I would like to thank John Woo http://ift.tt/1nVaE6y, for introducing me to this wonderful place and I hope my rendition of this much photographed viewpoint matches his high standards.
Overlooking some of Shanghai’s most notable sights including the historic Nissin Shipping Building and The Bund, this was captured at ‘New Heights’ – a restaurant perched on the top of Three on The Bund.
As with most of my work, this was straight out of camera but for the panoramic crop. Safe for a tall tripod and a camera with manual mode, it’s a no brainer to replicate this postcard view. You DO HOWEVER NEED one of the following: (1)overcome the bouncer(s) at the level one lift lobby if they sense a tripod, (2)at the entrance to the restaurant, charm the pretty Chinese ladies with whatever it takes if your interest is but for the view &/or (3)burn a small hole in the pocket as the food and drinks at these restaurants (with killer roof top views) don’t come cheap! You just can’t have the cake and eat it, can you?
Please do not feel obligated to vote BUT do leave some comments as I value them MORE.
This is the first of “a tale of three cities” series; my last on 500px for a while. As much as I would love to, I have precious little time (yes.. since September 2013) to interact with so many of my (500px) friends (I love you all!!!) and those who know me will understand that it’s not my style to go around clicking Likes & Favourites and leaving just one liners. And I’m finding myself leaving just one-liners so it’s about time to let go. However, please feel free to write on my wall should you want me to appreciate (not critique) your latest upload. I will try my best to login to comment.
For those interested in my oldies, I’ve put them in my Sets.
I am currently refining my skills / passion in the invisible spectrum (UV-VIS-NIR) while at the same time exploring the basics of wide-field astrophotography with a DSLR. This is an extremely new subject for me! Do drop by my Facebook Page (http://ift.tt/1ovULG8) to view my latest uploads or even for a chat (photography, I hope).
See you in June 2014 where I’ll share some of the city of Taiwan’s snapshots!
