hello SImon,

Super photo :)  i like the surrealism in it. Again that great nightcolours. The tilt works very well here. I can see you have a great time in BKK :)

Salut Simon,

I thought you took this in Vegas, that is the feel, so kitchy American stuff, really great, the colours are extraordinary, the blue of the sky intoxicatingly so, the red of the lcd or whatever frame works magically with it. And then there's that weird tilt that pulls me even closer to this weird scene. Bravo!

Stupendous night colors Simon. I love that last light in the sky. The tilt and the dino make this a very intriguing image

All the best

The exagerated tilt gives me a slight seasick, it shows that you were limited by your angle (although 16mm is already something wiiiiide on a FF camera) but the colors are really fantastic... that's what night photography is all about.

Interesting one.  I think you should just turn it 90 degrees clockwise, so it's a portrait orientation.  Best, -h.

Great urban shot with blindingly good color, Simon! Love the split along the diagonal. It's Vegas just as much as BKK... or "The Lost World" by Spielberg. terrific fun and very exiting and daring photography. A FAV.

The blue of the sky is extrordinary! I think Animesh has a point about the tilt. I find it a bit too severe as well. I find that I have to tilt my head too much to see it!

Hi Simon,
Very interesting scene and great color.  But I am afraid either the tilt is too severe or it would be more effective in the opposite direction so the neck of the brontosaur would tilt to the right of the frame.  Here the backward tilt seems to reduce the space.
Best wishes,
