The facade of the National Gallery in London, UK, is quite an impressive sight at daytime. At night, with it's golden palette light, it is no less magnificent. I was ready to stay until late night to have the place free of people in the scene. At 10p.m. on a freezing December night, Trafalgar Square was almost empty. A long-exposure was required to take this shot, which was long enough to blur the few clouds in the sky, but not long enough to blur the stars, which you can see faintly in the print.
This print is printed on Fuji Gloss, an extra smooth, medium gloss C-Type professional photographic archival paper, 246gsm in weight.
