Next step in architecture is right behind...
Evolution nicely framed.
The weather conditions at the time may have spoiled your picture at the heights of the tallest building on the right, grey-ness in distant atmosphere result in a less contrasting image. Would a square crop work? Maybe but the it spoils a visual link of the triangle sides of the pyramid end of the skyscraper with the prominent facade loft part.
I thought it was shot with the latest Sony R1, but this one still seems kicking some @ss (in 2009). Great quality.
Thank you Pablo, very constructive and well described
Its a nice juxtaposition of old and new.
If you are familiar with Photoshop, the contrast difference is not difficult to deal with. It will improve the shot quite a lot I think. This is of course assuming this wasnt intentionally done.
If you are OK with PS and want to try to modify this, let me know and I can provide details. If not, I can send you a mod. Just send me a PM.
Thanks Willie, that's very kind of you.
I myself was experimenting a lot with this photo.
Made a version with equal contrast for all buildings, the one in the front and at the back, but...
That little haze that fades modern buildings at the back, tells a different story, like they are not there yet, they only appear in this photo as a glimpse, as our next step in architectural design.
However your suggestion is more than a valid, but I would like to stick with present one... for now
Thanks again Willie...
Thanks for the explanation. The idea is a good one, fading. I wounder then, since this is intentional, if the fade could be done using a gradient, so it gradually faded from bottom to top, - worth a try.
I like the contrast in architectural styles, the way you've juxtaposed the buildings.
i alsolike the fact the modern buildings fade in the distance, often a characteristic of a city environment.
Keith, that's very kind of you, thanks for your support
