Congrats on your gorgeous POTD #9071676

Salim Al-Harthy 11/30/2010 7:30:21 AM

Thank you all, I am honored


All the arc had a light below them reflecting to it. Except that particular one. I guess the bulb was not functioning :)

This photo was taken during the BLUE HOUR (When the sun has set and before the dark came through). My favorite time during the day and you get the best photo results.

No. I didnt use any photo shop, I try to get my photos from the get go, bit of contrast and leveling here and there, but thats it #9071686
