    * the seamless flow is also seen in terms of line flow in celing and the symmetry enhances it.

    * is there a couple there?
    i think this shot is just same like sitting in dark and gazing millions of lights from stars
    same ambience and feel of vast space and seeing a different world on other side of glass.. a man made beautiful world..
    both world brings a sense of wonder

    * the luminous feel and the soothing colours are so apt.. like a heaven on earth freezed..

    * the eye travels at every point and it holds and pauses there and one wonders and then one sees another thing and another wonder.. and then another spot and another wonder... ohh.. you can gaze this endlessly ..again just like gazing the night stars.. and wherever you look, you connect a different thought,.. a different story

    * i am really happy to see this shot and you after so long... welcome back:)

    Nicely done, love the symmetry of the shot

    Your vantage point and the perspective is just spot on.. I can hardly notice the wide angle "lens distortion" at all... which means you really pay attention to every aspect... the symmetry is perfect..

    Picture perfect composition and the inclusion of that couple in it is like "sone pe suhaga"...

    Please visit my facebook as well.... but wait, I don't do facebook....crap!!!!!!!

  • ...arpi... 4y

    this is gorgeous, Ankur! such an impressive perspective, you have something new and interesting in every shot. I have yet to do a multi-image panorama. ... Indeed I was wondering where you disappeared, good to see you back.
