Flat 420

Initially I stared at this for a good twenty five seconds trying to ascertain whether it was looking down from above, or looking across from another high rise - as it turns out, I'm still a little non-plussed - with elements looking like both.

Obviously from reading the comments I now know it's high-rise apartments!

I think my only point of criticism is that it's not straight - leaning to the right a little, though I wonder if it would make it any better as a photo. Ideally I'd like to see the full res piece, as I think this is also limited in the size it appears on my screen. I know that if I lived with this vista as my view, I could easily spend days just staring out. Hong Kong is an amazing place.
What do you think?

Geez I spent ages staring at it and trying to make out whether it's a shot taken from above, looking down on streets with cars and so on...or a normal shot of houses...

slowanimation Featured By Owner May 4, 2011
holy dissorientation batman it makes me nauseous but at the same time I want to eat it all up. Is it really that cramped or is this a specific lens that you did this with or possibly PS? Your style is amazing as always bro...

how did you NOT get your own reflection in there...unless it is there and I just can't see it...
I would love to paint this scene!
zerocomplex Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2010  Professional Photographer
It's there! Just hiding in the patterns, not very opaque.

This has to be one of the most amazing photos I've ever seen, but

I can not for the life of me actually see what it is. I can identify some buildings, air conditioners, the crane, but... was there ANY manip involved? Double Exposure/Negative? Really, this is truly amazing.
zerocomplex Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2010  Professional Photographer
It's about the same as a double exposure, just reflections from our glass. I think without the reflections it's still pretty awesome, Hong Kong is a billion stories.
Really this is MIND boggling. :omg:

So are we looking at the buildings the right way up, with the road down the bottom of the image, or upside down?
zerocomplex Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2010  Professional Photographer
Both, considering the glass, though the photo was taken normally, as in normal perspective.
OH I see! Absolutely incredible! :clap:

Eric64 Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2010
Holy Baloney this is amazing!

It took me quite some time to figure out just what was going on before I realized that there is some form of reflection over it, I'm guessing you took this through a Window?

I'm pretty sure that my mind finally stopped playing tricks on me and I can see it now, still a little confusing, but that just makes it... WOW :D.
zerocomplex Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2010  Professional Photographer
Yep, through a window, thank you! :)

Loraeamgrinsen Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2010
I canīt believe, that this is a real shot or is it photomanipulation?. I canīt figure it out, but it looks amazing.

intricate-illusion Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2010
That's just insane. :faint: I get confused just looking at this, in real life it would just be impossible. The amount of detail in this photo is incredible as well.
deviatarte Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
the saturation and colour balance on this is impeccable!!

at first i didn't like it because it's a very noisy photograph, but the colours redeem it :] it almost reminds me of a storybook illustration.
