*~*~*~*~**~*~* HELLO TL MEMBERS *~*~*~*~**~*~*

Here I present another shot from the taxi while I was in the roads of Singapore. I actually like the building in vivid colors as it seemed to me like a building or castle which we watch in cartoons.

Thanks for the views and helpful ideas,

Best Regards,

Olá Ali,
Very good and interesting series.
Good capture from a urban scene, rich of details and colors. Good POV for the conditions you take the photo.
Good catch,

Hi Ali,

It appears that this photo has a slight tilt also, I wonder if it's due to the curvature of the windshield?? It's not too bad here, and maybe you could use the perspective tool to straighten, as it could also be due to lens distortion. In any case, a busy scene and I also like the colorful building to the right.

I see that you've opened your theme :)

Best regards,

HI Ali,
An interesting square presentation of city scene you have captured.
i also like the buildings and the sign.

Hi Ali,
Nice picture everyday. Your composition is very well made and play, congratulations.
Have a great Sunday,

Here again, my friend! I do not know how I missed these. I've been busy, and away some this weekend, but I still want to see your photos.

Hey, this is a good theme that you've started, "Through the taxi window." This must be a colorful place. I'm amazed that these came out so well. There's no way that I could do this.

If you're interested, I know a quick way to clean up some color noise in the sky without taking away from the building structures.

I hope you have a great one!


Hello Ali,

Nice shot of the city scape in vivid colors and details with the conditions you had. Very steady shot even from the taxi. Nice sharpness with good light and DOF.

TFS, have a nice day,
Mushtaq Hussain

To be honest, i think this is just a perfect example of why reciprocal critiquing is plain wrong.

Nothing of interest in the shot, sharpness isn't there, dominant feature is the tall lamppost and I can see nothing to justify the praise that has been received. If I gave my 4 year old daughter a point-and-shoot and asked her to snap out the taxi window I believe she could easily match this - or probably take something more interesting.

Ciao Ali, wonderful shoot from taxi windows, fantastic building with amazing colors, a very strange architecture, very well done, ciao Silvio

Very fine car, very fine architecture. Nice colors. Good contrast and sharp. Very fine saturation. Sophisticated effect. Fantastic work.
