Observation Tower. Stephen Riley Photography, Somerset, UK

On the up…

One from a recent shoot, taken from a steep angle, accentuating the height and drama of the tower.

The challenges in this shot were capturing the mechanics of the structure, which were mostly in shadow, whilst not over-exposing the sky and other light areas; also, getting as much of the tower into the lens, in focus, as possible. This meant using a wide-angle lens and a fairly high f-stop and, of course, shooting RAW. The chap walking into shot in the orange T-shirt was very welcome, adding a splash of colour just in the right spot.

Anyone recognise the place, or can guess where it is? (Not in the UK).
