fantastic photo thread! Don't see why this city gets ragged on so much on this website. Probally jealousy from other Americans.

Some shots are good. You should sharpen your shots by using "Unsharp Mask" in Photoshop with 150 / 2.8.

It will be a great aesthetic advancement for cities (Other than burying the cables) to have total wireless transmission for electricity and phones.
