I said "tweaked"
And yes, when you adjust colors it's considered "tweaked"

Sorry dude, like I said, I can't change his opinion and neither can you. Let it go and stop acting so bitter.


I'm pretty sure I like Hong Kong and Shanghai more than him, but his opinion isn't going to ruin my day, know what i mean?

I think we have to put a sort of criteria first in our mindset before we start this thread until it prolong up to this post before we assume that this skyline is better than other skyline or vice versa. Judging skyline just only base on what the pictures show is very anemic. Good or worst skyline cannot only be judge because it a minimal or populated skyscraper or it has a very futuristic designs. Sometimes the angle of taking pictures can judge the skyline a better or a worst one. We have to look into the totality of the city skylines like considering the urban planning and how every building designs interrelates each other. The proportionality of every buildings and how the flow of every heights proportion the whole proximity. This is just my idea and I presume that there is no better or worst skyline coz every one has it's own advantage and disadvantage.

In this case, almost every pictures in this thread can be considered ''tweaked" cuz all of them were taken by the digital cameras or DSLRs. The only difference is that some were automatically adjusted by the camera's built-in program as the others were done by the Photoshop.

Why is this argument even brought up? If Imperfect Ending doesn't like Hong Kong's skyline, its his opinion. For me personally, Hong Kong's skyline is ranked number 2, while I believe Shanghai is ranked number 1 (I lived in Shanghai and you have to see the Pudong skyline in person why I like it so much!).

Yeah, i totally agree, the impact the pudong skyline gives to your real eyes is much much more than what you see in just pictures.

It's certain that there is no one is being attacked, have you ever seen some one got punched in the face for talking too much? To me, it's just a discussion. (this is my 2nd post on this issue)

Yes, I agree with you that opinion is just an opinion and everybody can express his/her own opinion on the internet, but please just be fair. If you said XXX city is ugly, no problem as long as you explain convincingly why its ugly or why its uglier than the city you posted, or else other members cant help but think you are biased when taking in both cities pictures.

People here should really learn that no matter how much they waste their time here, their opinion on Asia's best skyline is a waste of breath because frankly no one cares. And the more you argue, the less people continue to care.

So please stop bickering.

Thanks for the clearification,

and for party_animals, it is also my freedom to express my thought/opinion on someone else's opinion, why would anyone attack me for that either.

I was just responding to her saying that she rather sees one grand photoshopped picture than many realistic ones
( Need no response, best to carry on )
