Totally gobsmacked, Photosam.
It is a work of great beauty.

I tried cropping the top down to the tip on the dome, and like it even better.
Samarth: i agree, a bit of cropping would do it good...
Very cool pp, lovely mate!
Samarth: thanks ashish...
Well done Sam. It works beautifully. Looks like a painting!
Samarth: thank you richard....
I agree with ray on the crop. Great soft lighting. richard
Samarth: thanks richard...

brilliant Sam!
Samarth: thanks paul...
This has obviously been photographed so many times, but you've made a really good interpretation here. Particularly like the blue tint on the glass, and all those cranes sticking out into the sky.
And I prefer it with the sky left in.
Samarth: thank you mark...
I like the futuristic and surreal atmosphere of this picture.
Samarth: thanks.

Great work, looks like a water colour. shame about all the cranes.
Samarth: thanks... they've been there for a while now and have almost become a part of the landscape...

Sam, I think this is a terrific shot. You have chosen a wonderful spot and have come up with a really innovated photograph. Truly impressed. (:o)
Samarth: thank you...
This almost ceases to be a photograph Sam but please don't interpret the comment as a negative is wonderful in so many other ways. Amazing!
Samarth: i have been toeing some lines of late but i can't help myself...
Great viewpoint and perspective Sam and a most unusual finish to it. I like it.
Samarth: thanks brian...
Very good perspective and colors .Superb.
Samarth: thank you...

Samarth: aye, no tripod at the time

Awesome job, Sam. The semi-panoramic 1x2 crop would tighten this up.
Samarth: agreed, thank you...
Outstanding job PhotoSam. This is just an excellent image, I like everything about. Agree that it is so surreal and futuristic.
Samarth: thanks john...

very impressive work Sam smile
Samarth: thanks!
Really really cool, looks surreal!
Samarth: thanks...
I've seen lots of shots of this view and taken a few myself. This is outstanding Sam. Looks rather HDR from the tonality. As Lagbaja suggests it would make a great multiple exposure shot from this view point. I must remember to take my tripod when I am next down that way!
Samarth: thanks digi... ditto about the tripod...
Nice work here Sam. You did a good job with this. smile
Samarth: thanks tom...
