Sydney at sunset (Australia)

The ones in the immediate foreground are large apartment blocks but there are also plenty of single houses in that area. I found the large yellow apartment block on street view if anyone’s interested. Just search for 22 Carlisle Street, Rose Bay and you’ll

Tehran, Iran

It’s a short article, but if someone is on mobile or something or otherwise doesn’t feel like opening it: Stepping back from 3 meters to 100 meters away from someone will shrink them by one hell of a bigger factor than stepping back from

Moscow, Russia, from sky

I don’t think “industrial” was meant as a criticism. This picture does have a very industrial look, and the “steam stacks” add to it. The wintery colors, the layout, and the soviet-era buildings (which look a lot like shipping containers in some places) add

Champs-Élysées Paris

I’m going to assume you are thinking that the domed roofs are mosques. I count 3 and they are (from left to right) “Église Saint-Augustin” (church), “Le Grand Palais” (a beautiful museum) and “Les Invalides” (Le location of Napoleon’s tomb). Paris is actually one

Downtown Los Angeles

Can someone who knows some shit about photography explain what’s usually going on in these kinds of shots? All these wallpaper-y kind of pictures of a big city by night look the same in a way (and not at all like reality) but I

Chicago from a Ferris Wheel

Personally I think when everything starts to look dark it’s getting to be too much. This could be amplified by the fact that the whole picture is kind of dark, but the saturation is also bringing out some noise in the sky. And it

A rainy New York City street framed like a movie shot

I know someone else responded similarly, but seriously, you picked the absolute best time to come. Every time I think I am tired of living here (usually around August-September when the heat and humidity are unbearable), Christmas rolls around. Do the most touristy things

Shanghai

I think most of those look bad, especially the space images as they are not images of things that recede into the background. The whole point of this sort of thing in the first place is to mimic the shallow depth of field you

My father took a picture of Manhattan in 1983.

~~Nope, it was taken from New Jersey, or from a boat on the Hudson River. The image is not flipped.~~ I stand corrected: http://www.123rf.com/photo_20516219_this-is-the-downtown-manhattan-skyline-and-statue-of-liberty-it-is-the-view-from-new-jersey-at-dusk-.html

Large panorama of Manhattan just after sunset

Sure- so for panoramas like this you definitely need to use a tripod, one with a level on the legs is best for making sure its perfectly level because you’re gunna be spinning the camera around the column and if it’s even a little

City that saw the War, Warsaw, Poland

For old architecture other than Kraków see Toruń (medieval), Zamość(renneisance) and Lublin (renneisance, medieval, baroque). Lublin has even own version of renneisance style. For modern architecture – mostly Warsaw. If you like castles see Malbork Castle in northern Poland, Wawel in Kraków obviously, and

Tel Aviv at dawn

Having only been there to visit friends I obviously cannot hold a candle to your expertise and experience. I’ll say that it has it’s filthy/scary parts with crackhookers, dead homeless people, shit, piss, alleycats and syringes everywhere (looking at you there, southern Tel Aviv,

Vancouver, Canada: “A friend of mine thought this picture was a photoshop creation, or something like that. It’s not. It’s actually just a trick of the fog making it look like two photos put together. It’s just lucky (or perhaps I should say patient) timing,” writes Mark Donovan.

I disagree. Maybe racists used it as a blanket term, but everyone I knew understood Hongers are from Hong Kong and it was not derogatory. I was in high school in the 90s, all the new Chinese kids were from Hong Kong due to

Chicago in the summer

it was a wonderful place to raise our two children on a side street off Grand. We had a beautiful flat from the 1800s with gorgeous wood floors and full amenities that overlooked the city. From our front room with 12 foot ceilings and

Pyongyang, North Korea

It reminds me of Charn in C.S. Lewis’ “The Magician’s Nephew”, particularly when Jadis is talking about Charn becoming empty of its people: “The last great battle,” said the Queen, “raged for three days here in Charn itself. For three days I looked down

Dubai in fog

Well, that’s just like, your opinion man. Seriously though, it’s not on the same level as what’s happening in Dubai. Look, i’m pretty fucking socialist so I definitely understand and agree that wage slavery is a thing, but you can’t possibly be suggesting that

HDR photo I took of Tokyo

See, that is my problem. I moved to a small city when coming back (due to family). Totally different feel to it, and I miss the neon lights and busy lifestyle so much. I, like you, would need to be fluent in Japanese for
