Now I think Dubai has the best skyline in Asia.



It seems like you still don't understand the difference between FACT and OPINION.

Now let me make it more simple for you.

FACT: Obama is the current president of the US.
I can't argue against it because I'd be a fool to say otherwise.

OPINION: Hong Kong has the best skyline in Asia.
I can easily argue against this since I think Dubai has the best skyline in Asia. And of course it's still only my opinion since other people can disagree because it's not a fact.

Everyone is entitle to their opinion, and you have no right to impose your opinion to others.

To my fellow SSC members, please continue to post pictures of your asian cities.
Ok, I'm not going to argue about that fact and opinion thing but here's my thing. This thread is very opinion generated and will not going to achieve even a pound of fact if the forumers here will only be chauvinistic even in their choice of skyline which is the great hindrance in achieving the purpose of this thread. To find the Best skyline in asia/

Why not just have a poll mod? or just rename the thread or make a new thread instead? why don't just make it "the best skylineS is Asia?" Coz the forumers here(no offense intended) are just defying the essence of this thread by posting pictures of their cities eventhough(let's be realistic), It's not the best in Asia.

Ok i know that is just my opinion and obviously will not going to hurt you guys here. And as you all say, " everyone is entitled in their opinion" so let me keep it that way. But if you want to heed, tnx!

And, I'm not stopping you to post pictures of cities here.Who ever said that? Hey, I'm just one person and there is a magnitude of you. But let me say this, if your kind of trend in posting pix here will continue, you will not going to achieve your purpose even if you reach thread 200

Hey thaiSiamese, Alright I'm going to concede. And I feel that I'm the one rising as the antagonist here sorry for that you got me on that opinion and fact thing I think I really have to focus in my logic 101 this semester,. haha,. so, I rest my case

I do insist on discussing the best asian skyline, but sometimes the picture spams (in this case video spams from Anachak), totally destroys the thread and my impression on the city. People post way too many pictures of Bankok and Manila that it turns out to a negative effect on people (at least me).

I would prefer a single shot of a truly amazing photo, like this, than a twenty low quality, low res photos.

Posting only one photoshopped picture is deceiving.

Could it even be considered "High Quality" when the contents are so tweaked?

I'm pretty sure I still see a cat but the lights probably have been played with

What photoshopping?

Instant clearer skies, greener trees, more-colorful buildings etc etc.

The latter is more or less how it would look to the eye. Cameras don't capture magnificent colours, they tend to take blurry images and/or make them look very hazy. If there were no real need for photoshopping, people wouldn't.

I'm all for photoshopped skylines, provided buildings aren't added etc.

The two photos you posted do not differ in such a magnitude that i would rate bangkok's skyline higher based on the photoshopped photo rather than the original one.

Moreover, in the photo i posted the richness in color was due to the long exposure time when the shot was taken. You can tell from the trails left by the cloud and the ships.

And most importantly do you think such tiny difference in color you demostrated would change the impact of that panorama? As i am saying, photoshop has its limit, the essense of a quality shot exists in its composition, the skill of the photographer and of course the shot subject itself.

but normally by wrong or exessive use it turns tigers into a cat.
