Thames Barrier

The Thames Barrier was built between 1974 and 1982. The barrier's purpose is to prevent London from flooding during a freak high tide moving in from the sea caused by a storm surge.

These photos were taken on the north bank of the river.

The first HDR photo was tone mapped using five different exposures and the others were done using only three. The difference in overall tone and detail is evident.

The last photo had less shadow and highlight smoothing and the colour saturation was reduced.
