Canary Wharf and old houses composite

The towers of Canary Wharf seen from Greenwich are here juxtaposed with a foreground view as seen from London Bridge station several miles away. The neat row of tall chimneys on the 19th century terraced houses contrasts with the contemporary glass and steel structures of the new Docklands.

How obvious is it that this is a composite image?
