Building the city
« on: May 05, 2014, 04:27:46 PM »
I took this yesterday.  I was on the 10th floor of another building that was also on higher ground so there was not much perspective correction needed in Lightroom.  It was converted using Silver Efex.  (click will make it larger)

nicely captured and processed. Like the contrast in building detail with abstract clouds.

B&W definitely works well for this.  :tup:
1 body, 1 lens, 1 flash gun, 1 tripod, 1 cable release & 1 filter. Keeping it simple!
(I lied, just got a second lens!)

Thanks.  It was actually not bad in colour, but the clouds look much better in B&W.  The sun was shining on the buildings.

Should have climbed to the top of that crane and took the picture looking down.  :P ???

Cracking shot.  :tup:

Access could be a problem.  One of the crane operators in the city is busy in Instagram and Twitter with all sorts of photos from his crane.  He has lots of downtime while he is up there.

Good work.
And it definitely looks better when it's large.
Well done.  ;)
May the Force be with you.

Nice contrast and detail, although I think I would feel drowned in the crowds that walk the streets below these concrete mansions if there was no Flora and Fauna.

Thanks everyone.  The buildings are of course not as close together as they look.  The tall one with the crane is about 2 km away.
