P52-9-19 Theme: Cityscapes
Posted By: Tsukiouji, 06-28-2020, 03:34 PM

Pretty straightforward and neat theme. Not limited by the street photography rules, and still not quite landscape - it may be anything in-between.

Tips and references:
15 Tips for Breathtaking Cityscape Photography by Kav Dadfar

Photos for the Week #19 competition are to be taken between Jun 29, 2020 and Jul 5, 2020

1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-9 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed.
Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot, Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones, please.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

I'm 500 kms from a city with a population of at least 1 million, so no skyscrapers. Taken from a pedestrian overpass as the golden hour was coming to an end (9:12PM to be exact, which was less than 20 minutes before sunset). Which explains the lack of trucks.

Hillbrow Tower forms an important landmark (along with one other) for Johannesburg. This taken from Zoo Lake, and the 3 similar buildings are the Nurses Residents of Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital, the other being just part of the hospital complex. Taken at dusk.
