Tribute to Mumbai

By Tigress
I am not worried if you don't give me votes for this shot. I have spent many visits to Mumbai and when I came home tonight after a long day's work, saw the devastation that terrorism can cause to a city. I visited the Taj Hotel which has been attacked and whilst I despair at the devastation to the heritage architecture, I more importantly remember the kindness shown by the staff who worked there . I don't know if they are still alive.
I am still intending visiting India in December- we cannot be controlled by terrorism. This shot is over the bay at Mumbai from another 4* hotel, which could have been attacked but was not at that time. To me it is the optimism of a new day- the sunrise over a vibrant, and wonderful country. If not for me, give them your vote. June x

This is a strange shot - in that the colours and arrangement are so peaceful and calm, yet the actual story behind it is anything but. It's a great juxtaposition, I think.

But the colours and tones are beautiful and I particularly like the way the eye is led from the top left down to the bottom right - great stuff!
