Pictures 5-7 are nice shots but they lack contrast. HDR is not to KILL the contrast, but to enhance it!
The other pictures a great! HK looks awesome!

Thx! The amount of contrast is a matter of taste and the configuration of one's screen. Mine is calibrated with software. I agree with you on image 7, the other 2 are on the border.

Thx alot. I assume you are a photographer then. With regards to the contrast if you have a new cam like I have it always takes time to re-learn your processing.

Hong Kong and Dubai. I can't pick which is "better". I like em' both too much to argue.

That is true. You always start as a newbie if you have new model! But considering that, it is awesome work! Keep on posting!

Okay, obviously Hong Kong has the best skyline; there is really no debating that but the question is....which is the second best skyline in the world. Chicago probably is number 2.

Chicago just doesn't have a skyline filled with generic looking blue structures like some other top rated skylines discussed throughout this thread, it has a mixture of the modern ground breaking architecture and attractive historic and older buildings (which most other top rated cities in this thread do not have).

Has shouting become the new way of communicating? Today it seems that many people like to shout here.

Since when is the use of colour equated with shouting?
