Ivory Tower

Bit o' split toning today. Clearly the composition gods have got it in for me.

I am dead-impressed.
Your perspective and toning have revealed the unique tile patterns and they are fascinating.

So where were you when you shot this? I like the bird's eye perspective.
Samarth: thanks laurie... i was in a high tower overlooking this scene..

Samarth: thanks ashish, i was in a tower looking down on the houses...

I like the angle. It's either a cunningly realistic model village or you have extremely long legs.

I'm soooo impressed with the images on your blog. Great stuf.
Samarth: thanks harv... i would love to see a model village that intricate wink
thought that straight away about the model village, love the perspective and pping Samsmile

I was tipped by Raffi ( to check out your blog and I really like what I see! You have some excellent work! This one in particular is a spectacular view! Makes me wonder where you stood when you took this!
Samarth: thanks a lot arjan... i was about 50 feet above the houses when i took this one...

You do a nice job with these type of shots Sam. I like the vantage point feel to this image.It's almost three dimensional. Nice color and exposure.

50 feet above the houses in what?
High angle is definitely refreshing, good PP, just the right house is being cut off a bit. Good stuff though.
Samarth: thanks...
tower or balloon? Cool
Samarth: tower, thanks
