The Millenium Dome


Click image to view at 1000 pixels wide



London's Millenium Dome was built as an exhibition pavillion to mark the change of century, on a reclaimed industrial site in Greenwich. It was a controversial project seen as a money-pit by many. Open during the year 2000 with millenium-related exhibitions, it fell into disuse and has subsequently been revitalised as part of "The O2" entertainment district. I took this shot at high telephoto at the beginning of November, 2007, as my plane was circling London waiting for landing permission. The softness of the image is due to the accute angle through the window, and the colour, contrast and sharpness were all adjusted to maximised the result. Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic.
