Is this you in the Shanghai smogscape?
« on: March 30, 2014, 08:32:51 AM »
Wandering around Shanghai's Pearl Tower with an Ixus 310HS in hand, I couldn't resist taking this shot of a Canon-lover posing posing for a Nikon.

You can see on the left how the distant buildings are lost in smog. This was a sunny day. It is so sad that Shanghai has this year succumbed to severe pollution. There follow a shot in mid-afternoon from the Pearl Tower over the smog-shrouded city, and another of relatively close buildings lost in the smog.

(All taken on the little Ixus 310HS I bought as a foolproof point and shoot for my wife last week - sold dirt cheap from the local dealer clearing out old stock. The little Canons are just so good).

Nice photos Alan.

I was there last year. All I can think of Shanghai is traffic ::)

Fortunately Shanghai is not always smoggy, at least it was clear when I was there in 2015 :) Here's some pano's I processed recently. Almost done editing pics from my China trip more than a year later...

Got some strong magnets there!  ;D :o
