Cityscape of my hometown Bikaner's old city.
Looks interesting all things compressed due to tele lens.
Edit: as suggested added little bit of saturation to last image, now the blue colors has came up nicely.

Madhur, these are realy nice!
I love the colours and the chaos in these pics,
and I think a tele was a good choice!!
I would brighten up the last one a bit
and ad some contast+saturation....

Thanks for the suggestion, I will try it, last one has more variety of colors, adding saturation will surely make it beautiful.

madhur,
I was interested in seeing your pics, i'd tried something like this before, but with far fewer buildings. I didn't get much of a reaction in the local forum i tried them on, but i still like the idea.

I think your 3rd picture is the best, not so jumbled and eaiser to pick out details. I'd suggest being careful not to over pp it, some saturation, but it seems like i always go too far down that road :-)

you might try this shot closer to twilight when a few lights have started to appear and see what that looks like.

congratulations on images!

You have an interesting view there Madhur.
I'd suggest revisiting this scene with a slightly wider angle (like in the last capture) to incorporate some of the sky in the twilight hours. A dramatic sky and hint of night lights would add more interest to the image.

Thanks for sharing this.

Thanks for the ideas, I will try to take few shots during dawn & night.
This is the most crowded part of the city.

Revisiting these I wonder whether they might be more effective without the sky & skyline--just fill the frame with buildings.

For me, the skyline is orienting. I'm too much of a realist too much of the time, I guess.

I think these are great photos. I'd be interested in seeing the third with a touch more contrast.

The suggestions above for trying some evening or dawn photos with city lights are very good.

City scenes always captivate me. Once in NYC, I took a pretty casual shot out of a friend's apartment window. When I got home, I loved the way all the water towers were compressed together and the way the red bricks of various buildings contrasted (different shades of red) between each other and the blue sky. Turned out to be one of my fav pics (since lost in a cruel hard drive failure during backup).

These remind me of that photo. Good work!
