I love the POV you took this at Faisal. The dark tones work well with the dramatic sky. The only issue I have with this image is that parts of the sky are blown out. Why don't you clone some other parts of the sky at low intensity into the blown areas? #679562

Thank you so much, Peter. Appreciate your visit and beautiful comments.

Not a good cloner myself, but will give that a try. Cheers #4431942

Great perspective here! And I love the miix of old and new architecture. It makes me want to book a flight to the UK! #4548943

I enjoy the repeating patterns, perspectives, and symmetry I see in throughout your gallery Faisal. You have an eye for the shot :)

Thank you so much Garth and Crystal #5408813

Very nice image, beautiful.
the center section where the green walk way converges, remove the green boxed section, it cries obvious editing, this box removes the innocents from this lovely photo. #5409138

Faisal Almalki 1/28/2008 1:08:51 PM

Thanks a lot, Bernard. If the box you're talking about is the one on top of the building, then it's 100% natural. In fact, I even desaturated it a bit. Must be the rain effect but i'm not sure what is that.

Cheers #5409165

Bernard 1/28/2008 4:09:29 PM

I'll guide you to the box.
stating on the upper green walkway to the right, walking toward the building, follow the left handrail to the end, the handrail forms the top of the box.
But, after closer examination I see that this box is also natural, in the future I will have to be more carefull.
sorry! #5409956

Faisal Almalki 1/28/2008 4:17:44 PM

Thank you for taking the time to point out what you were talking about. And yes, that triangle is a part of the bridge. I have another images taken from that exact position and it shows the triangle (but it looks a lot bigger than it is because a wide lens was used). You can see it here at:
