I like the Guardsman too, different angle on London

    That happen often: street signs, power lines etc. that disturb the composition. Sometime "content aware fill" in PS does the job.

    The guardsman is also my favourite - there's a story there (I just don't know what it is, and it doesn't matter anyway). Good shot.
