All right, this is quite of a shot. The playing of lights and the sky strangely colourful add a feeling of unreality. I'd see this photo quite well in a science-fiction themed album.

Was this by the Carrefour in front of Barasti(I forget the name of the hotel just now), if so I think I spotted you doing this and was wondering what it would turn out, and if that was you(and even if it isn't), it's brilliant. Almost doesn't look real.

Hmm, I'm not sure... I took that picture quite a while back :) And I did so by just laying the camera on the ground. If you saw me using a tripod I was rather taking pics for this pano:

Anyway, thanks for your comment! Glad you like it :)

I've always been told that if you walk around a city looking up, you'll look like a tourist...but with this view, who could resist. Great shot!

This picture definitely stands out from the rest. I was going through a ton of pictures and they were all so good, I couldn't make up my mind, until I saw this :D Great job! I love the colors and everything about it.
