Do you think I should post all my photos here, or keep them for the Cityscape thread as I do. Here, I was just thinking of posting Only my aerial pics as & when I take it. What do you Suggest.

It's your choice. You can run both threads.

I have posted many of your Kolkata pics in the international section.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=730554

But you can start your own thread in this section:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1088

But here is a tip (that I too don't follow - but it is a good one) from Taller, Better:

Quote:
Personally I think people should limit the number of photos in each entry to about a dozen, max. Each page has 20 entries, and if all of them are packed with 50 photos, no one waits for it all to download; everyone just clicks on a new page and ignores the photos on the overloaded page. Therefore people actually discourage viewing of their own pictures.
Another tip (my personal) - never use any positive adjectives in the international section - let the pictures speak for themselves.

Nice pictures! as kolkatausa would say: why are they building a slum upon the terrace of that mall on Sarat Bose Road?

It's probably a party pandal. It's not a mall.
