Very nice shots - deep contrast and sharp as well
1 st picture - wide angle attached or panorama sitching done ?
2nd picture just love the cloud scene above the buildings' skyline


Did you use polariser filter for the skyline shots ?


Which model are you using and what's the setting for the WB ?


Sorry to ask these ? as need feedbacks to improve on my own skill.


Did really enjoy viewing

Love the first two. I'ma big fan of panoramas and that's a really unusual skyline.

I like shots 2 and 3 but the do not seem to have any life to the colors. What camera are you using and do you do any PP. If you would like to see what can be done I will post the two shots in this thread.

thanks Steve

here goes.

I'm using a FZ5, no polarizer, always have it with me but only use it when I want to get rid of reflections (or enhance them).

the first picture is the fz5 + raynox 6060, the others are just the fz5

first 3, are in shutter priority mode 1/160,
wb, automatic
spot metering mode, I always try to focus this way on a part of the scene to get the best (imho) lighting settings, then reframe and take the picture.
most of the time I'm in spot metering mode, only when I can't get any good results I'll try the other settings.

The pp for the most pictures is a bit of noise reduction of the sky and marginal adjustments in shadow/highlight.

Only on the picture of the chemical plant I used Image/Apply Image (cymk mode, blending linear light, with 10% opacity)

The full exif info can be seen on my flickr pages, just click the panorama and you'll be there
