thanks for adding Tom.  I like the last one best.  I always think the London Eye looks bigger and better when you don't see all of it.  Gives more context re scale.

I am of the opinion the "street sign" makes the picture.

The street sign absolutely makes the picture.  I hope the original comment was just a joke and the person posting forgot to add the little wink or smiley icon.

Did you get any hassle?  Around the London Eye etc is notorious for security idiots mistaking photographers for suicide bombers?

My guess...not a joke and he would like the photo better without the sign. Personal preferences are, well, personal. :)

I have taken photos of the London Eye at night with a tripod and no problems whatsoever.

I have only had trouble with with the goons outside London Aquarium.  The river bank walkway there is owned by the company, it is only a public right of way with their permission which can be withdrawn at any time. I was sitting eating a sandwich, my camera was on a tripod next to me, it was switched off.

"No pictures" said the goon...."No pictures"
"I am eating....I am not taking pictures, the camera is off"
"Take it off the tripod, tripod not allowed to take pictures"
"You got it wrong mate, the camera takes pictures, the tripod holds the camera"
"Take it off the tripod"
"I am eating my sandwich, when I have finished I'll be gone anyway"
"You must take it off now.....take pictures only with no tripod"
"I cannot take pictures unless my camera is on a tripod, I have Parkinson's disease.  If everyone else can take pictures except me....you are discriminating against me"
long silence, furrowed brow  "I will speak to my supervisor"
He marched off.....I finished my sarnie and left after whacking out another couple of shots with my camera on the tripod before he came back.

That is totally bizarre.  Not a good attitude for them to have for a destination whose very existence depends on visitors and tourists.

Yep the sign was deliberate otherwise its just another pic of big ben.

I had no problem what so ever with full tripod etc but I was on the bridge, had lots of people coming to talk to me which was nice although because of that took much longer to get the pics lol
