Ăăăăă.... Okay . I don't know how to start . This is one of the few photos that make me just stare at them and do nothing . Ăăăă... I'll go and smoke a cigarette and after that I hope that some ideas will come . Okay now : )... As I was saying I'm definetely stunned about this amazing work of yours . I've seen a lot of photos of this kind around here but none of them compares to this . The photo is very original in it's own way . Despite the fact that the photo is made at a late hour, as far as I can see, it doesn't seem to show this aspect . The lights give a pleasant atmosphere to the whole skyline and a glamorous look also . The difference between the warm orange of the city and the cold blue of the horizon makes the photo even better . I want to ask you now if you made the photo from your appartment or if it's made from another place where you asked permision to make this wonderful work . Either way, it doesn't matter . The entire composition it's great ! I really don't know what to say more, As I said... The viewer can stare at it for hours and still won't get bored by it . You did a fine job making it ! I want to congratulate you, because you surely deserve and I'm waiting for more interesting works of yours .
Have a great day !

The aspect is wonderful, almost to the point of tilt'n'shift. The hue is so warm and inviting. It takes a lot to get a deep, lush warm tone to work well, it can go horribly wrong and look oversaturated, but this is spot-on perfect!

War so zwischen 7 und 8 am Abend, da hast du noch die Dämmerung und relativ viel Licht zur Verfügung. Die Lichter sind wirklich so geld, ja. ;) Wenn du da in die Ferne schaust, siehst du nur ein gelbes Lichtermeer.
