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.

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 Wink
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.
