English: The Shard, taken from the Sky Garden atop the "Walkie-Talkie". A window is open, which allows a crane to lower a box that holds the window cleaners. The people walking at the bottom of this tower are approximately 170 × smaller than the building.
Photographer's notes: The image is stitched from 28 landscape-orientation frames in three columns. The viewpoint is the balcony of the "Sky Garden" at the top of the Walkie-Talkie. This is approximately halfway up the 306m Shard and 750m distant. A Sony A77II camera was used with Sony 55-300mm lens at 160mm. The exposure was f/5.6, 1/1000s and ISO 200. The camera has hand-held and, although the balcony is "outside", the view is behind glass that appears to have a slightly blue tint. These factors necessitated some downsizing of the final stitch to achieve a high quality image.

NOTE: This image is a panorama consisting of 28 frames that were merged in Hugin. As a result, this image necessarily underwent some form of digital manipulation. These manipulations may include blending, blurring, cloning, and colour and perspective adjustments. As a result of these adjustments, the image content may be slightly different than reality at the points where multiple images were combined. This manipulation is often required due to lens, perspective, and parallax distortions.
